Mr. C. was telling his students about a recent moon landing by Russian cosmonauts. He proceeded to ask the class:

"Why do they float while they are in space?"

His student, Mike, raised his hand like a lightning bolt, and, like the unruly immature student that he is, screamed out:

"You'd have to be retarded to not get this one!"

Mr. C. then asked him (after reprimanding him for such an offensive comment about mentally challenged people) what the answer was, if it was so easy.

Mike responded:

"They float because there is ABSOLUTELY NO GRAVITY in space."

Mike was absolutely shocked when Mr. C said:

"WRONG! Oy, I thought this was supposed to be the Talented and Gifted class!"

Why was Mike wrong?

Great teaser. I actually got this because we're learning about gravitational influences black holes have on things.

Just a word to the person who posted the note about gravitational influences - if you are learning about that, you should read a Brief History of Time. Somewhere in there it mentions about how if a being approached a black hole, they would be instantly reduced to matter and energy. Then again, because of the gravitational influences that cause time to stop, that would never happen!

yup there IS gravity in space, in fact acoording to theories gravity is used in as a median for light.

Very good trivia quiz, but was the background information about retarded people necessary? Was it really relevant to the question? I'm sure this quiz would have had the same impact had it been reworded slightly. Just a thought.

Not bad. That obnoxious kid, Mike, sounds like half the people I know: they think they know /everything/.
