What would happen if the world stopped spinning?

If the world stopped spinning we would have a very unlikely chance or survival. It depends on what your asking. If the world stops spinning but still revolves around the sun. Or if the world stopped moving all together. There are many answers. If the world stopped spinning but still revolved around the sun then we would have seasons like we do now, but we would either have light or day for 6 months each. It would take a lot of adapting to. So if the world stopped moving all together. Then we wouldn't have seasons. We would either have light or darkness for the rest of our lives, and we would either be in the unbareable cold or the blistering heat.

Who is at fault when you are stopped for a light and the car in front backs up into you?

that would be the person that goes into reverse, because as long as you are stopped it is not your fault. the only possible chance of it being your fault is if you are in motion, but even than it would be a technicality that you could be at fault.

Would Light protons stop you if you were going at the speed of light?

No - you would be stopped BEFORE you reach the speed of light, by your increasing mass (among other things). As your speed approaches the speed of light, your mass would approach infinity, and it would require an infinite energy to actually achieve the speed of light.Note that the "speed of light" is not really about light. It is a speed limit of our Universe; some have described it as the "speed of causality".

If all clocks stopped working, then we would have to be travelling at the speed of light. Which means we would also have infinite density - so we would be a black hole. If we were a black hole, we would all be crushed to the size of a singularity. If we were a singularity, no information could exit that singularity, so this question would not exist.

What would happen if the sun stopped burning?

if the sun stopped burning the planet would freeze up and we would die.
