Why Calculating Moments is Important

The last frame is an exaggeration to add some humor, but also to make a point about why calculating moments is important.

Notice that the last frame has been faked to add a little humor but also to make a point about the importance of caculating moments. In the last frame there is a white boat that suddenly appears. There is also an orange cone that suddenly disappears.
I apologize for not recalling where I got these photos.
