In case you don't recall, S.H.I.E.L.D. built a special container for The Hulk. The idea was that no one could break through the glass (it was probably transparent aluminum) – but if someone DID, they could just drop the whole thing out of the helicopter. Loki ends of tricking Thor to get him trapped in there and then drops it.
- If the container is a cylinder about 8 meters in diameter, what would be the terminal velocity of this cylinder? You are going to have to an educated approximation for the mass.
Bzzt. There's a basic physics literacy issue here: acceleration/velocity of a falling object is independent of mass. It's completely irrelevant what the mass is. We do not live in an Aristotelian universe. I give the assignment itself an F based on this alone (note that there are several questions which have the same view of mass in relation to velocity of a falling body).
2) Some things never change: I was reminded of the following by a post on Slacktivist (one irony being that Slacktivist (properly) paints the British Evangelical tradition as more flexible than the American one.
"There is a section of the church, numbering perhaps a quarter of its members, the 'Evangelical' party, whose set and fixed practice, if not principle, is opposition to the recognition of any sort of change in the status quo in the church. (They themselves have changed considerably both in teaching and practice since the time of Charles Simeon. It is not so much change as the acknowledgement of it that they dislike.) The nineteenth century bishops were so preoccupied with opposing the Oxford Movement that they took no steps to prevent what the Elizabethan bishops in their own day more wisely foresaw must be a danger to the cohesion of the church -- the formation of a puritan imperium in imperio within the church, permanently impenetrable behind a financial rampart to any ideas current in the rest of the church. By the system of Evangelical schools, Evangelical halls at the Universities, Evangelical theological colleges and Evangelical patronage trusts, it is now quite possible for a boy to be educated and grow up, take a degree, be ordained and serve a ministerial lifetime, without once encountering directly any theological idea unacceptable to the founders of the party in the period of the Crimean War."
The quotation is from Dom Gregory Dix's Shape of the Liturgy, published in 1945. You can see already the kernel of what has become the Anglican Network; if its current impetus derives from more recent changes, the first thing to galvanize the subgroups which later made it up was the introduction of non-BCP liturgies in the 1970s and 1980s. (Note that "Evangelical" in the Anglican context does not mean the same thing as it does in the American context, although if you look at Network fora based in the US you will find considerable overlap between the two groups as far as political and moral opinions goes -- i.e. conservative Episcopalian Evangelicals (Anglican meaning) heavily resemble antinomian American Evangelicals (second meaning) in many areas not having to do with liturgy (and class -- Episcopalians are usually from further up the class hierarchy)).
3) There is a CBC Radio tagline about providing 100% of your music listening requirements. I have news for them: unless they start playing a lot more pre-baroque and baroque music, they're nowhere near 50%, let alone 100%.
