Random pastry movement: brownie in motion.

You can now get this as a mug :bucktooth:



When I first heard about random particle movement, I was in 8th grade. And all I heard was “brownie in motion,” which, while odd, didn’t seem any stranger than any other phrase I’d heard in my science career.

Fast-forward seven years to my Modern Physics class in college. It was then that I learned the phrase was “Brownian motion,” but only after telling my brownie in motion story to my fellow physics majors. They were pretty appalled, but it seemed to explain their curiosity behind why I was always the person boosting the test curves by failing everything.

I think it goes like this:

Long short story
-Someone ate sweets/brownies, had a stomach ache, and went to the bathroom

I have never heard of Brownian Motion...or Brownies in Motion. (If my brownie is moving, I don't generally interact with it :XD: ) But I am glad you explained in the artist notes. It made the whole thing a whole lot funnier for this layman. :XD:

It's funny how we hold on to certain interpretations from childhood that end up being totally wrong. When I was a child, for a while, I thought the line in Silent Night ("Jesus, lord at thy birth") was "Jesus, low in fiber." :giggle:

Congrats on the DD!

I think there's gonna be interesting about brownie in motion in Physics. Very funny, but it's true! :lol:

Congratulations for the new Daily Deviation!

that was funny, and they know it (your fellow physics majors)
