A Weird Textbook of Mine.

Postby pi-3 orionis » Thu Nov 22, 2007 8:16 am UTC

So I found this physics textbook in my garage a few months ago and I noticed that a lot of the pictures were pretty funny. I scanned them, and then added some captions, and I thought I'd share them here. Oh, and excuse those typos, I did this late at night and was too lazy to fix them.

Yes, that was the actual problem that was asked in the book.

That text book is hilarious. I wish I could look at cool, old text books.

Actually it's not as old as you would think, it was published in '82.

...and that slightly ambiguous comment had me paralytically confused for about a minute, there.
The textbook was human?
