On observing an apple fall
This one's a bit dubious, as well....at least for a modern scientist. "Downwards" is defined as the direction in which it falls. "The scientifically minded person asks why it falls towards the earth" is probably what you were looking for. --SF
Hmm... I might suggest that's the statistically minded person. MathematicallyMindedPeople might ask what the path it's traversing is, taking into account the gravity of the surrounding objects; or what the pattern to its leaves is, and whether they're in the FibonacciSequence?; or some such...  --AC



..or something. I'm sure there's a witty comment there, it's just that my sense of humour has gone walkies. - MoonShadow
