Maybe he finally managed to open up a hole in the space-time contiuum using his theories on rotational inertia or the speed of light or the nature of multidimensional string universes or dark matter or something.

He'll be back with an amazing story about how beings on the far side of the Milky Way live.

He just hasn't posted recently. His last thread was Aug 24, OT a picture of infinity.

Do you have any more copies of AEP? Had a fellow a few days ago looking for one. http://forums.ubi.com/eve/forums/a/tpc/f/23110283/m/3721078874

I sold out unfortunately Steve, And stopped restocking when the DVD came out... Have posted a link to Amazon for him too, but the prices on it are stupid.

Summer holidays? People actually do things in summer. I've heard.

Never fear, Biscuit Knight is here!

*hands out biscuits*

Munch on this thought: on planes with podded engines, why not use the connecting piece between the engine and the wing as a vertical stabiliser?

He had an accident during an experiment with a particle accelerator, a fairy cake and an elastic band.

He is now in an unknown dimension living contentedly as a small furry mammal.

Because you would simply end up with a biplane and you still need a tailplane, the tailplane is there to balance out the lift of the wings

6.2 Horizontal stabiliser
In section 4.7 we established that the position of the centre of pressure changes with angle of attack and produces a pitching moment making the wing inherently unstable and thus requiring a countering moment about the lateral axis to make the aircraft longitudinally stable. ( We will discuss stability in detail in the next module ). To overcome this problem we need to provide another moment of force about the lateral axis, but acting in the opposite direction, which will equal the wing pitching moment at most speeds but which is also capable of being changed to initiate aoa changes. As the moment of a force is the arm multiplied by the force then the longer the arm the smaller the force required. The standard solution is to extend the body structure, the fuselage, rearwards so that a horizontal stabiliser can be mounted at a distance from the cg €" although there are some advantages in mounting the stabiliser in front of the wing: this latter arrangement is called a canard.

This longitudinal stabiliser may be a small wing with the cambered surface underneath, so that the lift force acts in the opposite direction to the lift from the mainplane, or more often a symmetrical aerofoil, or even just a flat plate, mounted at a negative aoa to produce the same effect: we will expand on this in the longitudinal stability section of the next module. The end result is that the combined pitching moment from the mainplane and stabiliser is normally zero.

You know, Raaid isn't the only one who can think outside the box. Just the other day I was considering all of the ways we measure houses- square feet, number of bathrooms and bedrooms, etc.. But does anyone ever think about how much a house weighs? So how much does your house weigh? Try asking some realtor that!

And atoms! Think about it, atoms are mostly empty space. You're made of atoms, so's most everthing else. So most everything is mostly empty space. Thus, all that you need to do to walk through walls or other objects is to line up your atoms with the atoms in the wall so that everything justs passes by. Sure, it might be a little complicated to sync up all those atoms and there's those problems with nuclear forces and the like, but it's solvable, no?

enjoy your fix...
