Circular gravity discovered

This sign is helpfully placed at the top of a cliff. You will have to take my word for it that there is absolutely nowhere a rock could fall on you from if you can read this sign. Therefore the rocks have to drop off the eroding cliff at your feet, circle up around and fall on your head. Unfortunately climatic conditions were such that the phenomenon was not happening on the day we were there.

The sign is warning you that the rocks can fall from under you, the cliff is eroding from below.
