Damn gravity; it gets everywhere, doesn't it...
Looks like it's pretty strong in these parts, much more than in the U.S. Must be why I'm growing horizontally these last few years...

Around 1960, scientists said that computers would be able to make impeccable translations by the end of the 'sixties. Well, at the same time, other scientists predicted that nuclear fusion would replace all conventional power plants of the earth within ten or, at the very most, fifteen years.
They also underestimated other developments regularly. That's how predictions work.

Let's face it, those variations of gravity actually aren't "pretty strong" but absolutely minute. It needs utterly sophisticated hi-tech equipment to measure them.
