When you clean a vacuum cleaner, you become a vacuum cleaner.
People think that outer space is incredibly cold. Which is technically true. But something interesting I learned this year is that even though it is incredibly cold, it takes forever for things to cool down in space. There are so few particles in deep space that things in space don’t freeze immediately, they get cold over long periods of time. The movies don’t tell the same story as reality.
How long can you hold your breath? 3-5 minutes? The current world record is 24 minutes. Can you imagine watching an entire episode of “Friends” without breathing once?
Bacon is basically a meat raisin.
While roasting S’mores over a fire this week, I got into a deep debate with my children about why they were named “S’mores.” I forget the end result, but I think it’s an important debate to resolve at some point.
Human beings don’t see the total spectrum of light, but we act like we do.
I hear there are people who can visually see music, but that is difficult for me to comprehend, because I hear music with my ears. Also - some people claim to be able to see more colors because of a genetic mutation of their eyes, which is cool, because they are mutants… but again, difficult to imagine because I don’t know what the colors would look like. I’m jealous of that.
What if we suddenly could see all light wavelengths and we are just surrounded by ghosts?
One of my friends once said to me:
“What if the color ‘red’ you see is different than the color ‘red’ I see…” I didn’t sleep for weeks.
If the moon and earth were created from one planet hitting another planet, do you think that “Earth” created humans in order to prevent from such a situation happening again? Or is it more likely that earth is a space ship transporting water across the galaxy.
I think we are going to find dinosaur bones on the moon.
