*Gasp* RE does know how gravity works!

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gravity

Wowee!

And the logic that everything is just going up? ORLY? Then why did I weigh 162 at my aunt's house in California, which is on a hill. I weighed 167 the week before I left. I didn't lose 5 lbs by sitting around doing nothing. Then when I visited my uncle in Phoenix, I was 169. Amazing. I gained 2 lbs by doing nothing. Now, I constantly observe my weight because I am in college wrestling, so that is how I know my weight. And according to the RE theory of gravity, the closer you are to the earth's center, the more you weigh, because the stronger the gravity is. So, that is explained in the RE theory whereas the FE theory states we shouldn't weigh less because it's all the same gravity!

Like Wikipedia is a credible source. I could go on there and say that gravity is a fucking giraffe that eats cherries on the sun.
ah.

We know how it causes things to interact, how does it do this?

Your fluctuating weight is more due to your 'juicing' habits (being a wrestler and all) than your distance from the center of the earth.

Wikipedia is fine since it usually lists outside sources.

Now if it doesn't cite a source for the information, you have to be skeptical.

And my weight changes may or may not be from my habits, but I am not the only person to notice this phenomena, in fact it goes hand in hand with the RE theory.

That explains the effects, not the cause.  You lose.

ZOMG something similar happened to me!  I went out to eat at Hickory House, and they have a free scale there to see how much you weigh; I weighed 183 lbs before I ate and I weighed 188 lbs when I had finished eating!

The difference in gravity between California and Phoenix is negligable, and wouldn't be detected by a bathroom scale.

Do the maths yourself, it's not hard.
