Self Forming Loops

And if we thought the behaviour is limited to some peculiarity in bead chains, think again. Watch the rope forming a loop in the y direction as the line accelerates into speed in x direction, in this clip http://dsc.discovery.com/tv-shows/mythbusters/videos/tablecloth-pull-angle-1.htm from around 00...

Self Forming Loops

Hi Self siphoning beads have been referenced on the board before. I thought it might be interesting to post this link http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dYBNKSMvXr0 though. Maybe it gives one small step closer to our understanding of line inertia and loop behaviour. Interesting, there is also a pushback...

The unit in the moviemaker is in seconds Gordy! I timed with a stopwatch a few times over fairly extended periods and then even longer hitting the mouse button and stopwatch simultaneously and the two correlate, give or take a few hundreds of a second through error between two different fingers. Rea...

Gordy I checked again. From 0:20 to 0:40 for instance was six advance clicks of the mouse on the Windows Movie Maker. If that's any help. It seemed some frames didn't advance between single clicks, which probably depends on the frame rate of the recordings and/or the interleaving thing you mentioned...

I see a similar number of solid lines on your plots which would imply an interval of around .04 seconds between them since I would expect the time to make a forward cast would be in the same ball park for Stefan and Fredrik as it was for Tim. _____ I do not have any videos of casters using a 170 di...

Slander indeed. Sorry Vince I did not mean to badmouth Blobfish. He's kind of cute. Just conveying what the papers said.

Only a pleasure guys!

Vince, I've been wondering what creature your avatar was, then saw a chance article on the BLOBFISH having been recently voted the world's ugliest animal.

All the best,
