You are responding to the wrong person. But I expect that.
I just took a long weekend and was within 45 minutes driving distance (no train) of the happiest place on earth: Disneyland. I passed on the opportunity and instead read a book about dead philosophers. I also drank beer out of a glass that was properly chilled in the freezer to a high standard of entropy. Peace and tranquility reigned the entire weekend. No necessity for alternating my normal breathing patterns, which my medulla regulates in fine fashion.
And entropy by the way is a measureable definite quantity given in energy units (usually Joules)/Temperature (usually Kelvin scale) - Or Joules/Mole Kelvin if evaluating chemical reactions. Entropy is also a state function – an important concept and often misunderstood and/or misapplied by the layman.
Most people should stay away from any intended rational discussion of entropy or from interjecting the concept into dinner conversations or causal discussions. People just make themselves look ridiculous. Drinking beer would be a more valuable use of their time and they may even look less ridiculous as a consequence. But I could be wrong.
