Laminar Reverse Flow

Ever heard of laminar reverse flow?
Don’t feel too bad if you haven’t. You’d need to be a slide-rule-carrying techno-geek to know about it.
But the fact is that it’s a pretty amazing process, which is demonstrated in a short video seen at today’s FamilyFirst pick.
Here’s a summary of what’s going on:

Laminar flow, sometimes known as streamline flow, occurs when a fluid flows in parallel layers, with no disruption between the layers. In fluid dynamics, laminar flow is a flow regime characterized by high momentum diffusion, low momentum convection, pressure and velocity independent from time. It is the opposite of turbulent flow. In non-scientific terms laminar flow is “smooth,” while turbulent flow is “rough.”

HTML Playground

Okay, gang, it’s time to get back to the roots.
The internet is made of HTML. CSS is also a more and more dominant part of the mixture.
You need to at least know the basics of this stuff.
I insist. 😉
Today’s FamilyFirst pick provides a sandbox for you to play in, and learn something about the code that is the very basis for the internet in the process.
