Person One: I love summer but hate how it takes longer to get places.
Person Two: I know – lots of other drivers on the road, people going to their cottages, all out and about.
One: No – it’s because it’s warmer out.
Two: Yes, more people are going more places making traffic hell.
One: No – it’s because when it’s warmer, miles expand. Like lots of things that get bigger when heated up.
Two: Wha–? That’s crazy.
One: No really. It’s because the miles are expanding. Literally. It’s thermodynamics. And backed up by evidence: think about how long it takes to drive to a cottage in the summer. Way longer than in the winter.
