I do not have much to say from my classes as they only started yesterday... and we only went through the syllabus. But I can comment on my independent study.

Next we want further explore the effect of gravity on pointing relative to the trunk... our plan is to have people point at targets while suspended upside down on a tilt table. I spent 2.5 minutes of my life yesterday upside down trying to set up the experiment. The things we do for research...
