"Some people say light is waves, and some say it's particles, so I bet light is some in-between thing that's both wave and particle depending on how you look at it. Am I right?" "YES, BUT YOU SHOULDN'T BE!"

@kfet: ...no. That is not what they mean. They are talking about the barycenter. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Barycenter_(astronomy)

I think the truth is somewhere in the middle... it is somewhere between Sagittarius A* and the Solar System's barycenter. And for the humor impaired I agree that Munroe was referring to the barycenter.

For someone who has ostensibly outgrown staying up late waiting for Santa, I do spend an awful lot of time refreshing websites to see if packages are here yet.

Recipe Relativity

It says to cut the onions into 1/4" slices, but I'd better correct for length contraction.

My favorite is Instant Pot recipes, which frequently don't include pressurizing or depressurizing time. Even with lightspeed prep, it's literally impossible to make these meals in the total time on the recipe.

Buy an air fryer. Errors are in the opposite direction, thus the kitchen stays more or less in the same place.
