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.

For all the benefits life on a boat can afford (horrible schedules, really hard work, fear of drowning, seasickness), it turns out there are also some downsides. And upsides. Then back downsides. It's not the most stable lifestyle, let's put it that way. Here are some fun and freaky moments of seemingly impossible physics thanks to that good ol' fixed camera.

So that's why some water slides at parks are shaped the way that they are. Yay, learning.

This gem of a throwback depicts Commander David Scott of the Apollo 15 showing what happens when you drop a hammer and a feather at the same time, when out there chilling on the moon. Basically, as per Galileo's findings, every object falls at the same rate regardless of mass.

36 Science Memes For People Who Are Smarter Than We Are

It would be an absolute understatement to say that science is not my strong suit. While I tell friends that I failed chemistry three consecutive quarters in a row, the real reason was because it was completely beyond me. My father, who basically started the organic chemistry program at his university, would sigh, yell, and eventually give up when none of the concepts he attempted to explain seemed to click. These science memes are not for people like me. They're more suited for STEM students and grads. They're more suited for...actual scientists. And while I may not be able to enjoy them, I can definitely share them with you. 

Funny memes about science, chemistry, lol

The Laws Of Physics Mean Jack Diddly-Squat To Cats

When it comes to physics, cats seem to defy it all. No one is quite sure if they come in a solid or liquid state, at this point. They can climb a smooth paving wall and just... stay there. And what's even more confusing than the act itself is how comfortable they look doing it. It's as if their strange and abnormal position doesn't seem to affect them in the slightest. 

Cats are strange mysterious creatures that we may be able to understand and solve. And we've made peace with knowing that. However, even though we've made peace with it, doesn't mean we are stumped every now and then when coming across images such as these below.

Tumblr User Commemorates Physics Professor With Purely Wholesome Post

It's not every day that you come across a Tumblr post from a user who honors just how amazing their Physics professor was. For an unfortunate many of us, our time spent in school can end up being much more of a painstaking process, occasionally brought down by teachers that don't bring that life and personality to the stage that students so sorely need to stay engaged. Well, this prof seems like he had the whole thing down to a science. And he wasn't even trying. 

For some more gold from Tumblr check out this post about why Linguini was the unbreakable champion in the movie "Ratatouille."

Science Memes For Smart People With Big Brains

We share a lot of memes on this site, and while some of them tackle philosophy, literature and art, there's not much representation of the right brain. These science memes are intended to change that. They feature a healthy mix of very basic science references and shitposts, and some more intense material for the smart and driven people who were in STEM classes. They're no substitute for actually studying these big-brained subjects, but they might make you feel smarter.

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.
