The Friday Drabble #7: Breaking the Laws of Physics

Getting back into the whole writing thing again – I’m actually on a plane as this gets posted but once I have a little more time I’ll get a few other posts up that I’ve been working on.

Fridays are the days I post one or two “drabble“, the 100-word stories that test your ability to convey an entire story idea in an extremely brief format.  Feel free to join in and write your own 100 word stories on Fridays, and tag them with “friday drabble”.  Link to them in the comments and/or on Twitter with the hashtag #fridaydrabble.

Breaking the Laws of Physics

For every action, there is an equal and opposite reaction.

That was basic physics.  Even high school students knew it.  Felix, the biggest nerd in town, definitely knew it.  But every rule has exceptions; every law is made to be broken.

So that Thursday, when the school bully made his usual attempts to humiliate and terrorize Felix (wedgies, toilet swirlies, and petty thefts of lunch money), Felix didn’t react like a victim.  Hands trembling, he cocked the hammer of his grandfather’s borrowed pistol, aimed the barrel, and fired.

All the teachers said Felix was going places.  How right they were.

Heisenberg, Physics, and Relationships (and more)

Found another really funny webcomic at www.basicinstructions.net.  The general premise is that each strip is a "How to" do something that usually results in snarky and comical dialog as the individual(s) follow the instructions.

They range in subject matter from things like "How to Remember the Name of that Song…You Know, That One" to "How to Explain Sex to Your Child".  Pretty much every single one of them (and there are a decent number in the archives) made me laugh, but the following two were just geeky enough for me to want to share:

First, following close behind one of my recent posts about the Heisenberg uncertainty principle as it relates to know-it-alls being right, wrong, or "Ross-right", the infamous Heisenberg rears his head again:

And for one of Scott Meyer's regular style comics, here's a set of great physics joke that I only wish I could have made:
