I don't know why you guys are doing this to each other, you both know orders of magnitude more than anyone else at this forum, and I'm sure no one has slightest idea what you guys are talking about most of the time.

In any case I can't figure out how gravity could be velocity dependent. Velocity with respect to what frame? Does this mean that if I am standing on a massive body that I will weigh more when the body has a velocity with respect to the Lab frame, and that the scale will have different readings for different observers depending on their respective relative velocities?
