I'm sure everyone here has experienced a dreaded loading bar. You're waiting for an app to open or a movie to download and it just won't happen. Perhaps one of life's best kept secrets is that there is actually a way of shortening waiting periods and it works using something that is all around you, all the time: Gravity.
When a bar is loading, such as the one seen here:
all you need to do is simply rotate your device so that gravity is pulling the bar down and there you have it... faster loading times.
Now, in order to understand how this works, we must first understand gravity. Gravity is defined as:
a fundamental physical force that is responsible for interactions which occur because of mass between particles .
Basically gravity is force of attraction. It is what keeps everything on the surface of the earth, heck, it's what allowed particles of dust to clump together to form planets in the first place. But how does it relate to the loading bar of your mobile phone or laptop you ask? Well it's simple. display screens are made up of heaps of tiny pixels. These pixels are controlled by the device to light up, and, when they all light up together, they form the images that we see on our screens everyday. Now we need to understand two important things. The first is that these pixels show us Light and the second is that the data that is transferred to your device comes in a form of energy.
The first is simply so I can stop my opponent from saying "but gravity doesn't affect pixels!" Gravity affects light, as seen in black holes, where light can not escape the intese gravity and demonstrated by the way mass warps space time time thorugh gravity and hense affects light. So if pixels display light, pixels are affected by gravity.
Now the second, and more import thing. According to possibly the most famous equation of all time, Einstein's E=MC^2 (where E=energy, M=mass and C=the speed of light) energy and mass can be rearranged to form each other. Mass can be transferred into energy and energy into mass hence they are both made of the same thing. It is this law that powers nuclear power plants. 
What's that you asked? 'Great but what does that have to do with my phone?' Well it's simple: Let me put it in the form of a syllogism. P1: Gravity affects mass P2: Mass and Energy are the same thing C: Gravity affects energy.
So, we've established that the data (energy) that is sent to your phone (e.g. when you are downloading something from the Internet) or the data that comes from inside your phone (e.g. opening an app) is affected by gravity? Now, which way does gravity pull things? Salman Khan illustrates it beautifully for us in the video above. Basically, we can see that a large mass will pull a smaller mass towards it's center. Which, where we are on or above the surface of the earth is down. So, to prove what we already knew, gravity pulls things down
That last syllogism was fun, lets do another:
P1. Gravity pulls mass down P2. Data is made up of energy, which is the same thing as mass. C. Gravity pulls data down.
Now we can establish that the loading bar on a screen is representing the progress of the data being downloaded, the data being downloaded is a form of energy, energy and mass are the same thing and mass is effected by gravity. So a loading bar is affected by gravity.
So there you have it folks. Scientific proof that a loading bar will be pulled down by gravity, hence making it load faster.
**WARNING** Tilting the bar the wrong way may result in all your data running out of the loading bar and prolonged waiting times
Reasons for voting decision: Although not at all convincing, Pro's case was extremely entertaining. I give Pro the points because in spite of being fallacious science, a bad argument is more convincing than, well, no argument.
