Sunset? Or Sunrise?


100 bucks to anyone who can point out if this is the start of a new day or the end of an old one. Im struggling to understand it myself. Funny thing is when I google for sunset, the pics look no different from when I google for sunrise. I love metaphors, don't you?

unpredictable said...

btw was tht post abt life being a monochrovic discontinuity fm u?

bobby said...

yeah...sorry abt it...it was for fun and totally contentless

unpredictable said...

Its ok abt the meaningless discontinuity .. jus wanted to know who it was .. have been bugging co workers asking if it was them ...

btw .... why is it a sunset? u havent answered?

bobby said...

well from the pic , it seems that the angle the sun is making with the sea is less than 5 degrees...at that angle the sky would be more uniformly reddish, were it a surise...so thats why i think its a sunset...but am i right?

unpredictable said...

dont know if right or wrong .. ur certainly mathematical :)

bobby said...

so what happens to the 100 bucks?..do i get it or not?? :)

unpredictable said...

Next time i visit ur campus in madras ill pass the money on to Nutan .. :)

bobby said...

yeah well...except that i'm in mumbai not in madras....anyways i dont deserve the money actually...coz the explanation i gave makes as much sense as my previous comments on mohorovic discontinuity :)
.....the real reason as to how i know that its a sunset is that the pic can be found on google images..by typing sunset....maybe u got it from the same source !!
