Under Pressure!

(Right now imagine Billy Joel's song "Pressure" playing while you read this) 

College students are deep into finals right now, and the pressure has been building.  Talk abounds on loss of sleep and giddiness under stress.

(Crossfade the music into "Under Pressure" by Queen and David Bowie)
In honor of our students handling this round of academic chaos, take a break, watch this informative and entertaining video! by Sixty Symbols:
Symbol: Pa (Pascal) | Video Title: Vacuum Cannon

The Pascal, 1 neuton per square meter, is the SI measurement of pressure.  However on a scale of 1 to steam out of your ears, my student friends are approaching tea kettle status.  Good luck guys! It's almost over!!
