icelightning: (solar system friends list existentialsta)
Our in-class Aero/Hydrodynamics video today proves that college students have dirty minds. A paraphased quote, with key "issues" bolded (don't worry about the actual meaning of the sentence):

"Blowing and suction increase lift over an airfoil (2-D wing) by reducing flow separation and turbulent flow."

This lead to a short conversation about the video after class between two of my friends and I.

Arafat: "Suction really does it for me. It turns me on!"
Me: "..."
Andrew: "..."
Me: "... Well, at least no one will forget that blowing and suction increases lift?"
Andrew: "... I don't know this kid." *About Arafat.*

When the TA sends the script to us, there's no way I'll read it through without giggling. I love old films.

(For those curious, the film is the old 1968 classic "Fundamentals of Boundary Layers".)
