Why are men so pleasantly fascinated by these things they call anemone ?
I can understand why they call them anemone, but Junior doesn't.
He won't be able to until he has worked 12 to 14 hour days, six and seven days a week 24/7 on call for 30 to 40 years.
Then Junior will understand.

I rode ~100,000 miles on bikes back in the day. Never was into hot-rodding my bikes like I've always done with my cars, though. Took my Yamaha XS500 up to ~125 MPH once, but the pucker-factor started to increase exponentially, so I backed-off. That's the fastest I've ever gone on 2 wheels. Didn't have that problem in my GN, with all of the suspension & handling upgrades. Wasn't really "up-on-the-wheel" until the high 160 MPH range. I think she would've broke 170 MPH if I would've stayed in it, but the front-end was starting to get light. Besides - the Mercedes was going backward @ ~163 MPH, so I had already won the race.

After watching a criminal on TV I came up with some career advice for him.
If the police are chasing you, run to the garbage dump and sit down. They'll never find you.

Lemma 1. All horses are the same colour (by induction).

Proof. It is obvious that one horse is the same colour. Let us
assume the proposition P(k) that k horses are the same colour
and use this to imply that k + 1 horses are the same colour.
Given the set of k + 1 horses, we remove one horse; then the
remaining k horses are the same colour, by hypothesis. We
remove another horse and replace the first; the k horses, by
hypothesis, are again the same colour. We repeat this until by
exhaustion the k + 1 sets of k horses have each been shown to
be the same colour. It follows then that since every horse is the
same colour as every other horse, P(k) entails P(k + 1). But
since we have shown P(l) to be true, P is true for all succeeding
values of k, that is, all horses are the same colour.



Theorem 1. Every horse has an infinite number of legs. (Proof by intimidation.)

Proof. Horses have an even number of legs. Behind they have
two legs and in front they have fore legs. This makes six legs,
which is certainly an odd number of legs for a horse. But the
only number that is both odd and even is infinity. Therefore
horses have an infinite number of legs. Now to show that this is
general, suppose that somewhere there is a horse with a finite number of legs.
But that is a horse of another colour, and by the lemma that does not exist.

Oh Langley devised the bolometer:
It's really a kind of thermometer
Which measures the heat
From a polar bear's feet
At a distance of half a kilometer.

Murphy's laws

GENERAL ENGINEERING

1. A patent application will be preceded by one week by a similar
application made by an independent worker.

2. The more innocuous a design change appears, the further its
influence will extend.

3. All warranty and guarantee clauses become void on payment
of invoice.

4. An important Instruction Manual or Operating Manual will
have been discarded by the Receiving Department.

MATHEMATICS

5. Any error that can creep in, will. It will be in the direction that
will do most damage to the calculation.

6. All constants are variables.

7. In a complicated calculation, one factor from the numerator
will always move into the denominator.

PROTOTYPING AND PRODUCTION

8. Any wire cut to length will be too short.

9. Tolerances will accumulate unidirectionally towards maximum
difficulty of assembly.

10. Identical units tested under identical conditions will not be
identical in the field.

11. If a project requires n components, there will be (n i)
units in stock.

12. A dropped tool will land where it can do most damage; the
most delicate component will be the one to drop. (Also known as
the principle of selective gravity.)

13. A device selected at random from a group having 99 per cent
reliability will be a member of the 1 per cent group.

14. A transistor protected by a fast-acting fuse will protect the
fuse by blowing first.

15. A purchased component or instrument will meet its specifica-
tions long enough, and only long enough, to pass Incoming
Inspection.

16. After an access cover has been secured by 16 hold-down
screws, it will be discovered that the gasket has been omitted.

After studying your system hardware, software, and firmware, I decided your system needs one more element, elseware.

Yeah - but when you're on the "aft leg" of the circuit, you're only going ~480 MPH or so....
