Settle an argument. A 150 person falls and grabs something as they do. Assuming they have kung-fu grip, how much weight does the thing they grab need to be able to withstand without tearing, breaking, whatever. I say the weight of the person. They say it's their weight and g-forces combined. Who is right and if they are, how do you calculate those g-forces? And if they are twisting as they fall, does torque figure into it?

updates a Facebook status via Twitter. Is there G+ equivalent? The Publish Sync
Chrome extension used to do what I want but it is now gone from the Chrome Web Store.
(I'm cool with workarounds like ifttt.com but Yahoo Pipes makes my brain cry.)

Very active one year old with G button (MIC-key low profile) During night feeds and traveling in car how do I keep her Button from being pulled? It has come out once before in the crib by her moving so much the slack in the feeding tube got caught in crib and pulled out. It was painful for her since the balloon was fully inflated. I want to keep this from happening again. How do other parents keep thier kids g buttons and tube feeding cord protected at night. She is a wiggly thing and often turns in her sleep many times from belly to back and forth. The feeding is necessary and cannot be missed. [more inside]

Do intelligence tests measure g
(i.e. general intelligence)? How do we know? With most testing standards, there's an arbitrary physical constant in the world for us to measure and quantify: the meter is defined in terms of a wavelength of light in a vacuum, for instance. However, intelligence tests seem more like the kilogram's platinum-iridium cylinder, which is a sort of moving target. What's the standard for g
? [more inside]

I'm showing a group of single 20-something people a movie tomorrow night for a church activity. The leader of the church has said that the movie must be rated-G. Besides Napolean Dynomite (which everone has seen a million times) what is the best rated-G movie out there for that age group? Funny, entertaining, etc. Thanks.
