Is inertia the truck driver's friend or foe?

The answer is: Yes!

First the classic. We love it, we know it, we rip it, we show it.

A couple of great clips, thanks! I think the second one especially could make for a great class discussion (have you done that?). One of the things I notice is that the concept of jerk (third time derivative) seem key to what's going on. Would that be necessary?

Hey! Quick question that's totally off topic. Do you know how to make your site mobile friendly? My site looks weird when browsing from my apple iphone. I'm trying to find a theme or plugin that might be able to correct this problem. If you have any recommendations, please share. Thanks!
