Amusingly, there are 5 minutes between @40hz's
1st post (the rant) and his 2nd post above, following the "class photo" one that I did. Apparently dropped pennies do not follow the law of gravity where the velocity (v) of a falling body that falls from rest is found by multiplying g by the time (t) during which a body falls: v = gt
I hope it gave rise to a smile anyway.
I blame it on @kyrathaba
for lightening up the discussion with his joke about "Barack Obama met with the Queen of England". It gave me the idea to make an in-context, but rather tongue-in-cheek joke.
Whilst I was making the post, I explained the joke to my wife (she is from the Isaan region of NE Thailand), and she said "Yes! In Thailand we say that Chinese people all look the same too - especially the babies. And it is the same for us Isaan people - we all look the same to Thai people - especially the babies. They can often tell we are from Isaan just by looking at our faces, which have noticeably flatter noses than most Thai people.
