TRUE QUOTES ABOUT SCIENCE FROM KIDS
Part 1

~ One horsepower is the amount of energy it takes to drag a horse 500 feet
in one second.

~ You can listen to thunder after lightening and tell how close you came to
getting hit. If you don't hear it, you got hit, so never mind.

~ When they broke open molecules, they found they were only stuffed with
atoms. But when they broke open atoms, they found them stuffed with
explosions.

~ When people run around and around in circles, we say they are crazy. When
planets do it, we say they are orbiting.

~ While the earth seems to be knowingly keeping its distance from the sun,
it is really only centrificating.

~ Most books now say our sun is a star. But it still knows how to change
into a sun in the daytime.

~ A vibration is a motion that cannot make up its mind which way it wants to
go.

~ Many dead animals of the past changed to fossils, others preferred to
become oil.

~ Vacuums are nothings. We only mention them to let them know we know they
are there.

~ Some people can tell what time it is by looking at the sun. But I have
never been able to make out the numbers.

~ We say the cause of perfume disappearing is evaporation. Evaporation gets
blamed for a lot of things people forget to put the top on.

~ I am not sure how clouds get formed. But the clouds know how to do it, and
that is the important thing.

~ In making rain water, it takes everything from H to O.

~ Rain is saved up in cloud banks.

~ Cyanide is so poisonous that one drop of it on a dog's tongue will kill
the strongest man.

~ Thunder is a rich source of loudness.

~ Isotherms and isobars are even more important than their names sound.

~ It is so hot in some parts of the world that the people there have to live
in other places.
