Title says it all! Go on and post 'em if you got 'em.

"assume there is no friction" that sure made the question easy

A funny observation I made regarding a common phrasing in physics questions. commonly physics questions they tell you to ignore friction. this has obvious reasons, however this means that any vehicle that uses wheels is not be able to move due to the lack of friction between the surface and the wheel. meaning that the technically correct answer is often just 0

wonder if the exam board of my study would agree and give me full marks.

Can someone please explain this joke

“No matter how hard you try to teach your cat general relativity, you’re going to fail.”

This is a quote from Brian Greene and I don’t understand it, can someone please help?

When yo mama so fat, she was asked by LIGO to jump up and down, so they could calibrate their interferometer to detect gravitational waves.

Why do hipster planetary scientists prefer the Hadean?

Because they liked the Earth before it was cool.

I'm going to the beach next week, gonna have a dip in the Dirac Sea.

I won't look at the water, or the waves will collapse.

I bought a new energy efficient LED light bulb, the package says it uses 10 kWh per 1000 hours operation

It's measured in what?

Guess it’s true or not

During my upbringing, I attended a strict boarding school with a schedule that left little room for free time. My last class typically extended until 9:50 PM, and the power would shut off by 10:30 PM. In order to ensure ample time for everyone to take hot showers, and driven by curiosity about how things operate internally, I attempted to apply this curiosity to solve a specific problem. Noticing that when everything else was turned off, the corridor sensor lights remained powered, I deduced they must be connected to a separate circuit.

The corridor lights were traditional Chinese incandescent bulbs, hanging high from the ceiling. Along with five other roommates, we moved a wooden desk from our dormitory to the corridor. Standing on the desk, I just reached the light bulb. After removing the bulb's casing, I pulled out its wires, identifying the live wire (red) and neutral wire (blue) based on my knowledge from physics class. Swiftly processing these wires—partially stripping the insulation, folding the inner wires, and twisting them tightly. A roommate handed me a Bull power strip (renowned for its quality in China), and we unscrewed the main plug of the power strip, inserting the live wire into the L socket and the neutral wire into the N socket. Since the light bulb lacked a ground wire, we left the central hole of the Bull power strip empty. Naively, I didn't take additional safety measures, assuming that standing on the wooden desk provided insulation. Fortunately, no major issues occurred. After completing these tasks, we used the power strip as the main switch for our dormitory's electrical supply.

The first successful day brought excitement, as we hadn't anticipated that a few simple physics and electrical operations could solve such a significant life problem. Due to it being a "first offense," we exercised restraint, promptly returning the wooden desk to the corridor after showering to restore everything to its original state. As we continued these covert activities daily, without any apparent risk of discovery, our boldness and dissatisfaction grew. We even extended to staying up all night without restoring things, with some pulling all-nighters for online classes or gaming. We went so far as to connect the "main switch" to adjacent dormitories, inviting others to share in our joyful experience.

After three consecutive days of shared electricity, a light bulb burned out due to circuit overload. When the teacher, replacing the bulb, noticed traces of insulation being cut from the wires, they reviewed surveillance footage and discovered our actions.
