Physics lesson for the day. Annihilation refers to the conversion of matter when it comes in contact with anti-matter to become pure energy via Einstein’s E=mc2. Plugging in the mass of electron (or it’s anti-matter twin, the positron), the speed of light, and some conversion factors, you get 511 keV photons. These are the signals that are detected in PET scanners in the hospital. Happy PET day! Apparently, this is important in astrophysics too.
Annihilation in the beatdown sense involves a great deal of energy performing exercises with coupons. Exercises came primarily from the F3exicon. 8 #HIM posted for the virtual workout.

Half-time: Disconnect and re-connect in Zoom so we don’t get cut off in the middle of the 2nd half. Unfortunately, we lost Dos for most the 2nd half due to technical difficulties.
2nd Half: Repeat 12 exercises above.
Finale: Mountie led us in a round of Boat / Canoes!
Name-o-rama: Scar took off before name-o-rama and XX’s mic was muted somehow.
COT: Grateful for all the Moms in our lives. Grateful for the fellowship of the PAX. Continued gratitude for essential workers.
