Nice To See I Haven't Lost My Improv Abilities

At work, I was explaining why sounds from a certain small room are so loud when we hear them.  I explained the room was small enough that it basically acted like a speaker cabinet, intensifying the sounds.  "It's science," I said.

They nodded their heads at my wisdom.

For some reason, I couldn't let it stop there.  This is kind of sort of what I said next.

Yeah.  Science.  I mean, I can't help myself.  I use science recreationally.  I abuse science sometimes.  I started experimenting with science when I was a teenager.  I mean, it's everywhere.  You can't resist it.  The things you see are mind-blowing.  My dad (he studied nuclear engineering. -- G) found my little box of science paraphernalia under my bed and asked, "Who did you learn this from?!?"  I yelled back, "I learned it from you!"  3 out of 4 kids will have tried science at least once before before they leave high school, and thousands still use it every day.  Won't you help?
