Splinters
In the 1910s to 1920s, board racing was all the craze. The bikes were designed to run fast, and that was about it: they had to be towed behind other motorcycles to get them started, and they had no brakes. The tracks, called motordromes, came in various sizes and were made of lengths of 2-by-2 and 2-by-4 lumber with rough-cut surfaces. The turns were severely banked, allowing riders to reach speeds of more than 100 miles an hour. Crashes were frequent and horrific—riders who went down faced being impaled by splinters—and often fatal.

This is a photograph of one of the racers from the HD museum in Milwaukee. The historical images from that time are amazing and showed just how rough the track surface really was. Nothing like the slick banked curve the bikes were being displayed on.

I've often compared resizing a hard drive partition while you're using it to changing a tire while driving down the road at 60 MPH. I guess I'm going to need a better comparison.

The Brachistochrone
This animation is about one of the most significant problems in the history of mathematics: The Brachistochrone Challenge:

If a ball is to roll down a ramp which connects two points, what must be the shape of the ramp’s curve be, such that the descent time is a minimum?

Intuition says that it should be a straight line. That would minimize the distance, but the minimum time happens when the ramp curve is the one shown: a cycloid.

Johann Bernoulli posed the problem to the mathematicians of Europe in 1696, and ultimately, several found the solution. However, a new branch of mathematics, Calculus of Variations, had to be invented to deal with such problems. Today, calculus of variations is vital in Quantum Mechanics and other fields.
