More to the contrary here, if one posts in an area that's open to all levels, one should at least post in Chinese and English (with pinyin being an added bonus). Think of all learners, folks, not just yourself.

Yes, Changye, and Santa (圣诞老人Shènɡdàn Lǎorén) wouldn't be sliding down all those chimneys, either, without Newton's little law.

Also note, December 25th is celebrated as the birthday of Isaac Newton, someone many of us non-believers worship.

A bigger problem than finding specks of flesh amidst the veggies is the rampant use of meat broth, even in supposed vegetarian dishes (spinach & garlic, for instance). Ask if the dish is made with meat broth (用肉汤来做吗?yòng ròutāng lái zuò ma?).
