You might be a physics geek if...

...you calculate how fast you'd have to be going when you hit that cross street in order to launch yourself all the way to Alcatraz Island (near top of picture).

...if you calculate it as a percentage of the speed of light, forget the "might" part.

That’s a hell of a speed bump there Harvey. I don’t see making it to Alcatraz though. It’s a pretty shallow angle so you better be movin’ pretty fast. I’m talking space shuttle fast. After hitting the bump my guess is you’d create one hell of a debris field across San Francisco and the bay. I advise sitting on top of the cable car. You might get lucky.
