We get into some strange conversations at work. Today was science class:
How come, if you jump when you’re on a train, you land in the same spot? Why do you keep pace with the train when you’re in the air? The answer probably involves the words ‘velocity’, ‘inertia’ and ‘Newtonian Physics’, if that helps.
A spaceship is travelling at the speed of light. Nothing can exceed the speed of light. What if there’s a lightbulb inside the spaceship? Would it work? This one probably involves ‘infinite mass’, ‘simutaneously occupying every point in the universe’ and ‘quantum’.
I realise I could look up the answers on the Internet. Heck, I realise I should have listened more in science class. See, all those equations and numbers and random Greek letters shut down my brain. I find the big issues of science fascinating, but the squiggles? Less so. Kind of like how I love reading but grammar happens to other people…
I suspect posts like this explain why I won’t be getting any cards tomorrow.
