If you were canoeing up a tree and one of your wheels fell off, how many pancakes would it take to reach the moon?

According to wikipedia:

The distance between the (respective centres of) the earth and moon is about 406,700 kilometres at its greatest. Its equatorial radius is ~1,738 km and earth's is ~6,378 km, so subtracting those you've got to cover about 398,584 km, at most, if you're on the part of earth's surface closest to the moon at the time (neither is precisely spherical, but the difference between radii are the least of your worries as far as inaccuracy goes). Pancakes vary hugely, but I'll assume for simplicity the ones you're using are 0.4 cm thick after you've packed them very tightly to keep them in place.

So 1 metre = 250 pancakes. 1 km = 250,000 pancakes. From earth to the moon = 99,646,000,000 pancakes.

Hrm... good luck with that.

I was actually referring to pancakes as a fuel source, but you get +100 internets for that xD
