A centrally located town in Connecticut. Bordered by New Britain, Cheshire, Meriden, Bristol, Plainville, and Berlin. Its a valley, so all the shit flows down hill. That is my theory explaining our amount of screwed upness. We have low taxes because we sacrifice many social services. We have the least ambitious students around. The last time someone got into Yale was in 1976. Most of our school is content simply ingesting random drugs. We have a drinking high school with a football problem. We have Tops Supermarket which encompasses all that is screwed up about this town. In short, this place sucks and don't move here if possible. John Sample is a REAL person and the living embodiment of our dysfunctional nature. Trivia Bonus: John Sample worked at Tops.

Hi, I am from Southington and I am ashamed about it.

Force = Mass X Acceleration in a linear system. The units of force are kilogram meter per second squared or newtons.

Given that a due to gravity on earth is equal to 9.8 m/s^2 in an MKS system, calculate the force due to gravity on a 100 kg man. The answer is 980 N.

Work = Force X Displacement X Cos(theta)

The units to it are kilogram meter per second squared or joules.

Super preppy pushed a 20 Kg Hay bale a distance of 5 M/S^2 at an angle of pi/3. He did 50 Joules of work.

ATX is a motherboard and power supply form factor. That means that ATX cases need ATX motherboards and ATX power supplies.

I got an NForce2 with a 450 watt power supply in my ATX case.
