Hey! To start this decade right, we believe Newgrounds should be ad-free for EVERYONE. For this to work, we need people who have the means to become paying supporters. For just \$3 per month or \$25 for the year, you can help this happen and get some nice perks!

For the month of February we have disabled ads on all E-M content. We need 213 people to reach our goal of 3,100 active supporters. If we hit that, we'll continue with a new goal in March!

Please check out our Supporter Upgrade and consider coming aboard!

## Ten Minutes 'Till Midnight

So, this is a bit of a religious political cartoon. Think about it. Eventually the meaning will sink in.

Newgrounds accounts are free and registered users see fewer ads!

This is deep, man, so deep... we're like the fish? Though I feel there should be more than that, too. Midnight's closing in; maybe this will make better sense in a morning light...

Yeah.

Like, truth is relative. I mean that's the whole point of the Theory of Relativity. If I'm in a train that's moving 10MPH and I throw a ball going 10MPH and you're outside of the train, you'll see a ball moving 20 miles per hour while I'll say it was only moving 10 miles per hour.

Who's right?

We both are.

Now that we know that the solar system is like a series of orbiting commit's flying through space, we don't factor in the stellar drift, the rotation of the Earth, and Earth's orbit when we specify what the speed limit needs to be. Yet if anything, the outside observer would technically be MORE correct. But it would make no sense to people on Earth. What if we're moving the opposite direction of the earth's axis? How could our speedometer measure our speed?

So we settle on the lesser information, speeds of object relative to us being on Earth. Because things are easier to measure.

Sometimes I run into people that think they know all this religious crap, and I just... roll my eyes.

For example. I know I can exist because I can ask the question. I think therefore I am. But I can't use that same task on behalf of a rock. I can't prove it exists. Yet, when I talk about my feeling or what I'm thinking, people will consider the rock to be more real than what's going on in my head.

So what's real?

Yet, we DO think Thoughts are real, just not as real... even though that's how we know we exist. Otherwise we'd ignore Math. Math is just a series of logical thoughts that render a result that we can't disprove. Yet we accept math as being just as real as the rock.

Yet your independent thoughts about essential oils being a cure for cancer aren't seen as real when compared to massive case studies.

It's this ironic circle we as humans go though.
