TV network buys children’s “pop quiz” to plug new show

Channel One executives once again make a joke of their “news” show by selling a whole “non-commercial” segment of their program to the Cartoon Network to promote their new TV show called Level Up. Selling their Pop Quiz to advertisers is nothing new for Channel One. This is a deceptive practice because the ad doesn’t appear in the regular form of a commercial and it violates Channel One’s contractual promise to limit daily advertising to no more than two minutes.

[STORY SUBJECT TO CHANGE]

{LEVEL UP CAST}

IN OUR NEW SHOW LEVEL UP – WE ACCIDENTALLY OPEN A WORMHOLE OR PORTAL FROM THIS WORLD TO A VIDEO GAME.

NOW SOME SCIENTISTS THINK WORMHOLES MIGHT BE REAL AND COULD EXIST ACCORDING TO THE THEORY OF RELATIVITY.

YOUR QUESTION IS:

WHO CAME UP WITH THE THEORY OF RELATIVITY:

WAS IT

A ISAAC NEWTON

B CHARLES DARWIN

C STEPHEN HAWKING

D ALBERT EINSTEIN

TAKE 10 SECONDS

OK TIMES UP THE ANSWER IS D ALBERT EINSTEIN. NOW CHANNEL ONE HAS THE REST OF THE FACTS.

THE THEORY OF RELATIVITY IN THE SIMPLEST TERMS SAYS THAT TIME AND SPACE ARE NOT ABSOLUTE – THEY ARE RELATIVE. MEANING THAT TIME AND SPACE CAN CHANGE DEPENDING ON YOUR FRAME OF REFERENCE.

FOR EXAMPLE. YOU MIGHT BE STANDING STILL.RELATIVE TO THE EARTH. BUT IF YOU LOOK AT YOURSELF “RELATIVE” TO THE SOLAR SYSTEM, YOU’RE ACTUALLY MOVING BECAUSE THE EARTH IS MOVING.

THAT’S A PRETTY SIMPLE EXPLANATION FOR WHAT IS REALLY A COMPLEX THEORY. AND THE THEORY OF RELATIVITY

IS BEING USED TO EXPLAIN THINGS LIKE BLACK HOLES, WORMHOLES, AND YES EVEN THE POSSIBILITY OF TIME TRAVEL.
