physics

Physics is everywhere. From the movement of every object to the only F on your high school report card. So shake off that abject failure and find the humor in such a complex and unseen force that affects our lives so significantly.

Tumblr Thread: Elves Are Flat Earthers With Scary Eyes

This fun Tumblr thread has physicists banding together to illustrate the absurd reality of what elves eyes might look like, while factoring in the curvature of Middle Earth, while they're at it. The resulting picture is an unsettling one, for sure. All in all, it's fun to see how ridiculous things can turn out when logic is applied to a fantasy world. 

Get some more Tumblr fun here with this dog that figured out how to herd Lawn Roomba.

Tumblr Thread: Dude Gets Schooled On Car Safety And Physics

This guy got a quick lesson in physics, and that is that physics ain't tossing out any freebies.

Dudes do the Math on If a Fart Could Propel Someone in Zero G

Finally, the answer to the question that's been burning you up inside for years. Given that this is all about getting around space using the force of pushing gases out of valves, this is technically rocket science. For another fun physics lesson, here's Tumblr uncovering the legend of the fastest manhole cover ever. For more fart stuff, here's deaf kids learning about farts.

Guys chat about the math and physics using farts as propulsion in space | If floating zero g with no momentum essentially stuck space space station and, let's say there are handholds nearby 1 meter away and way 90kg hard would have fart propel body nearest handhold weigh Completely dependent on fast want get there As fast as possible suppose need determine capabilities human anus withstand explosive forces. don't know if fart would have propelling force similar on Earth as zero g

Times Gravity Gave People The Middle Finger

Someone on AskReddit asked for people to share the times that gravity ended up being a big jerk to them. You can fight it all you want, but gravity always wins.

A Tolerant Physics Professor Dismantles Flat Earthers In 6 Images

You think if they don't understand it that they'll use that as a reason to not believe it? Flat Earthers have their hands full with this one. This is better than when Flat Earthers experimentally proved themselves wrong! See here.
