    Lightbulb Interesting philosophies

    Some scientific philosophies for ya... decide for yourself

    When a cat is dropped, it always lands on its feet, and when toast is
    dropped, it always lands with the buttered side facing down. I propose
    to strap buttered toast to the back of a cat; the two will hover, spinning
    inches above the ground. With a giant buttered cat array, a high-speed
    monorail could easily link New York with Chicago.

    The earth may spin faster on its axis due to deforestation. Just as a figure
    skater's rate of spin increases when the arms are brought in close to the
    body, the cutting of tall trees may cause our planet to spin dangerously
    fast.

    I heard that on the discovery channel, but there reason is that the moon is slowly moving away from the earth like a inch every couple years and over the next thousand years the moons gravity wont affect the earth's so it will start spinning real fast and the start flipping over and **** like that. Im glad i wont be around to see that happen.

    Why not just butter the cat?

    You guys have this gravity thing confused. There is no gravity, the earth sucks.

    If the earth start spinning faster, will the centrifugal force decrease earth's gravity?
    that would have been a little nice.
    At least in the beginning.
