I prefer to think of it as being the inevitable result of a complex
equation involving my size, the height of my horse, the magnitude
of a spook that is strong enough to actually get rid of me, the
spin it imparts to my body, coupled against the acceleration due to
earth's gravity.  On Mars, I think I'd land on my shoulders :-)

Hope your shoulder feels better soon.  Were you at the PAC?
I was hoping to see you there, but there were so many people...
