    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.

    I'm jealous. I remember when i had time to play some of these. Instead, last night's excitement include an episode of Sofia the First "The Emerald Key" -- some great dramatic tension at the end -- coupled with a trio of Elmo songs and reading two chapters of the third installment of the "Princess Tiara" book series.

    I never thought I'd have to say this, but I feel really excluded by all of the video gamers.

    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?

    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.

    Sweet blog post. If you wouldn't mind spreading the love and also buying your two student teachers silver Porsches, we wouldn't complain

    Yay coat hanger! I hope you don't mind, I posted on this topic too but cited your blogpost in it. Nice work here

    Glad to hear you were able to get that coathanger bent and see the continuous shape that the solenoid makes with the soap bubbles!

    Close, but as the angle in radians approaches zero, cosine of the angle won't approach zero... it should approach 1.

    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!

    It's been a few years since I last did this, but I bet my little girls would love going on a geocaching "treasure hunt." Great reminder!

    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?

    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....

    I absolutely loved reading this -- not only for the awesomeness that is our universe, but that awesomeness that is your enthusiasm. Great post!

    I love Disney! that was such a creative idea to pull in something so fun and relate it to physics.

    The first time I drove on the highway i was kind of scared too Hannah but yah driving has a lot of physics.

    Great post! And to add some trivia, Zooey Deschanel also sings two songs, including the title track, in the recently released Winnie The Pooh movie!

    nice blog. love your name. I suspose the biologists would argue that life isn't physics but if not physics, it is ruled by physics! jk

    I love how you look at something you enjoy through the lens of physics. We'll be getting into objects tossed up and down starting early next week!

    I see that you like to disc golf? that sounds very interesting to Shabba. Shabba would like to hear the physics behind, how you say, disc golf.

    I always wondered why the beaches here and some other beaches get so hot, while others stay nice and cold. I never realized that it was what makes up the sand that causes it to get so hot.

    Very well done! Physics everywhere in volleyball. The video looks like a lot of fun -- we should make our own.

    Great idea, and very well executed. Goes right along with what we're learning about the electromagnetic spectrum.
