This one was so cute.

And the title also reminded me of David Bowie's "The Man Who Fell to Earth."

I thought this one was really cute, especially the baby. And now you guys make me want to go find Les Cites Obscures.

Hope the daughter can avoid serious collisions until an acceptable age.

Well, maybe if you put her in a giant (well, maybe not so giant at her current age) hamster ball...

Jack Bauer once forgot where he put his keys. He then spent the next half-hour torturing himself until he gave up their location.

I wonder whether we will see a related effect here? How would his falling sideways affect the Earh's rotation?
Oh wait... it says "sometimes east, sometimes west". So no net result, I guess.

if the gravity grew erratic when he was confinded but not out in the open when he was still confined in his clothes. so it must be phycollically linked . so it time he will be able to control his gravity. think of the possiblitys

To quote Sabo when battling Fujitora, "Gravity can work sideway?".
