My first instinct was to shrug and say “we may never know” but you know what? No! Mysteries exist to be solved. This is what physics was built to do- unravel the secrets of the universe. If we don’t use the amazing technologies developed over hundreds of years of study in the fields of mathematics and physics to solve these kinds of issues, then what’s the point? It’s been a while since I’ve taken a physics class, but I tried to puzzle this one out:
On the horizontal plane, everything seems to check out- basically all that needs to happen is the outward force from the boob to equal the pressure from the towel. Ok, cool.
The vertical plane is where the physics began to elude me. In a normal Newtonian physics problem, Fn equals Fg, where Fn (the normal force) is the upward pressure that counteracts gravity (i.e, the floor pushing up on your feet against the downward force of your weight). However, I couldn’t see the source of a normal force. Is it from the skinny patch of boob that seems to be holding the whole event up? Unlikely. The only other possible source of upward force is an upward frictional force between boob and towel. The frictional constant would be inflated due to the water. But at this point I realized that I had no idea how to calculate an upward frictional force in this scenario. So I called in an expert.
I interrupted my roommate, a physics major, as she was doing some complicated things calculating intensities of light from stars or something. I don’t really know, I wasn’t really listening- my conundrum with boobphysics in Bleach was much more pressing than uncovering the secrets of stars. I employed my most persuasive tactics- slumping like an attention starved cat across her laptop, eating her food, and whining pitifully in an adorable way that she said was “ultrasonic” and “oh my god my nose is bleeding” and “stop it stop it I hate you”. Eventually, after collaborating and debating with the greatest minds on campus, she produced this:
Her explanation included indecipherable phrases like “no” and “why would you ask me to do this” as well as “ancient wizard magic” and “sewed onto her skin???”.
I was in awe. This level of physics was beyond my understanding. Judging by the way she slammed the door and left, this problem is weighing heavy on her mind. Will keep you updated on any progress.
THIS. Dear lord, my sides
Here is what I know now
Goes like this
In your love, my salvation lies
Feminist Bolin / Perfect Man Bolin [x]
Oh Bolin, you such a sweetheart
okay Bolin why aren’t you real, darling?
just…. exist already
I admit I got a soft spot for him. His brother is just… eeh…
Bolin you win! that’s why your fans scream so loud xD
I want to take away your pain.
I want to erase all of the memories that haunt you.
I want to go back in time and destroy anyone who dared to break your heart.
I get so angry when I hear songs, see movies or read poems that I know will remind you of them, those who broke your heart.
