For Procrastinators and Snow Lovers



For the procrastinators: During these times of high stress, what with the trillions of calc problems to do and a 75 minute webassign I am looking forward to, I think it is a given that we teens spend a bit of time on the internet procrastinating. During my quite small amount of time spent on the internet today, I managed to find 2 videos relating to our studies in physics. This first clip, found at http://iwastesomuchtime.com/on/?i=20086 is for those who tend to enjoy cat videos. I thought this next video, http://iwastesomuchtime.com/on/?i=19985 was quite interesting. I think it would be very funny to try and set something as complicated as this rube goldberg device up to complete a simple task, such as turning the page of the newspaper. By the way, i do not procrastinate as much as one might think based on the title of that website :star:

On a side note, for snow lovers: I attempted to explain how projectile motion works during a snowball fight I had with the kids I babysit on Friday afternoon. Considering that they are all under the age of 10, I think it went pretty well. I found myself in a bit of a pickle because I was apparently "ruining" their fort by standing on a snow bank in order to throw farther. I has to explain to them why I was standing on higher ground, although they just continued to pelt me with snow :snowman: All in all, it was exciting, physics filled fun!
