I was just trying to make a point. The issue is not really significant, once one understands what is meant everything is fine. All I was really saying is that the idea that weight is force and not mass is an argument you have to go through with every new generation (from my experiance). I just don't think we would have had the same problem if Newtwon had said weight was mass. Who knows, we might have had some other problem.

>>>"Again!" is what I hear young ones say when I ask them that question after catching them.
