  • Santa Claus: An Engineer's Perspective

    I don't know how many decades this has been floating around (the original version, at least)...but for those of you that have never read it...here's the real skinny on jolly ol' Santa.

    Makes a great bedtime story to tell your naughty and nices.

      The problem with the contention that there would be vaporization of the subjects is that it neglects some common tenets of einsteinian physics. Clearly, the sleigh moves so fast that it causes time dilation (which allows for more coverage), but a mass as large as the sleigh, moving at such speeds, would be such that the world would revolve around it, instead of the other way around.

      Which, when you think about it, is true. Most of the world revolves around Santa Claus.
