PHYSICIST USES MATH TO GET OUT OF SPEEDING TICKET!
[link to www.theblaze.com]

University of California-Davis physicist Dmitri Krioukov was pulled over and issued a ticket for running a stop sign. While many wouldn’t go through the hassle of actually fighting this ticket in court, Krioukov is an exception — and he came prepared. io9 reports that he presented a mathematical paper to prove his innocence, aptly named “The Proof of Innocence,” and convinced the judge of his case.

Here‘s the paper’s abstract:

We show that if a car stops at a stop sign, an observer, e.g., a police officer, located at a certain distance perpendicular to the car trajectory, must have an illusion that the car does not stop, if the following three conditions are satisfied: (1) the observer measures not the linear but angular speed of the car; (2) the car decelerates and subsequently accelerates relatively fast; and (3) there is a short-time obstruction of the observer’s view of the car by an external object, e.g., another car, at the moment when both cars are near the stop sign.

check out the rest at the link. who says advanced math doesn't apply in real life!

He confused them so much, they couldn't find him guilty because they simply could just not comprehend wtf he was on about.
