    Did Sir Isaac Newton really come up with his whole gravity theory thing just by watching an apple fall from a tree, and did the apple really even fall or did some guy just make that part up?:confused2

    No, that's a little historical inaccuracy...
    He was sitting under a coconut tree.
    And when the coconut hit him on the head, sure, he thought up the whole gravity thing.
    A week later, he thought he was a fire engine...
    Then the south sea trading bubble.

    It was all pretty much down hill for him after that
