An example of intimidation affecting the brain

Working on my game, attempting collision detection--and I forgot how to calculate the distance between two euclidean points. WTF? I knew a sqrt was involved, but. Damn! DISTANCE, folks!

Okay, making progress...

Then I almost freaked out at finding the midpoint. Seriously, not a proud day in the Kaolin life. But I got that with just a short bit of panic and a shake of the head. Now pounding my skull on the nearly-as-obvious disk/sphere collision. I have an intuition for how to do that that feels fairly inspired, and I just need to figure out exactly which variables to tweak to get what I need.
