Someone once told me that the apple doesn't fall far from the tree. I pointed out that that isn't necessarily true. If a heavy wind is blowing, or if the apple tree hangs over a cliff, the apple can fall quite far from the tree. He stammered at me for several seconds, then stalked away. I guess he must have failed high school physics...
