Ha, I also had a Vega that smelled like tuna. Never should have forgotten that sandwich in the glove compartment.

1. Bufford Pusser: 2. Chesty Puller
Poll: What is your favorite sleeping position?


I hate the chesty puller because I like sleeping on my back, so I'll vote for the Bufford Pusser even though I don't know what that is.

How do you use math as an adult?
Holy craaaaap! It's official, imma do this crazy thing! (Purple Is Moving!)


Purple wants to move from Dallas-Fort Worth, Texas, to Grand Rapids, Michigan, a distance of 1,100 miles. If she averages 50 miles per hour, how long will it take her to drive the distance? Purple's car gets 30 miles per gallon of gas. How many gallons of gas will she use on her trip? Gasoline costs $2.05 in Dallas and $2.35 in Grand Rapids. Averaging those prices, how much will Purple spend in gasoline on her trip? Purple needs entertainment on her drive, so she decides to have fun calculating the coefficient of lift for a Boeing 747 using the equation Cl = 2L ų (r ◊ V2 ◊ A), where L is the lift, r is the density, V is the velocity and A is the wing area. Given that a 747 generates 637,190 pounds of lift when the air density is 0.00058735 slug/ft3 at 40,000 feet, its velocity is 871 ft/s, and the reference area is 5,500 ft2, what is the coefficient of lift Purple calculates?

Yellow is OK, other colors are problematic.

Would you ever use "we" in the sense of "my partner and I" without having first stated you had one?

No, that was Mussolini. Winston Churchill's baby name was Scone, but later his detractors referred to him as the "English muffin".
