The wife couldn't believe i watched this as i was tucking down my mornin' porridge.
We are a hard lot aren't we.
Always gets me when nurses go "yuck how do you do feet", yeah right, vomit, diarrhoea, fistulas!
"potholer54"... poor excuse for a "hero"... anyway, whatever rocks one's boat I suppose .
On a different tangent - here is an educational video ... maybe we can formulate a Podiatry Arena alternative ... maybe to further confuse that breed of runner who seems to get so much Arena attention & who succumb to any naturalistic persuasion to propagate misguided/misinterpreted science... including going "bare" as a panacea for all running related woes (if you get my drift ).
I give you the Retroincabulator...
It's surprising the amount of videos posted on this thread which now isn't available for viewing anymore.
And I love one of the comments to this clip on Youtube:
"Here's why this is such bull****. If you want to prevent side-fumbling, any competent engineer worth his salt knows that you need tri-lateral dehypothecranyon while supplying a high level of current to the bi-directional tertiary generator. Otherwise your stators will go into a state of hypothermic failure and you run the risk of rupturing the main encabulator's ability to replenish its supply of dynamic phase resistors. You know what happens then genius? Try explaining to your boss why he need"

I'm a big fan of the retro-encabulator spoof so it was a great surprise to have the actor in the video, Mike Kraft, respond to my plea for more information.
Here is the "Retroincabulator" video transcription:
Here at Rockwell Automation’s world headquarters, research has been proceeding to provide a line of automation products that establishes a new standard for quality, technological leadership, and operational excellence. With customer success as our primary focus, work has been proceeding on the crudely conceived idea of an instrument that would not only provide inverse reactive current, for use in unilateral phase detractors but would also be capable of automatically synchronizing cardinal grammeters. Such an instrument, comprised of Dodge gears and bearings, Reliance electric Motors, Allen Bradley controls, and all monitored by Rockwell software is Rockwell Automation’s retro-incabulator.
Now basically, the only new principal involved is that instead of power being generated by the relative motion of conductors and fluxes its produced by the modial interaction of magneto reluctance, and capacitive duractance. The original Machine had a base plate of prefamulated amulite surmounted by a malleable logarithmic casing in such a way that the two sperving bearings run a direct line with the panametric fam.
The lineup consists simply of six hydrocopic marzel vanes so fitted to the ambiphasient lunar wang shaft that side fumbling was effectively prevented. The main winding was of the normal lotazode deltoid type placed in panendermic simi-boloid slots of the stator. Every seventh conductor being connected by a non-reversable tremi pipe to the differential gurdel spring on the up end of the grammeters. Moreover, whenever fluorescent score motion is required, it may also be employed in conjunction with a drawn reciperocation dingle arm to reduce sinusoil depleneration. The retro-incabulator has now reached a high level of development and its being successfully used in the operation of milferd trenyas. Its available soon, wherever Rockwell automation products are sold.
Hi Mark, I thought about your question for a while. I must admit, you have every right to name a "hero" of whom you see fit. Yet, "hero" is a subjective term (I think we can both agree on that)... what you deem a "hero" could be quite different to what I would classify as a "hero". We also may have different standards on the qualities of someone who should attract "hero" status. I suppose I could stop on this point alone but this issue deserves a bit more clarification.
It is interesting that we humans seem to have some void inside of us that seem to attract a need for a hero... to gravitate towards a champion of a cause. I feel a hero is not just someone you simply admire or respect... or has an "informed/educated" opinion which supports one’s world view. A hero is a very distinct person (i.e. one who has acted great service to humanity without expectation of material gain & sometimes at personal risk). Obviously you resonate with the views exclaimed by the individual in question within his videos. Whilst I may agree with some of his points (in that particular video cited i.e. "Global Change" – of which parts of the series was well put together), I have come across many I don’t agree with (i.e. based on science & logic). But let’s face it, when all said & done... they are just his opinions (which doesn’t constitute as fact) within just videos on YouTube. Beside the fact that I may find some of his opinions either shallow &/or biased/ignorant/cynical/contradicting, I feel individuals expressing any personal views in videos should also accomplish actions which show exceptional qualities (i.e. courage, bravery, upholds integrity/truth) before they can attract hero status... but like I said in the post in question... "whatever rocks one’s boat I suppose". Having said this, I probably should have kept my personal view of your choice of "hero" to myself – be that as it may; it’s just that I think you can obtain a more worthy hero than that.
P.S... I purposely haven’t directly cited material I have issue with from this individual, as to do so would further propagate such fallacies & potentially send this thread in a direction that the thread starter didn’t intend. However, I will say that the intricate physics he interestingly outlined in the "Climate Change" video should at least leave him to be open to an alternative position to their ultimate causation & subsequent purpose. That said, we should be both thankful that the topic of "Climate Change" is at least allowed to have more than one alternative hypothesis/theory open for consideration/investigation... for hence the potential for greater enlightenment to occur. I must also thank you Mark for bringing this topic up, as the topic of "Global Change" (with the subsequent science & scientist interpretation either side of the debate) is (ironically) a great comparative analogy to another topic of interest (well, for me at least).
All the best.
I can’t help but wonder if the causative factors/physics (i.e. solar irradiance) that affect global climate could also have an effect on radio isotopes? (& hence the bankrupt conjecture of uniformitarianism)... & at 7-8min. at video 5 of the series – there is an answer :-). Has there been a case of "bad science" within the "Climate Change" topic... well according to the videos – apparently so.
Just came across this video today. Has some very interesting points... worth pondering over...
... then came across this one, by the same publisher - "vsauce". Being that right at this very moment you are on the internet, probably on a computer of sorts... the following stats may be of interest to you...
I'm a Star Wars fan (even have Star Wars models in my lounge room i.e. X-Wing, TIE Fighter, Snowspeeder ). I was a bit too young when Star Wars - Episode 4 (which was the 1st instalment - Star Wars fans know what I mean) came out in 1977. When Empire Strikes Back - Episode 5 came out (1980) I was taken to the cinema for my birthday only to be turned away as the ticket line went down the street & around the corner.
Yet I was captured by the scope & imagination of the films which was inspiring. I recently found a fascinating documentary on Star Wars which is in itself inspiring as it reveals the extent of scope & imagination that actually occurred & was needed behind the scenes. The degree of adversities that had to be overcome & the belief in one's (George Lucas) vision to finish the project makes for really interesting viewing for Star Wars fans... as well as those who may not have not got it... yet .
I've only got up to part 10 & there looks to be at least 13 or 14 parts. Here is part 1 to get the ball rolling... happy viewing over the weekend!...
