Note that broad regexps (eg. "foo.*?bar") may not match as much here as they do in the "Search Results". The same is true for terms that include whitespace (you can prevent this by using a regular expression and \s+ instead of spaces).

Here is a video Grav-Mass greeting .
On December 25, Isaac Newton's birthday, we celebrate the existence of comprehensible physical laws. Remember, Gravitation is a well-established scientific theory, but Intelligent Falling is just religion pretending to be science.
Please take some time to read this post about grav-mass celebration traditions of years past
Here's a gallery of Grav-Mass cards that you can contribute to.
One way to celebrate Grav-Mass is to decorate a tree with apples and other fruits. Glue them or attach them, but not too well! The idea is that occasionally a fruit should fall. Put them on the tree no more than 2 feet up, so that they won't get damaged or hurt anybody when they fall. Investigating and perfecting the methods for doing this is a great way expose a child to the process of scientifically studying the behavior of the physical world.
Another way to celebrate Grav-Mass is by throwing a ball or fruit back and forth.
Another way to celebrate Grav-Mass, in a group, is by telling each other about scientific knowledge and understanding, or discussing what kind of experiment could answer an unresolved question about the world.

I think the idea of Grav-Mass was conceived by science fiction writer James Hogan.
On Dec 19, 2012, I opened an envelope and saw what I believe was the first Grav-Mass card ever made. It was made and sent to me by Simon and Jane Whiteley. Here are the images that appear in the card, in case you would like to make some.
