We wouldnt have any gravity because theres no center of the planet to get pulled to? LOL I dont even know.... Good post though... Makes you think...

we would all eat up the planet and become so fat that we would go into orbit ourselves... lol!
nice post.... don't really know if such a planet could exist... what would be holding it together??? it would need a center of gravity and if it had that then it wouldn't be a donut...

The center of gravity would encircle the hole just like the mass does Hence if you were on part of the "doughnut" with the hole overhead you would still adhere to the surface. Now what if we add centrifical force into the picture? Same thing
