    Yes, we all take a break, or places close as they typically do, or the wind stops blowing for a while, or when even the best of folks stop trying for a moment, you can always, always count on gravity to be there for you.

    I say throw something in the air, just to watch its magic! (Note: try not to hit someone!!!)

    I think gravity is a mischievous way of making sure we don't go spending our money on other planets.

    Then again, folks usually figure things out....

    Of course...1,590 Hoover Dams (or add an additional 530 Hoover Dams if you like beer and nachos) worth of weight on your shins is probably asking a bit much for most folks, and they would just get squished.

    So that explains why, when I have grossed out on food and drink, I tend to say 'dam' it!!

    He ain't heavy.....

    gravity just pulls a little tighter.

    When they say, "keep your feet on the ground", unless you're an astronaut or you love to swim, or a few other possibilities....do most of us have a choice?

    Sometimes gravity is a big weight!

    Who can we thank most for?.......

    "what goes up, must come down"

    (other than some of my stock investments "strategy"!!)


    Thx G!

    I was thinking of posting something about this topic, but searched and found one I already wrote.

    Regardless....

    Here's to Gravity!!

    I was about to harp LT before he covered his statements better. I'm studying for physics right now, and working on lots of ballistics problems.

    I have nothing further to discuss.

    Hey Z,

    You have the right to abruptly stop a post, as if swept up by a Tsunami or something similar....

    For all - I have concluded that that this earthly attraction thing that LT speaks about is in the order of 160 pounds, day after day, unless a person I know quite well (me) decides to skip exercise and substitute with food and drink. Tonight, in the rain and cold, I will practice dragon boating, and when clean and at ease, I will do whatever I can to make up for any lost pounds, with mouth wide open.....
