Lunch Break: Impress Your Sweetie Edition
This is a sort of touching thought:
Thom had an idea for a date. He wanted to rent a cherry picker, drive it to her door, and pick her up in it.
Then, he’d drive to the beach, and get there at just the right time to watch the sun set.
Once the sun had set, he’d activate the cherry picker, they’d be lifted up above the beach …
… and they’d watch the sun set again.
Randall Munroe looks into the math of this and thinks it might work out. He suggests starting the cherrypicker in a deep hole, however, so your eyes begin at sea level.
