Yesterday I spend a tremendous amount of time in a very snazzy lab shooting lasers through pyridine. Cool stuff, tempered by the fact that pyridine smells like what Dr. Frankenstein’s lab would have smelled like if Dr. Frankenstein used organic chemistry instead of electricity, and also the thing he was trying to bring back to life was a dead fish. Science waits for no man – not at least if you have a sensitive nose. Anyway, it resulted in my super-cool post about gravity not being done yet. Blarg! With any luck I’ll have it up Monday.
So as something cool for the Built on Facts show today, I’d like to show you all something by one of the best comics writers on the web. From Scott Meyer’s Basic Instructions:
Ok, so you won’t find this in Landau. But I have a suspicion that it might be true anyway…
I’d like to hear your physics of relationships theories in the comments!
