Huh?

All I see is a circle with a rubber band.

Should have known it! Gravity is caused by rubber bands!

I almost broke the sides of my monitor swinging that ball around.

Torsten--Yeah, you can get it swinging around but the orbit decays rapidly and the balloon finally stabilizes at a positive y value. I wonder why? I wonder how it loses kinetic energy? Is it possible to break the rubber band--is the ball really a quark?

What goes around, comes around....
A racquetball with memory?
A klingon?
Pesky subatomic gnat?

Here is an interesting look at gravity through the eyes of Dr. Samuel V. Miensinompe.

Worth a peruse.....Seems the link is dead jkmccrann.

In any case, were you posting this idea here, in the ATM section of BAUT, with the intent of defending Dr. Samuel V. Miensinompe's ideas?
