Usual problem - It's obeying the Laws of Physics; you just have to figure out which ones...

I've heard it said that these sort of sessions, where you have to explain something, are supposed to help you clarify things in your own head if you're the explainer. I suppose it depends on whom you're explaining to. The main effect on me is that it seems to increase my blood pressure... so a potentially apposite cartoon!

From here it looks as though you're trying to figure out what wind speed is required to force the palm trees outside the plant to blow over...

Try explaining it to a stuffed animal.

They're usually sufficiently patient not to adversely affect your blood pressure.

It's like knowing someone so well that you can finish their sentences, but you never have to, because both of you know what's going to be said anyway.

A great sense of closeness, but very confusing for others watching you.

Exactly. It's like those friends that you don't see for a long while, but when you see each other again, you start a conversation in the middle instead of at the beginning. This just confuses everyone else around you. You know each other well enough that the beginning part is just not needed.

I do this with my brother, and we catch up just fine. Unfortunately I carry it as a habit to other folks and it drives my mother up the WALL.

A few years ago I was chatting with one of my old physics classmates/friends who's now off doing oceanography stuff.
"So the undersea currents cause a bulge in the water, but those bulges stabilize and are related to the speed of the current."
"Because it balances with gravity pulling down, right?"
"Oh my GOD it's so good to talk to someone who UNDERSTANDS this stuff! Everyone else here comes from biology!"
"Well of course. When in doubt, balance the forces!"
