Checkie will be getting himself all excited over the prospect of electric string ;-)
Bangers!
You must have known I was coming!

Two things I avoid at all costs - horses and electricity. Horses are dangerous at both ends and uncomfortable in the middle. While electricity is just plain dangerous.

Where speed machines are concerned, aerodynamics I'm comfortable with. Structures, fine. Electric-isity-thingy, of any description ... no!

There are bits of our boat with FATAL stencilled on them. What they have in common is that they are black and have wires sticking out of them.

I don't even want to know how they work!

I have a deep mistrust of anything that does something without any moving parts, elastic-trickery being my least favourite of them all, but Checkie seems to have no fear of it whatsoever. Give me a flat sheet of tin and ask for a sponson nose and I'll set-to with great gusto and confidence but things with wires are scary as Hell.

Just as well we have a Checkie!

Generous words indeed from the "Metal Whisperer" who regularly astounds me by doing things with metal (any metal) that seem to defy the laws of Physics in many cases.

Give me elastic-trickery any time :-)

Hmm - thought provoking. In order to work smarter it's necessary to work in the first place but does the sheer amount of effort and ingenuity that goes into being bone bloody idle count as work? Going to keep me awake, is this one. :lol:

These equations might help.

You will note from this that it is possible to expend energy and leave a system with no net work done.
