    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.

    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

    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!

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

    Thrilled to have you aboard BrandyBoy... I think we'll be able to challenge you a bit this year, maybe the first serious academic challenge you'll face. When you hit that point (and most students do at some point in this class) -- keep in mind you have tons of fans rooting for you, and it's OK to struggle and fail. Failing is the first step to success, and learning how to fail productively is a terribly underestimated skill. Am I hearing the beginnings of some blog posts on how physics relates to boy scouts?

    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!

    That's definitely a mistake you only make once. One burnt foot is enough.

    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....

    NEATO! way to apply physics to one of your favorite hobbies

    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.

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

    It is so cute that you were able make a bunny be a story and example to physics. What was your inspiration for writing on this topic?

    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!

    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.

    Time travel is a very interesting (and highly debated) topic in physics. In the words of the doctor, "brilliant!"

    Wonder if I could do that with my kids. On dry land, of course!

    Interesting in how it works makes you wonder how far it will go before exploding from all the energy! Boom haha.

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

    i liked that you connected to physics with a sport! Usually people never think sports relate to science!

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