    For as long as there is limited overs cricket - of ten, twenty or fifty overs - there will remain the Sri Lankan spinners' mid-innings choke

    I will refuse to believe that is real. For my sanity.

    I think there isn't an answer to this question yet. Still I'll ask this to people who know much more Physics than me:

    What's the reason for gravitational pull?
    "I want to raise my hand and say one thing. Those who complain about my love for the game or commitment to the game are clueless. These are the only 2 areas where I give myself 100 out of 100."
    - Sachin Tendulkar, as told in an interview published in Bengali newspaper Anandabazar Patrika after his 100th International century (translated by weldone)

    It's because the mass of very large objects (such as planets etc) warp the fabric space itself, creating indentations which nearby objects will "fall" into, making them accelerate towards the large object. At least, that's my understanding of it.

    EDIT: SS in first as usual. Not sure if my understanding is out of date yet or not.

    Or, as above, at a macro scale (e.g relativity), any object with mass 'bends' spacetime, thereby pulling things towards it.



    We still have to reconcile all of the forces into one theory .

    Watched Brian Cox present a programme about space/time a few weeks back. Mind = blown.

    Krauss wrote a book based on that topic.
    Will probably buy this.
