OT: Spring (training) Is Here -- Feb 20th ed.




Spring has sprung down in Peoria, and coming Friday the 22nd there will be baseball on the radio once more. A game vs the Padres! Quelle surprise!

Not to be confused with Surprise, Arizona, mind you, where spring training is also back.

Spring is also heralded for me by daylight savings time, which won't begin until March 10th. Apparently "the idea of daylight saving time was first conceived by Benjamin Franklin in 1784 during his stay in Paris. He published an essay titled “An Economical Project for Diminishing the Cost of Light” that proposed to economize the use of candles by rising earlier to make use of the morning sunlight."

Did you know that the English Longbow is considered to be a spring?

Another non-coil springs is the tweezer, which could be found in use in Ancient Egypt.

Hooke’s Law is a law which shows the relationship between the forces applied to a spring and to its elasticity.
