Sunday funnies

More baseball science: the atomic pitch.


Something always gets lost in translation: "31 Bizarre Foreign Titles for American Movies".

Exercise: it can kill you (H/T: Captain Heinrichs).

Re: Atomic pitch
Collisions with the air have eaten the ball away almost completely, and it is now a bullet-shaped cloud of expanding plasma.

Official Baseball Rules:
8.02 The pitcher shall not—
(5) deface the ball in any manner;

PENALTY: For violation of any part of Rules 8.02 (a)(2) through (6):
(a) The pitcher shall be ejected immediately from the game and shall be suspended automatically.

Altho, in this case, the point could be deemed moot.

I think the ejection and suspension would be automatic and permanent.

And instant.

Thanks, Mr. Paco Sir, I've discovered a whole list of fun new links off this post.

The baseball physics lesson was great. Now I know what will happen to me in case some Serbian or Bosnian or Any Other Terrorist decides to nuke WPAFB because they didn't like the Dayton Accords. Useful information.

I especially liked the astronaut and the gorilla.

We used to own a treadmill. We wore it out, and had to buy an elliptical instead. Those people are idiots.

Yes. B.O. stinks.

Rebecca: I particularly liked this one - "The Sixth Sense – He’s a Ghost!"

Talk about a title with a built-in spoiler!

Paco: I know! I wonder if any Chinese audiences asked for their money back?
