## My Physics Teacher Lied

The least important things sometimes, my dear boy, lead to the greatest discoveries.
The Doctor (William Hartnell) Serial: The Space Museum Episode: The Dimensions of Time (1965).

Gravity (Wikipedia):

Every planetary body (including the Earth) is surrounded by its own gravitational field, which exerts an attractive force on all objects. Assuming a spherically symmetrical planet, the strength of this field at any given point is proportional to the planetary body's mass and inversely proportional to the square of the distance from the center of the body.
The strength of the gravitational field is numerically equal to the acceleration of objects under its influence, and its value at the Earth's surface, denoted g, is expressed below as the standard average. According to the International Bureau of Weights and Measures, under the International System of Units (SI), the Earth's standard acceleration due to gravity is:
g = 9.80665 m/s2 (32.1740 ft/s2).
I'm beginning to have my doubts.

## The House's suit will backfire

Based on the normal timing of a lawsuit it is very possible that the suit will backfire on the Republicans and the Democrats will get press supporting the President and complaining about the House's wasteful spending.

## Responsible Gun Owner Fail.

Around 35 miles from my home a hunter was killed in an example of how gun owners handle their weapons.

The witness said that he and Huffman were going hunting and he had entered a deer stand. The witness stated he climbed up a ladder and then turned to receive his weapon. Huffman reportedly handed the rifle to the witness and the rifle discharged as the witness received the rifle with the muzzle pointing downward toward the Huffman.
Remember that when handing a gun to your hunting partner ensure the gun has a round chambered and hold the barrel such that it points toward you.

## Many voters should thank Wendy Davis

I can attest to first hand knowledge of the effects of Wendy Davis' Floor Amendment #41 to the Texas' Voter I.D. law. Around 40% of the voters at my voting box, where I served as a judge, would have been prevented from voting without our application of the "similar name" amendment.

See my diary with my report from last night.

## Texas Election Judge's Diary

After spending 13 hours at the polls as the Election Judge, I am here to report what happened in relation to the new Voter I.D law. Almost 40% of the voters had ID's which didn't match their listing on the voter roles.

I hope we did everything by the book since a state inspector showed up 15 minutes before the polls open and then returned for the last two hours and remained until we signed the report from on voting machine's total voters report.
