Monday Rude Humor: Einstein on Simultanaeity Edition

A much quoted quip by Einstein goes something like this:

Spend a minute with your hand on a hot stove, and it feels like an hour.  Spend an hour with a pretty girl, and it feels like a minute.  That’s relativity!

Hidden within relativity, if not the joke, is the insight derived from Einstein’s analysis of the relativity of simultanaeity.  Think the famous lighting/train thought experiment.

Now comes xkcd’s reanalysis of the concept, to which, this being a family blog, I will link, and not embed.

Enjoy the week…..
