What about the planets that have greater gravity than us? All RBs?


I think you could fill the ball with helium, or a lighter gas, to make it float.

Just found another website that helps put into perspective just how vast the Universe really is.

I used to think about all of this stuff all the time. All of the big questions.

Like: can you imagine an eternity spent in heaven/hell? That's not just a long time, it's FOREVER. (kid in sandlot) FORRREVVVVERRRRR.

If the universe is closed (as in not infinite), and science strongly suggests that it is, then what lays outside of it? And can we even comprehend an ever-extending universe?

If God created the universe, who created God?

If the Big Bang was the catalyst of the Earth's creation, where did that spec of matter originate from?

... then I found alcohol. Now, thinking is left for smart people. ;-)

It's a good thing I don't smoke weed, or I'd never get any work done. :-b

I disagree. A lot of people who 'think' aren't smart people at all.

1st Law of Thermodynamics states that matter or its energy equivalent can neither be created nor destroyed under natural circumstances.

I would guess that return-men almost always call for the fair catch, too... :-b

And Randy Moss would be an even greater threat for the jump ball

Chad Pennington could throw over 10 yards...
