Floating Ball

A wizard cast a spell on a ball to make it stay still in the middle of the air next to a tree, he said to the guy with him “This ball will not move from it’s place not by any force in the universe”, the other guy went home and the next day when he returned to that tree the ball was not there, how could that be?

(no the wizard was not wrong or lying)

    The ball stayed in it’s place as the world turned on its axis.

  • Roolstar

    If the spell worked, instantly, the ball would appear to be moving away from its position at a very high speed as soon as the spell was cast. (We won’t even have to wait until the next day to see the change). In one second it will appear to move humdreds (or even thousands) of miles away from its initial position next to the tree.

    The earth is moving around its axis (at 1,040 miles per hour), and around the sun (at 67,000 miles per hour), and with the solar sytem around the milky way galaxy (at 558,000 miles per hour), and with the milky way throughout the fabric of space within its local group of galaxies (at 666,000 miles per hour). Add to that the possibility of our entire universe moving relatively to other parallel universes, dimensions or membranes, depending on the theories.

    Depending on its initial position, the ball may pass through hills and mountains or even through the earth crust and core. This is a very dangerous spell, DO NOT TRY THIS AT HOME.

  • Eddie, you nailed it.

    The ball stayed exactly where it was in space, the Earth moved away on it’s journey round the sun.

    You are today’s winner.
