Thursday, January 31st, 2013

Question by Christmas Fan: Do most model airplane kit collectors buy the kits to assemble them or just to keep the kits as collectibles?
I am referring to the old kits from the 1960s, 70s and 80s (Airfix, Frog, Monogram, Revell, MPC, etc.).

Answer by Sophie B
Most people buy them to build them initially, but soon end up with way more than they can ever build in this lifetime….

What properties to gears give that make them beneficial?

Sunday, December 16th, 2012

Question by Just One Of The Billions: What properties to gears give that make them beneficial?
Other than achieving desired linear velocity or gear size, how do gears help? If you could make an electric motor (talking about small electric motors, r/c or airsoft sized) that directly puts out your desired linear velocity, what is the purpose of having gears? Is it just because to make an efficient motor of that size, it will have to be high-speed, low-torque, and gears are needed to reach necessary torque? If so, why can’t you just use one gear to convert the speed to torque?

Best answer:

Answer by Brian T
I guess you have to look at a torque curve of a motor vs a torque curve of what your source is outputting and a curve of what the recipient requires. If a gear train is needed between the source and the reciprient to match curves, it usually met with gears.

Question by dolphincutie: Do all the GeoTrax trains move on their own? Or does the child move them herself?
Hope that makes sense. I was given a track, but I need to get the train to go with it. So I am wondering if the train is electric or kid driven. Thank you!

Why do people keep using off topic info from a user’s profile against them in an argument esp. when losing?

Question by : Why do people keep using off topic info from a user’s profile against them in an argument esp. when losing?
I notice that in arguments especially in forums such as this one and armchair general forums,whenever people are in an argument one side will begin to search at the other user.

Here is one example example here is one between user Antwoin Dodson and Sailor Saturn.

http://answers.yahoo.com/question/index;_ylt=AlgdqQaB75PUkcGR37z1mWQjzKIX;_ylv=3?qid=20110102111908AAv3tpq

‘Antoine Dodsn:Jesus Christ.
Yes, list three bad missions and assume they fail at the rest of them. Notice how your only evidence is over 40 years old? Isn’t that something to think about.
Sailor Saturn:These are just 3 examples. I could post more but thats not the point of this question.What Iam asking is why Special forces don’t perform well in missions that conventional infantry such as USMC,Army Airborne, and even regular army infantry could do with such excellent performance such as large scale amphibious assaults or defending static positions!

Antoine Dodson then starts looking at Sailor Saturn’s user profile and begins using off topic info that had nothing to do with the thread against Sailor Saturn.

Antoine Dodson:Your profile explains everything. Male who loves Sailor Moon. I would love to see you in the military.

Edit:

Oh wait, you READ it. So you read about three failed missions and come on here saying they perform poorly. Go back to jerking it to Dragon Ball Z and sailor moon.

Edit:

Oh go ahead and copy and paste all your evidence kiddo. All you are doing is showing you are just an anime know it all who thinks he is so smart and that the US SOF/SF are failures. When was the last time you performed in combat?

PS: Khe Sanh was a clusterfuvk. No amount of training would have prevented it or those deaths. You are listing battles that were brutal. Stop insinuating that the SOF/SF can’t do their job.

Here is another example between Gobar G and 2th 4rd.Here is what happened.
http://answers.yahoo.com/question/index;_ylt=ArL9ChHzpTyDs.IQp2xPFjQjzKIX;_ylv=3?qid=20100208210640AAXM6lT
Gobar G-I notice that in martial arts universally is the importance of the meaning of discipline and training oneself up to the point Discipline is Permanently Second Nature to you and that you are a very well disciplined person..And I also notice this applies to ALL MARTIAL ARTS REGARDLESS of origins be it French,Brazilian,Japanese,Russian and Korean and regardless of style be it Sambo,Savate,Kung Fu,or Eskrima.

So what is the meaning of Discipline in martial arts?What is its purpose in martial arts?Why do all martial arts in the world EMPHASIZE DISCIPLINE FIRST ABOVE EVERYTHING ELSE?

2th4rd all of a sudden enters the thread and bashing Gobar G with off topic things.

You’re in a university??? I thought you’re graduating from high school soon??? I believe you lost that fight had it ever really happened…. I also believe you will never get into the 82nd not only because of your lack of discipline, integrity, honor, and initiative…. but the FACT that you retired from the Corps. and the Army!!! Whatever your endeavors are, YOU WILL FAIL!!!
