Huh. I managed to miss this back when it was actually new. Probably because I was up to my farkin' eyeballs in grad school.

So I did a bit more digging around on this. Of course the concept of 'counting' got overblown by the media, but it ties into a much more comprehensive line of research regarding perception of body size and its effects on distance estimation.

How can I turn a thimblefull of physics 101 knowledge and 0 art ability into lame memes for science bros to regurgitate ad nauseum?

assjuice: thimblefull of physics 101 knowledge


Dude has a Bachelor's in the subject and used it to work with Nasa. I'd say that's a bit more than a thimbleful.

Yeah, they could have at least called it different so lazy bastards don't use just plain pound for both mass and weight.  Doesn't come up often, but always causes confusion.

So, you're both saying there's still hope for the metric Rhode Island, or a universal Lichtenstein?
