Last season I thought Defiance was okay, worth continuing to watch, but not great. This season, however, they seem to have unlocked whatever it is that makes this show really tick. Markedly improved, and someone remembered Julie Benz can act rather than just look good. But all of the actors have been giving better performances.

Because of the weight of the ends of the forks, and how they’re distributed behind the penny (closer to the glass), the center of gravity of the whole system is actually shifted quite significantly. If I’m right, it would actually have to be right where the penny meets the glass. This mean, in a sense, all the “weight” of the system of the forks and penny is resting right on that point, rather than out in the air, so if you balance it, it’ll be stable on the glass.
SCIENCE.


…….Close enough

The difference between Science and Engineering.

Brilliant

Republicans are scary but republicans under the age of 20 are even scarier

Yeah liberals are terrified of educated youth

did your dad tell you that

fox news says he’s not brainwashed so it must be true

I don’t see much difference between Young Republicans and Hitler Youth.

I love that last line.

Can’t Buy Me Love

The Beatles established four records on the Billboard Hot 100 with “Can’t Buy Me Love” at number one:

  1. Until Billboard began using SoundScan for their charts in 1991, it had the biggest jump to number one: (number twenty-seven to number one; no other single had ever done this).
  2. It gave the Beatles three consecutive number-one songs (“I Want to Hold Your Hand" was replaced at number one by "She Loves You" which was in turn replaced by "Can’t Buy Me Love"). The three songs spent a combined total of 14 consecutive weeks at No. 1. This was the first time an artist had three number ones in a row. The best prior was Elvis, who had two consecutive number ones with Don’t Be Cruel & Love Me Tender.[15]
  3. When “Can’t Buy Me Love” went to number one (4 April 1964), the entire top five of the Hot 100 was by the Beatles, the next positions being filled by “Twist and Shout”, “She Loves You”, “I Want to Hold Your Hand" and "Please Please Me,” respectively. No other act has held the top five spots simultaneously.
  4. During its second week at number one (11 April 1964), the Beatles had fourteen songs on the Hot 100 at the same time.

So, they held 14% of the top 100 at one point, and the top FIVE most popular songs in the country. While obviously this sort of thing would be impossible today (it wasn’t terribly probable then, either), it helps to explain why the Beatles remain popular a half-century on. I don’t know that Beatlemania could ever be rationally explained, but it’s still fun to watch/listen to/experience.
