Choreographer's notes:

The title refers to a physics joke about combining theory and practice, and it alludes to the broken heys in this dance.
Teaching notes:
* In the promenade across in A2, end facing the couple that was on the left.
* In the long lines in B2, be sure to face those neighbors you just swung. The hey is with them, but the new neighbors are on the right diagonal.
* Out of each ricochet hey, everyone is looking for someone outside the foursome they were doing the hey with.
