  • While You Wait quotes

    I noticed a mistake in one:

    It is not that polar co-ordinates are complicated, it is simply
    that cartesian co-ordinates are simpler than they have a right to be.
    -- Kleppner & Kolenhow, "An Introduction to Mechanics"
    It's actually Kleppner & Kolenkow

    Memories... I used that book for freshman physics.

    people actually read those?

    Actually I sometimes do. Some of them are decent, some are lame and I have no idea what the mean.

        Physics is the best subject.

                I remember that book too.

                Did you ever do the problem about Russian paratroopers being dropped in bales of hay due to parachute shortages during WWII?

                    90% of the quotes are pointless, 9% of them are too long to be read in time, and the last 1% might be funny

                    This space is empty... or is it?

                      I think all quotes should be quotes by me. That should keep things interesting.

                          I never get the opportunity to read the quotes, or even to click on pause. That's the misery you get with broadband.

                              I know, I sometimes to that but then it turns out it wasn't worth the effort.
