Nope, not me. i looked up those answers all by myself.

My last physics question was in 1987 at CWRU -- let's keep it that way. It's all about the Octopus.
That poor 8 tentacled creature was minding his own business at a Red Wings game when a BFADS member went berserk because the deals were so sucky and tossed him onto the ice, where one tentacle was severed by Lidstrom's skate and he was bludgeoned to death by Ty Conklin.
