A Word from Board Administration about this Thread
Janus20, aka Alan Cresswell, is so obviously a loon and provides so much entertainment value that there will be little effort from moderators at reining in his behavior. Anyone who becomes a target and takes it seriously should question their own sanity, but in any case don't come crying to board administration.

Re: A Word from Board Administration about this Thread
I remember my old password now but.........forum campers appear to be horrified that you have withdrawn your protection. They no longer wish to talk and are climbing apple trees elsewhere.

I will try to rescue the situation for you.

You might be aware that Physicists have stated that a bumblebee cannot fly because it does not have the muscular power for lift off.

I know that the creature operates a 'free lunch'.

It rides the CENTRIFUGAL FORCE of spinning spheres of air beneath its alternating twin wing action. The wings create forward, backward or a hover ACTION and the bee mass rides the larger CF REACTION.

If you can give me a typical bee mass, wing beat rate and wing span.
I will send you the hover force value in Newtons.

If I Google the data you will accuse me of rigging the calcs and it would appear to justify your proclamation of my loonyShipness.

Re: A Word from Board Administration about this Thread
Heh, I might not be entirely sane in posting here. But, I'm not climbing any apple trees. I just missed your return as I was away at a conference, and have been busy writing papers that are accepted in scientific journals. If I manage to find a bit of spare time in the next week or so, I may have a look at your thinned down site and see if it takes account of the assorted criticisms of the old one that were posted here.

I thought the rules had already been relaxed on this thread anyway?

Alan Cresswell (the not-quite-so-loony one)

How do I miss this beauty?

You are replying to yourself like a seperate person?

How strong the meds you are on?

Yes CK they are two separate people who happen to have the same name.

deep apologies
opps....for shame.. I've just checked out the start of the thread and seen my mistake - deep deep apologies.

It's sad to say,however, that it's so normal to see people argue with themselves on the net - that I make that assumption in error.

Again deep apologies.
