Re: Its Amazing Really...
"Or the Earth's gravity has increased; that is surely the only explanation for all the bathroom scales..."
That would certainly explain mine. I presume the atmosphere has thinned out a bit now, as well, so there is reduced air pressure - which might explain my slightly expanding stomach.
But for the AC - the Moon's gravity was 1/6 of Earths when I was a nipper. (I left school in the mid 1980s.)
