Here’s a thought for you: Thank you for friction! 🙂
That’s the kind of thing that smug physicists can use as a litmus test to judge people. How ignorant exactly are you? Are you annoyed by friction causing your car to use more fuel or are you happy about friction making it possible to drive to begin with?
That kind of thing.
Truth be told, I’m just happy that it makes me be able to climb up steep mountainsides – when I want to, which isn’t all that often.
