Burning and Physics

This Mac and Memorex DVD+R DL don't play well together. Physics and I don't play well together either.

Markup Validation

I would like to make this page W3C compliant, but it's going to be pain, seeing as how I currently have 173 errors. For now, though, I'm satisfied with just testing the page in Firefox and IE. And in order to do so, I need to find a good program that can emulate Windows applications on my Mac without having to install the Windows OS. I've thought about using CodeWeavers' Crossover, but I've heard some bad things about it.

Youtube

Can't say it's my most preferred site for streaming videos, but gosh darn it, Youtube flame wars are the best! Nothing makes my day more than reading the comments of a couple overexcited middle schoolers who think that the use of profanity makes them sound more mature, as if mixing up "their" with "they're" and tYpInG lIkE tHiS didn't already give them away. It's great.

Crayon Physics Deluxe

Crayon Physics Deluxe

This is exactly the kind of thing we need in our physics curriculum.

Anyhow, Petri Purho (Kloonigames) thinks up some crazy, pardon my slang, games! His work ethic's admirable, too.

-say no to genetically enhanced fruits/vegetables
-being conservative; use only what you have to, reuse what you can, recycle everything else (lessen your footprint)
-get involved and stay informed
-take public transportation or bike/walk
-problem with construction of buildings, common objects, etc.
-overconsumption
-problem with consumerist society

More stuff online:

-"tree hugging dirt worshipper"
-"put the fun between your legs" (bicycle)
-"pray in the dirt"
-"making a difference"
-"when we tug on a single thing in nature we find it attached to everything else." john muir (web?)
-"everything is connected" (polar bear) ...it's interesting how we worry so much about the polar bears, yet worry so little about our own situation
-"pledge allegiance"
