    As I lurk and peruse these forums and many others, I see a sense of transgression pervading the discussion of so-called superhero's. Justifications and guilt-ridden truisms dominate the conversation when it comes to superpowers and potential superhuman feats. Statements such as "It's not possible!", "It's a trick", or, my personal favourite, "Don't believe the weasels" belie a lack of understanding of origin stories and how they change the game for humanity. It is also a symptom of the disease which infects and grips our world like a cancerous tumour with a trillion writhing, outstretched tentacles, squeezing our world out of every last drop of it's vitality.

    For you see, my friends, the ability for humans to take to the skies and fly is not the problem. Gravity is.


    I do NOT blame the individual; there is nothing any one of us can do. We can talk, we can develop, we can try...but in the end, we can only not let this hold us back. We do not need to feel guilty about defying gravity. It is not immoral. It is the right thing to do, to tug on these chains until our fellow man feels the tug and realizes he is confined, though he may blame you before he blames the chains.

    I urge you, free yourselves from the weighty confines of the Earth, defy the cruel mistress of Gravity...take to the skies and FLY!

    FLY MY PRETTIES!

    Tightness = higher fart pressure = higher gas velocity (thrust) = flight ?

    On both ends, I presume? Don't forget where the G-Spot supposedly is.

    replace "from mcdonalds or burgerking" with "but they shot off mah ding-a-ling" and you got my playgrounds version of the song. I was in a rural community so I am amazed at the similarity tbh
