Day 28: King of the classroom
Thursday, January 28, 2010 5:00 PM

It is a truth universally acknowledged, that a single chair perched atop a table must be in want of a person to sit on it. Greg took advantage of this opportunity the minute we walked into physics.

Class was actually pretty bearable today. We learned about relativity; measuring time in things like t, t', ticks, and tocks; and the basis of things for stuff like time travel! (See earlier post.) Like, if we were to send a pregnant woman into space at three-fifths the speed of light, she would think that she was only pregnant for nine months, but for the people observing her on Earth, she would be pregnant for 11.25 months. And crazy ish like that. It made the subject about 2% better.
