There has been a commercial on TV lately for ‘moon boots’. These are boots with springs in them that apparently ‘fight gravity’ so you can jump really, really high.
(I remember this product from when I was a kid!)
On the drive home today, Lucas starts telling me how stupid ‘moon boots’ are…
See, if they really did fight gravity, then you’d go up through the atmosphere. You’d get to see space for about three seconds, then you say, ‘Oh! I’m burning because I’m in the atmosphere’.
So either they are lying, because they can’t fight gravity, or they are telling the truth but using them will kill you.
I guess that recent unit on space really taught him something :P
