1. ## WHY BATMAN SHOULD BE DEAD!!!!(MUST SEE)

Batman should be dead. Rate 5 stars and I'll tell you why. I'm waiting.... Okay cool thanks. Just kidding. It's because of his cape! Do you really think batman would be able to survive a leap off of a skyscraper? Let's find out. A group of students from the University of Leicester did an actual experiment using mathematical simulations. They give a wingspan estimate of 15 feet. An average skyscraper is 492 feet high. When an electrical charge is sent through batman's cape in Batman Begins, it turns into a rigid glider. It was calculated that he would travel a total distance of 1,148 feet. That's cool and all, but how would he land? What speed would he reach? The students calculated that he'd reach a top speed of 68 mph, and land at 50 mph. If you think he'll be okay, the students reason that you should "consider impact with a car traveling at these speeds." New movie idea: Batman is the new Flat Stanley.
2. ## HOW DO AIRCRAFT CARRIERS STAY AFLOAT??(INSANE)

This massive Navy rig is typically 1000 ft long by 300 ft wide, weighing in at 100,000 tons! How in the world does it stay afloat? Good question, lets learn. First things first. The process used to keep an object afloat is displacement. The hull, or bottom of this large ship is designed to displace a volume of water that weighs more than the entire ship itself. How? Even though the carrier is made with heavy things, it's like a enormous iron, steel, and cement balloon. There is enough air inside of the aircraft carrier that it weighs less than a similar volume of water, causing it to stay afloat. Air and open space is the key to buoyancy. Who knew such a mind bending object could be explained with simple physics? Thanks for tuning in!
3. ## Second Quarter

Why does it seem like the first half of the year literally flew by so fast?
4. ## Quarter 2

I haven't heard from any of my colleges yet
5. ## "Semester Review"

Yeah I agree, math comes to me a whole lot easier than physics does, which is what makes physics frustratingly fun!

7. ## Physics Behind a Fly Fishing Cast

I've never tried this before but all the sudden I have a very strong urge to...
8. ## Why do Bananas Have a Curve?

Survival of the fittest- banana version. Love me some bananas!
9. ## Green

My even more favorite color now for these very reasons!
10. ## The Slow Mo Guys

I think I've watched every video they've made. Glad to find a fellow SlowMoGuys-watcher!
11. ## End of Second Quarter Reflection

I relate 100%. Getting better but not there yet.
12. ## (EPIC)FIRST SEMESTER REVIEW!!!!!(GONE WRONG)

This class has shown me multiple times that I'm not doing enough preparation or work to succeed. It's no ordinary class where if you just put minimal effort in you will be crushed. I've learned that the hard way. I've never been more thankful for grade buffers like web assign or these blog posts, and even then I'm still procrastinating. However, one must fail in order to succeed. I strongly believe that applies to me right now. I didn't put the effort in first semester and was surprised that the class actually beat me to a pulp instead of cruising along senior year. But I've now learned from my mistakes. Stick to the schedule, put the work in, don't make up excuses to procrastinate. I'm motivated to step it up a notch and end off the second half of the year with a bang.
