Special Relativity

The first snow of the season has come and gone. Early in the morning of their treasured snow day, Barnacle Boy and Crash Kid made an expedition to the basement for their boots. The Boy's feet have grown since last winter -- the boots don't fit. The Math Man suggests that Crash wear my boots and Barnacle wear Crash's. I point out that this solution is unworkable, since the Boy's feet are a full size larger than mine and I haven't been able to wear Crash's shoes for several years. Math Man hadn't quite processed the new relative ordering!

New boots have been ordered!
