    Apply the same formula to the earth of Earth so we can see how much earth on Earth there is.

    But it doesn’t form a sphere 1,384km in diameter. So it doesn’t f*king matter.

      Indeed. And water is also endlessly recycled. It’s not like we’re going to run out of it.

      If it was metered by Dublin City Council it would give you 780,781,315,780,522,000 cubic meters. At their rate of €1.90 per m3 that gives a cost of €1,483,484,499,982,990,000.00 before VAT.
