# That would be a bad day on Earth

Joshua 10:13 (KJV)

And the sun stood still, and the moon stayed, until the people had avenged themselves upon their enemies. Is not this written in the book of Jasher? So the sun stood still in the midst of heaven, and hasted not to go down about a whole day.

Fucking LOL

So if Usain Bolt is running East at 27 mph,...

That means he's really moving at 827 mph relative to an observer on the moon!

Did you factor in the rotation of the moon?

Love it.

Just think how hot it would be if the sun crashed into the earth.

that would be like global warming times a million.  or something.

I'm pretty sure the moon doesn't rotate?

lol

What if you're in a plane? Should be good...?

no, because its rotation is synchronous with the earth, which means we almost always see the exact same view of the moon.

Depends on which direction you're traveling. You'd survive the sudden stoppage, but landing would be interesting.

What does that even mean? Not rotate in relation to what? The Earth? The Sun?

It spins on it's own axis while also rotating around the earth, but in doing so presents the same side to us.

If you sped up its spin or rotation then you'd see the other side

The "due east" makes it hilarious to me. Such a nerdy (in a good way) thing to make sure and add in.

Umm the moon always 'stays'.

Are there accounts on the opposite side of the world from Jericho of a 24 hour night?
