Thanks, Textbooks.

A collection of the world's finest academic writing. (Updated weekly).

When am I ever going to use this!?  How about later in your career when you need to find out how fast a particular animal travels… and the server at Google and Bing and every other search engine has crashed… and the only way you can find it is by comparing it to a completely random animal that lives on the other side of the world… and you just happen to know the ratio of their two speeds?

What will you do then!?  You’re going to be so glad you learned this…
