Tuesday Titters: If Einstein wrote poetry

by Janie Jones

I’ve read in the bowels of Google that Einstein’s favorite limerick was:

There was an old lady called Wright
who could travel much faster than light.
She departed one day
in a relative way
and returned on the previous night.

Update from the academic front

by Janie Jones

Yesterday I preempted Thursday Quote Du Jour with my Curran quote, so today have no material.  This cold is also dampening my blogging enthusiasm.  Sorry.

However, I do have some good news.  Physics test scores did come in yesterday.  The class average was 66%.  Apparently, physics teacher didn’t find that unusually low.  However, I was surprised.  That meas half of the class did worse than me.  I got a 78%.  Imagine that!

Unfortunately, this next section looks pretty miserable.  The calculations for magnetic fields and forces drag all my least favorite topics from last semester back into play.  Torque, centripetal force, vector components.  *Shudder*

Well, only 9 and a half more weeks until the semester is over.

Here’s a bonus joke.  I just found a funny website full of physics jokes I’d never seen before.

Q: What did the male magnet say to the female magnet?

A: From your backside, I thought you were repulsive. However, after seeing you from the front, I find you rather attractive.

Tuesday Titters: This physics final will likely defy rhyme and reason

by Janie Jones

Today is the day.  My physics final begins at 7:30 am.  I am both petrified and relieved.  If I pass, I move on to physics 2 in the spring.  If I fail, I’ll have to revisit physics 1.

Here’s hoping my sad math brain doesn’t fail me.  Hopefully my humor won’t either…

rhyme or reasonlimit equations my favorite frequency V equals D divided by TI think if I understand enough to find these jokes funny, that should be all the physics I need.  I think I deserve an A, don’t you?

But, I’m definitely more a glass is half empty kinda person.

optimist pessimist physicist

And I’m pretty sure my final will resemble this:

bad physics answers
I am not going to cite all these cartoons.  It’s obvious I didn’t make them, I’m not taking credit for making them, in fact, I blantantly stole them from Google images.  Some other more brilliant person deserves credit for sure, but if you want to know who you can research the more appropriate citations by clicking here.

So you *do* understand

by Janie Jones

Leif sent this to me last night.  Once I finished laughing my ass off, I decided I must share.

mathsrhard

This exactly how I feel about physics, which by the way, is never easy, but is close to being the most sadistic, obtuse, and frustrating application of mathematics my sad little Jane Brain has ever encountered.

Thanks Leif.  You made my day.
