Tell me

There's something I wanna know. When I'm on a moving bus and I jump (not that I make a practice of jumping on buses....or even riding buses...or even jumping next to buses.....I'm just not the jumping type....but, anyway...) why don't I end up at the back of the bus? Or jumping on a plane....why aren't I slammed into the potties in the back of the plane? It's not that I want to be slammed into the back of a moving mode of transportation. I just wanna know why it doesn't happen. I'm sure there's some name for this. Some scientific theoretical-heretical-hypothetical-whositwhatsit. (That's a hi-tech term for "something-or-other")

I started to type out a long answer, but being the smart person I am, I assumed someone else had already answered for me. I was right, of course :)

    Me

    I'm older than Rolling Stone magazine, younger than color television, bigger than a Xbox, smaller than a Winnebago, taller than a goat, shorter than a horse, wider than a parking meter, "narrower" than the Space Needle, serious as a heart attack, sillier than the tickles, smarter than the average bear, dumber than my Mom, prettier than dirt, "uglier" than a sunset, girlie as a pryncess, moves through crowds like a linebacker, anal as an accountant, laid-back as a slug, darker than white chocolate, lighter than butterscotch pudding, louder than a whisper, "quieter" than a fog horn
