October 29th, two days to CANDY!!!

There was a great man of science who has appeared in our designated movie time for this lecture, and that man is Richard Feynman.  Now, normally I usually complain about these movie times, because they tend to be pretty terrible.  But for this case, I have no complaints.  I don't think I'll ever be able to complain about watching any video featuring Feynman.
This particular video happens to be Feynman's lecture called The Great Conservation Principles.

He introduces the ideas of general laws that govern physics, and delves into the laws of conservation of energy.  I won't go too much into detail as I highly recommend that everybody reading this takes a look at, well, any of Richard Feynman's videos.  They're all excellent, and all worth watching.

Unfortunately, back to our lecture...

For all those wondering, normal is 1atm at 25 degrees Celsius.  If you like your atms warmer or colder than that, your just crazy!

Hmm, for the record, if this seems a little shorter than other posts, it's likely because I'm falling asleep in my chair here.  Despite the infinitely interesting material of this class, I haven't quite caught up on my sleep for this week yet...

On a humorous note, Spiderman joined us for the Feynman!  As Halloween is Sunday, I'm actually a little surprised that Spidey is the only costumed feller in this lecture...

Anyways, end of lecture, more next monday!
