Elvin Joseph Sanico was one of the best professors I was privileged to have at the UP National Institute of Physics in Diliman. His use of the continuity equation for steady one-dimensional flow to prove the "silent waters run deep" axiom was really cool!

Brakes Part I
Saturday, Sep 23, 2006, 8:00 PM
When we heard a loud "tug-tug-tug" as I backed the car out of the parking lot, I thought I ran over a large pebble or something. But when I went down an incline and stepped on the brakes to slow down our descent, the brakes gave out! Stopping was extremely slow, even when I pumped and pressed the pedal to the floor. There was only that "tug-tug-tug" sound that drove us crazy.

I drove in a drizzle with defective brakes for roughly 6 kilometers, relying on the engine, transmission, and God Almighty to bring my family home safely.

Looks like we'll be car-less for Phoenix's birthday party tomorrow.
