Albert Einstein claimed that everything in the world is relative. One day he was riding in a tram, looked at the street clock and suddenly realized that if the tram accelerated to the speed of light, this clock would disappear for him, as well as the perception of time itself. So it is with everything else: we consider objects only from a certain point of view. Is the plane fast? Yes. If you compare it with a snail or at least a car. But if you compare the speed of the aircraft to the speed of light, then he himself will turn out to be a "snail".
Here are the things from our selection: if you look at them from one side, they have some characteristics, and if from the other— they are completely different.
"This sole seemed quite good until I compared it to the new one!"
A brand new and well-written notebook.
"My water filters: new and after 5 months of use."
It's hard to believe, but these jars contain the same amount of jam.
"I thought I wasn't taking enough makeup on vacation until I saw what my husband was taking with him."
"Over time, my cat Lola changed the color of her fur. In the photo on the left she is 1 month old, on the right - 8 years old."
Guess which of these buckets was on the street and which one was in the garage?
"They just took the palace off the right side of the floor and were surprised by its real color."
The windows of a smoker in comparison with the windows of a non-smoker.
The brain of a shark and a dolphin.
"On the left is my last year's notebook, on the right is exactly the same new one."
The sewing needle seems very sharp… But this photo clearly demonstrates that after a month of use it is very different from the new one.
Old and new deck of cards.
The difference in the number of wins and losses in lottery tickets in the amount of $ 1,000.
A 5-liter bottle of wine against the background of an ordinary one seems really gigantic!
Clear sky ahead, grey clouds behind. So what's the weather like now?
"The girl complained that her foot was too big, but when I put mine to her shoes, she immediately calmed down."
And again about the difference in size. The girl seems to have a normal-sized hand, but relative to her boyfriend's hand, it seems very tiny.
"We saw this buoy on the beach today. When you look at it from the shore, it doesn't look so big."
"The skin color on my hands and feet is very different."
"A washcloth that I've been using for a year, and it's brand new."
"I came across an extremely large book in the waiting room. My 3-year-old daughter is for scale."
