Hands out of time...

So I've been seeing a girl jogging for years on one of my bike routes. I started waving to her (most people biking and jogging wave to each other)...and for years she never waved back....boy, stuck up, I thought.

Then a couple years ago she waved at me and I was surprised, and we've been waving at each other every time now for a couple of years since...she's finally with the program(: (She's dedicated too, I see her year round :) ).

Well this morning she was jogging towards me in the breakdown lane and instead of waving I slapped her the high five and the impact of our hands hitting was significant cuz we were both at speed moving towards each other.

And then I was thinking...

Because we were both moving, time was progressing differently for us relative to our homes, or anything else "stationary," and we were also moving torwards each other so our relative speed was cumulative.

Therefore, though miniscule, time was moving differently for us relative to each other, (according to Einstein at least).

But in the moment of impact, our hand speeds equalized, our hands matched speeds and matched time, (although time was still moving differently for the rest of our bodies).

So was that considerable impact felt related to inertia related to gravity as well? Is that why we felt the "pull" of impact as our hands slowed to match each other's relative time, (relative speed)?

Random things to think about while riding your bicycle :)

I thought, for a moment, or three, that it said "slapped her thigh."

Today Trump said that Iran is “the number one state of terror in the world.”

Having a larger screen means you can leave a whole lot more useless shortcuts there longer.

When your cruising at speed on your bicycle, standing up a little to go over bumps...
...rise up high enough so you don't leave your balls on the seat!

You ever been at a party and you hold someone else's glass for a sec, so you take a swig and go, "What the fuck are you drinking!"

Boy, some people have some weird personal tastes!

I tried bricks and airplane glue on the rocks :shock:

Saw a truck, yesterday, intentionally block traffic, to allow another truck to pass and change lanes.
Then, they went their separate ways.
Not partners, then, they must be Truck-Buddies".

UGH! They're so frustrating!

Tomorrow I'm gonna rent an SUV with angry grill and headlights, merge onto the 65mph interstate at 35mph, (I'm the only one important to everyone - they'll all slow down to let me in)...then swing over to the passing lane and drive slowly, forcing everyone to pass me on the right, then when they get in in front of me they'll discover my high beams are on and blinding them.

If I'm lucky, I can find a slow truck to pace beside, then I can really get 'em stacked up behind me.


Then Sunday, I'm gonna rent a 4x4 with a big-assed bully front end, and get in the passing lane and speed up behind all the slow SUV's in the passing lane with the most incredible closing speed I dare and get one meter off their bumper, and drive there until they pull over - which will be the 12th of never, because this is a dead-lock situation!

The grocery store I frequent has people waiting in line for longer than needed. 12 register available but only 3 cashiers. Of course one can give in and do a self-check out,after all, that's what you are being steered to, but I'm against that. Why would I do their job which has already been downsized? The self checkout began with one register and has blossomed into ten.
Gee, what became of the ten cashiers they no longer need.

Store CEO "Our studies have shown customers are willing to stand in line up to 20 minutes next to empty lanes without getting too upset. If they'll go for that, surely they wouldn't mind ringing up their own purchases. Further down the road, we will be experimenting with getting fast food customers excited about preparing their own food, bagging it, and paying for it in one fell swoop. After that, do-it-yourself-break linings & transmissions by using a step-by-step wall guide. Think of the $$ we can save by liquidating the workforce!"

One day they'll be forced into selling their stuff to robots.
Ordinary folks won't have the money to pay for it.
On welfare because of those robots.
Then, we'll see how they'll like that situation they put themselves in...
:P

U might be on to something Mij...

So we get a bunch of robots and program them to take our jobs, but give us most of the money they earn.

With the money they give us, we buy all the companies they work at.

Then we program them to watch TV and go into debt wanting/buying everything on the ads.

And we're set :)
