    I try not to think about it too much, cuz my mind usually wanders towards ****. But if you think about it, we are all moving even when we are perfectly still, because the Planet we live on is moving. It's the gravity thing that gets me. Why don't we just fly off into space?

    Yeah but something that isn't alive can't move itself and yeah I understand gravity but it should move right away if that's the case, not when it feels like it.

    Was the hose in the sun and then you put it in the shade in the shed? Things expand from heat and shrink from cold...and I can't wait to see all the Gifs about that statement tomorrow :mrgreen:

    +1 :D

    PS ~ No doubt there is an explanation, but that's too deep a subject for my shallow mind atm.
    This is our last dance. This is ourselves under pressure.

    No it wasn't it, I know it would expaned if in put in sun I learnt the hard way a few years ago when I left a rusty mower tin in the sun, all of a sudden fuel just started spraying out of a rusted section in the tin so I know not to place it in the sun. Common sense also states that lol. Just weird how something's after they have been touched or move, move again a few minutes later, did some fat person on the other side of the planet sit down to fast and change the gravitational pull for a slight moment?

    Could it be vibration. Or maybe if it's a plastic hose heat could effect it.

    Any number of possible explanations. For example, was your gas can sealed? If so, the vapour pressure inside the sealed can will cause it to expand slightly, which can cause things to shift ever so slightly, but just enough to change the friction between the can and the hose, letting the hose slide down. Was the hose wet at all? As it dries off, it can change the friction with the same result. Even small vibrations in the ground could be enough to shake things loose sometimes.

    Of course, there's also

    I believe he already explained it. He had just set his gas can down, along with the hose he was using, started to think about moving and got all unbalanced! :lol:

    Nah, it was gravity waves!

    Lmao, Iam not just talking about the one incident. Iam talking about how it can happen when ever like the other I took my sons tennis ball of him for playing it in the house. I put it on a shelf about ten seconds later it rolls of onto the floor, why didn't it do that when I first placed it there? Ball wasn't moving, so what causes a "delayed reaction".
