What is a god? Is it a lie? A concept? A hope? Who knows, as we cannot prove nor disprove their existence, we shall never know what a god truly is. Though, if you want an answer, I could give you my opinion. A god, is whatever you want it to be. To one person, a god may be some higher being of greater power.

It appears that students often think that the ceiling tiles are extremely light, and don’t have much capability in the offensive front, so it was decided to simulate a situation where a tile would fall on a student during an earthquake. The class found that one ceiling tile is about 5.5 pounds, and that on average, the distance from the ceiling to an unsuspecting student’s head will be 4.25 feet. Since the tile will go about 5 miles per second, whatever it […]
