Laggy to load on my phone and computer.
Saw that too, when trying to load a page a little after 5pm.
There's a thread on the lag/server issues in Tech Support
It's Friday! This is legitimately a lot of fun
Do you stop when you can see through it?!
Mark's surname has a very interesting etymology. A very nice score on that one, Nathan
This one isn't thin, it's actually pretty stout.
A rope 80 feet long is fixed on top of 2 poles which are each 50 feet high. If these poles are pulled apart till the rope sags to 10 feet off the ground, how far are these poles from each other? Don't cheat by looking it up!
Clue: you won't need to know quadratic equations and things like Cosh and Sinh to work this one out!
This is a trick question not needing analysis of the catenary.
It can only sag to half its length if the distance between poles is zero.
mark is amazing. He is killing us over here... Wow
I should've disqualified you from participating because we hate on eggheads in here
Sorry, I tried to resist and do have important work to finish today, but it's too tempting.
A little while back I asked for insight in Stowa watches and thought I’d share my score:
You can’t tell from the picture, but the hands are blued but only glint blue at the right angle and in the right light. It’s a very subtle charm. Like most people, I justify all my expensive purchases by immediately loving them, but I truly think this one is a long-term winner. I knew guys here would have impeccable tastes; surely there is an overlap between passion for amazing knives and pretty much every other aspect of life.
Bingo. 80 foot rope; 40 foot sag; poles have to be on top of each other.
I don't know from watches, but that is one of the nicest ones to my eye I've seen
Originally posted a response in the thread that ^ came from, but thought it made more sense to take it here.
I saw your diagram and immediately thought of that scene with Charlie in It's Always Sunny.
These are a pain
I'm curious to see what this becomes.
Usually I associate keyholes with a metal bolster fitting a wooden handle...
