Relativity is Not a Theory

Relativity is not a theory in July, when temperatures in Georgia start topping out over 100F.

Theorum: Folks don't have to be kin to point out the relatives.

Proof: If 10 unrelated friends stand on my front porch at 9 o'clock p.m. on a day that the high hit 112, then someone will inevitably have his weather app open and be calling out the current temperature.

If someone calls out the current temperature at 9 p.m. and that temperature is between 94 and 98 degrees, then everyone will remark on what a pleasant, cool evening we are having.

If everyone remarks on the chill of the 97 degree night air, then someone will say, "It's all relative."

We learn to appreciate what we've got, because complaining would only make us miserable. That's the Theory of Positivity.

I'm totally with you there. I'm grateful for the little things in life -- the glass is always half full as far as I'm concerned. (And the weather's getting pretty hot over here in Egypt, just like Georgia!)

Not sure there is anywhere in North America that is cool at the moment. It doesn't stop people complaining although they will be moaning again in the winter.

All things being equal, I'd rather it be minus thirty with five feet of snow!
