Don't think of it as leaping. An object's location is not well-defined unless and until a measurement of its position has been made. In Classical Mechanics, the motion of a particle is given by its position and its momentum. In Quantum Mechanics, the fundamental "thing" that controls a particle's motion is its wave function, and wave functions are mucho ...
You should be able to do it by jumping off a table onto a spring scale. Simply film the jump with a high speed camera and look for the shockwave that moves through your body as you are landing and note when it reaches your neck. At the same time note the distance the spring has moved (call it point x). Then note how much further the spring moved afterwards ...
Probably Mt. Chimborazo has the MOST gravity, as being in the "fattest" part of the planet and as one of the highest mountains you will have LOTS of mass generating more gravity (remember the more mass, the more gravity).
The problem with the reasoning above is that it considers only the effect the measurement has on the covariance matrix and does not consider the displacement vector. While the covariance matrix of the resulting state does not depend on the particular measurement result, this is not true for the displacement vector. As a result, when doing the partial trace, ...
