    Ha ha. Don't beat yourself up too bad. That thingy that goes inside a tyre has been known all my life to me as a wheel turns out to be a rim, according to some young fella that corrected my use of terminology. I'll be ready next time when i try & explain that a rim is the circumference of a wheel. Should be fun.

    We always called these wheels.

    For some unknown reason they call these rims. :D

    Well... science fiction-y:



    I support research and development of circles. We must not let the Russians get ahead of us in circle technology!

    Wow super-flashback... I visited that place when I was very young. They gave me a small poster, I think it was the first color picture of Earth from orbit or something. I kept it for decades. I don't remember what became of it. It had to have been a print of this:

    Wow 2 I did search on that image. This is weird, how can you sell this image at auction? I had a print of this, I'm sure I was only one of many. Or did I lose track of a valuable print? I'll never know.

    https://www.imaging-resource.com/ne...photo-of-earth-from-space-sold-off-at-auction

    At the time, it was a photo unlike anything most people had seen before: a complete color shot of the Earth from space, looking like the giant "blue marble" we've come to know it as. The rare photo, which was captured by a NASA satellite on November, 5, 1967, was recently sold off to the highest bidder at a London auction house.

    The photo, a 10 ¾ x 11 ½- inch print on Kodak paper, sold at Bloomsbury's London auction house for 2,600 pounds sterling (approximately US$4200) on December 12th.

    The whole purpose of that activity was to trick us. I knew that going in. So when I saw that there was only one shock, I thought I found the secret and stopped looking for tricks. Lesson learned.

    That's cool but as for myself, I'm more into right angles. :p

    That certainly clears things up! I never knew about the six hydrocoptic marzleveins. You learn so much on this site.



    They should have used propane! And propane accessories.

    But
    I live here

    Maybe Alexa needed another robot to talk to to work out the question.

    Pretty much.
    RP-1 is highly refined kerosene. Mix it with LOx and it goes kaboom.
    That video is from the much smaller Saturn-I.
    The Saturn-V S-1C first stage had five fuel lines the size of your head JUST to deliver the LOx, and another five to deliver the RP-1.

    The fuel/oxidizer inlets are at the upper right. Note the "little" man...

    I have narrowed it down. It's either:
    1. angular momentum, or
    2. fat-bottomed girls.
