    Why don't we fly in effect of moon's gravity ?

    I know it might sound foolish, but still I got some base. Due to combined effect of gravity of moon and sun, tonnes of water is lifted at ones at the time of high tides.
    So, why we human beings or animals or any other solid object doesn't flies high in itself in effect of gravity of sun and moon ?

    Gravity holds us on the planet. The force of gravity on us (and other objects) on earth is greater than that of the moon.

    Tidal action is not a function of the "lifting" of the water, rather there is a "bulging" of water. Here is some useful information:
