Today's word is force and I could have taken this in a million directions but I had fun yesterday with Archimedes so while yesterday's other word was eureka, today's other word is ouch.  Sir Isaac Newton probably said it after an apple dropped on his head causing him to reflect on gravity.  Newton figured out how to relate motion and acceleration with force and came up with a series of laws.  They pretty much explain how the mechanical universe operates.

Here they are with some practical applications.


Physics talk with fandom examples….. )

Warm wishes to anyone commemorating Anzac Day, a day of remembrance for those in Australia and New Zealand.  The only bits I know about the actual WWI events that this day initially remembered came from a song by Eric Bogle, And the Band Played Waltzing Matilda.   Sometimes it's played in the US around Memorial Day by radio shows featuring folk music.  You can watch Eric sing it in concert here.  It's been covered by lots of folks including the Pogues.

With the Easter holiday, I haven't been able comment about the last couple episodes of SPN.  I've liked them both. They've been a good mix of funny and advancing the plot.

Cut for SPN spoilers )

With the Easter holiday, I had the Kid about the house a bit more.  We saw a Master and Commander video by [info]swiss_kun using the Numa Numa song.  The Kid has insisted upon repeated viewings and now I have this stuck in my head.  In a list of related videos, we found a fan vid for the same movie using the Discovery Channel's Boom De Yada ad song.  Between these two of lovely tunes, I will be looney by this evening, if not already.  In case you'd like to tread the same path....

Although this is the Saint's Feast Day and is due some solemnity, here in the US it is also celebrated by drinking green beer, eating corned beef and cabbage, and listening to Celtic music.  Somewhere back a ways in my family tree, there are folks who made the ocean voyage from Ireland to America. In honor of Ireland and Irish heritage, here's some Irish things that make me happy.

Music, art and cool characters under the cut.. )
