But if there was no gravity, the balls would have maintained the trajectory and (neglecting air resistance) velocity that they had when they left cueball's hands! -- mwburden 23:17, 7 December 2012 (UTC)

Very true! Please do consider reworking/replacing this explanation so it isn't so misleading! lcarsos_a (talk) 23:22, 7 December 2012 (UTC)

Added "or momentum" to the explanation. -- mwburden 13:03, 10 December 2012 (UTC)

It doesn't look like Cueball's jumping to me--just reaching for the balls. 08:45, 23 December 2012 (UTC)

Nah I agree with the transcript. Both feet are noticeably higher than in the previous "standing" panels. And I can't picture anyone raising one leg weirdly like that if the other leg is planted on the ground - if he were looking to reach without jumping, he'd would be on tiptoes instead. - jerodast (talk) 13:18, 23 December 2012 (UTC)
