I have just been given God’s bathroom scale!
Yes, this is truly a devine bathroom scale. Jesus himself has weighed himself with it every morning, sucking in his gut and peeking through the holes in his feet at the numbers. Why, hark! Angels can be heard singing with every spin of the numbered dial.
So, anyway, that afternoon I lug my trusty Brunswick bowling ball up the Empire State building.
If I’m remembering my (somewhat remedial) high school physics, I have just charged said bowling ball with alot of Potential Energy. This energy is powerful enough to crack the sidewalk if released (by dropping the ball off the side), so I know this energy exists (you still with me?).
If I weigh this bowling ball charged with potential energy on God’s Devine Bathroom Scale (keep in mind its perfect in every way) would it weigh MORE than it does on the ground (where theres NO potential energy)?
Aren’t you sorry I found this message board?
