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.

BestThinking.com to Shut Down Permanently on December 31, 2017

If you want to save a copy of your content, you must do so before the website shuts down on December 31, 2017. We will NOT be able to provide any assistance after the website shuts down. We are available at support@thinkermedia.com only until the shutdown to provide more information and assistance.

It was a noble 10-year experiment, but it turns out that the writers with the best content are the least adept at the tech required to publish under our model, which in hindsight, makes perfect sense. If you are dedicating your life to becoming an expert in your specialty, you don’t have a lot of time left for figuring out publishing tech.

It hasn't helped that we have entered an age of unprecedented polarization and antagonism which doesn't foster demand for a website dedicated to the respectful engagement of diverse views.

Thank you, everyone!
