In Case You've Wondered

My blog is where my wandering thoughts are interspersed with stuff I made up. So, if while reading you find yourself confused about the context, don't feel alone. I get confused, too.

If you're here for the stories, I started another blog:

One other thing: sometimes I write words you refuse to use in front of children, or polite company, unless you have a flat tire, or hit your thumb with a hammer.

I don't use them to offend; I use them to embellish.

With Knowledge Comes Knowledge

I was watching "Iron Man" and thinking of how physics are abandoned for the plot and special effects.

One thing that came to mind was the instant deceleration from a few hundred miles an hour. It looks great on film, and a suit could probably be made to handle the stress...but....there would only be jelly inside.

Some might say: "Well, you could control the inertia, with the manipulation of gravity, and the person inside the suit wouldn't be hurt."

That could be, but if you could do that, why not just manipulate gravity, crush your enemies to the size of an atom and watch them fuse in a tiny nuclear explosion?

Still, it's fun to watch. I like to see bad guys lose.

  1. There is something to be said for escapism where the good guys win occasionally. There is also something to be said for a suit full of jelly... or maybe I'm just hungry.
