Wheels on Fire

News from the Southern Indiana outpost of KJ world impresses on us these laws of physics:

1. A body at rest remains at rest, except when it doesn't. Even when the body is a Jeep rolling down a hill, without anyone in it.
2. A body in motion remains in motion, except if it backs into the side of a barn. Expect to see tire prints. On the wall.
3. Don't underestimate the power of chain reactions. Looks like it's time to fix the wall. Also, too bad about that tree. And what shall we do with that dilapidated greenhouse? I'm thinking renovation and spa.
3. Things fall apart; the centre cannot hold. But at least no one was hurt.

Dr. Surly will be presenting his findings at an upcoming symposium: "Spacetime and Gravity, or, Jeeps and Me." See pictures here.

I love symposia!

And a spa sounds like a reasonably responsible approach to the greenhouse problem. I approve!
