I don't understand how gravity works

while I get it that modern physics describes gravitation using the general theory of relativity, in which gravitation is a consequence of the curvature of spacetime which governs the motion of inertial objects. the thing is I still don't understand how gravity works. I am confident that the above average IQ members here and explain to me and other trailer trash just how gravity works.
thanks in advance for you explanations;
Gabby Hayes, the king of trailer trash.

@dyslexia,
Gravity works because of fairies. The heavier something is, the more fairies it has, and they're all wanting to get together with all the other fairies and fornicate like mad, well, fairies.

well then the photons that light up faries bums, do they have mass in their ass making them subject to gravity?

@dyslexia,
In order to wear an air of gravity, one needs to have well drawn down eyebrows, slightly affirmed, and a verisimilitude that's well calculated to mislead a reader not previously aware of the deception.

That's how gravity works...

@dyslexia,
You should see the junk in those trunks.

si , it's not just us trailer trash that can't explain gravity, none of you wooden dick-heads have a clue. so much for understanding politics or religion. I'm left with the question of why can't a make jello with fresh pineapple. Possibly BBB/Okie/Ican or Finn will cut and paste me an answer to that.

@dyslexia,

No, you cannot make Jell-O (or any gelatin based dessert) with fresh pineapple. This is due to the presence of an enzyme called bromelain in the pineapple. This enzyme is a protease, which digests (or breaks down) the collagen based gelatin protein. The digested gelatin cannot solidify and you end up with a soup instead of a gel.

Cooked or canned pineapple can be used in gelatin desserts, because the heat used in canning and cooking destroys the bromelain.

Gravity isn't easy but it's the law.

A situation of extreme gravity exists when Jello fails. I eat that stuff all the time. My recipe: Cherry Jello, with suspended grapes and Wheat Chex. Fresh grapes and Chex only.

@dyslexia,
We're still trying to work out basic vector forces on the "I don't understand how this vehicle works" thread. I don't think we're ready for General Relativity yet Wink

@dyslexia,
It's most likely an electrostatic dipole effect of some sort. There are BIG problems with Einstein's attempt to describe it as some sort of a four-dimensional differential geometry thing.

I love it when you talk about gravity and Einstein. Let's hear more.

Quote:
Scientists from the Evangelical Center For Faith-Based Reasoning are now asserting that the long-held "theory of gravity" is flawed, and they have responded to it with a new theory of Intelligent Falling.

"Things fall not because they are acted upon by some gravitational force, but because a higher intelligence, 'God' if you will, is pushing them down," said Gabriel Burdett, who holds degrees in education, applied Scripture, and physics from Oral Roberts University.

Burdett added: "Gravity"which is taught to our children as a law"is founded on great gaps in understanding. The laws predict the mutual force between all bodies of mass, but they cannot explain that force. Isaac Newton himself said, 'I suspect that my theories may all depend upon a force for which philosophers have searched all of nature in vain.' Of course, he is alluding to a higher power." ...

I may be a simple man. And I may not know much. But I do know that if we allow the gays to marry, our children will need to wear cement shoes in order to walk to school without ascending into outer space.

Sigh. Ok. Here's how gravity works. You hold something up in the air. You let go. It falls down. That's how gravity works.
