What would happen if you tried to hit a baseball pitched at 90% the speed of light?

I was surprised at how close I guessed at the correct answer.

Ruth, the photo didn't come through to my Wall, but I was able to get it from my mailbox! Most often I can't. 

I love the demonstration of balance. We need to learn how to balance our lives in this crazy up is down, war is peace, world. 

I'm very glad I was able to retrieve it. I'm sharing it.

ROFL  :D

If you're important enough, you need only stand on the rolling chair holding the lightbulb, because the world will revolve around you!

Comment by Mriana on January 9, 2015 at 1:42pm

Yeah, it's not the smartest way to change a light bulb, but it works... if you're very careful.

Being short does have quite a few disadvantages.  I'm medium height (5' 8"), so don't have too many problems, but I've used rolling chairs often, mostly because I'm often too lazy to get a proper stool.

And thanks.  I'm glad you enjoyed my sense of humour.  I have to have one, as you can see.  lol

Maybe, Idaho Spud, but the floor and table looks really yellow on my comp and the angle of it makes it look like a child's home-made ladder.  I've made many different attempts as a kid (a very short one at that) to make various ladders. According to my mother (who was 4'11" like myself, until she shrunk to about 4' 8" and now is 70) many people thought I was 2 y.o. when I was 5 y.o. and the dr was a bit concerned until he also found out my bio-father was 5' 3".  She was always on me to use either a stool or a step ladder, instead of experimenting with different ways to climb like an ape or make ladders.  When I had my sons and they began to climb on counters and stuff to reach things, I didn't scold them for it, because I was the one who taught them to do it.  lol  Try balancing on a rolling adjustable desk chair to change a light bulb.  I've done it many times.  Can't say it is safe, but anything that works is good enough.  Who knows?  I could have been a child's attempt at a home-made ladder.  :lol:

Yes, that top pencil does look ready to fail.
