Gravitational Wave Question

  1. Feb 3, 2009 #1
    I was just wondering what it would feel like if I was hit by a decently powerful gravitational wave.
    Would I feel pulled to the source of the wave?
    Is there tidal forces present that might stretch me?
    Could a gravitational wave actually kill me? Or destroy things like planets?
