Poof! went America, and was suddenly replaced by a new ocean in a puff of smoke. How would this impact the rest of the world do you think?

Pretty much this. State economies are so interdependent now that this would be the result. Just look what Greece was doing to everybody.

I agree. It isn't death I fear, it's no more comics.

I guess it'd be harder to differentiate the Atlantic ocean from the Pacific. Assuming people are in the middle of the ocean instead of disappearing with the county, I'd swim around circling like a shark ready to take the bodies of the week swimmers and use them as a raft. Then I'd make my way to Canada since it's the closest, about a distance of 230 mils. So I figure it'll take me about five too eight weeks, less if I can figure out a way to make a sail from the clothes of the corpses of my raft. I think I'll call it the S.S. Necrosis.

Do you mean the entire continent, or just the USA?

Also, do all the people die, or are they scattered across the world?

If an entire section of a continent suddenly disappeared it would most likely have a large environmental impact.

Some Food prices fall, other food prices rise dramatically, tech stocks fall, the cost of Oil plummets dramatically....illegal workers like East Europeans, Cubans, Mexicans have no work. Countries like China would be stuck with worthless Treasury notes, they helped bail out the US banks during recession but with America now gone the Chinese with all those dollars are holding something that has the same value as toilet paper. The internet cuts in many parts of the world, Africa gets even more messy.

World's Eco system, the ocean currents get fuckedup, birds fly around with nowhere to land, the weather in Europe feels like Alaska and Siberia

Gobal war security, Russia and China might actually cut their budget since they would now be the top dogs and no longer have to compete with the USA, a place like Israel ....trouble....Israel once defended itself without US support, Eisenhower was once very reluctant to support Israel, they had to use French military equipment. Today I'm not sure they can win without US support, Syria, Egypt, Iran, Lebanon....all show degrees of hostility to the Jews, it is possible Israel gets destroyed by several Arab nations. Middle east completely destabilizes

Australia, Britain get worried as they no longer have a big brother

...the English language would become less important, Spanish or Chinese or French might become the business language or global language

The terrorists start burning someone else's flag

America as in the Social and Political Order that makes up the Concept of America or America as in the Totality of the Land itself that encompasses America ? And when you say America are you saying America as in the entire region North and South America together or just the United States.

Maybe he just means the Flag?

California splits, becomes its own lala hippie LSD mickey mouse latino gangbanger land or maybe Japan buys California. Alaska breaks away and becomes a nation of fish and bears. Boston, New Jersey, Florida....that's easy Cubaland II, Irishland II, Italianland-II. Texas secession, that's easy Texans don't really connect with America anyways, they were only looking for an excuse to break away and can now live in their own land of beef slabbing, churching, gun-totin' shepherds. Louisiana? maybe they could sell themselves to Montreal or Paris
