When I was 8
My friend's dad tried telling me that gravity is actually caused by the weight of the air pushing us down. I told him it wasn't, it's all to do with the Earth being so large and so it pulls stuff towards it like a big magnet (my brother told me this after watching Sky At Night). His response was that a) it can't be like a magnet because not everything is made of metal, and b) things float about in space because there's no air.

I don't what he made of people walking about on an airless moon 10 years earlier.

There's not a lot of gravity on the moon,
as the moon is small and has less air than the Earth.

Gravity's a myth.
The earth sucks.
