was this in school? math? science? physics?

were you hitting yourself because of embarrassment? or were you trying to prove a point? for every action there is an equal opposite reaction?

was your comment on mass correct? incorrect?

is the title headon relevant? does it have to do with the medicine headon? were you trying to use it?

Does "commented on mass" mean "commented on the subject of mass?" (as opposed to "commented while standing on a mass"?)

Was the "mass" you commented on the concept of "mass" in physics? The (physical) mass of a particular object? Some other meaning of the word "mass"? A pun or wordplay?

Was it related to Newton's third law (force = mass * acceleration)? How about the first or second laws?

Did you comment on someone's obesity? Or someone's mass in general? Or was it an object's mass that you commented on? An animal?

Was your comment inappropriate in that situation? You slapped yourself on your forehead-which means you were embarrassed- is there any other relevance to it? Is it relevant where you were when you made this comment?

The object that you commented on, was it on display? Were there a lot of people around you? Was it an exhibit of some sort? Was a person associated with the object? Was your comment made out of ignorance? After you made the comment, did you realize that the comment was inappropriate? Is it relevant how you realized this?

Was your comment considered inappropriate because the object was revered/worshiped? Is religion relevant? Is the object precious? Or rare? Was your comment offensive to anyone?

Is it a man-made object?

I didn't ever say the word mass in the whole thing. And the "Thing" is a body part. I think that's going to lubricate the way for you

One day my parents and sister were joking that my head was small, and contain little. I replied by saying that my head was dense, meaning either it could contain a lot of info, or really stupid. I think by saying that, I proved the second point. Oh well, I slapped myself on the head, and I'm still being teased about it. Darn speaking without understanding what you mean in the first place
And Pumpkin, to comply with your wishes, the spoiler is surrounded by spaces
