Vickie and I don’t exactly work a normal Mon-Fri week, but we have a kid in school, which means we feel the same way about Mondays as pretty much everybody else does. So we figured we’d lighten Mondays up a bit with our new series starting today, called Peter & Vickie’s Laws of Life. LOL for short Why, you ask, does Peter get top Billing for this series when Vickie has it for the posts? Well I’m writing the first one in the series, so I get to name it.
Feynman was one of the world’s greatest theoretical physicists, so I thought we’d start the series off with an LOL loosely based on a law of nature, namely Antoine Lavoisier‘s Law of Conservation of Mass, which, simply put, states that mass in never created or destroyed; it just gets rearranged or converted into energy. So here’s the LOL corollary:
You’re more likely to gain weight if someone you know is losing weight. According to Lavoisier, all that weight people lose HAS to go SOMEWHERE, right? So if your wife complains that you’re getting fat this holiday season, ask your her to STOP LOSING WEIGHT. It only makes it harder for you.
Next Monday, we’ll have another LOL. Until then enjoy a week of good food, good music and good friends — and encourage everybody to eat as much as they like.
