Somehow or other, something I read today triggered my memory of the rate of acceleration due to gravity, 32.174-feet/sec2. BOOM — and there it was in my head.

Here is what is interesting about that instant recall: the only times in my life that I ever actually used that number was on college physics exams. Not once — not even once — was I obliged to summon that number from memory in more than 25-years was a working engineer. I don’t know what fascinates me most: the way the mind works, or the strange training of an engineering education.

Just thought I’d share. That is all.
