Yes...and I can sum it up briefly....The more relatives that are present on any given holiday, the slower time will move...the effect is more evident as the vodka supply dwindles.

The basic concepts, yes, but I can't even begin to understand the math involved.

The farther away you live from your relatives, the better you like them.

Special relativity states that time is relative to speed. Imagine you're traveling at the speed of light. and another you is just there sitting on the computer. The one traveling travels through time slower than the one reading this. Therefore once the traveling you comes back he would look younger than you. let's say you and the one traveling is 40 and he comes back 20 years later he would then be 60 and you would be 86. The faster you are the slower time is for you. <br />
<br />
General relativity involves gravity with the rate of time. Greater gravity is slower time.

Its all relative

Of course. Everything is relative.

I read an article..it explained the theory of realtivity so simply, and then later in the day, i was trying to see if i could explain it in my own words..not a chance in hell of being able to do that confidently..it got all twisted, and messed up.

Yes.

Yes , If I take her out to dinner I get stuck with the check .

I know it, but I don't get the whys.

Generally, but not specifically.

Of course.

well, KenWX <br />
<br />
is all kinda relative and it's not really there<br />

respect, from robbie

Yep
