Thread: What would kill you first if gravity switched off?

1. What would kill you first if gravity switched off?

1. Being thrown at thousands of miles an hour
2. The pressure inside earth causing it to explode or at the least fall apart all lavay
3. Having the air sucked out of your lungs
4. Explosion of the sun

2. 2 or 4

3. One

4. you wont fly about randomly just because gravitys been turned off. at least not instantly. you still have inertia.

I was thinking this, but I am pretty sure the revolution of the earth crust without anything to hold it together, would cause some imediate problems.

6. thats two

7. I was just talking about the inertia of the earth's crust. 2 is the pressure of the core.

Anyway I am surprised you think 4 is a possible first death, I was about to strike it out when making thiw thread because the eplosion would take a few minutes to get there.

8. dying from the explosion eight minutes after gravity stops or immediately because of the earth exploding is more likely to happen sooner than the atmosphere drifting into space or colliding into shit.

9. im no expert on the GEOMETRY OF SPACETIME or anything but if gravity were switched off i think flying off the planet at however fast miles per hour WOULD be the first thing to kill you, since the idea of everything still being held together by inertia is resting on the idea of movement on a relative plane, which would not be the case with no gravity.

10. inertia. youre also moving at the same velocity as the planet is so you'll stay on it unless the speed of the planet's rotation or revolution radically changes which, since it is a huge object, is not going to happen minutes after gravity is switched off.

11. what does the 'geometry of spacetime' have to do with this lol

12. i think 2 is the most likely option

13. Rayne you've triple posted in every fucking thread the past few days

14. I think it's because you have ADD

15. suck

16. my

17. dick

the way i understand it gravity actually curves spacetime, shit getting uncurved changes velocities of the things previously on the curves

19. gravitons are assumed to travel at the speed of light so it would take a whole eight minutes before the absence of the sun's gravity even begins affecting earth. even if it was instantaneous, the earth still has some angular momentum and it wont just 'stop' moving or radically change its velocity. it will slowly move away from the sun and its instantaneous velocity would decrease even slower. we wouldnt die because we'd fly off the earth, at least not immediately; we'd die because of the cold. of course this is assuming the earth does not break apart and the sun does not explode, both of which are likely to happen much sooner than earth breaking away from its orbit is going to affect us.

20. you quoted the wrong post, DUMBASS

21. or did i

22. Rayne are you in the 40s? Gravatons are a bunch of bullshit.

23. But yes, the effects of the loss in the space time curve would go at the speed of light.
