vossiewulf: President Merkin Muffley: Resonance did not cause the Tacoma Narrows disaster. Aeroelastic Flutter was the term you were looking for.

Aeroelastic flutter is a form of resonance. A positive feedback mechanism reinforces the motion at the natural resonance frequency for the fluttering element (wing/tail/bridge). Watch the bridge again, the amplitude continually increases until it catastrophically fails, while the frequency remains consistent. That's resonance.


^exactly, its a driven oscillator, and you muffley are a coont.

In Wellington there is a stadium, which the locals have dubbed the "Cake Tin".

I'm hoping the stadium you pictured is called the "T.V. Dinner".


I think they just call it the Metrodome. It doesn't usually look like that though, that was a couple of years ago when the dome collapsed under the weight of a bunch of snow.

Jedekai: untaken_name: 0Icky0: Something to show your creationist uncle who imagines that order cannot arise without divine direction.

Er, if there is a creator, wouldn't that creator be responsible for the laws of physics? I mean, how would order arising from a divinely-designed system of laws be order without divine direction?

/That's why you can't really win that argument with logic

Which is more logical:

Everything came from nothing caused by something. (Theism)

or

Everything came from something caused by nothing. (Atheism)

or

Something came from something caused by something. (Agnosticism)

How's this: There is no ultimate meaning of "life" other than the propagation of your species.


Then we agree on the facts. The rest is just the metaphyscial dogma you use to justify your own existance in the abscence of God.

With all those feeding into the system would a large group on a moveable platform run longer than a single metronome on a solid table? I would imagine the trick to that being starting all of them at the same swing distance.

Shadow Blasko: Lukeonia1: Shadow Blasko: Just sent that to all my OCD friends.

Between the metronomes,and the colors... they will watch it all night

I know I've been watching it for the last hour. Although, I think I would have arranged the colors symmetrically.

It's interesting the way the synchronization starts in the back left corner, spreads to the right, and then back toward the left along the front. Also cool is that one on the far right that got caught up in a metastable opposing state, until all the rest of them got good and synchronized and gave it the bump it needed to get it in line.

/not a physics geek
//staring

I may or may not have timed the avg rate of synchronization for each column and row... ;)


When there was just one little guy left, out of phase with all the others, I nearly reached for my screen in an attempt to flick him in line with the others.

Jedekai: Everything came from nothing caused by a pre-existing self created God. (Theism)

or

Everything came from something caused by some effect of physics which is not a pre-existing self created entity. (Atheism)

or

Maybe everything came from something possibly caused by something unknowable (not excluding the pre-existing self created god). (Agnosticism)


Now it is phrased properly, which makes more sense?

Philosophy isn't hard, folks.

Also, the meaning of life:

Theism: We live to serve God and obey Him.

Atheism: Life is pointless; a fluke of chemistry with no purpose or function beyond self-propagation. Human achievement is ultimately meaningless, our legacy being how many species we took with us. We will persist in a doomed universe until we are either wiped out (likely) or our universe experiences heat-death.

Agnostic: I like bacon; bacon is good.

Now, don't observe the metronomes and see if the results are different.
Because!
The laws of quantum mechanics state the observer alters the experiment, right?
