Every once in a while, I like to check on the laws of physics and make sure they still apply. There's "new math;" who knows, maybe there's new physics.
1. If I drop this big, heavy box into this trash bin with some sawdust at the bottom, will the sawdust fly up and into my eyes and mouth? Yep!
2. If I stare at this green light but am lost in thought and don't move, will my car move forward anyway, since it's got 150,000 miles on it and it's seen plenty of green lights before? Nope. Will my fellow motorists appreciate this experiment? Nope.
3. If I put on my pull-over hoodie backwards, will the hood swivel around to its proper place, or will I pull the hoodie down only to find that the room's suddenly turned solid blue? The latter.
4. If I back down a hill without looking where I'm going and step in a hole, will I fall? What do you think?
