Estimates of how much space dust lands on Earth every day range from 100 to 1,000 tons.
So, I'm not getting fatter? The accumulation is just causing the gravitational pull of the earth to increase?

(You're unique! Just like everyone else!)
I've always blamed gravity waves for any apparent weight gain -- but come to think of it, accumulated space dust would explain the slow & steady gains better.
