Whew,
It's hot...
You're a real piece of
work, using a student
as a personal servant
to go and buy you a
popsicle.
Whew
hey, You also
bought yourself
monaka with my
money, didn't you!
anyway, don't complain
when I'm teaching you fr
of charge! And you tk
your time, Mr.Turtle!
How can YOU talk
that way to your
student...
I gue it's OKay
since I was able to
get my own snack...
It's geing hoer
outside.
That's right.
Speaking of turtles,
you know the story
of Urishama Taro,
don'tyou?
Huh?
I know that...
Urashima Taro is a guy
who rescued a turtle
and went to the Palace
of the Dragon God
under the sea.
When he returned
home after playing
there for a few days,
he found that several
hundred years had
paed on land, right?
Stop!

Do you realize
that there is an
explanation
for what haened
to Urashima Taro
that involves

at a spd close to the
spd of light, time is said
to slow down.
soyI thought
you had a fever
because of the
heat.
If you touch me
again, I' hit you
with my right fist
instead.
Now that you
mention it, it sms
that I heard about
time dilation in
the overview of
relativity theory...
...I think.
