Attention kids

I overheard you playing with your cousins on the trampoline this morning, pretending you were all skydiving.

While this may work fine in an imaginary situation, for future reference:

If you jump out of a plane and forget your parachute, it is NOT good form to ask another falling skydiver if you can borrow theirs for a few minutes, and then give it back to them after you've landed, so then they can land with it, too. Gravity doesn't work that way.

Thank you.

GRAVITY: It's the Law!

*saw this on a T-shirt recently.

Bashing children's imaginations, again?

Where would we be if Einstein's father had kept reminding him that space and time were constants?

"Gravity doesn't work that way" ?

But it does ON A TRAMPOLINE. You should know that. (Are you sure you're a real doctor?)

It never hurts to ask. At that point, you really don't have anything to lose anyway.
