What a nonsense. The earth isn't a perfect sphere, that's true, but the
"squash factor" (relative difference between polar and equatorial radii) is
around 1/300. This would correspond to a change of angle from 60 to 59.8
degrees. That's not to mention that there is no apriori reason for the base
angle of a pyramid to be 60 degrees.they can be anything between 0 an 90 (non
inclusive.
