I contest - there was no gravity at all.
I dunno, is it relevant?
Does it matter?

Ok, re-thinking this.
Yes there was 'gravity' in the eye of the beholder.
But we all know how many trains that waved off, though people argue to this day.

A word may have different meanings depending upon context.

Gravity here means serriousness.

Oh I know that, the request for definitions was a nod to our resident word buff.
I think the point I'm trying to make can be best summed up as "...really?"
It's a commentary on rising authoritarianism, you really should nip it in the bud.
Maybe too big a topic to bring up in a little place like this though.
Got any more climate change jokes?
