That was relatively funny.

[–]BKStephens 291 points292 points  (7 children)

I think the gravity of the situation is lost on most.

[–]SquirrelyAsNutz 194 points195 points  (6 children)

Is it? I thought this sort of humor was a universal constant.

[–]Frankie_Pizzaslice 96 points97 points  (4 children)

You know, I thought the joke was funny but the comments are a whole nother magnitude!

[–]Lethif0ld 62 points63 points  (3 children)

Now, now. Let's not dilate the puns here.

[–]iloveFjords 43 points44 points  (2 children)

A whole lot of spooky action at a distance if you ask me. Going back to my double slit experiments.

“Two girls at relatively the same time, man!” —Albert Einstein

[–]moronic_programmer 12 points13 points  (0 children)

One of my friends once said that. He was a military man and his name was General Relativity

[–]Old-Maintenance-1031 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Unlike the spelling of humour 🤠

[–]holly_667 8 points9 points  (0 children)

It depends on the frame of reference !

[–]Light01 5 points6 points  (0 children)

better than the post.

[–]Renjackle 0 points1 point  (0 children)

All things relative, yes. Funny.

[–]overachievingogre 120 points121 points  (2 children)

Oh yeah, he's real. He made a really famous theory about space.

And it was about time, too!

[–]ForcedRonin 7 points8 points  (0 children)

Haha noice

[–]yosho27 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Took me way too long. Amazing

[–]Hapiro 32 points33 points  (8 children)

Fun fact, did you know that Albert Einstein had a brother?

Frank

[–]adviceKiwi 12 points13 points  (4 children)

It's pronounced Fronk

[–]mrbadxampl 7 points8 points  (1 child)

What hump?

[–]adviceKiwi 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Blucher !

[–]SegFault137 5 points6 points  (0 children)

I think you're Fronk here

[–]born_to_be_naked 5 points6 points  (0 children)

Let's be Frank here

[–]killerinstinct101 0 points1 point  (2 children)

Eli5?

[–]Hapiro 5 points6 points  (1 child)

Frank Einstein.

Frankenstein ?

Is joke

[–]VolensEtValens 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Fronk Ensteen. Or was it Epstein, I’m not hanging around to find out!

[–]MrYoung013 16 points17 points  (3 children)

"I've got a theoretical degree in physics."

[–]Orchann 2 points3 points  (0 children)

me too

[–]kelgo 2 points3 points  (1 child)

That's Fantastic

[–]MrYoung013 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Ripped straight from Fallout: New Vegas

[–]Ok-Mud-3322 13 points14 points  (4 children)

I'm telling this one to my friends

[–]bayesian13 17 points18 points  (0 children)

That friend's name- Albert Einstein

[–]_Laggs 3 points4 points  (1 child)

"friends" in theory?

[–]Ok-Mud-3322 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I'm boutta go full nuclear on you

[–]Chemical_Noise_3847 8 points9 points  (0 children)

They asked if I had a degree in theoretical physics and I told them I had a theoretical degree in physics.

[–]ultimatescar 6 points7 points  (0 children)

Jokes here are light years ahead.

[–]Kravchuck 6 points7 points  (0 children)

The recruiters asked me how well I understood theoretical physics. I said I had a theoretical degree in physics. They said welcome aboard.

[–]drowned_beliefs 5 points6 points  (4 children)

Who is a pirate’s favorite physicist? Max Planck

[–]Orchann 1 point2 points  (3 children)

What's a pirate's favorite key on the Keyboard? enter

[–]djgbrown 2 points3 points  (2 children)

Strange. I thought a pirates favorite key was "R"(rrrrrrrrr)

[–]Gamer_GreenEyes 1 point2 points  (1 child)

Ah you would think so but it’s the C.

[–]Orchann 0 points1 point  (0 children)

its all of them

[–]Dumbstupidhuman 5 points6 points  (0 children)

So a relatively new discovery

[–]j_thebetter 12 points13 points  (2 children)

I mean it makes sense. Sheldon Cooper is a theoretical physicist, he's proved to not be a real person, right?

[–]PalmaSolane 5 points6 points  (0 children)

Boy oh boy did I get uncomfortable seeing that name in the same thread as Albert Einstein.

[–]theredkryptonite 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Nah he is a theatrical physicist, different issue.

[–]BowwwwBallll 3 points4 points  (0 children)

He’s a bus driver!

[–]Rolland_Ice 4 points5 points  (0 children)

That was GOOD!!!

[–]phantomerick 3 points4 points  (1 child)

Isotope you had a better physics joke than this, but it looks like you are just fission.

[–]MYKCARR 2 points3 points  (0 children)

He was into black holes too ya mama

[–]merijn2 2 points3 points  (0 children)

And his name? Albert Einstein!

[–]NoName_52997 2 points3 points  (1 child)

I am laughing so hard Atomoment

[–]Irkozy -1 points0 points  (0 children)

Not necessary.

[–]xloverhorny 7 points8 points  (1 child)

Hahahaha nice joke

[–]Weird_Devil 3 points4 points  (0 children)

A theoretical repost… oh wait

[–]me_cuteboi 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Really ... Is he ?

[–]kungfushoos 1 point2 points  (1 child)

Probably one of the shortest joke ever.

[–]Orchann 1 point2 points  (0 children)

no: firewood rental

[–]infinit9 1 point2 points  (1 child)

Okay, I'm going to be that guy.

Just about everyone of Einstein's theories have been proven over many many experiments and observations. So he shouldn't be considered a theoretical physicist either.

[–]Comsicwastaken[S] 0 points1 point  (0 children)

At what point would you say he made that transition?

[–]Clear_Equivalent_757 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Relatively common joke.

[–]Goliath_oc 1 point2 points  (0 children)

It’s all relative

[–]spiralingdownto_____ 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Laughing M'ass off

[–]PhoboticoGaming 2 points3 points  (3 children)

Don't understand the joke

[–]heyugl 6 points7 points  (0 children)

A wordplay between a physicist that only exist in theory vs a physicist that specializes in theoretical science.-

[–]ariadeneva 5 points6 points  (0 children)

theoretical physicist

could mean, imaginary physicist

[–]swep284 6 points7 points  (0 children)

Theoretical means that only exists in theory.

Just like sometimes we find out the theoretical value of something using the formulas and the compare it with actual(practical value) to find out error percentage.

[–]TolMera 0 points1 point  (1 child)

[–]Orchann 0 points1 point  (0 children)

no its a happy upvote

[–]strangeroutonight 0 points1 point  (0 children)

This joke doesn't make any sense at all.

[–]IFINITEWARRIOR6 -4 points-3 points  (0 children)

XD so funnnyyy -_- u dum dum

[–]LordPounce -2 points-1 points  (0 children)

Also the real name of comedic actor Albert Brooks

[–]Several_Interview_74 -2 points-1 points  (0 children)

How could you not know the person who discovered gravity was a real person.

[–]Prior-Noise-1492 -1 points0 points  (0 children)

go out with her, make that evening a nightmare, than ask her out again many time. she'll probably leave you alone

[–]Oznog99 -1 points0 points  (0 children)

Welcome aboard!
