Here comes the Young's Modulus, with its buddy, the Ultimate Strength. If you load a drill pipe beyond its Ultimate Strength, sooner or later the pipe snaps and whacks you – in the head. So your bloody ‘protective’ hard-hat finds its way into your ‘protective’ steel-caps boots. You can mumble magic spells, or pray to the God of All Drill Pipes, or take a proper grip on your favorite semi-automatic. The law-respecting Wicked Flying Pipe does not care less. By law, it must whack. The Law of Physics, you know? As for my genre, it must be… Not-So-Alternative-History.
What am I about? Ah, so those Laws of Physics, damn it! The Law of Conservation of Energy, AKA The First Principle of Thermodynamics. Have you studied it at school long time ago? Forgotten? Never heard? Too bad. This very Law is playing a cruel practical joke with all the inhabitants of the planet Earth, including you, Dear Reader! A joke so practical and so cruel, the Wicked Flying Pipe from the previous paragraph looks a harmless schoolyard prank. Intrigued?
