Gravity brings me down.

It's a lame physics joke, but I expect raucous laughter from this blog or else. I teach physics and I know things......

BeepBeep.

No wait!! This is even funnier! F = G m1m2/r2

HAHAHAHAHAHA! Snort, cough, HAHAHAHAAHAHA!

They did a special report about this on our local news the other night. It ended with a heartbreaking video of a little girl who had been injured by a falling flat screen TV. Then they went to a Walmart commercial. They were advertising that their flat screen TV's were on sale. Poor timing?

Ah, the CPSC: the London Silly Nannies of American government.

Upon hearing this news, ACLU lawyers are scrambling to sue Sir Isaac Newton's estate on behalf of the victims of falling stuff.

Hey, the standard model can't even explain gravity. How do you expect WalMart customers to grasp it?

Omni' ... mebbe they'd understand it better if there wuz a substandard model?

Gravity has been going downhill all my life.
