This thread cracks me up.

The Burj Dubai tower, tallest building in the world, is soon to be completed.* (click on the picture)1Âº of the Earth's curved surface = 111km
Earth = circle = 360Âº360Âº = 39,960km
= Earth's perfect circle = Circle A
The circumference of the earth varies, from 40,075.02km at the equator to 40,007.86 The mean is 40,041.44km. You're out by 81.44km.
1Âº of the Earth's curved surface varies depending on where you measure it, somewhere between 111.312km and 111.133km.
In order to travel the distance of 39,960 km in one day (24 hours), a certain object would have to travel at a speed of 462.5 km/sec.
= radius of the Circle A
In order to travel the distance of 39,960 km in one day (24 hours), a certain object would have to travel at a speed of 1,665km/hr, or 0.4625 km/sec. You're out by a factor of 1,000.
The radius of a circle with circumference 39,960km is 6,359.8315km. You're out by 5,897.3315km.
Area of the Circle A = 672,005.7359km2 = Area of the Square B
The area of a circle with circumference 39,960km is 127,069,433.8904km2. You're out by 126,937,428km2.
C (one side of the Square = 819.7595598m = the projected final height of Burj Dubai tower*.
C (one side of a square with area 127,069,433.8904km2 = 11272.5m = not even remotely close to the projected final height of Burj Dubai tower*.
819.7595598 : 462.5 = 1.772453102 = √3.14159
11272.5 : 0.4625 = 24372.97
Please check your work more carefully in the future, our pyramid-building alien overlords hate sloppy maths.
