Re: Beijing Olympics

It was indeed an amazing race! Most of the teams were at least half if not a full body length in front of the [old] world record That may have been the sickest finish I've ever seen. Amazing last leg by Lezak, 46.00 for a 100m relay swim is nuts. Not only that, the Canadian team was SIXTH and they ...

Re: Brag to me and I shall listen

I'm sure everyone's already seen the Super Mario Brothers 3 speedrun where the guy beats it in 11 minutes (and yes, I know it's fake). After seeing that, it rekindled my interest in the game, and I got pretty close to being able to duplicate what's seen in the video, though I never timed myself. I ...

Re: Can light be bent?

I have always been told that light does not bend, but what if the light travelled from a high density material to a lower density one, over a spread of space. For example from hot air to cold air, where the air in between is increasingly hotter towards the hot side and thus lower pressure. This wou...

Re: What degree have/are/will you studied/studying/study.

Wrapping up a B.Sc. in Physics, at the University of Waterloo this fall/winter. Thinking about tacking on an Astrophysics specialization, provided I can survive a second attempt at General Relativity this winter. Afterwards, the only definite plan is moving up to a B.Ed., though where it will be fro...
