#### Storyboard Description

Funny (in some minds) jokes about gravity, friction, elastic force, and magnetic force.

#### Storyboard Text

• Zero Gravity
• Zero-G
• Hey, I've been reading a book on zero gr﻿avity, I just can't put it down.
• (Sarcastic Voice) Ha Ha Ha, you're so funny﻿
• More Conversation
• Fine, you want to know something else I've been reading about?﻿
• ﻿What?﻿
• ﻿Non-friction
• ﻿I was reading a non-friction book. It was really hard to grasp.
• Sorry if I rubbed you the wrong way.﻿
• ﻿I'm done.
• This joke scientifically makes sense because since gravity pulls things down to the center of the Earth, if he dropped his book, it would fall down, but with zero-gravity, it wouldn't fall, it would float in the air. Cool, right?
• ﻿Elastic Force Question﻿
• ﻿The suspense is killing me...
• ﻿Elastic Force Question﻿
• ﻿The first part of the joke makes sense because friction between two objects is what gives you a grip on it, if there was no friction, it would basically be impossible to hold. Imagine the entire book was made of a slippery surface, like ice, that's how it would be like. The second part of the joke refers to kinetic friction, which is basically about how friction is produced if two objects are moving in different directions next to each other.
• ﻿﻿Magnets and Sports
• ﻿Where do magnets play baseball?
• ﻿﻿I thought science class wasn't supposed to be fun...﻿
• Hey, what did the physics teacher tell us to play when we were learning about elastic force?﻿
• What?
• Joke explained: in Angry Birds, you typically launch birds out of a giant slingshot in order to destroy pigs. When you use the slingshot to launch the birds, you pull the slingshot back, and the harder you pull, the farther you go. This is a good example of elastic force and how it is used in real life (the slingshot part, not the destroying pigs part).
• Angry Birds!﻿
• Oh, I get it!﻿
•  ﻿You usually play baseball in a baseball field, so that's why it said magnetic field. In case you don't know, a magnetic field is a region around a magnet within which the force of magnetism acts, it's essentially the range of a magnet where it can attract magnetic materials.
• ﻿In a magnetic field!
• ﻿Where?
