You know, I dislike politics more than most people I know. I just can’t wait to be finished with all these stupid blog posts, the rants I read on Facebook, and the ads that crowd my screen. They sound so much like children on a playground throwing tantrums who are yelling about some nonsense which I, for one, can’t understand. And yet, I can’t help thinking that this price hardly compares to all the beauty and the freedom beneath the surface of this day. Because that’s what today is, really, a day when all who’ve reached eighteen are allowed to … Read more »

Can you figure out the answer? Physics Riddles UPDATE: Solved. Correct answer by Brian: You look in the mirror to see what you “saw”, take the “saw” and cut the piece of wood in half. Put the two halves together to make a “whole”, and then just crawl out through the “whole”. Also have to give props to the most creative answer, by Ayman: Put the piece of wood behind u then look at ur self in the mirror ull find ur self in to woods and out of the cement. UPDATE: Unsolved. HINT: Step One- Take any six pills and divide them … Read more »
If you’re feeling a bit confused by all the quantum mechanics talk, don’t worry. You can take heart in this quote: For those who are not shocked when they first come across quantum theory cannot possibly have understood it. That is a quote by Niels Bohr, who ultimately received a Nobel Prize for his pioneering work in the field of quantum mechanics. And if he thinks shock is the natural response to learning about the quantum realm, then perhaps shock isn’t such a bad thing. Spooky Action At A Distance Did you know that ‘physicist’ was only Albert Einstein’s side … Read more »
So we’ve gathered several fun and interesting ‘physics facts’ and made them into images. To keep things exciting, we threw in a couple that are incorrect. If you know which ones they are, leave a comment under the image over on the Facebook page. Fun Physics Facts *That, for example, would be incorrect. Chuck Norris can destroy diamonds, also.

It’s time to get funky up in here! Woot woot! That’s right. In other news, I’m proud to announce that we’ve officially launched the first-ever PFC e-book, called Things That Move Us. Things That Move Us is a short e-book describing what PFC is, how it was started, and why it was even started in the first place. Design-wise, we’re going to make the bold claim that it’s unlike any e-book you’ve ever read before. And there are even a few surprises thrown in (more on that later). The best part is… we’re giving it away completely for free to anyone … Read more »
If you’ve been following along on Facebook today, you probably saw the mysterious image we posted this morning. After many awesome guesses as to what it is (our personal favorites were ‘a cavity’ and ‘Knights of the Round Table’), we finally have a winner! Here’s the posted image, followed by a series of slightly-clearer images (if you don’t yet know what it is, see if you can guess without scrolling all the way down): And now, the actual, unfiltered image… …a chess set! Congrats to Kara for guessing correctly. She even gets extra points for her incorrect guesses, because … Read more »
If there’s one thing I’ve learned over these first three months, it’s that PFC is not about one person. Though I do a lot of the writing around here, PFC exists independent of me and is (fortunately) far bigger than me. I work for PFC… not the other way around. I think that’s something I’ve always known. But with every day that’s passed since the launch, it has become increasingly clear. And all of that is a very good thing. What is PFC? I get asked the basic questions about PFC on a fairly regular basis. You’d think that answering … Read more »
