  • "A rocket explorer named Wright
    Once traveled much faster than light.
    He sat out one day
    In a relative way,
    And returned on the previous night."

    The Pan Book of Limericks

    You Might Be a Physicist if...

  • the water in your kettle is boiling at 373 Kelvin.

  • you know that the speed of light is 299,792.5 km/sec.

  • you know the direction the water swirls when you flush.

  • you've already calculated how much you earn per second.

  • you are sure that differential equations are a very useful tool.

  • you are at an air show and know how fast the skydivers are falling.

  • you know the second law of thermodynamics, but not your own shirt size.

  • you avoid stirring your coffee because you don't want to increase the entropy of the universe.

  • you try to explain entropy to strangers at your table during casual dinner conversation.

  • your three year old son asks why the sky is blue and you try to explain atmospheric absorption theory.
  • you're at a wine tasting event and find yourself paying more attention to the cork screws than the Chardonnay.
  • you carry on a one-hour debate over the expected results of an experiment that actually takes five minutes to run.
