Two Very Cool Geeky Links

Obey Gravity It's the Law!

I thought this was rather interesting. On Mercury I would be 99 years old but would have only lived for 148 days. But I probably would have one hell of a sun tan and skin cancer. I could finally call people hippies. So this gets me wondering someone on a TV show that says they are an alien and are 200+ years old like my home boy ALF is that in his years or earth years? Caused us at the office to wrap our brains around 80’s tv for a while.

I got 8700 days going on Earth at the moment. But on Uranus I am only .28 Years Old but have been kicking it for 12,084 days. Ahh to be young again. This was a lot of fun to play with and see how old my parents were. How old are you on Uranus. Or Neptune or Pluto. Feel incredibly young old or dead.

So the other link comes from the same page. How much do you weigh on another planet.

So lets take a base weight of 100lbs. That would translate to 2702lbs on the Sun. But if you are walking on the surface of the sun well that would suggest some very bizarre issues. But what has had me pondering is that I read a book as a child where we had colonized Mars and the Moon. What it was saying was that unless you could grow in the womb in the 1G we have on earth you could travel to other planets. But say you were concieved on Mars you could go to the moon but you could never go to earth beacuse the .37G on Mars is what your muscle development would be set at. Going to earth would crush you nearly instantly. The moon you could handle at 1/6th the gravity.

Interesting to Ponder. Now go on! Waste some time. You know you want to.

P.S. I still need a couch.

    I am going to try my best not to insert Uranus jokes in my comment. Haha! “insert uranus!” Whoops! Too late…

    After calculating my age on other planets and discovering how old I am on Uranus (0.3) and Mars (13.5–who wants to be 13 again? yuck!), I then looked at my Earth age: 25.4.

    25.4?? That means I’m almost 25 1/2 now! That means I’m almost 26, and 26 is closer to 30 than it is 20! I’m not sure how I feel about that.

    Not that 30 is old, really, but you know what I mean.
