There’s a story floating around the internet that on April 4th, 2014, it will be “Zero Gravity Day”. The story goes that due to a planetary alignment, everyone will be able to float in the air for five minutes because there’s zero gravity.
That is simply the dumbest thing I have ever heard. Sorry to anyone who was genuinely excited to float in the air for five minutes, but it’s physically impossible for Earth’s gravity to take a five minute break. And on top of that, there will be no special planetary alignment on April 4th. See for yourself.
What’s discouraging is the number of people that believed April 4th was going to be “Zero G Day” (especially when you remember that this hoax was already done in January of this year!)

Hey I’m really sorry to rain on your Zero-G-Day parade, but gravity is actually pretty cool.
To help you understand the importance of gravity, here are 31 GIFs that will make you thankful for gravity’s existence:
You see, without gravity, boobs and booties just wouldn’t bounce the same way they do now.
So while 5 minutes of zero gravity would have been cool, I’m thankful that we have gravity because there’s nothing better than watching a pair of big boobs or a big ol’ booty bounce up and down and around.
