FernGully Revisited

FernGully is on TV right now, and I just had a shocking revelation that Lois from Big Love is Magi Lune. I had just watched the last episode of Big Love on demand and then I turned on FernGully while she was talking and I was like HOLD ON, I KNOW THIS. Confirmed on imdb.
There is so much I didn't remember about this movie that is coming back to me now. Like the ridiculous rap musical numbers, the creepy goo form of Hexxus, Batty Koda and the greatness of Robin Williams as an animated personality in general. Let's all just take a moment to appreciate how great Robin Williams was in Aladdin.

Okay, the moment's over.
Now everybody plant a tree.

I rewatched Fern Gully a while ago and was disappointed. The film will always have a place in my heart, but it really does not age well with time (I blame the music). However, I still think the number when they are skipping over the water is special, and that Hexxus is one of the most unique villains in an animated feature.

I will always love Fern Gully. My mom just bought the DVD for me. Brought back memories for my whole family.

Units of NPSH
For centrifugal pumps, NPSH values are expressed in units of specific energy (equivalent column height) such as feet or meters. For displacement pumps (rotary and reciprocating), NPSH values are normally expressed in pressure units such as pounds per square inch (psi), kilopascals, or bars.

NPSH values are neither gauge pressures nor absolute pressures. The g in psig means that the pressure is measured above atmospheric pressure. The a in psia means that the pressure is measured above absolute zero, a perfect vacuum. NPSH is a measurement of pressure above vapor pressure, so the units of NPSH (in the U.S.) are just psi or feet.

I didn't know where else to show you this.. or if you were even aware, but NPSH in MATH!!
