I heard if you could shrink the earth so it fits between your hands it would feel smooth

and even the Himalayas would not even be felt to the touch because the Himalayas are nothing when compared to the circumference of the earth.

Yep. Apparently it would feel exactly like a billiard ball if you shrank it down to the same size
