3D Blu-ray to 2D - Can I play 3D blu-ray discs on a 2D TV?

3D Blu-ray is becoming the most sought-after thing. Well, if you've collected a pile of 3D Blu-ray discs, how to make full use of them? The most favorable way is to rip 3D Blu-rays to videos with 2D or 3D effect for playing, sharing widely. This guide will help you do the “3D Blu-ray to 2D TV” conversion. 

Q1: I have 3D glasses and a 3D blu-ray system connected to my TV via HDMI cable and optical cord, but I just have a normal 2D TV (not sure if it's plasma or LCD). If I play 3D blu-rays on this, will they work? Will I be able to view it in 3D with the glasses?

Update: The answers so far, while appreciated, aren't clear. Does No mean the discs won't work AT ALL, or just not in 3D? 

Q2: Can 3D Blu Rays be watched in 2D? So basically from now on I might as well start buying 3D blu ray movies for when I eventually get a 3DTV rather than having to go and rebuy the same movies again when I finally do get a 3DTV. But as of now I only have a 2D HDTV, so if I start buying 3D blu rays, will the PS3 be able to switch to 2D or will I have to buy both 2D and 3D movies?
