      Well I’ll tell you what would first happen. We’d all get very bad sunburn and then get scorched and die. Not good.

      But the gravitational pull is just too great. Even if everyone on the Earth jumped all at once, we still wouldn’t budge and neither would the moon.

      I’ve got a brill fact for you, abc1. The massive earthquate in Chilie in March shortened our days. Literally our days are shorter now than before March 2010. You won’t notice this though as there’s only a 1.26 microsecond difference.

      That’s a pretty cool fact, don’t you think?
