February 29, 2016
Here’s a little leap year math for you. Feb. 29 is a date that occurs in most years that are divisible by 4, such as 2008, 2012, 2016, 2020, and 2024. Years that are divisible by 100, but not by 400, do not contain a leap day. Now that you’ve had your math lesson, let’s move on to physics. Newton’s First Law of Motion says an object (your body) in motion will continue in motion unless a force (seat belt) is there to prevent it.
Math and science hypotheses can be proven true or false, but what about this statement? “I don’t wear my seat belt because if I crash it is safer to be thrown clear of the car than to stay buckled in.”
