GRAVITÉ
GRAVITY



Peter MacTavish était un paresseux reconnu. Ce jour là d'été 1548, si Peter n'avait pas fait une de ses 12 siestes quotidiennes, il aurait pu faire une rencontre du 4ème type. Il aurait pu aussi observer un magnifique et rare spécimen de Dolomedes fimbriatus juste au dessus de sa tête. Ou il aurait pu découvrir la loi de la gravité presque 150 ans avant Newton. Mais surtout, il aurait pu sauver d'une mort atroce Charlotte, sa grenouille apprivoisée....
Peter MacTavish was lazy. On that nice Summer day of 1548, Peter was taking one of his 12 nap-of-the-day... If he had not been sleeping, he could have made an encounter of the fourth kind. Or he could have observed just below him a wonderful and rare specimen of Dolomedes fimbriatus. He could also have discovered the law of gravity, almost 150 years before Mr Newton. But the most important thing is that he could have saved Charlotte, his pet frog.....

12 naps a day - heaven (that's almost as many naps as a cat). Frog knocked dead and went to heaven (not quite as good as the naps)!

Thanks all! :) But there is something more I did not tell... The E.T. had special powers..mm.. let's say powers like in the 21rst Century...Hhehehe. The froggy was not dead yet and E.T. brought her back to his flying saucer, revived her and they live happily ever after... :) Peter had never known what happened to his frog...Hhehehe!

I never really understood that Newton "discovered" gravity. What, before that, everyone was floating off into space?

merlinprincesse a dit…

EXACTLY!!!! Easy.... Everyone floating into space.... Newton discovering Gravity..... Everyone having a weight problem..... Understand? Mwhahahahah! :)
