The farther you stick your hand out, the more you will notice this effect.

    I thought aloud about this over in this thread of mine a while back.
    Wow! Your thread actually made alot of sense to me. Thank you so much for breaking it down into physics.

    Not a problem -- just make sure to check it with an actual physicist before you rely too much on it...
