In the car while driving back from Toronto on a Sunday night, a few weeks ago.
Me: On a scale from 0 to 10 how hungry are you?
D: Are we talking on a linear scale or a logarithmic scale, and if it’s the latter, what base?*
Me: (rolling my eyes) Let’s pretend we’re normal human beings for the length of this conversation and say it’s a linear scale, ok?
D: Then what does 0 mean? And what does 10 mean? Does it mean I’m full or that I’m so full that I want to give my food back?
* if this is not making sense to you, don’t worry. D likes to ask this question a lot. Also, when we’re talking about Physics related stuff he loves saying “Yes, that’s correct. If you’re in a vacuum.” just to be annoying and probably prove how smart he is.
