Countersteering

After some ridiculous huffing and puffing on my part, I did look up the physics of it.

Now I am even more confused.
Something about turning one way to go the other?

~

But, what if you go off course completely?
How do you get back on track?


By looking through the turns and never losing sight of whats important.

hmmmm.... poetic for you but I'm still recovring from having my dad use me as a class demonstration of gyroscopic force when I was a kid .... if you have any more physics questions you can always direct them twords him

Oh cool beans. Is that your dad? How nice. Explains your science lean then? My dad was a boxer, don't know what that explains.

Physics is hard.

I chopped this off his site. It sounds like something I would say to pretend I know what I am talking about. Making it up as you go along. This can't possibly actually mean something can it?

ICOSAHEDRAL POINT GROUPS*
Permutations of the vertices of an icosahedron under the action of the elements of the icosahedral point groups, the icosahedral point groups' multiplication tables, subgroups, sets of conjugate subgroups, centralizers and normalizers of arbitrary subsets and coset and double coset decompositions. See publication #56: "The Icosahedral Point Groups" by D.B. Litvin, Acta Cryst. (1991)

I once rode a bike in Mammoth that went the opposite direction you steered. It was a contest to see how far you could go. Crazy. That's the countersteering I know.

i'd probably be good at that
do they have a category for that at the otter?

just read the links
i can't concentrate on that kind of stuff when i'm sitting at my desk let alone when i'm riding my bike

Yup...thats really my dad, the hair is real, and he does play guitar and sing, but the jerry garcia outfit was for halloween....and believe it our not that all does mean something...its all about symmetry and crystals (all you people from SC dont get too excited, its not the kind of crystals with holistic healing powers)....

At least I know not to mouth off to queen bella ... I might get a right cross to the jaw ...

Wait. I think I understand now. I never took physics in school....ever. So, that explains why I suck at cornering so bad. I just don't understand them completely. Physics. Hmmmm. I wonder if the library is still open......

Helloooooo....the pie only has a shelf life of like 30 years...
