Sometimes, things are wrong. At one point they may have been alright, and are now considered wrong, or, they always have been and ever will be just plain wrong. Oft times, these wrong things are also funny.

With that in mind, this endeavour features two main strands: the "Shelf of Shame" (books) and the "Screen of Shame" (film) and smaller strands such as "Sound of Shame" (vinyl) and "Miscellany of Shame" (various) - each showcasing items from my personal collection of bibliographic and cinematic oddities and curios.

Deemed shame-worthy according to varying criteria of wrongness, these humourous, surprising, and occasionally instructive items are therefore posted here for your perusal, amusement and edification. Enjoy.

Shelf of Shame #15


Mass, Length and Time. Norman Feather. Penguin Books: London: 1961. Orig. pub. 1959 by Edinburgh University Press. Paperback w. illustrated card covers. 358pp. + in-text illus.

If reading about the basics of physics turns you on, then this book is all the porn you need. Indeed, if you like it that much, you could say that "Feather tickles your fancy"... ahem.

For the rest of us, however, amusement must be derived from our perverted minds, in which cause the chapter and segment designations in this book lend themselves relatively (!) well to innuendo.

My favourites are appended here below:

- Measurement of Length in Practice
- The Screw in Relation to Measurement
- Uniformly Accelerated Rectilinear Motion
- Motion in Space
- Simple Harmonic Motion

- The Motion of Real Bodies
- Comparison of Masses: Ballistic Balance
- Some Problems of Equilibrium
- Collisions Between Real Bodies
- Frictions of Solids
- Friction of Liquids: Lubrication and Viscosity
- Interfacial Energy

This provocative subject material might have caught on had it been popularized by an artist sensitive to the subject matter, say... Olivia Newton John. Especially if she accompanied them with risque videos. This surely would have earned her an honourary doctorate in getting Physical - which prompts one to wonder why Mr. Jeremy has also not been accorded this honour?... after all his, erm, body of work has touched on most of the, erm, headings given above. Which fine upstanding bastion of higher learning will come forward and rectify this wrong? Well, while waiting for redress of this injustice, I'm going to check out some Torsional Oscillations - what can I say? It's a little fetish of mine.

For Further Research:
General Physics
Author Norman Feather, and something neat about him
Olivia Newton John
and if you really need to... Ron Jeremy
