  1. I played dodgeball too!

  2. The reason why you get shocked more in the winter is because everyone has their heaters on which draws the moisture out of the air which causes the charges to build up and cling to us more since there is less moisture in the air.

  3. So are you saying that in one of these dimensions you're actually good at super Mario??. Fascinating stuff Jake, and don't go putting your cats in radioactive boxes, alright big guy?

  4. Jelliott, I can really relate to your analogies. I too wish to become a beautiful butterfly, to grow and grow until I burst with knowledge. although I find some of your post humorous as intended, I think you struck on very important ideas. I think hard problems can be torture but on the other hand, that makes them that much more rewarding when completed.

  8. Kind of like a donut -- it's hard to tell the beginning and end. Well, unless you eat it, and the first bite is the beginning, and the crumbs are the sad end.

  10. Starting to go off the rails a bit again... if you haven't been giving best effort, do so. Kick yourself in the fanny and get on with it. And if you have, be proud of what you've done and continue on. Regrets disappear when you give it your all. So get to it!

  13. Interesting! I might start working on my squat landings to prepare for any unexpected fall in the future. Also, this sucks when playing video games and you slip and end up falling to your doom.

  14. Whenever I see saw waves I cant help but think of the synth pioneers and how much the synth has affected music since the early 70's. It's a truly unnatural sound. If you ever wish to check out another example of the "futuristic/robotic" sound you were describing in action, check out the original Blade Runner OST.

  15. Thanks etracey99! Yea, that may be a good idea for the future... In the meantime, I will cover some other subjects because the last thing I want to be known on here as is the Pokémon density guy.

  17. Love this! My background is in microelectronic engineering, and I'm even in the middle of putting together a 2-hour workshop on microelectronics (presentation is in December) that will cover much of what you did over the summer. Great discipline, with TONS of fantastic jobs that are fun, challenging, and rewarding. We'll have to talk more...

  20. Back squats are my fave as well... but 405. Still amazed, though, even for a movement that looks so simple and like it just requires raw power -- just how much technique plays a role in hitting that personal high lift. I was capped in the 360 range until I adjusted my foot position and hand position just a tiny bit, then all of a sudden 400 was in reach. Applying the force at just the right spot to maximize your efforts is SOOOO important!

  23. Quinn - Sorry you experienced the more painful side of physics. Elastic and inelastic collisions are really interesting to think about, especially in terms of the sports that are played. When I go bowling this weekend, I am going to try to put them both to work for me!! Which do you think would be most important?

  24. Hi Isaac - I appreciate the connections between physics and dodgeball that you are making. I know that I have seen some pretty intense slow-motion, time-stop videos that demonstrate the collision impacts you describe. I found one embedded in this prezi - https://prezi.com/nn6xcsmrgdzx/the-physics-of-dodgeball/It is in the "Collision" portion. There are also interesting connections to your concept of absorbed forces to other sports, including baseball and NASCAR. One is in favor of the absorption -one not so much....

  25. Skydiving pretty interesting, but if my parachute didn't open, I would hope that I would have enough air resistance to slow me down enough to stay alive. I wonder how fast someone is actually falling before they pull the parachute.

  37. What an amazing post jelliott -- lots of great insight. Physics C is all about that logical process, and building your "arsenal" of problem-solving tools. And as strange as it may sound, don't let the calculus scare you. You have an amazing calculus teacher, and by the end of the year, you're going to actually prefer the problems that have calculus in them, you'll be so good at it. Calculus is just slopes and areas, things you've been doing for years -- the only real difference is the symbology looks a little different, kind of like reading a different language. Once you learn the languag

  43. I love how there can be so many perspectives to the same occurrence. For example, in the clip of the computer screen, the binary is the most basic level of code. The desktop is deciding whether or not to light up a pixel. In the middle, the perspective is from the developer of whatever is being shown on the screen. On the right, the end product is shown to the user of the computer, and that perspective is shown, and everything is happening simultaneously.
