Science Puzzles

Just for Fun, some science questions. I don’t have the answers, but the questions are amusing to think about.

  1. Why is Lightning jagged and zig-zaggy? Why doesn’t it travel in straight lines?
  2. A storm happens. Lightning strikes a Lake. Let’s say the lake is 1 mile, across. One foot below the surface of the water, is a Trout fish. It dies from the Lightning Zap. Question: But how deep in the lake would it need to be, to be unfazed?
  3. . A rainbow is colored, curved and does not appear to be moving. Yet, the Northern Lights are also colored, they wave and swirl and don’t stay still. Why the difference?
  4. What is “Avagadro’s Number”?
  5.  What is “Plank’s Constant”?
  6. The upper windshields on many cars are blue glass, but why blue? Why not red or orange? Some sunglasses have an Orange-ish/brown tint. Why not car windshields?
  7. Astronomy. The Big Bang. It’s a theory. Did you know that the Big Bang Theory didn’t come along until 1927? What did most everyone believe in 1925?

OK, that’s enough nerdiness for one day. (smile). I post about several different topics at:  thewordpressowl.wordpress.com   –Relationships, Music, Books, TV & more.  🙂

The Immortal. (an old TV show)

What if you never got sick? What if you were immune to all diseases, including old age?

What if the wrong people knew about it?  Like someone very, very rich—and dying.

Ben Richards (played by actor Christopher George) has that immunity. And he’s on the run because of it. “The Immortal” was an old TV show, back around 1970-’71, I think. This YouTube trailer gives you the whole idea.    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=My_85FhMat8

People are Funny. Cell Phones.

People are funny. With their Cell Phones. Here’s what gets me. I go onto Amazon.com and I read some customer reviews about various different Cell Phones. Over and over and over, I read people commenting, often, on the phones Camera. They wish it was higher mega-pixels. They wish it had a camera in front and in back, not just one. Camera, camera, camera. As if nothing else matters. Maybe, once in awhile, someone might comment on Battery-life.

But—What are we talking about?

A Phone. Why were phones invented? To talk to people.

And so I find it quite odd that hardly anyone even mentions:

How does it SOUND?? Do you get a good signal? Is the person you’re talking to coming in loud-n-clear? Do they sound far away? Is the sound too muffled? Or fuzzy/scratchy/distorted? Can the other person hear you OK? And yet no one seems to care. Very few people comment on that.  Amazing! What about listening to videos on Youtube or tunes on Spotify? I don’t need a 117 megapixel camera with a 35x zoom. For me, its much more about the Audio.

Comedy: Flip Wilson

Flip Wilson was a huge and well-loved comedy success back in the ’70s. This is from his old TV show where he plays Rev. Leroy, and The Church of What’s Happening Now. Thanks, to Youtube.

Music. “Big Dreams in a Small Town” by Restless Heart

I like this song:  “Big Dreams in a Small Town” by Restless Heart.  From their Vevo video on YouTube.   Enjoy!   🙂

Living an Adult Life Should Still Have Joy

In my opinion, the sad part of being an Adult is that too often people behave as if they believe that Adulthood means they have to go through Life much more serious about everything.

Responsibility is a good thing and part of being a good adult. But they don’t have to become a Workaholic, or join committees, or put in too much overtime, and then pride themself on how “motivated” they are but–have no life outside of their career!
Nearly “All drudgery, all the time!”
All in the name of being responsible.
But not much Joy.
It’s interesting. You ask them “what’s goin’ on?” and it’s nearly always about how they are so “busy” running lots of errands and going to the bank, paying their phone bill, their heat bill, seeing the dentist, mowing their lawn, giving their car a tune up, etc.

OK, so they have it together. That’s good. We should get those things done.
The bad and sad part is: That’s it!
With far too few exceptions. Where is the Fun?
—and it is much, much too rare that you see, or hear, them talk about any funny movie they saw, or any beach-trip they took, or a new restaurant they ate in, or a new book they read, or that they went bowling or played pool, Rode a bike, hiked a trail, had a picnic or spent 2 hrs. in the Mall for fun?
Nope. 100 excuses.
They are just “too busy”. Or,
It costs too much (it doesn’t), it’s too far to go (it really isn’t) , or they’re just “not into that” (but they used to like it). And I don’t just mean partying.
Even seeing a movie in a theatre doesn’t happen anywhere near like it used to. Maybe later this summer. If they “have time”. Busyness and “getting my stuff done” has become almost like a new drug, (or at least a boring rut).

They don’t see it that way at all.
After all, there’s work to be done. (Only? They will say no but what else do they do?)
That’s their right and they are not here to live up to what I think is best. After all, it’s their life.

But I notice:
A) Their Life is losing it’s former variety, and becoming quite a bit more repetitive.
B) While becoming more Adult, their increased “maturity” has caused them to have less of a sense of humor. They get embaressed more easily. (God only knows why). I’m not talking about anything wild or outrageous or glaring, but just too on guard in public about what anyone might see or hear and too worried about it. But most people don’t care. They probably won’t even notice. But the alertness and concern persists.
C) For some reason, Etiquette sometimes becomes a game of: they were more polite or considerate than you were. Example: you went out to eat and you left a tip. But they had to leave a bigger one.

One more thing: I have sometimes joked that if I live to be 85, I’ll be wild and shake my Tush like Elvis. Most people laugh when they hear that. And admire that spirit of being playful even in old age.
But then, isn’t it sad when as Adults, we don’t “let our hair down” at 50 yrs. old even if it’s 2 notches down from that? All in the name of “maturity”, but where’s the Joy?
