I really suggest you review that. You saying the planet is shrinking?
No. The weight of the ocean water is putting pressure on the crust forcing it down slowly. This is very very slow.
As JohnL mentioned the continents are also rising because the ice sheets are no longer holding them down.
The crust of the planet is floating on liquid rock.

Cool.

Do I get a raise?
Great, JW is the Pun King.
That's punking awesome dude.

Yep. May I assume the weight of the Himalaya and the Andes is putting pressure on the crust forcing them slowly down? This is very very slow of course, but in geological times, they gonna disappear in deep holes?

This is really bullshit talk by Armadillo.

The weight of sea water is close to 1 tonne per cubic meter. The weight of continental landmass is close to 3 tonnes per cubic meter. What is heavier?

It is the other way around. Continents are slowly sinking. The crust is much thinner under oceans due to the fact that heavier continents are pressed deeper into the magma.
