This is a visualization imagining you’re a beam of light departing New York City, traveling the circumference of the Earth, and returning to New York City. How long does it take? Well since the speed of light is approximately 300,000km/s and the Earth is about 40,075km in circumference, it takes
Watching paint dry: I’m into it. It’s relaxing, like sitting on the toilet staring at the shower curtain with your elbows on your knees until your legs fall asleep and you have to crawl out of the bathroom on hands and knees. But enough about my morning ritual, this is
