    Well basically I was in physics thinking genius type thoughts and then:

    BAM! it hit me, the next great scientific breakthrough of our generation, it's so beautiful, yet so simple.

    Here it is. Prepare to have your mind blown.

    g x y= c

    Acceleration due to gravity x the number of seconds in a year = the speed of light in m/s.

    What does this mean for us? What great scientific revelations are waiting in store for humanity because of my genius?


    I don't think the scientific world would be too interested tbh (what use will it be of?), but a nice (sort of find there)

    For everyone that can't be bothered to do the math:

    9.81 x 31 556 926 = 309 573 444.1 ms-1
    = 3.096 x 10^8 ms-1 (3dp)

    Not quite exact, considering the speed of light in a vacuum is generally abbreviated as 3*10^8 ms-1 in textbooks, and the exact value is known to be 299 792 458 ms-1.

    But still pretty nice.

    It's purely coincidental. I'm not actually the next Einstein
