Einstein and stuff...

Hey there, all you science-dudes and science-dudettes!! Welcome to the community I just invented!! *ish proud* D'ya like it?

Yeah anyway, I was just wondering (out of holiday boredom and sheer morbid curiosity) - would anybody please be able to explain to me the theory of relativity? One of my physics-studying friends recently told me that there's a situation where a car can be going at relativistic speeds into a garage, with the result that the car is inside the garage despite being longer than the garage itself.

Ickle biology-student me, I do not understand, although I really really do want to!!

So if somebody would please explain it to me in words of no more than two syllables, I would be very much obliged ^_^

And in return, I'd be happy to bore you all to death (not really) with a lecture about Mendel's punnet squares lol!
