The planet is rotation at 1000 miles per hour (roughly). Any sudden stop will convert that rotational momentum into another form of energy. I'm just guessing here, but I suspect that 1000 miles per hour of friction would convert to heat.

Also -- everything and everyone would continue moving at 1000 miles per hour, which is super bad for buildings, cars, people, trees, animals, oceans, and so forth. Basically -- "gravity" would be the least of our problems.

Yes it would be bad for everything on the surface, but it wouldn't just stop cold. so their may not be any transfer of kinetic energy to lets say the oceans.

Does this work with a Beer Bong?

I know... I wish to try it on Dec 21......

Hey -- don't shoot the messenger. I was just responding to the OP's "ERRRRT! Everything stops and then reverses!" scenario. I agree -- its about as likely as a super hot vampire woman coming to my room tonight and offering to make me her immortal love-slave, but....

considering that the hypothetical scenario that's being put forth that the world will pole-shift and stop on it's axis, and then reverse it's rotation...
such an event just very well may cause a serious "slamming on the brakes" type feeling.. where we're rotating at such an incredible speed right now.. imagine it just ERRRRRRT! stopping then reversing...

So if i were to stop earths rotation then you would gain .5 pounds?
Nope 0.57 pounds. At the equator.

Now how would the earth rotating around the sun effect that force
-0.10 lb at midnight +0.10 lb at noon. And the Earth revolves around the Sun.

BTW,justice renders to every one his due.So true.

So earths heliocentric orbital force is negligible, compared to is axial rotational force.

Do all the planets have axial rotation or are any rotationally locked like the moon?

Yes, because the radius is so great in proportion to the velocity.

No planets are fully locked with the Sun. I think there is some speculation about Mercury being partially so.

Basically all the water in the Oceans move to the poles, or where the gravity on Earth would be highest. The equator would become a mega continent. And one side of the Earth gets a lot of sun.

Yeah but.
There would be no sky diving anymore. There would be no snowboarding. No hang gliding! No fun!

but remember dear phage, this hypothetical scenario involves the re-gravitation ocurring after the anti-grav scenario...

bell curve style

so plenty of skydiving later.... hypothetically....

Would a reverse bungee?
Of course you would need some padding for the landing.
But that is the gravity loss scenario.
The rotational reversal would be a whole 'nother ballgame.
Don't think we puny little humans would survive that one.

yesssss.

let's all bungee ourselves to the nearest beanie clip bolt!
a reverse bungy is awesome...

might get your ankles ripped off when the mothership tries to harvest you though.
that is not awesome.

I see. So we drift from the surface for a while.
Then plummet. Now that sounds like big fun.

The phrase "I'm on cloud 9" would have a totally new meaning for a while

right.. but that's my point...
if you're up in the air during hypothetical "global anti-grav HAARP made scenario" .. then you're less likely to be swallowed into the mass of flushing current of matter on the surface of the earth than you would in the atmosphere.. floating... no?

hope not...

of course.. i'd want the anti-grav and reactivation of gravity to be a slow shift rather than a quick UP then a FALL.

You are forgetting that the air would also continue moving at 1000mph, so, yep, I'll take some air thank you!

right so consider it like riding a bull...

on the bull you're being rocked around violently..

kicked off the bull ..just say ...straight up in the air for sake of argument..
bull runs off.. you land on your ass right where the bull was when it bumped you off..

posted on Dec, 17 2012 @ 09:58 PM
well not really, the ground would stay put, but everything else would move....so you'd probably land on your butt in what was an ocean

only way out of being flung off would be right at the poles, if the earth stopped spinning you would just stay put as there you are just rotating around in a very slow 360 deg rotation.

Who needs skydiving when you can and jump over your house. Anyone could play basketball like Magic Johnson.

We are a creative species, especially the young.
