Aliens on Super-Earth Planets May Be Trapped by Gravity

Aliens on Super-Earth Planets May Be Trapped by Gravity:  Researchers say that while so-called super-earths may be the most likely class of exoplanets to support life, the gravity on them would be so powerful, it would make it very unlikely any beings on them would even be able to leave their planet.  

Either that, or they’re a civilization of Trump supporters - and they believe their super-earth is flat and the sky above then is totally fake.  From that point of view, what would be the point of trying to leave?  Or perhaps these beings reside on an exoplanet planet made almost entirely of Velveeta cheese - and their alien civilization has become so addicted to grilled cheese sandwiches, they can’t bare to leave.  As you can see, there’s so many possible answers here. 

That said, one thing most scientists do agree upon is that the gravity on these super exoplanets planets would be so profound, it would be nearly impossible for any aliens living there to unzip their flies just to take a leak - and they most likely would be forced to pee right in their pants.  Obviously, life on a massive super-earth isn’t quite as glamorous as some make it out to be.  As for me - all I know is that gravity is the force allowing me to remain on my couch for long periods of time watching cable TV - and for that, I’m eternally grateful.

ridiculous, wherever life evolved that planets gravity would be 'normal' to them...where do you find these "researchers"....Mad Magazine?

Hey, don’t knock Mad.

Though, to tell the truth, I haven’t read them in decades. I knew them in the late sixties and early seventies.
