    Answer: I could always design a new machine that would be able to lift it.

    Question #7: are you a stickler for details?

    I'd just invent a way to go to Saturn and then build a machine that would lift Earth. Simple.

    But since Saturn can conceivably float in water, how would that work? (Let's not forget also that in order to get back to Earth, you would need to slingshot past Jupiter and then renavigate the asteroid field... all while "carrying" a machine that is capable of lifting the earth. Not to mention the fact that Jupiter and Saturn are only on the same side of the Sun every so often. Jupiter's orbit being 11.86 years and Saturn's being 29.46 years. Your turn.)

    You didn't mention that I was required to "return" to Earth. You just asked if I could find a way to lift it. And ze answer is yes.

    If your question is "how would you lift earth and then return to Earth?", then my first option would be to take Arnold Schwarzenneger hostage, put a sharp object to his temple, force him to do a handstand (on the earth), and then tell him to start pushing as hard as he could (I'd push his feet) and, inevitably, his strength would begin to lift the earth. Whenever we were done, we would very carefully put the earth back in its original place. Also, I'd tell him that while he was lifting, to continue to rotate the earth on its axis so that the earthlings could continue to conduct "business as usual" while we did our lifting. "Construction zone - feel free to conduct business as usual" - type of thing.

    It's really a much more simple solution than people think.

    Ah, so you are going to construct a device on Saturn (a gas giant with no surface except perhaps an iron core) that will remotely lift Earth?

    Question: What kind of materials are going to be used for this? Will they come from Earth or will they be harvested from Saturn itself, its rings, or moons (of which there are many)?

    And are you positive that you can create a machine that is so powerful that it combats the Sun's own gravitational pull? Considering that 99.9% of the solar systems mass is just the Sun, how would that be possible?

    Your turn.

    I have a team of contractors who have already discovered how to live on Saturn - that part is taken care of. The short of it is that we would have to live in these huge "cranes" (massive) that sort of "hover" above the surface, yet are still anchored to the core and anchored to other planets (cool, right? tell me about it!). These cranes are attached to other planets via "flexible arms" - as the planets get further away from each other (or closer to each other), the crane arms extend futher, or come in closer. In other words, the planets can continue to orbit, uninterrupted. But, there we are "anchored in" - and pretty much able to conduct business as if we were on the "surface" of Saturn. The materials - they come from.......ehhh......I'm hesitant to say this, but they come from outside of this solar system. My team of contractors and I are dealing with materials with properties that can withstand anything and everything that occurs within this little baby solar system that we reside in. It's like we live here on this little block on the edge of town, but the other solar systems from which we are drawing resources from - they are like "the rich neighborhoods" - so naturally, when we first went there, we were like poor folks going to Beverly Hills - we were like "Oh. My. Goodness." So, yeah, there's a lot involved, but, it definitely can work.

    As for gravitational pull, you have to account for that when you attempt to "lift". In fact, gravity is indeed one of our biggest allies should we ever need to lift. We would allow the lifting mechanism to sort of freefall (gravity) towards the earth, gaining a huge amount of speed and power, which would actually help tremendously in the lifting. The impact of such a large device on earth's surface, you ask? The lifting mechanism is padded - with a super soft foam. Earthlings wouldn't even know they had just been lifted. Business as usual.

    Please note that this is not something my team of researchers and I are necessarily "planning" on doing - it's just something that we know we could, if ever necessary. I'm going to McDonald's for lunch. Does anyone want a chocolate shake?

    Question #10: If this big padded device hit the earth and picked it up, wouldn't it smoosh people?

    Well, we (my team) have essentially infiltrated the USGS, and many other gov't organizations. We have people in key places in every nation and in every organization. We would put out a "false alarm" for a potential catastrophe in the Antarctica region (aka - all humans get out of Antarctica and the extreme southern hemisphere). Once people were cleared out, then the device would sweep earth off it's feet by lifting it from the Antarctica region. But, it's all hypothetical at this point. Why? Are you "in need" of having the Earth lifted anytime soon? Any particular reason? I personally think we're doing just fine, and therefore don't see a need to do any "heavy lifting" at this point.
