Here’s something to start your weekend off with a smile: a (paraphrased) conversation between me and my husband, B.
B: Did you see the thing about Robert Downey, Jr. and the little kid?
Me: I saw there was a thing, but not what it was.
B (being patronizing): So, what character does RDJ play?
Me (being a smartass): Sherlock.
B: … Who else does he play? More famous.
Me: Well, there was that movie from the 90s with Marisa Tomei…
B: Iron Man! He’s Tony Stark. Right?
Me: Ohhhhh riiiiight.
B: So this kid got a 3D-printed arm, and RDJ was there to give to him. So it was like, Tony Stark made this Iron Man arm for you. Cool, right?
Me: Yes, very cool. As long as it didn’t have a real flight stabilizer in the palm. That might end up getting a little…chaotic.
B: Right, because he would be totally unbalanced trying to fly with just one.
Me: True, maybe he could make like a glove with one for the other hand. But how to power it? Maybe with a sleeve attached…
B: Yes, because your concern about the situation was obviously the kid’s balance.
Also, today is a very special Pi Day! 3/14/15 gives the first 5 digits of pi: 3.1415. So have a slice of pie in appreciation of this fascinating number that pops up all over the place in nature.
