It certainly has been a while since I last wrote about chaos. Perhaps you could say I’ve been a little… unpredictable? Maybe the seemingly inconsequential decision of a certain someone on one side of the world, having read the post and enjoyed it, to not give the post a like (yes, I’m looking at you) somehow had the net effect of delaying me writing this one on the opposite side of the world. Or maybe I’m just incredibly unorganised… nah, it can’t possibly be the latter.
Last night, I quickly had a look at the weather forecast for today. It confidently reassured me that there would be a bright, sunlit morning with a 5% chance of rainy spells. Of course, I had no doubt in my mind that the forecast was telling the truth. In the morning, I awoke with a large yawn and a badly-needed stretch. As I got up to draw back the curtains and admire the sunshine, I felt a sharp chill creep up my spine. “Hmm, it’s oddly cold in here”, I thought. Throwing back the curtains in vivid anticipation, my eyes flinched at the glare. My garden was covered edge to edge in a thick layer of bright, white snow. Just as predicted, right?
It’s currently the summer holidays, and we must follow in the steps of the ‘cool’ kids and go outside and ‘socialise’ (pfft what is that?). That means, of course, that we see a screening of Finding Dory.
The Earth sadly contains limited resources, one of which is fossil fuels. Fossil fuels are formed over hundreds of millions of years from the remains of dead organisms, which have decomposed under a variety of temperatures and pressures. We are using fossil fuels at a quicker rate than they can be formed naturally, so it doesn’t take a genius to figure out that we are going to run out of fossil fuels sometime in the near future.
On with this trend of summer-related posts. If you have been in a dark-coloured car on a hot summer’s day, you may find that you’re roasting inside, whereas you may feel slightly cooler in a light-coloured car. Physics can help explain why.
