    1. Why don't we get dizzy from the world spinning so fast? (Contributed by Don F.)
    2. If all one billion Chinese got up on chairs and jumped off at the same instant would the force be enough to knock the Earth off its axis? (Contributed by Don F.)
    3. What is the speed of dark? (Contributed by Don F.)
    4. Is empty space ever in motion? (Contributed by Don F.)
    5. Is a vibration just a motion that cannot make up it's mind which way it wants to go? (Contributed by Don F.)
    6. Since the world is spinning and we feel still if the world were still would we feel like we were spinning? (Contributed by Don F.)
    7. If an unstoppable force meets up with an immovable force what happens? (Contributed by Don F.)
    8. If you were traveling at the speed of light and you turned a flash light on would you still see the beam in front of you? (Contributed by Mark Gilham)
    9. Since there is a speed of light and a speed of sound is there a speed of smell? (Contributed by Sam P.)
    10. When you drop a round object into a bath full of water it makes round waves. When you drop a square object into the same bath full of water, why does it still make round waves? (Contributed by Alex Petty)
    11. How do things become increasingly smaller? (Contributed by Jim Adams)
    12. If the Earth suddenly stopped spinning would we have enough momentum to be propelled into space? (Contributed by Tom Kenyon)
    13. What would happen if we could jump as far as we can fall? (Contributed by W.J. Newhart)
    14. If you scuffed your feet long enough on carpet without touching anything would you build up so many electrons that your finger would explode? (Contributed by Dave Barry)
    15. Where was the man when he jumped off the bridge? He wasn't on the bridge because that was before he jumped and he wasn't in the air above the bridge because that was after he jumped. So where was he? (Contributed by Bakeman)
    16. How come we don't feel the earth spin? (Contributed by webcenteramer)
    17. Why do they call the speed of light warp speed? Doesn't light travel in a straight line? (Contributed by Don F.)
    18. Is it possible to stop an object that is at rest? (Contributed by Sandra)
    19. Why is the 'Weak Force' called the Weak Force when scientists know that gravity is the weakest force? (Contributed by Eric Medlock)
    20. Why is gravity, the weakest of the four known forces, the only force we are always aware of? (Contributed by Eric Medlock)
    21. If light and sound have a measurable speed doesn't that mean that everything we see or hear has already happened? And doesn't it also mean that each and everyone of us is always living in the past? (Contributed by Eric Medlock)
    22. If a person were to travel faster than the speed of light, how would they be able to see where they are going? (Contributed by Don F.)
    23. Why is the speed of light always the same? (Contributed by Science Whatzit)
    24. How come all inanimate objects always seem to move just enough to get in your way? (Contributed by Don F.)
    25. Why does it take a feather longer to fall than a rock if gravity is the same for both objects? (Contributed by beefstu)
    26. If you bought a voodoo globe and spun it around really fast would everybody in the world get dizzy? (Contributed by Alex Petty)
    27. If gravity bends light, how come light isn't refracted as it leaves the sun? (Contributed by Adam Wesner)
    28. For every action, isn't there an equal and opposite malfunction? (Contributed by Canoe Two)
    29. Why do waves break on the beach? (Contributed by MailBits.com)
    30. Is it possible to fire a rubber ball fast enough to dent a meter thick steel wall? (Contributed by Damin Loi)
    31. How did people stay on the Earth before Newton formulated the Law of Gravity? (Contributed by R4v3n din Romania)
    32. Is the reason some people have a hard time writing because the planet is moving so fast? (Contributed by Coop)
    33. Is a chicken crossing the road, poultry in motion? (Contributed by Rodney & Cathy's Joke List)
    34. How can anything in the entire universe be stationery if the planets are rotating and revolving around the sun, satellites around the planets, the solar system revolving in the galaxy, and the galaxies are moving away from the big bang because the fabric of space-time is expanding? (Contributed by Max)
    35. Can you blow a balloon up under water? (Contributed by T.M.)
    36. If the speed of movement is slower than the speed of light, how fast is a moving light? (Contributed by Gord)
    37. According to relativity, nothing can go faster than the speed of light, and gravity travels at the same speed, right? So how can a black hole suck the light in and make it disappear for good? Doesn't that mean that the pulling force of gravity is pulling the light faster than the light can escape? But since gravity and light travel at the same speed, does that mean that all the darkness we see is just light going faster than itself, hence why we can't see it? (Contributed by Mark S.)
    38. What would it be like to have everything revolving around you? (Contributed by Lee)
    39. According to Einstein, you can't run fast enough to catch up with light, and according to special relativity, all motion is relative to the observer. So how can we know the true speed of light if no matter how fast we move relative to our surroundings light still runs away from us just as fast as it was when we were stationary? With this in mind, ponder the question, are we ever stationary when compared with light? Or is it light that is always stationary and we the ones that are moving? (Contributed by Derek H.)
    40. My dog has four legs, I have two. His legs are very short, mine are a BIT longer. When we go for a walk and appear to be going the same speed, is one of us really walking faster? (Contributed by Ellen M. DeBois)
    41. The speed of light is faster than sound, right? But, if light and sound had the same speed, and you were also traveling at this same speed, would you see light first or hear sound first? (Contributed by Meghna Patel)
    42. What’s faster, Light or Dark? (Contributed by Pat)
    43. If you dug a hole through the centre of the Earth, and jumped in, would you stay at the centre because of gravity? (Contributed by CT)
    44. How fast are radio waves? (Contributed by Pat F.)
    45. Why does it take less energy to take an object out of its proper place than to put it back? (Contributed by Don F.)
    46. How come whatever hits the fan will not be evenly distributed? (Contributed by Ralphie)
