What would be the most significant thing to happen if a rope (or wire) tied the Earth and the Moon together?

  • The moon would crash into the Earth
  • The moon would breakup at the Roche limit
  • The wire would turn the Earth into a giant electromagnet
  • The Earth would turn into a giant yo-yo.
  • The moon would orbit every ~24 hours, significantly changing the lunar calendar
  • The centripetal force would rip out the Earth's core
  • All man-made satellites would be destroyed, causing great havoc
  • Moon landings would become significantly easier
  • The rope or wire would break, no matter how strong it was
  • The Vulcans would show up for First Contact causing yet another revision to the timeline
  • The Galactic Police would snip the rope and put the Earth on probation
  • Some idiot would get terrible, terrible, rope burn
  • We finally get those golf balls back

Woohoo! It made it as What would be the most significant thing to happen if a rope (or wire) tied the Earth and the Moon together?
