# 10 is not accurate, only implied guideline, too much reliance is placed
upon it by financial types who are math challenged.


# 8 Fourier Transform is * NOT * used in JPEG compression, the Cosine
Transform is.


# 6 is not that important to be in the top 10


#5 "gravity", not that important, only useful as an approximation, as "g"
applies only at the surface of Earth.


#4 Maxwells equations are good, but film clip shows an electric arcing
plasma in background.

so I disagree with film clip, not enough depth of knowledge.
