Born in '59; I think I was about 4YO... we had one of those old refrigerators. To see if the light really goes off when the door is closed- my older brother had me get inside the refrigerator and then he closed the door. He opened it, let me out, I reported, then he got inside...
...I couldn't reach the handle.
Good thing mom was home.
But we did prove the light really does shut off when the door is closed.
The next experiment; Is the stove burner really hot when it glows red? (Mom says it is...) was never performed. Mom was right about the refrigerator light.
"Trust, but verify."
I guess that's the space nerd version of covering the bed in a pile of money...
No. It doesn't. Just because it looks like something you don't about, understand, or can't do doesn't mean it's fake.
Soo, you are an expert in balancing this an every position a body can hold? You tried it out? Or is it just "cOmMOn sense and I don't need to say anything except centre of gravity because that proves it all and you're an idiot if you don't agree with me"?
If those had all been electric vehicles, they'd be there yet.

Pando is located in eastern Utah near Fish lake. It is the largest single living organism. It is roughly 14-16,000 years old, not 80,0000. This part of Utah was still experiencing glaciers 80,000 years ago.
With no food source, other than themselves, they would eventually die off. It takes more calories to grow an organism than what is in the organism. They'd eventually just eat each other to extinction.
