    Cool Notes From A Queer Engineer: Yuna Kim And The Physics of Figure Skating

    http://www.autostraddle.com/notes-fr...kating-219987/

    Aside from one glaring error that says Yuna did 3 axel in a gala, it is really an interesting read.

    Physics for Artistes. Sounds like a tremendous idea for an undergrad gut course, right alongside Rocks for Jocks (Intro Geology) and Stars for Studs (Intro Astronomy). I took both, and enjoyed them immensely.

    Sadly, no. In satisfaction of bullshit distribution requirements at 10x the cost. When Milton Friedman trumpeted the efficiency of the private sector, I am sure he did not have academia in mind.

    Sometimes the silliest-sounding courses are the best! (I took 'Physics for future presidents')

    To be fair to my alma mater, the official names of the courses I took were suitably low-key, and the style probably haven't changed in at least a couple of hundred years (Introduction to...& etc.). 'Rocks for Jocks' and 'Stars for Studs' is what the students affectionately called them.

    (BTW: what physics do presidents have to know? Radioactive half-lives and megaton yields? )
