    The density of the mass. Has to be related to weight then too.

    So we have three aspects, mass, density and weight. All of which relate to gravity.

    Huh. Must be why I'm such good friends with gravity. :D

    Ah yes but my history degree is actually American history which isn't as near old as gravity. Also my specialisms are 20th US foreign policy, the American film industry, and the Nixon presidency and we didn't cover gravity in any of those lectures. And Newton was English. :rofl:

    Well, Nixon was pretty grave. :sigh;

    Newton isn't the sole force behind the concept of gravity. There was that Italian guy.

    Did you know (speaking of Italians) that the depiction of Michaelangelo painting the Cistine Chapel in Spaceship Earth is technically incorrect?

    American film certainly isn't history. And American History as a four year degree? Was there enough to study?

    No more the history of the industry, but I also have a sideline on the impact of movies as a foreign policy tool. Probably more obvious looking at it from this side of the atlantic but the movies that come out of Hollywood tell a lot about how the US feels about itself at that moment in time.

    Four years only scratches the surface.

    And history will be kinder to Nixon.

    Nixon did open the way to talking with China.

    I forgave him his fault's when I saw his face at Pat's funeral. Gosh that was heartbreaking :(
