The Physics Of Casper The Friendly Ghost Is Confusing The Hell Out Of Everyone

THIS DOESN'T MAKE ANY DAMN SENSE.

Posted on

Sometimes the Internet is a great place for scientific debates, like this very important question from writer Daniel Kibblesmith:

CAN SOMEONE PLEASE EXPLAIN TO ME THE PHYSICS OF CASPER

Let's take a closer look at this. Sometimes Casper is completely solid and can use his body as a literal umbrella:

But at other inconvenient times he is completely porous, which is unfortunate when he is on the golf course...

Or when he's entering a snowy cabin...

Or, you know, when POTTED PLANTS ARE FALLING FROM THE SKY.

To sum it up: It makes zero sense.

Someone suggested that Casper can shift between states of solidity:

@kibblesmith @toomuchnick He has an ectoplasmic membrane of variable solidity you oaf, you clown, you uneducated buffoon

But there's a slight problem with that theory...

The truth is, there is no real answer yet and it's a question that physicists are struggling with to this day.

@kibblesmith Hi Daniel, Just speaking as a physicist: I wish. Harvey Comics ectokinematics is pretty much the holy grail in our field.

Plus, there are even bigger Casper mysteries we need solved first...

Besides, Casper doesn't have time for this shit.
