Scientists say you can’t create or destroy get-up-and-go. You can only change it into a different form of get-up-and-go, or into stuff.
Likewise, they say you can’t create or destroy stuff, you can only change it into other stuff or into get-up-and-go. For example, you can’t destroy a Big Mac, you can only change it into stuff.
By now you’re thinking this post is just a load of reprocessed burger. You’re probably snarling into your thickshake, “who says you can't make new stuff or get rid of existing stuff?”
“Says the Law!”
“What frickin’ law?”
“The Law of the Conservation of Get-up-and-go, one of the conservation laws said to govern the universe (whatever that is).”
But whether you conserve or you don't, if you eat too much you’re stuffed. And once you're stuffed, you're stuffed. If you're too massive, you just can't get up and go. But that's not necessarily a problem. Because even if you can't get rid of stuff, you can always move it somewhere else. Like into the Ocean.
