|2 weeks 5 days ago||blues brothers theme||
i feel like you could add the blues brothers to your list, even if the music is more instrumental than lyrical
|5 weeks 2 days ago||chemical engineer here||
from what i read it was 50° outdoors at game time, and the balls were inflated in a 75°F room. by my calculations that would account for a 1.3 psi drop which differs slightly from what someone posted above
assuming ideal gas law, PV=nRT and V, n, and R remain the same, therefore, P/T= a constant. or writtten another way, P1/T1=k=P2/T2 or P2=(P1/T1)*T2
T1=75°F (or 534.67 Rankine since absolute temps are required)
P1=12.5 psig assuming the low end of legal range (equals 27.2 psia)
T2=50°F (or 509.67 Rankine)
Pluging in: P2 = (27.2/534.67)*509.67= 25.93 psia (or 11.23 psig)
Thats a difference of 1.27 psi from the start.
Air is pretty close to ideal, especially under this low of pressure and normal temps, but i also checked this against density tables i have at work. the difference i calculated that way was 1.28 psi so it checks out
And since we must now speculate on explanations to account for the other 0.7 psi,, i estimate all of these to be more likely than foul play: the balls leaking slightly, the calibration for the gauges used is not exact, or the temperaturesreported not accurate

anyway, glad there is another one. these are fun. maybe we should do it again sometime in 10 years
|25 weeks 5 days ago||yow! looks like i got called out over at THTRB||
in my defense, the way he worded the sentence -
Now we're back together for one penultimate blogjam before the end of the series (or the End of Days, whichever comes first).
- sounded to me that this was the final blogjam, regardless of there being two games left in the series. but, point taken
|25 weeks 6 days ago||The six biggest plays||
Would you mind adding an arrow with a number for these? I always struggle to rember/figure out where these plays happened over the course of the game. Thanks and keep up the good work
|1 year 22 weeks ago||re: Gallon||
it looks like the only one on him is the safety 10 yards downfield. the linebacker nearest gallon is clearly on backside contain as he only glances at him and then pursues the play. i dont see how a quick pass to gallon doesnt get at least 8 yards. its a TD if he beats the safety
i think that is a bigger problem with our offense. the inability to switch out of bad (or into good) plays when the defense sells out to stop the run on first down. if we wont change our play based on what the defense gives us, at the very least we need to be less predictable so that every 1st and 10 defense tees off on the obvious run call
|1 year 24 weeks ago||thats what i got||
thats what i got, but it doesnt make sense if it was on 1st down...
|1 year 25 weeks ago||penultimate||
it bothers me when people use that word wrong...
It means the second to last, not the last
(referencing opening paragraph at THRB for those who didnt click through)

or just a b-hole
for someone 'new to mgoblog' you sure come out swinging. but as far as your original question goes, the OP gave the actual R^2 value so you could make your own conclusions. you can dismiss it since it is below your chemistry standards of .96 or you can understand the amount of noise in the sampling and take it for what it's worth
[edit: sorry that was meant to be in reply to the previous commentor]

|1 year 42 weeks ago||pav jersey?||
hard to tell, but i think that is a 3 and a 1 (plus the A limits the options)
also, a factoid for you: the wings now place the C and A letters on the opposite side of the jersey to balance out the wing

am i the only one that though 'five dolla foot loooong' while reading this?
also, having subs is cray
|2 years 6 weeks ago||i dont buy it either||
i find it really hard to believe that te'o was tricked. there are just too many contradictions in the story. how could he not know it was fake after her "death?" i can get that he couldnt attend the funeral because of football commitments, but dont you at least send flowers to the home or call the parents to share in remorse? neither of those exist either so things should have broke then.
i have a feeling it will come out that te'o had a relationship with this Ronaiah Tuiasosopo guy. perhaps they were trying to disguise it as a heterosexual relationship due to religious and/or PR pressure. then they tried to cover up the whole lie by having her "die" but that just made it worse.
even if my theory is incorrect, i need some way better explanation from Te'o before i can believe he wasn't in on it

|2 years 23 weeks ago||part of that is the punter||
UMass cant punt the ball very far so no matter what style they were running, they probably would have good coverage. With hagerup putting it a lot further out there he has the ability to outkick the coverage. i'm not saying the spread is not better than the traditional formation, but this is a bit apples and oranges
|2 years 28 weeks ago||we are clearly biased tho||
before jumping to the conclusion that urban is a phony and hoke is geniune and therefore better in all aspects of coaching let's take a step back. do people outside the UM/ohio rivalry feel the same way? i doubt it. and as much as we hate urban, gotta give the guy his due - hes done very well in florida and his current recruiting class is still something we would be happy with most years
|2 years 28 weeks ago||despite the rudeness||
these are actually pretty good suggestions, and i'll second that line graphs should really only be used when expressing a change over time. another good rule of thumb to keep in mind is to never use pie charts or 3d anything. both almost always sacrifice clarity for flashiness

was i the only one that crapped my pants after reading the caption "We'll miss you, big guy. " underneath Big Will?
with some offseason attrition already and Will's psuedo legal trouble with 100m car hurdle it just gave me a quick panic shock

|3 years 23 weeks ago||This another reason why i like Belichick||
the pats had 1st and 10 from the own one in each of their last two games. both times they threw it. last week that resulted in a 99 yd touchdown and this week a ~14 yarder. it's probably an even easier play than normal because the defense is expecting you to run and loading up the box.
