The ONLY CORRECT answer, cary, which you keep chopping out of the posts, is:

> It was Galileo who discovered the whole ting, the equation says that the
time

NOT
> mass (which Galileo discovered).

This is THE ONE AND ONLY correct answer.  You're only confusing yourself by
wallowing around in the equations.  Brian already noted that you don't need
to do the simple math to answer the simple question, and he was right, and
you and the STUPID feminazis have done nothing but demonstrate NEGATIVE
KNOWLEDGE ever since.

A simple "Yes" or "No" will do, cary.  Is Brian's statement above correct,
or not?

If you're denying the TRUTH simply because you don't want these girls to
look as STUPID as they are, then you're an even bigger contributor to
NEGATIVE KNOWLEDGE than they are.
