Tonight I was reading a retelling of Goldilocks and the Three Bears and was entertained by the physics or "non-physics" of the story. The Papa Bear's porridge was too hot. Okay, that works. His bowl contains the largest amount of porridge so it'll take the longest to cool. But then the Mama Bear's porridge is "too cold". If the story were scientifically correct, Goldilocks would be enjoying Mama Bear's bowl of porridge since Baby Bear's porridge in the small bowl would get cool the fastest.

Anyone else know of any Fun Physics?

    How funny. I had that EXACT thought as I was reading that story to the kids the other day. It doesn't make sense to me either.
