This section started as a mishmash of optional or additional things loosely related to topics in Physics 16, Amherst's introductory mechanics course.  It seems to be outgrowing that association, but you will still find references to class material.

These posts are intended to be amusing or interesting rather than informative.  Though I grant myself a modest license to hyperbole, please bring errors to my attention through one of my official channels of communication.
