I think I saw this on the History channel or Discovery or something. One of those "What would happen if...". This one was "What would happen if the Earth stopped spinning". The oceans were no longer under the influence of centrifugal force, so they migrated to the poles where they got over 50 miles deep. Some areas of the exposed land were so high that they extended into the upper atmosphere. The surviving humans migrated to the twilight zone next to the ocean.
There were a few holes in the premise, like if the Earth stopped spinning wouldn’t the core stop spinning also? Then we’re back to The Core.
