Resolved Question: "Do boomerangs really come back when you throw them?" Best Answer Chosen by Asker: "They don't actually come back when you throw them. In fact, it's yourself that catches up with the boomerang. It's difficult to picture, but you know how the world is spinning but ALSO moving around the sun? Well, the unique shape of a boomerang allows it to literally 'hover' in the air whilst we move away from it and then eventually back towards it..." I didn't know that.
