Speed Of Gravity!
Had an incident last week, leaving a customers house the driveway was one of those painted tan color type covering over concrete. It was slicker than snot! A newly hired co partner journeyman was getting his orientation week in with me. I find myself doing the slam-bam jig to face myself and would have broken my check bone, nose, shoulder, thumb, and who knows what else. This co journeyman is beyond a XXX size shirt and 6'3 or more and not an ounce of fat, built like Hercules. I came to a dead stop about 1/2" air-gap from my ball cap hat bill. He picked me up like a toothpick to him and said J.B. "I got ya back, its all good"! Needless to say my eyeballs were looking side to side while thinking how did this guy move that quick like smooth butter and pull that one off?!!!

Here I thought you were asking a physics question, to which the answer might be 32 feet per second, per second.

I like to sit outside and slap mosquitos while watching countless supertankers, barges and cargo ships of every shape and size carry all sorts of deadly toxins to and fro. It's really beautiful at times.....just don't eat the three eyed fish....

Not a Physics question just a true story! I'm now the "Senior Technical Manger/Advisory/Bail You Out Go To Guy". I've hired all of these Hercules built types and there is one thing they all know of me is that I will tunnel rat when needed and do any task I would ask of them if needed. I get laughed at all in fun a lot, Mutt & Jeff looking crew if I'm at the job site! Funny how they are all laid back while I run all over town and office like a "Speedy Gonzales"! I do know this, I Could not ask for a better crew!
