Science ala Kids

I have a degree in the physical sciences. I wish I had known this stuff when I was in graduate school. It would have made passing tests oh so much easier…

– One horsepower is the amount of energy it takes to drag a horse 500 feet in one second.
– You can listen to thunder after lightning and tell how close you came to getting hit. If you don’t hear it, you got hit, so never mind.
– When they broke open molecules, they found they were only stuffed with atoms. But when they broke open atoms, they found them stuffed with explosions.
– While the earth seems to be knowingly keeping its distance from the sun, it is really only centrificating.

– Most books now say our sun is a star. But it still knows how to change into a sun in the daytime.
– A vibration is a motion that cannot make up its mind which way it wants to go.
– Many dead animals of the past changed to fossils, others preferred to become oil.
– Vacuums are nothings. We only mention them to let them know we know they are there.

– Some people can tell what time it is by looking at the sun. But I have never been able to make out the numbers.
– I am not sure how clouds get formed. But the clouds know how to do it, and that is the important thing.
– In making rain water, it takes everything from H to O.
– Rain is saved up in cloud banks.

– Cyanide is so poisonous that one drop of it on a dog’s tongue will kill the strongest man.
– Thunder is a rich source of loudness.
– Isotherms and isobars are even more important than their names sound.
– It is so hot in some parts of the world that the people there have to live in other places.
