You are correct(ish) mass also reflects on the effect of gravity on an object, so in a sense half mass could refer to the fact that it isn't all the way up or down considering mass measures the gravitational pull on anything targeted....

"Half mast is the term describing flying a flag below the summit of the flagpole (mast). This is done in many countries as a symbol of respect, mourning, or distress."

So you keep on that high horse of yours, run that stallion till the lungs explode, and us common folk will keep on being right and proper because we don't pretend to be better then what we are, by the way you spelled yours' wrong!

Also because I am pretty sure you are an imbecile... base and summit are opposites! base is the bottom, or the beginning of said structure. Summit is the highest point reachable...

So you keep on insulting and belittling the people that support the military because they don't know the jargon, and there will always be somebody like me to stick it back in your face that you don't know the jargon either, I assume you don't know what jargon is either, but I don't care to explain, the last thing I want to explain is without support from the base the summit falls, without a summit the base will still be a base. That means without the high horse riders, the horse will still be a horse, catching the drift yet? probably not huh.... but yuza solger aint'cha 'n so dum smert yuz is that yuz cun peck on uz simple fulkzes wull yuz huveuh gud day willzya
You are defiantly not high speed, and are probably the kinda guy that goes into basic training, quits for some made up mental condition then tells all his/her buddies they killed 10,000 people with their bare hands and 50,000 more with their sniper rifle, flew a jet and blew up 100 tanks etc. etc. Some kinda hero you are...
The point is, yeah he flew his flag at half mast and he did the proper thing, he isn't military and wouldn't fly his flag at half-staff because he didn't loose any staff you URGH I got so many words for you red neck

I have to ask, do you say hoo-rah or hoo-aah neither right?

I bet anybody military is laughing at you and crying at the same time, laughing at your ignorance, and crying at your pure disrespect over their lost brother/sister. Disrespect a civilian thats respecting the fallen, I hope you get trench foot.
