Rethinking Idioms: Slept Like a Baby

Have you ever heard anybody say, “I slept like a baby?” This is supposed to mean a deep sleep, but is that really what it says? On the surface, this seems like it makes sense, but if you think about, it really means something different than what we use it for. 

Here it means you slept a good uninterrupted sleep, but from my knowledge of sitcoms, not many babies do this. 

Babies sleep at random periods a day, but when they go to sleep for the night they randomly wake up waiting for their parents to sooth them. Hard to think this is happening to thousands of people everyday who are “sleeping like a baby.”

Also, they wake up crying. How do you think babies sleep if they constantly wake up crying like a baby? Not very well. (Not to mention the fact that they sometimes wake up with a less than pleasant diaper).

All in all, the saying, “slept like a baby” means essentially that one did not sleep like a baby. Either that or one spent the night waking up constantly, crying and might have wet the bed. I don’t know about you, but I would not want to tell anybody if that happened to me last night. 

Here’s hoping you never sleep like a baby ever again (unless you are a baby in which it is unavoidable. Also, props on knowing how to read as a baby),

Short Shorts #2: A Fault In Iron Man

As you all may know, Iron Man 3 recently was released and though I have yet to see it, I have one serious problem with his conception as a whole and that is, he is completely assassinatable.

1. His powers are in a suit.

2. Everyone knows who he is. 

3. He is a public figure.

Put these three things together and you get a guy who is mortal without his suit and constantly in public and potentially unprotected places and yet his worst enemies decide to attack him blatantly when he has his suit within reach. If one enemy decides to sniper him during a press conference, he is done for. Then again, as I've said before, movie villains aren't always that bright. I don't know about you, but I find it quite ironic (Get it?)

Short Shorts #1: Proving Einstein Wrong

We all know the famous equation of Einsteins E=mc^2, but is this equation true?

I took a deep look into it and realized that it cannot possibly be true, and I will tell you why. Look closely at what a 'c' is. If you attach an arrow to it, it is just a rotation by 270 degrees. If you rotate 'm' 270 degrees, it will be a backwards 'E.' If you do that twice, it become a 'w.' However, if you do it thrice, it will be an E. m->->w->E.

Thus, E=mc^3 not mc^2.

Thank you, thank you very much, no applause necessary. I'll just take my nobel prize and go.
