Defying gravity

| November 18, 2011 | 4 Comments

The queen stayed in the car and continued her knitting. I had to go it alone. The cost for a full-on feeling of confusion in the gravity house is five dollars. Is it worth five dollars? In this world of big box stores and online shopping, places like Confusion Hill need to exist. Yes, it is totally worth five dollars. The signs alone are worth the five dollar charge. See that circular blue sign with the arrow above it. That’s a tsunami evacuation sign. They’re all over the coastal highway. In this case they’re instructing people to climb the tree. Good advice if you ask me.

The gravity house has nothing to do with defying gravity and everything to do with optical illusion. The ‘house’ is built on the side of a hill. If Hercules came along and lifted your abode at a 45 degree angle, you’d be standing on your walls too. And how amazing would that be? Way amazing.

These guys appear to be defying some sort of physical property. But who am I to argue technicalities? It’s a roadside attraction. Applying logic just harshes the mellow, dude. Accept the goofiness. Enjoy the absurdity. Then go buy a magnet.

The golf balls moving uphill didn’t surprise. I’ve been through that movie before. That’s okay, the gravity house was a groovy, trippy roadside attraction – with a bunch of signs.

    freaky man.
    i clicked through to the gravity hill thing.
    ok so when you put the level on the road what did it prove.
    did it agree with the perception of a hill, or did it show the hill looked backwards.

    When we put the level on the road it confirmed the hill is on a downward slope even though it very much looks like it’s going up hill. Not sure how an optical illusion like that works, but it was way fun.
