Shut-up Stupid Sunday: Repeal the Law of Gravity

There are a few bills moving through different states that attempt to put legal restrictions on physics and medical science. In Georgia there is a bill proposed by State Representative Bobby Franklin that would make miscarriages illegal and punishable by death. Full Story Here. This law would put an end to the medical fact that 50% of the time a fertilized egg doesn't attach to the uterine wall, or kill any woman who has unprotected sex (I'm not sure what the end goal is). In Montana there is a bill to declare that Global Warming is natural and beneficial. Full Story Here. Basically the point is if you don't like reality you can just pass a law to change it.

I think we can take these ideas one step farther and give our Space Program a boost. The biggest obstacle in space operations is getting the space craft out of Earth's gravity well. Florida could pass a law repealing the Law of Gravity on the launch pad's at Kennedy Space Center. That way we wouldn't need to build huge rocket boosters just wheel the spacecraft out to the launch pad where we've repealed the law of gravity and let them float off.

To anyone who thinks any of these bills are a good idea, I say, “Shut-up Stupid, the laws of Physics trump any man-made law. If you can't see that you shouldn't be allowed out of your house.”

Remind me what century we're in again? Who knew we could go back to the dark ages without needing a nuclear winter?

Idiots. Natural laws have no pity. I think we should go with your plan, abolish gravity via legislation and send all these forward thinking-politicians in the first rocket to celebrate.

Not that I'm opinionated or nothin'.
