What the heck does RANT mean?
« on: May 25, 2005, 10:44:16 AM »
for random thoughts.

I have a observation... although I'm not a physics major.... that winters seem to be quieter than summers.  When you go out for a ciggy in the winter it's all peaceful and quiet... but when you go out in the summer it's all noisy and *&^%.  I think it may have to do with atomic mobility as it relates to temperature, as sound travels more freely in hot environments than cold ones.

just a thought.

My thoughts on this are that people get busy more when the weather is colder.  I have done a non-scientific study among a large group of friends.  Most of us were born during the summer.  This means are parents were doing it in winter.  Perhaps this has some baring.

So I was peeing in the urinal yesterday when it hit me. I prefer street shopping in the winter.Why you ask? Well here's my reason. In the winter when you street shop the natural light is dim, making for highly reflective glare free store windows. And we all know about the expansive and contractatory (I made up that word right?) properties of glass. So when the inside tempurature is warmer than the outside temperature it makes the inner plane of the window slightly larger than the outer plane, thus creating a slightly concave surface. This makes you look thin and beautiful. Generally panes of glass are taller than they are wide, if you are walking past a store where the pane is wider than it is tall, look away, it will only make you look short. Conversely in the summer you look fat. This is a variation on the hall of mirrors attraction at amusement parks. Be forwarned that this is not always the case as some new windows are installed more snug than others to allow for settling and foundation frost heaving.I know what you're thinking, "Damn that was a long pee." Well your right, I think I drink too much coffee in the morning.So then I shook it twice ('cause any more and I'd be playing with it), and went back to my desk.

could be... but traffic noises are comperable in both seasons.

I hate putting away laundry.  I think I'd take any household chore above putting away laundry.  It's weird.  I don't know what it is about the process.  I don't mind doing it so much, transferring it to the dryer... but then taking it out of the dryer and folding it and putting it away...

Depending on where you live the traffic could be louder in the summer.  For instance since the weather is warmer now, I tend to drive with my windows down and my music turned up.  Also I shout obscenities at people smoking cigarettes.

you dumbasses, snow acts as insulation and a sound absorber, in addition colder air is denser and increases acoustic impedance and slows down the speed of sound.  Consequently you won't hear as much.
