A Verdadeira Capoeira

By Angelo Augusto Decânio Filho - Mestre Dr. Decânio.
Translated by Mestre Fernando "Gato" Albuquerque, and retranslated/edited by me.

The true capoeira of each one of us is that which lives in the body of each of us. There exists ethical, technical, and musical standards, however capoeira is the behavioral manifestation of each being; the greatest expression of human individuality.

Science Sunday: The Sound and Fury of Lightning

It's been a long while.  I shouldn't have left you (left you), without a dope post to step to.  Step to, step to, step to...  I'm so totally not addressing the 3 month absence.  Onward!

Lightning!  One of nature's many spectacular light shows! I learned a little bit about electric discharges in college-level Electricity and Magnetism, with a brief mention as to how lightning works.  However, since I never took any atmospheric science, I never got an in-depth look at it.  Let's get into it RIGHT NOW!  Note, there is going to be a bit of physics jargon in this post, but I promise to keep it light.  Cross my heart, hope to die, stick a needle in my eye.
