Taking your daily commute to work, paper cup of scalding coffee in one hand and the other hand gripping the rail, you gently rock to and fro as the rail car shuttles along its pre-ordained route. From experience you know that you need to be especially careful not to scald yourself when you enter and depart a station as the rail car smoothly de-accelerates and accelerates, respectively. These events are mercifully predictable but despite your status as a veteran commuter the jerks[1] between stations remain mercilessly unpredictable.
