Earth Will Drop Downwards?

If everybody on Earth went to the North Pole and jumped up and down at the same time, would the weight of it all cause the earth to drop downwards in space?

It won't work like that, you need something big moving at very fast speed to shift the orbit.

though in theory if you concentration everyone at the equator the earth may slow it's rotation a bit due to centrifugal force.

Well I don't know for earth, but for the ice of the north pole it would break and kill all humanity in the cold waters. :fuzzydemon:

No, because the polar bears wouldn't allow it.

Also the idea that we revolve sideways around the sun is false, a more correct way to think about it is that we're constantly falling downwards. After all, if the sun is pulling us inwards, what would be holding us up?
