Why doesn't water fall off the Earth's surface due to its round shape?

This goes along with the question of why don't we fall off the earth if it is round. The answer is because gravity is holding us (and the water) down.

because there is no gravity strong enough around earth for water to fall of the earth

Gravity....of course!

one thing you might want to consider with this one is the center of mass, since that is where the bulk of the pull from gravity will come. Try it out with a basketball/any spherical object. If you put your finger on the surface and were pulled in to the center, look at the direction your finger would have to move: straight down, not off the edge.

Gravity pushes it down just like it does to everything else on Earth.
