Warning: Gravity is "Only a Theory":

Isn't gravity an explanation of how things fall down, rather than a statement that they do fall down?
Kill all math nerds

Correct. Things fall whether we know gravity exists or not, or have an explanation for it.

If things fall, then why hasn't the sun crashed into the ocean??

Normally, it's the Earth that would fall into the Sun.
In war, courage. In peace, wisdom. In life, friendship.

Because celestial bodies float in the luminous aether that surrounds the Earth? Or because we are constantly falling but, due to orbital motion, also constantly missing.

Statistical Unlikeliness
I thought it was because angels kept pushing the stars and the planets in the sky. The things one can learn on TV Tropes... ^_^
As the size of an explosion increases, the number of social situations it is incapable of solving approaches zero.
See ALL the stars!
[up][up][up][up] Because we moved out of the way.
Da Rules excuse all the inaccuracy in the world. Listen to them, not me.
The system doesn't know you right now, so no post button for you.
You need to Get Known to get one of those.
