Patently Ridiculous

What better way to while away a Saturday afternoon than to read some random patents?

"It is appreciated that gravity will operate on a mass to pull it down to the surface of the earth. As the area of a mass increases, the gravitational pull of the earth on that mass also increases. Thus, when one leans his head down, he effectively increases the mass area upon which the earth's gravitational pull can act upon. From this it can be reasoned that a person that keeps his head down may have a greater chance of falling to the ground after a stumble than a person that keeps his head up."
-- U.S. Patent No. 6,886,186.

I wonder if patent examiners actually read these things.
