If the Sun suddenly exploded in an instant, would it take 8 minutes for the Earth to spin off into space? Or is the effect of gravity and the missing graviton faster than the speed of light?
Also, if you were in a car and travelled faster than the speed of light, when you looked in the rear-view mirror, what would you see?
Earth blocks neutrinos from one side and people on the antipodean side will have more neutrinos hitting them from above and so are forced into the Earth, stopping us floating off into space.

For non-gamers: that's the plot from half-life

They ever get a strong field compression of the electron of a hydrogen atom reducing it's orbit, and they just may have a micro black hole.
But if not, we still can hope for a space/time tear to discourage their continuing folly.
