Science Faux Pas Example #2: V = MA

OK.  This is far and away my favorite Science Faux Pas I have seen.  I cut this out of some magazine many years ago and posted it on my door in college, grad. school and in my previous job, so it is a little beat up.  But you got to hand it to Mathey-Tissot - promoting a precision watch with "Velocity equals mass x acceleration (V = MA)." Must be one heck of an interesting mechanism inside that watch. 


  1. Ads are for the mechanism(s) inside heads, not products.

    Stay on groovin' safari,

  2. Hahah, that's a weird interpretation of Newton's second law of motion, indeed. Très faux ce pas!
