You don't need a physics degree to know about Newton's Law of Universal Gravitation: "Any two bodies in the universe attract each other with a force that is directly proportional to the product of their masses and inversely proportional to the square of the distance between them." And even if all that sounds like gibberish we all understand the general principle of how gravity works - especially when we see something that seems to go against this law.

Below is a list of photos that show people, objects and animals that thought gravity be damned and followed their own set of physics rules. Sure there is a scientific explanation for even the wackiest occurrences, but that doesn't make them any less entertaining! Don't forget to upvote your favs!
