Actually, when he gets stuck, you can click on him and yank him out and start him falling again.

Nick, your posting on the question of falling reminded me of Intelligent Falling (IF), the satirical response to the ongoing Intelligent Design (ID) debate.

As you may know, it proposes that things fall not because they are acted upon by some gravitational force, but because a higher intelligence is pushing them down.

This "online petition":http://www.geocities.com/intelligentfalling/intelligent-falling.html 'aims' to treat intelligent falling like intelligent design when making decisions about what theories to teach in public schools . . .

I personally subscribe to the theory of Intelligent Stupidity. Humans could never be as stupid as they (we?) are without the intervention of a higher power. And that higher power is called Congress.
