T H E S O L A R S Y S T E M directed by M. Night Shyamalan
The haps: Here's a little sequel to the comic from last week: in case you were wondering if there were some balls still to trip, the answer is YES. If the sun disappeared not only would we not know about it for eight minutes, but we'd still keep happily orbiting that non-existant sun too! The planets would stop orbiting from the inside out one-by-one as the change in gravity reached them; that seems like a neat thing to imagine seeing.
If gravity DID travel instantly, then we could send messages across arbitrary distances in a moment, and we'd call each other on gravaphones and they'd probably be heavy or something, I don't know! I AM JUST A GUY
