One day all the scientists in heaven decided to play hide-n-seek. Einstein was "it" and had to count up to 100 and then start searching.
Einstein starts counting... "1,2,3..."
Everyone starts hiding except Newton who just draws a square of 1 meter and stands in it right in front of Einstein.
"97,98,99... 100!" He opens his eyes and finds Newton standing in front.
Einstein immediately sees him and starts yelling, "Newton's out! Newton's out!"
Newton denies and says, "I am not out. I am not Newton."
All the scientists come out to see how he proves that he is not Newton.
Newton says "I am standing in a square of area 1m squared. That makes me Newton per meter squared since one Newton per meter squared is one Pascal, I'm Pascal. Therefore, Pascal is OUT!"

Mundane Journeys through an Amazing World
begins with Interstate 80. Not the most engaging topic, I know, but when you think about it, I-80 runs all the way across the North American continent linking San Francisco and New York. It's not just a ribbon of asphalt, it's a portal to far away, almost magical places.
My visits to major cities like Tokyo, London and Washington DC have been business affairs. I haven't rode a lot of roller coasters or ridden in open air buses, but I have visited with senators, bought yams from the back of a truck and barely escaped complete embarrassment when I was introduced to Matt Wiener in Vegas.
As I wrote the book I realized that over the years exotic, distant places have become more like the mundane places I've called home. But, as it turns out, there really aren't any mundane places, only mundane ways of looking at things.

the world... nutty.
