The Time Travel Theory of Vacation

I have a theory about vacation. It is very simple. When you go on vacation of greater than 3 days, you grow and feel a little younger and come back (sometimes or that is the intent) rejuvenated. However, your co-workers who remained behind aged normally and nothing has really changed. They're like 'oh boy, she's back. whoppee!'

From Einstein's Theory of Relativity, smart people have postulated that if a spaceship traveled at speeds approaching the speed of light, "their great speed slows down the rate of passage of on-board time...[making] it possible for passengers in a fast-moving vehicle to travel further into the future while aging very little"

So, when you go on vacation, think of it as an escape from your present into the future while remaining in the present...

Happy Time Traveling!!!
