Found a cop in a good mood...

This past semester has been challenging...snow, cold and too many classes ( i took extra duties to make a few extra $'s).
Yesterday was my first long ride of the Spring. Around mile 60, on straight stretch of HWy 52, my right wrist, after the winter slumber, decided it was time...
 
2 minutes later, on the side if the road, the cop says: "Sir, we usually give, on this stretch on the road, a leeway of 10 miles over the posted 55, but I clocked you at 70. Where were you going?".
 
The look of dismay on my face, coupled with my Papa Smurf physique, white beard and white hair, must have reassured the young man.
He let me go with a warning. I need to stick with curvy roads...

Uhm, I don't know. I can be badass in Physics too :)
 
Except at final grades times. If you have done the work, I give people breaks.

It depends...Do you know the proper units for torque?

:) Let's see: joules = newtons x meters, radians = unitless, therefore joules/rad = newton x meter.
Clearly the lady is yanking my chain: she's right dimensionally, but oh so wrong for other reasons. Let's call it dyne*cm and end the madness ;)
