Questions Best Left to Theory

May 25th, 2010 by Potato

As an experimental scientist, I know that there is a lot you can only find out through direct experience, and more that is best learned that way. There are also a lot of questions that you really don’t want to find the answer to the hard way, such as whether there’s an afterlife, what would Stephen Harper do with an unfettered majority government, or would looking at a solar eclipse without eye protection be awesome enough to warrant the retinal damage?

To that list, I can now add: can my car withstand being kicked by a disembodied deer leg? (The answer is yes; also, deer have a lot of blood inside of them.)

PS: I’m really thankful I’m not the guy who just discovered how well his SUV took a head-on collision with a whole deer.

    You think a deer is bad, you should see what a Caribou can do.

    Or a moose. :/
