The in-your-face statement "...because of the gravity of the Earth" used to annoy me a lot when I was a kid.
It means that the person you are asking is: a) not interested in answering you, b) does not know anything at all, c) wants to annoy you, or d) all of the above.
Now that I think of it, gravity is actually making a lot of things the way they are, such as "settling down", "going down", "staying where you are", "staying put", "falling"... the list goes on.
I started my Internet citizenship with LiveJournal and DeviantArt. I recently went back to it. Going back reminds me of the time when the Internet used to be (for me) fun in a simple way. Heck, I spent some time doing lovecalculator.com when I was at the heights of my teenage years. It's kind of silly y'know but we liked using it.
Let me see what else was fun that time: mIRC was fun, Archmage was fun... as you age with the Internet, you tend to get nostalgic and long for less complex times.
So here I am again at DA. and LJ ... and it makes me happy in a simple way too. And that's a good thing right?
