About

I’m Jay Knitig.  It’s pronounced Kinetic.

This is a blog about everyday miracles. We’re surrounded by them.

Example: Einstein’s relativity, one of the most bizarre and awesome discoveries in history, is now part of your daily life.  Relativity is essential to the way your car’s or phone’s Global Positioning System works.  Even if you don’t use GPS, you likely benefit from it indirectly every day (delivery trucks to the stores your stuff comes from increasingly rely on it).

You can buy a bag of potatoes at Walmart that was delivered by a guy who was guided there by a vast orbital network that uses time dilation to make it work.

Living in the twenty-first century is awesome.
