Happy Solstice!

("But KT," I hear you exclaim, "it's the shortest day of the year! What's happy about that?" I'll tell you what's: from now on, the days start getting longer. Yay!)

Yipe! Umm, lemme see, time speeds up when you travel close to the speed of light, so....

I guess the rest of the universe is racing past me on the fast lane and I'm running out of gas. Call AAA for me when you get to the next gas station, would ya?

Actually, it gets even weirder than that. If I recall from what I've read about relativity, if you observe someone zooming by in a very fast spaceship, his personal time frame will appear slow to you. But if he looks back at you, your personal time frame will, counterintuitively, appear slow to him.

That's what my mom would always say. Doesn't explain why most of the heavy snows and freezing are still ahead, though.

Well, there's bound to be some lag time. I mean, when you take a pill, your headache doesn't go away instantly, right? :}
