Watch this. It's amazing.

This video brought to you by Stumble Upon, quite possibly the most potent and dangerous slacker tool every conceived by man.

In Case You Were Wondering...

The probability that a human being being of mass 65 kg jumping with a velocity of 4 m/s could make it all the way to Jupiter is roughly 10^(-9*10^51) or

1 / 10^9000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000.

Yay for Modern Physics class!

A fine evening of model productivity from the Dry Suite.

The Dawn of a New Era

It just dawned on me that there are no Korean embassies in South Korea. Isn't that crazy?

Maniacal Laughter

My analyst told me
That I was right out of my head.
The way that he put it
Was that I'd be better off dead.
But I knew- I knew-
I knew I
was a GENIUS!

For behold! I have taken apart a DC electric motor, tinkered with the wiring, put it back together, and it is now a fully functional AC generator. This is so much more fun than homework.

I am a nerd. If you want proof of this, the orb in the upper right-hand corner of our group picture is a paper model of a complex polyhedra that I constructed for fun. It is an intersection of a Snub Dodecahedron (in blue) and a Pentagonal Hexecontahedron (in gray).
I started off majoring in Mechanical Engineering (because I like math and physics), but lately I have been re-thinking this. I would really like to major in Mechanical Engineering, Electrical Engineering, Mathematics, and Theoretical Physics, but this just isn't sane or possible. So for now I'm settling for dual majoring as an ME and EE, with the possibility of pursuing a math or physics degree in grad school.

The joy that I got from re-working this motor serves to confirm my choice to add Electrical Engineering to my course load. And so, Dozer, there no longer remains any question of whether or not I am ready for my future.
The true question is:

Is the future ready for me?

Digital Project

These are a few pictures of the project I had to do for Digital Electronics. There are 8 logic chips, 2 seven-segment LEDs, 8 regular LEDs, and I don't know how many wires. I was up all night last Thursday working on it, but I guess not sleeping paid off 'cause I got a A on the project. Please enjoy the pics. And to you, Grey, I give you your future!
