Re: a "Let\'s argue" thread

I'm back... again!! haven't been drinking this time so I'll be good! [img]images/icons/wink.gif[/img]

That would be 2 places if you are back to the exact same set of foot prints (in the snow) that you started walking from... North pole and South Pole! If I read your wording correctly you didn't specify which order the north, east, and south had to walked so it would be both poles.
If you have to do it in the same order specified... 1... South Pole.

did I do good Dave... did I? huh huh?

hey I didn't mis-spell anything and I didn't cuss... yet either. [img]images/icons/grin.gif[/img]

Re: a "Let\'s argue" thread

Here's one to chew on..

The earth is soft and spinning, mostly made of fluid material, so the diameter through the equator is longer than the diameter through the poles.

Sort of like a spinning water balloon.

Re: a "Let\'s argue" thread


Good to see you're out of that corner again.

"walk a mile north, then a mile east then a mile south " must be in this order.

Care to change you answer? You said if in order it'd be 1 location!

You're a thinker I believe but take a little more time and stay off the moonshine. [img]images/icons/wink.gif[/img]


Sphere... now you did it...

Spheroid, ellipsoid and now apparently geoid...whew... see why we called it round.



Open your eyes while going to work...is it still black or gray? Could be a Texas thing! [img]images/icons/wink.gif[/img]


Okay...we got that and I've never heard it put like that.


What is the speed of a stationary (relative to the earth's surface) body on the surface of the earth at the equator? How about a object at 45 north (or south) and for bonus points... an object just 1 mile north (or south) of the equator? In kilometers per hour or statute mile per hour or nautical miles mile per hour (please specify).

(My guess is that S1 won't have too much trouble with this one.)

Re: a "Let\'s argue" thread

Here's one for you.
If you're in the back of a truck going 60 MPH, ( probabily a Chevy, 'cause a Ford won't go that fast! HeHE), and a deer runs behind the truck during the season, and your bow launches an arrow at 325 FPS. Will you hit it????
..... or will the arrow drop straight down???

That should keep you busy for a few minutes.

$$#@, &!@%, F#@&.
I'll go sit in the corner now.
C'ya. John.

Re: a "Let\'s argue" thread

60 mph is 88 fps.

speed is relative..

Speed 325 fps away from from the bow (opposite as I understand from the travel of the Chev truck), over the earth speed is 325 - 88 or 237 fps. You now have an arrow traveling 237 fps... I don't know which direction the deer is running so I'll say 90 degrees to the travel of the truck...you'll shoot behind it or more correctly, behind your intended point of impact. Just a guess on my part.

In Steve's words..."did I do good Wyojeepeer... did I? huh huh?"
