Euler's disk is a toy some guy "invented" that is exactly the same as spinning a quarter on a table top. He just used better materials and marketed it. Behind the scenes of this toy, there is an insane amount of study involved.[1]

Physicists are fucking retarded.[2]

Quote.png IGx, IGy, and IGz are the principal moments of inertia of the disk about point G about the local x, y, and z directions (respectively)...Jesus Christ, nobody gives a shit about all this. It's a fucking coin.[3] Quote1.png


Euler's Disk is a list of phenomena that I tend to forget the name of...
