There's too little physics talk going on in CPF so I figured I throw this one in and see what happens
You are standing in a field looking at the stars. Your arms are resting freely at your side, and you see that the distant stars are not moving. Now start spinning. The stars are whirling around you and your arms are pulled away from your body. Why should your arms be pulled away when the stars are whirling? Why should they be dangling freely when the stars don't move?
Mmm.. theoretical physics..
Are there any physicists around here? What happens when you look at the stars, start spinning, get dizzy and fall? Is it the universe striking back?
