I only voted for what is the most common for me. Thanksgiving week will be a little different for me because I get a week off and have no homework. That means I can spend it doing nothing but computer games (A5 demo).

Perpendicular to the plane, the normal force balances the component of gravity:
F_net = 0
n - Mg cos&#x03B8 = 0
n = Mg cos&#x03B8

Parallel to the plane, tension opposes friction and another component of gravity:
F_net = Ma
T - f - Mg sin&#x03B8 = Ma
T = f + Mg sin&#x03B8 + Ma
Since f = &#x03BCn, and n was found above:
T = &#x03BCMg cos&#x03B8 + Mg sin&#x03B8 + Ma

Now the hanging mass. I'll define up as positive, which means, since it's falling, its acceleration is in the negative direction. Use that the tension is equal to the tension found above.
F_net = 2Ma
T - 2mg = -2Ma
&#x03BCMg cos&#x03B8 + Mg sin&#x03B8 + Ma - 2Mg = -2Ma
Cancel M's and move the a's to one side:
&#x03BCg cos&#x03B8 + g sin&#x03B8 - 2g = -2a - a
Factor out the g:
a = (g)(-1/3)(&#x03BC cos&#x03B8 + sin&#x03B8 - 2)

Plugging in values, this yields a = 3.43 m/s^2.

Wow, I am not looking forward to my physics class next semester now. >.<

Baten Kaitos had the Magnus system. Every thing you did depends on the Magnus cards that you had. Fighting with Magnus fun because you use combos with the cards to deal out more dmg and these combos let special attacks take place.

The last time I went out shooting with my buds I tried shooting with my right hand for a bit and let us just say that I missed ever shot with my right hand. Back to my left hand and I could shoot about 7 out of 10.

What made Golden Sun and Golden Sun the Lost Age so great to me was that you can import the very same caracters that you used in Golden Sun to The Lost Age game. The use of Djinn both in battle and in puzzel-solving makes it stand out a bit from other RPGs I think. The lost age was also very non-liner.

Clockwise is all I can see and it is chopy, like I am seeing some of the frames in the animation. I am left eye dominate and use my left hand for things such as shooting. I write and throw with my right hand, and can use both for eating.

I react to the end of Idaho's general fishing season (Nov 1) by dusting off my snowboards, beating the moths out of my snow-pants, and hoping for the mountains to be covered in 5+ feet of snow by Thanksgiving Day.

I just hope that the release date doesn't get pushed back like it means nothing. I do understand the need to work out the bugs, but I really hope that here is no wait like with the last Zelda game. That really killed me.

I carved a sabertoothed-lime on my pumpkin for this year. Long live KoL.

Tonight I will spend trying to get some respect from my friends by playing triple yahtzee. Last time we played I was crushed by more then 1500 pionts.

I might dress up as a snowboarder too. I can't wait for the slopes to open for the season.

EDIT: spelling

I thought that the fact that you are tracking down the "villain" (Dorikas I assumed because he got away in A4) made it clear that this was in chronological order with the other Avernum games. But that's just me. :P

Mine came from reading the "Dark is rising" by Susan Cooper. i ment for it to be Rowan like the wood that one of the seals was made from but dyslexic spelling took over and made me write Rowen. I like it so I kept it.

My new name that I use because of Rowens growing popularity is Nixak. I like that one too.

Has anyone read "Unholy War, terror in the name of Islam " by Jon L. Esposito? I have just started it for my globalization class and it seem intriguing.

0-never had one that my fokes cooked.

Yes cranberry sauce is good, I also find that grave helps withteh breast meat if it's to dry.

Pumpkin pie to pecan or lemon. It's all there.

Never seen the turky neck on the table before.

Turkey dressing? I know that i like stuffing, that the same thing as turkey dressing?

We never cook on Thanksgiving day. We just go out to eat at a rather fine place and let them do all the cooking and washing of dishes. We've done this for as long as I can remember. One year we even had pizza, but that's a diffrent story.

What do people her think of FF11? I have played it a bit and found it rather fun. It seems like a big world, but I can't say what the plot is like because I never got far along in the game. As soon as I bootcamp my Mac I can start playing again.

I remeber fantasoft! I was such a big Realmz fan. I remember it was always funner to kill the orcs with the town army then to go after to goblins in a suicide run. Besides, the orcs seemed hard. I just wish that my guys could have fought on horse back.

The
Lord of the Rings trilogy was... well, to be honest, I didn't actually care much for it. I found that it had way too many story lines going at once, moved too slowly, and at times was repetitive or tedious. It focused way too much on details that had to be remembered for later and not enough on telling the story. Maybe that's why I preferred [i]The Hobbit[i].[/QB]
You want way to much detail, that is what the WoT is. Eleven books and now they wont be finished. I rather enjoyed Robert Jordan's WoT even with the great detail that took pages to read.

Edit: Has anyone read the "Edge Chronicles"? I found the first three to be rather good.
