WoP #4: Car Crashes

A couple days ago, I was waiting to be picked up (since I'm a seventeen year old chicken who still doesn't have his license), and I unfortunately almost witnessed a car accident. A child, maybe four or five years old, went to chase after a ball which went across the street, and the driver couldn't see him because there was a parked car in the way. I tense up because I'm about ready to bolt over and help the kid, but luckily the driver stops about a yard away from hitting the kid. He's one lucky

Wop #3: Terraria's Portal Gun

Terraria; one of my favorite games of all time. I've played through it more times than I can count, and have logged more hours into it than I care to admit. The game is a sandbox game full of crazy bosses and easter eggs. Needless to say, it tends to have its own spin on the laws of physics, but almost always these spins are based on real physical laws. One such way the game has fun with physics is with its reference to Valve's Portal series: the Portal Gun. The problem isn't that the gun a

WoP #2: Papyrus Broke More than a Window

Undertale… where do I even begin? To describe it simply, it’s a game which shows us that there are consequences to our actions, and attempts to show that there are other solutions in video games than violence. It’s one of the most amazingly funny and heart-wrenchingly emotional experiences you can get out of a 2D game. That being said, mostly for the rule of funny, the game tends to ignore the laws of physics.   One of the most blatant examples of this occurs during the game’s pacifist

WoP #1: Jelly Cat

So, I went to RIT for a college visit not too long ago, and they played the above (slightly goofy) video about creating perpetual (never ending) motion by combining two principles derived from urban legends. The first is that a cat, dropped from any height, will always land on its feet, and the second is that a piece of toast with jelly on it will always land jelly-side down. The video goes on to state that, by spreading jelly on a cat's back, the cat will be unable to land both on its legs and

Introduction

Hello, and welcome to the World of Physics. Considering this is my first post, I feel it necessary to describe myself a little. First and foremost, I'm a huge fan of gaming, so a majority of my posts will likely discuss their insane simulations of physics. In addition, I'm a Boy Scout, currently working towards my eagle rank. I'm great with technology, and took several classes in programming over the course of my high school career. In the future, I hope to study programming further, as well as
