“I’ve lost weight” I announced.
Everyone congratulated me.
But Weight was the name of my son.
According to the Law of Conservation of Mass, matter can neither be created nor destroyed. This means that all atoms are recycled over time. Which in turn means that our own atoms are ancient as well. One’s skin could have carbon in it from a meteorite or from a trilobite thousands of years old, and your blood could contain hydrogen from earth’s original atmosphere.
we are irrelevant beings situated on a small piece of rock and metal in an endless universe revolving around an expanding star that will eventually engulf us in flame and destroy us all if we aren’t already dead by then and you want me to calculate the hypotenuse of a triangle?????????
