Gaspard Gustave Coriolis is one of the 72 scientists with their names inscribed on the Eiffel Tower, but as far as I can tell all his writing seemed to be about billiards. It started subtly with "principle of kinetic energy in the relative motion in machines" and "on the equations of relative motion of a system of bodies", but then he just came right out with it: "Mathematical theory of spin, friction, and collision in the game of billiards".
Speaking of coming right out with it, we're going to be collecting canned goods and other non-perishable food items tonight at the quiz. Our very own Mary O'Shag will be present and she will want to see your cans. Any team whose members all bring donations will receive an entire bonus point added to their score for the night.
