Techno Music + Google Maps + Calculator = ???

I'm not really sure what the author of this video is trying to say, but if they can get U2 to play, I'll be there.

2 sq. feet per person? I think he means that everyone on earth could fit on his property if people didn't have shoulders.

Well, we could all stand along the square's diagonal:
2*sqrt(2) ~ 2.83 ft

But if any Somalian pirates bring their parrots, we're screwed.

I think the answer is simply nothing..... or NULL...

Hmmm... Asq+Bsq=Csq
sqrt(2)sq+sqrt(2)sq=Csq
2+2=Csq
4=Csq
2=C

At only 24 inches across, you could fit into the diagonal if you're not an XL.
I suppose the broad-shouldered of the world could fit if they took some of the space of, say, babies. But it would be less of a concert and more of a Tokyo subway ride.

Oh yeah. My geometry skills have regressed.

Add a foot of space for each person and you only need to lengthen the field to 27x27. Not such a bad trade-off for comfort!

They should consider something similar to Hexagonal Close Packing if they want to be more space efficient.
