## There is a Gender Pay Gap Fact

The gender pay gap is real. Even after all reasonable differences are factored out, an explained pay gap between men and women exists across the board.

Time is a measure of intervals between events. Time differs depending on frame of reference, but if we use light as a measure of time we get a universal speed at which things happen.

The more time and energy you put into something, the more you value it. This Escalation of Commitment phenomenon (or commitment bias) relates to a number of other decision making biases.

The “10,000 hours theory”, that it takes roughly 10,000 hours of deliberate practice to become an “outlier”, is a useful concept, but not an exact rule.

Einstein’s mass-energy equivalence equation (E=mc2) shows that mass and energy are equivalent (but not “exactly the same”) properties of a physical system.

Watches are typically, but not always, set to 10:10 (or close) in advertisements. This is mostly for aesthetic reasons and simplicity.

Time is relative to speed and gravity (time dilation), and so is space (length contraction). Light speed is constant for all observers, so time and space can’t be.

At sea, a typical U.S. submarine day is 18 hours long, not 24. Crews are separated into 3 different watch sections with 6 hours on watch and 12 off.
