    My dad used to do this when I was little. When I was five my mom, dad, and I were at a buffet, and I looked up and asked why they had a light over each table. He simply replied that they made the food go bad more quickly, so people had to go and get more. I said ‘oh!’ and Mom just gave him an evil glance. Ironically my dad’s name was Calvin

    They use physics. I was taking a physics class in High School when this was first published. I decided to figure the answer and guess what it was a question on the test.

    My dad also does this. The only problem is that its hard to tell whether he is serious or not.

    This is as good as Dad’s explanation of the B&W world while he was growing up.
