  1. Then hasn't he broken his creed. Mind you he has already broken his promise to all the women and children who do not shave themselves because they have no need to.
  2. After the movie comes the stage show and after the stage show "Trapeze on Ice" If friction is counted as minimal
  4. yes
  5. I'm here all day folks...
  6. There may be a way if during the upswing on the trapeze the acrobat lets go and circumscribes a perfect parabolic curve (much like performed by ballistics) and catches the next trapeze on the down swing. Couldn't be bothered doing the math (probably trig) to figure if it would actually gain a little more distance though.
  7. initial velocity 0? Gravity 9.8 ms2?
  8. Short of adding additional trapezi for an increase in 2 times the platform height with each one added I am at a loss for ideas.
  9. In capitalist America car push you In capitalist America you follow law
  10. My reading of the definition of a deity is that that have authority over some aspect of nature (or that they have absolute authority over everything). People tend have a limited form of authority but ideas do not, unless they prove to be the truth. Rich does not have a deity until such time as he can convincing prove to the observer that no deity exists. It is my understanding that this will be much harder to prove than proving I'm not currently eating gummy bears. This means it is very difficult (if not impossible) to prove that a paradox actually exists.
  11. I can too, but it involves tall acrobats (stilts maybe) who can varying their height (or somersault to above the bar) at the bottom of their swing. Extra meters could also be obtained if they can build up enough angular momentum (by swinging around and around the bar) during the swing to somersault when it reaches the apex. In other words it would be quite a show. Edit That or exchange the trapeze for a flying fox
  12. Is it just me or does this make perfect sense if you are 50 years old?
  13. As the trapeze platform is the same height is the the same as the axis of the rope, for a situation where the floor is level, the length of the ropes needs to be less than the height of the platform. This is to avoid the acrobat face-planting at the lowest point of their swing. This means that the maximum distance between platforms, to avoid falling would need to be less than the height * 4. However if the floor is indeed level you can have any distance you like between platforms and any size you like of ropes and cross puzzle land on foot from the base one platform to another. That is assuming that the acrobat can walk that distance on level ground without falling over.
  14. Dont forget the paths that start in the centre get to y and then come back Edit: forgot you cant use that "K" Twice :Doh
