### How Micheal Jordan Jumps so high

That's an initial velocity from a jump.  Usain Bolt is looking at his whole body running where 12.27 m/s is a sustained speed.

### Eternal Recurrence

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.

### School Has Ruined Me

I really think you need a bowl of ice cream.  With rainbow sprinkles.  Perspective, HegelBot, perspective...

### KSP for Dummies - Lesson 1: The Interface

I think this tutorial nets your team a bonus \$7.5K.

### Happy Birthday!

Happy birthday to Mr. Gauss!!!

### Physics Followed Me to London!

It is the study of everything...

### I am bad student (Yeet)

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!

### Physics Blogs, what happened? (please forgive me, i mean well)

Absolutely.  Or write about what would happen if instead of a sphere, Earth was a disc.  Or a ring (Discworld, anyone?)  Figure out the thermodynamics of a Harry Potter spell, or the acceleration of Ironman in a Marvel movie.  Make it fun.

### People Never Believed The Earth Was Flat, Until Now

My goodness, not sure where to begin here HegelBot153...  laughing over the blatant shilling for the APC Companion.

### Triboelectric effect; what you need to know and why you should care.

Nice post HegelBot153.  If you wear flannel pajamas and have flannel sheets, rolling over under the covers can be an 'enlightening' experience as well!

I sent the WebAssign folks this blog post.  Haven't heard anything back to date...

### Medical Physics

Great job finding applications of physics concepts to the wider world!

### How a Rock and a Hyperdrive Could Defeat the Empire and the First Order

I'm still trying to figure out why, if they could take out the death star with the ramming/light speed maneuver, wouldn't you have done that with the FIRST ship to run out of fuel?

### A Quarter in Review (The Sequel)

You're more than halfway there... keep up the good work!

### The New Year's Eve Ball "Drop"

I agree... would be much more exciting if it actually dropped in free fall!

### The Small Angle Approximation

Would you like it to?

### Someone needs to stop Neil deGrass Tyson

Wow, we're in agreement on something!!!  I think Dr. Tyson does some wonderful things, but also believe there's further opportunity for respecting and leaving room for the thoughts of others.  Which I imagine he does internally, though at times his external image seems to cling more strongly to the black-and-white (which is part of being an entertainer).

### The Small Angle Approximation

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

### Falling Penny vs. Falling Pen

And THIS is why I avoid New York City...

### The Wonders of Time Dilation

Fantastic blog post, and a great start on understanding some of the conceptual ideas around time dilation!

### Do billiard balls hurt?

Full contact billiards... cool!
