    And so amazing that our legs are exactly the right length to reach the ground!

    Unless you’re Arthur Dent – the only person in history clumsy enough to fall and miss the ground. #hitchhikers

    I’d say that’s a slippery slope, but it’s on the level.

    It’s funny to watch too.

    That was me coming back from the mail box yesterday. I know it would have made a great you tube fail video.

    In 8th grade, my friend fell up a flight of stairs and broke her tailbone!!! Thus proving that you CAN fall UP a flight of stairs and that a prat-fall on the stairs is incredibly painful and humiliating…as you finish your year carrying a doughnut pillow around with you, or face standing in the back of the room in every class.

    But it might be fun if gravity was light enough to allow us a little bounce instead of a hard impact.

    We evolved in part as a result of our earth’s gravity, not the other way around. If our earth was much more massive, we likely wouldn’t have elephants.

    “It’s an amazingly perfect range” that happened randomly… yeah right…

    Like I tell my middle school physics students — gravity is weak as heck but always wins in the end.

    Of the 4 forces of nature — strong nuclear, weak nuclear, electromagnetism, and gravitation — the latter is by a huge margin the weakest. In doing a simple chinup, my mere chemically powered muscles are able to offset the gravitational attraction of an entire planet.

    One of my favorite bits of jargon from my hang gliding days is the “gravity storm.” Sometimes your lift disappears, or you just can’t find it, and you just can’t stay in the air. You got caught in a gravity storm. Which isn’t the worst thing. You’re flying a hang glider, not a rock. But since the whole point is to stay up, it’s nice to blame the early landing on the idea that gravity can have whims just like the wind can.

    And much as you hate those premature landings, you have to appreciate that when conditions no longer support your plan, the default is to return to earth.___________N.B. The gravity storm, I’ve found, is not limited to endeavors of flight. I’ve experienced it on hilly bicycle rides and even runs. Whatever it is that happens to my hips in certain swims, I can’t tell for sure if that’s a gravity storm or an anti-buoyancy current.

    Gravity is indeed one of the weak forces. Now the force holding the nucleus of the atom together: That’s strong!

    That can sure make you slip up.
