Scientists break down the physics and neuroscience behind Bruce Lee’s legendary one-inch punch, the bodily application of his famous "be like water" philosophy.

Drawing upon both physical and neuro power, Lee’s devastating one-inch punch involved substantially more than arm strength. It was achieved through the fluid teamwork of every body part. It was his feet. It was hips and arms. It was even his brain. In several milliseconds, a spark of kinetic energy ignited in Lee’s feet and surged through his core to his limbs before its eventual release.
[…]
Every bodily jerk has an apex of force. To not only maximize on that force — but to augment it — Lee perfectly synchronizes his movements, one after the other, linking them like boxcars on a train. To be sure, countless muscle men have been stronger than Lee, but few, if any, could deliver more more power than Lee with just one inch.
What makes the difference? Lee’s brain.

Or, one might argue, Lee’s mind.
The full article is well worth the read.

When I see Cats following me on Tumblr / Goggle Cat

So, it’s not a rare occurrence to see a Cat start following me on Tumblr. Like, literally, a real Cat. How do I know that I actually have a following of real Cats on Tumblr? Because their user icon is that of a Cat. It would just be silly for a human to masquerade as a Cat on Tumblr.

One night, a particularly majestic Russian Blue started following me. In his photo, he had on a pair of Goggles that were so stylish, I couldn’t help but imagine what my GIFs would look like reflecting off of them. I suppose that most of my followers would be just as transfixed with my images as this Cat seems to have been.
