It doesn ‘t take a lot of pressed plywood to make a television stand. That’s not a fascinating opening statement, is it? The only thing of note for today’s purge is that the picture was taken during a sudden surge of what The Purging Lutheran calls ‘awkward gravity’. Gravity, as you know, is what keeps your shoes and outdoor pets from floating away. Albert Einstein blamed gravity as “a consequence of the curvature of spacetime caused by the uneven distribution of mass/energy.” [ thanks wiki! ] The important part here is the phrase ‘uneven distribution of mass/energy‘. Yeah, the Earth is usually the big player when it comes to gravity but occassionally it becomes ‘uneven’ and is overridden by other massive objects in the neighborhood, in this case a Best Buy delivery truck passing by just as I snapped this picture. Go figure.

hangs the earth out in empty space.
