What would have happened if the earth was square

I just relly cannot imagine what would be the scenario if the mother earth were square. How could we have traveled from Japan to New York. By crossing two sides of the square earth, but would that have been possible. What would have been the case of gravity. It is just unimaginable. Could we be the part of mother earth, could life exist on earth. It is abig question mark. What do you say.

Square or cubed? Technically I think life would be non existent in that case.

Why would life not exist just because the earth was a cube / square? Sure, it's a crazy idea, but I don't see that it would change that much really.

Well, if it was flat and square, then how will gravity be created and the atmosphere. If it was cubed, it wouldn't rotate as smoothly as it does now... so the living species wouldn't get adequate amount of elements and we may not live.

Ha ha ha.. I already imagine what world looks like if our earth is square, ha ha. I think, if our mother earth has a shape of a square, I am sure, from our country where I stood up, I still would see the farthest country that I have never been before.

Be it its a square or round, rectangular, triangular or any form of shapes, as long as it's still earth, i don't mind. So long we are able to live, breathe, eat and survive normally, why bother about the shape? When it comes to travelling, isn't distance part of travelling and that's why planes are invented? I believe gravity will exist no matter what shape it is, just because, it's earth.

We will probably fall off the edge of the earth just like how other people thought back in history when they believed that the world is flat.

That couldn't happen. It is impossible for the Earth to be square. I don't see how the world could function if it were square.

If the earth was square, perhaps it could not turn around. Try to imagine a turning around square, finally its angels would disappear and finally it would be round. I love China

Square would be better than an earth with the shape of a line.
