  • How do you get to the end of a rainbow?

    The title is the question. This is not a submission for mystical wismy, but it is rather an inquiry into physical fact. Click image for larger version  Name:	250px-WhereRainbowRises.jpg Views:	1 Size:	36.4 KB ID:	74591

        You can only get to the end of your rainbow. More specifically you must know where stand, when to stand, and what time stand. YOUR rainbow is the same as E=MC2.

            Sounds like fiction to me.

              Let's relax the metaphores. Understanding rainbows a little better is like understanding the rest of the poem a little better. It only helps. Think about it, or as Carin Bondar sings in the attached inspiration, "Everybody read up!"

                  You have asked a very good question. The real answer is that there is no end at all since all rainbows either at a water fall in Hawaii, when the wind comes right behind the rain in Oklahoma or in your backyard while watering your petunia are full circles. I've seen 360 degree rainbows while flying. What we perceive as the ends is where the circle is cut off by the background.

                  But I am a bit of a romantic, so allow me to ask you Strawshadow, which end of the rainbow would you like to go with me to?

                    Silly me, I thought it took a #8 Blue dun, proof I’m missing the tail end.

                      Good one. It's a shame your audience isn't larger for stuff like this.

                        In the sky, not in the water. There are only two ways to get to the end if a rainbow. What are they?

                          It’s a darn good thing it isn’t.

                            Fly through it or crash into it.
