I'm such an amazing dork

So I'm listening to Satellite Rides, the Old 97's CD. I really love the song 'Weightless' except everytime I hear it, it makes me want to hit something because of this concept:

"An awful lot like outer space
Where everything is weightless, yeah
Even heavy things are weightless, yeah
Don't take up any space at all."

It bothers me way more than it should that Rhett Miller doesn't bother to differentiate between things which are heavy (using weight as a measure) and things which are massive (using space as a measure) take up a lot of space (using volume as a measure). They really aren't the same thing at all and maybe I should stop reading things like The Elegant Universe as pleasure reading.

*edited to fix stupid elementary physics mistake.
