A car has frozen over, covered with .05 inch of ice. Assuming that the driver gets into the car and starts the car up, warming the car up to a constant temperature of 85 degrees F, how long does it takes for the ice to melt off the top of the car. Assume that there is 1/16 inch of #4 Insulation (OK, I'm totally making this part up) connected to the roof and that the roof is composed of 1/8 inch of hardened steel.

How long would it take if the temperature increased linearly from 30 degrees F at ignition to 85 degrees F within 5 minutes?

(This silliness brought to you by a frozen car and a diseased mind. Though I've gotta think there has to be a way to solve this problem.)

Another Halloween Night. Another Gorefest (tm) Halloween Party. But this year is different. Someone's invited a madman along and he's a real cut-up. Now Billy, Bobby, Marie and Sue are all caught inside the tangled web of the Chainsaw Murderer Who Bears Absolutely No Resemblance To Jason. Will they survive the night or will they, too, fall victim to the ancient evil residing inside that old Warehouse?

Haunted Dancefloor of Death.
Ever Dance with the Devil in the Pale Moonlight?

... I'll have to play with this some. It seems more lame than silly but cool.

From a conversation I just had with Srivansa.

Where's John? At the ASFPM... conference?
I keep trying to saying concert and I don't know why, because I don't want to hear engineers singing.
I mean, really, what would we sing about? The stress on a tensor field due to two dimensional gravity flow along a concrete channel?

I've got the stress, baby.
Because this friction's killin' meeeee....

I should not be allowed to breed, man. I scare even me, sometimes!

Edit: If you don't get it, it's really bad geek humor and probably not even exactly correct (Friction is a force, of sorts, and would, therefore, cause stress... but one typically discusses stress based on a force applied upon an object, not a counterforce...
.... I couldn't think of anything else to fit in a crappy blues song ;)

... Man.. geeks should not be allowed to have senses of humor. THIS is what happens. THIS HERE.

So today, I just started a case in St. Louis County, Missouri.

On the Meramec River.

Now my question is.. my question is..
Is Meramec's"Mouth"er (the Mouth of Meramac, in Missouri) trying to get Meramec to carry me?
That is.. is Meramec's "Mouth"er making the Meramec carry me.
Or am I up another creek without a paddle ;)

"Why didn't you keep your fuckin' mouth closed?"
"I was just saying... she's one fucked up bitch."
Johnny and Billy looked down at the cold dead eyes, the cold dead hungry eyes. Luckily, there was a iron fence between them and the rabbits.
"Bunnies. Fuckin' bunnies, man."
"Told you she was batshit. Fuckin' vampiric bunnies."
"Oh, shut the fuck up already!"
"Told you it was a fuckin' bad idea... trying to sleep with that bitch. Told you there was something wrong with her!"
"Stop being suck a fucking cu... uhm... turn around, Johnny." Billy poked him from behind,
"What? What's up?" Johnny turned around.
Squirrels. Fuckin' vampiric squirrels.
"Jesus fuckin' christ, that girl was batshit." Johnny muttered once more before pulling out his stakes.

If your pet had a livejournal, what would he or she do with it? What would he or she post about?

I have a question!

Professor Trivial, wherever you may be.

If you put the lime in the coconut and drink them both up whilst playing "New York City" on a banjo in the same room as a recently transmogrified and sadly soon to be doomed to a sudden plunge in a random planteoid atmopshere sperm whale who happens to have just eaten a portion of the original Apple Pi (or iPi if you like) and also a 2.5 dimensional bunny rabbit with a penchant for mischief who just happens to be singing the Aria from an alternate dimension's version of "The Janitor of Seville" while doing the electric boogaloo on a 10 foot by 10 foot twister board, can I achieve universal chaos? Or am I missing something?

Thank you,

Your admirer,

I'm an engineer and I'm OK
I sleep all night and I calculate the average head of a storm with a 1% chance of occuring each year assuming a constant flowrate, Q, and various hydraulic characteristics such as cross-section shape all day.

I feel... good today. It might be that I had sex this morning. It might be because, upon talking to Dr. Lockwood last night, she saw it as a challenge to give us what we need instead of "Well then I can't help you". It could be the fact that I'm wearing my bright red shirt and new bright red and blue tie.
It might be I just woke up in a good mood.

I'm a crazy person today, though. You should watch out. I added both strawberries AND blueberries to my bottle of water this morning ;)

Discussing Last Night )

Maybe everything had to fall to shit in my life for things to get better, for me to get the experience to know what I need out of these things... what I need my girlfriend to be doing, what I need from a job, even what I need out of couples counseling.
That's the optomist's point of view in any case. The pessimist in me suspects shit happens because.. she happens and I should know because shit happens to me often.
