“ A woman who cultivates her looks ‘draws a sword to kill her neighbour’, declares Guibert of Tournai in the thirteenth century; she ‘bears a flame to burn a home; carries poison for anyone who wishes to take; she uncovers a pit so that an animal may fall into it’. A girl only has to show a bare neck, or sway a bit as she walks through town, proclaims another preacher, Bromyard, and in a single day she may be guilty of inflaming with lust maybe twenty men who see her, ‘damning the souls whom God has created’. The guilt is hers, not theirs. Moralists found it only too easy to omit the crucial rider which was added to a similar admonition a thousand years earlier: ‘the beauty of a woman is the greatest snare — or rather, not the beauty of woman, but unchastened gazing! ”

When a magnetic field moves through a conductor a current called an Eddy current is induced in the conductor due to the magnetic field’s movement. The flow of electrons in the conductor creates an opposing magnetic field to the magnet which results in damping of the magnet and causes heating inside of the conductor similar to heat buildup inside of power cords. The loss of energy used to heat up the conductor is equal to the loss of kinetic energy by the magnet.

“ Sometimes reality has a way of sneaking up and biting us in the ass. And when the dam bursts, all you can do is swim. The world of pretend is a cage, not a cocoon. We can only lie to ourselves for so long. We are tired, we are scared, denying it doesn’t change the truth. Sooner or later we have to put aside our denial and face the world. Head on, guns blazing. De Nile. It’s not just a river in Egypt, it’s a freakin’ ocean. So how do you keep from drowning in it? ”
