    1) Go to Pizza hut and take a few pizzas
    2) Go to Central London and rob a bank and maybe some jewels and maybe some things from Victoria Secret

    ...what do you do?
    Take a pic of me making out with Emma Watson. It would be a real photo so the instagram kudos would be off the charts, and coz of the time freeze Emma would have no way to prove it was real so no lawsuit.

    Everyone's a winner.

    Pickles exactly what I said. Also what happens about gravity? Does the Earth stop rotating? Does the sun continue to burn? Do planes stay airborne?

    I assume without time, gravity would have no effect. Acceleration = (distance/time)/time, if time was 0, acceleration due to gravity would be an impossible answer (can't divide by zero). Therefore f=ma wouldn't work.

    Also you'd be blind unless you were moving foward as photons of light wouldn't enter your eyes naturally.

    Gravity isn't affected, planes and people falling from the sky, remain exactly where they are. The Earth stops rotating the sun is still lit and maintains warmth for the day.

    That'd be classic - she'll look like she's in Madame Tussaud's.

    Pickles, you initially specified that time is frozen for people, but you have now introduced some additional laws of this strange day.

    If the Earth stops rotating; my time would be spent really worrying about what is about to happen when time unfreezes.

    How would you disarm the nukes in the world with a Eurofighter?

    The Eurofighter is merely a quick way of getting to them.
