Clever girl

My kids daycare taught her this trick on Monday. She's been doing it all week.

Looks fun.

The fourth little piggy tried to hide in a reinforced brick building.

The wolf huffed and puffed and was caught in the act of arson.

BAM! Just fell on the ice...

That could've gone much worse.

A slope that takes the least time for something to roll down.

Interestingly, the Brachistochrone curve (curve of quickest descent) is also the Tautochrone curve (curve of same descent).  A ball placed anywhere along this curve (regardless of it's distance to the bottom) will take the exact same amount of time to reach the bottom. I always found this to be awesome when i learned about it in differential equations. Plus the whole story about how Newton anonymously published the answer to this problem is kinda romantic.

Edit: Wow thank you for the gold r/HypotheticalRicotta !

As promised, here is a link to a few pages from my old differential equations textbook.  I love how Bernoulli immediately recognized Newton's brilliance and said the infamous line: "recognized the lion by his claw".:

Edit2: changed paw to claw... thanks

Trump is a nasty human being, but his kid never asked for this spotlight. I mean, we were all awkward as fuck when we were 10. Let's not sink this low and start making fun of kids or we're no better than Trump and his shitty fanbase.
