Have you ever stopped washing dishes in order to play with the suds, trying to make lakes and islands of complex shapes, and dividing it into nations warring with one another for territory?
Have you ever watched cars, wondering what they would look like exploded, wondering how they might look different depending on where the charges are placed?
Have you ever wondered what surface conditions might be on a planet made entirely out of cake once gravity has compressed it, allowed the heavier elements to settle, and the surface finally cools enough to solidify? Would two planets – one of coffee and one of decaf coffee – be measurable different after 1000 years? After 1000000? After 1000000000? What kind of rock would car suspension springs become compressed into if there were a mass of them 5000 miles across?
Have you ever formed your hands into airplane-like shapes and run back and forth making jet or propeller noises? What about geese? Hummingbirds? Jellyfish? Tarantulas? Cob spiders? Jumping spiders?
I've had a lot on my mind lately.
