    Default Hockey + Physics = Awesome!

    As some may know, I love some xkcd.com

    Well, this week they attempt to answer the question about whether or not a puck could know a goalie back into the net.

    Suffice it to say, hockey movies have lied to us.

    Also, I really want to see the ice tilting experiment he talks about.

    Enjoy, and don't forget to tip your waiter.

    If you want to see the ice tilt experiment just watch a Panthers game.

    More importantly, what would happen if you throw the rotten tomato at a bag of dicks? or a bag of apples?
