Here is another way of thinking about our movement through spacetime.

Take two cars having a race.  The track is 100 miles long, and each car crosses the start doing exactly 100mph.  The first car has all of it's motion in the direction of the track.  The second car travels diagonally across the track, while still going 100mph.  Therefore, it covers less distance down the track than the first car in the same amount of time, thereby losing the race.

The same can be said about our movement through spacetime.  When we are moving in any direction (like car 2), we are covering less ground in time (car 1).  So, the closer you get to the speed of light, the slower you travel through time.

I think I understand now. This is a much better picture. Thank you Engy Baby, you are no longer dead to me.

Jamesblonde one day in a physics course and you'll understand why your theory is wrong.  The earth catches up to you because it is accelerating, and you are moving at a constant velocity.  That means when you jump up, you accelerate when you are touching the ground pushing up, but then when you leave the ground, you are at a velocity that doesn't change.  The earth however, is still accelerating and is very able to catch up to you.

But on most things it just goes whoosh straight over my head and I sit here grinning like an imbecile, like right now

No way I've done enough thinking for one day. I'm off to work now anyway so bye.

How is it we do not catch up to clouds then?  Is it:

A)  They too have acceleration equal to Earth's.
B)  We do, they turn to fog, evaporate at a faster acceleration than Earth, and form clouds.
C)  Clouds are part of Earth

Clouds are held up by air.  Aird is accelerated up by the earth.  Therefore, clouds stay up above us.

What contains the air that it is directly accelerated upward?  Air is a gas.  It behaves erratically.  Why doesn't it move away from the acceleration on the x-axis?

Also, if the air is thus being forced upward, how do raindrops hit the earth?  Wouldn't this "rising air" also "push" them away from earth?

?

Obviously the air molecules are planar, to be more exact: flat. Here you go my nigga! Your solution.

Well, that just makes rain even more fucking amazing.

Are raindrops flat too?

Why the air stays on the earth is still unanswered (with a reasonable reply, there have been 50 000ft icewalls and such).  But raindrops fall for the same reason they do on a RE.  It's kind of like saying rain can't fall on the opposite side of the earth (the round one) to it's direction of orbit because it would have to traval over 100 000km/h.  Essentially, they fall because they're too heavy to stay in the air.

But, heavy is directly linked to gravity.  In a FE, we don't have gravity.  Only upwards acceleration equal in force to the gravity I believe in.

Oh god.  Not the technicallities!  Well, put it this way, air is less dense then water.  Problem solved.

The UA is essentially indistinguishable from 'gravity'.

But how could clouds or even updraughts be formed when all the pressure of the atmosphere is constantly building through constant acceleration.

Constant acceleration gives constant pressure. You're confusing acceleration and velocity.
