About

I’m Jay Knitig.  It’s pronounced Kinetic.

This is a blog about everyday miracles.

The title comes from the fact that Einstein’s relativity, one of the most bizarre and awesome discoveries in history, is now part of your daily life.  Relativity is essential to the way GPS works.  Even if you don’t use GPS, you likely benefit from it indirectly every day (delivery trucks to the stores your stuff comes from increasingly rely on it).

You can buy a bag of potatoes at Walmart that was delivered by a guy who was guided there by an orbital network that uses time dilation to make it work.  Living in the twenty-first century is badass.
