Each month we choose a favorite quote--something fun or something to make you think. See the archive for quotes from previous months.

G forces affect your stomach, ears, and joints. As g forces increase, your stomach is squashed flat. The effect is like squeezing a plastic ketchup bottle. The ketchup squirts out the spout. Your stomach, like a bottle, may send the ketchup on a return visit, along with the cheeseburger and fries.

           --Nick Cook, Roller Coasters: Or, I Had So Much Fun, I Almost Puked   (Carolrhoda, 1998)
