Einstein described relativity using hot stoves and a pretty girl:
“Put your hand on a hot stove for a minute, and it seems like an hour. Sit with a pretty girl for an hour, and it seems like a minute. That’s relativity.”
I got round to thinking about combining the two – not by sending the pretty girl into the kitchen (yikes!), but thinking about something far more interesting:
When I kiss a hot girl for a minute, it seems like a second.
For the hot girl though, it would probably seem like an hour.
So the question is this: if I can make it last an hour for her…does that make me a good lover?
So much for thought experiments. I’ve got something I want discuss with my wife…
