According To Einstein Twins In Bunker Beds Age Differently

Sep. 25, 2010 10:43 pm
Categories: everyday physics

Finally, another urban myth debunked, and something we have known all along: the twin in the lower bed lives longer than his/her twin sibling in the upper bed. You don’t believe me? Well, apparently Einstein predicted this in his theory of relativity and scientists have now proven it. You can listen to the Podcast Interview or download the transcript of the Podcast here.

I expect these to become questions on questionnaires for life insurance within weeks:

In your childhood did you sleep in a bunker bed?

  • a) yes
  • b) no
  • c) don’t know or can’t remember

If you answered the previous question with yes, did you sleep in:

  • a) the lower bed
  • b) the upper bed
  • c) neither lower or upper bed
  • d) both lower and upper bed
  • e) don’t know or can’t remember

And there are still people that maintain that science doesn’t play a major role in our daily lives!?

With thanks to this article that eluded me to this new finding.

No Worries, We Are NOT Vulnerable To The OpenSSL Bug

We do not use OpenSSL here at BestThinking.com or ThinkerBooks.com. No need to worry or change passwords here because of the widely-publicized Heartbleed Bug. We have suffered two short outages recently presumably because much of the Internet transport infrastructure does rely on OpenSSL and they have been updating their systems.
