Paraphrase of GMA story with a crash test of a Mercedes sedan versus a Smart car (by Mercedes). "The heavier car always hits the smaller car with more force."

Newton's Third Law, bitch! The force is identical. See me after class.

(But because the masses are different, the accelerations are different. While the management type feels a slight jolt, the smug granola eater is catapulted violently into the stratosphere.)

assuming the cars are going the same speed, the heavier car will always carry more momentum, so they weren't terribly far off. Good catch, though.

Yeah, I see May mention GMA from time to time, and it's clear we were both watching it on this fateful morning.

I remember watching morning TV at my babysitter's house over the summer. Lily threw a fit when AM America got cancelled and they put on some crappy show called Good Morning America instead.

Oops that last comment was from me, if it wasn't obvious.

We had a project with ABC News last October and hung out in the control room during the show, then we got a tour of the entire studio. And the whole team (sans Sam) walked by us and greeted us. I crapped my pants. Then we took pics in front of the desk and pics of me pointing to Diane in the background. What a loser.

I now have a GMA Train Tour plaque on my desk. It was a gift from the ABC News folks.

I'm such a middle aged woman.
