In the merry month of May
When green leaves begin to spring,
Little lambs do skip like fairies,
Birds do couple, build, and sing.
A swarm of bees in May
Is worth a load of hay;
A swarm of bees in June
Is worth a silver spoon;
A swarm of bees in July
Is not worth a fly.

Alexander Pope

Alexander Pope: Epitaph intended for Sir Isaac Newton, in Westminster Abbey (1730).

Nature and nature's laws lay hid in night;
God said "Let Newton be" and all was light.

    None need a guide, by sure Attraction led,
    And strong impulsive gravity of Head:
    None want a place, for all their Centre found,
    Hung to the Goddess, and coher’d around. ...
    The gath’ring number, as it moves along,
    Involves a vast involuntary throng,
    Who gently drawn, and struggling less and less,
    Roll in her Vortex, and her pow’r confess.

    But this problem is still pending, it causes me restlessness
    How can I apply Newton's law just locally ( small region of strong gravity ) in the case of
    - Strong gravity of black holes?
    - Strong gravity under my bed?
    And I wanna know the link between them? =))

    I'm being thick. Why under the bed? The gravity on top of my bed seems enough for me!

    I discovered a black hole under my bed @mheredge, But I will not tell you the secret how I get escaped of it, it is my own promising theory that could lead to the Nobel Prize B-)

    So that's where you hide all your secrets @science24‌. Did you find any odd socks that you've been looking for? :)>-

    Odd socks connected to the Internet (Bruce Sterling) =))

    How many spiders scuttled out of the black hole since you've started hiding your secrets there? Is it as black as the Black Hole of Calcutta?
