    So is that "lying" in bed, as in being in a horizontal position and preparing for sleep? Or "lying" as in "honey- you won't believe what we're doing tonight, and it will be even better than last month."?


    Sorry, I didn't read far enough, I understand the "lying" in bed thing.

    The technical max. speed will be technically unlimited ;) but I would suspect real world speeds to exceed 245.34MPH in a level area so I would use at least 5-6 layers thus giving you a decent safety factor.

    EDIT: Of course this assumes travel perpendicular to the earths rotating plane of axis... so you will obviously experience greater or less than greater speeds traveling along said axis :)

    EDIT2: Make sure you calculate in the derate of the 100MPHTape of 10percent per layer when figgering max. allowable hysteresis of tape elongation in the stretch factor with regards to stickum strength!!!

    If you add the critical velocity hundred mile an hour suspenders. ( best when applied directly to skin...)

    Now on to other bigger small issues, Was questioned as to when rock becomes stone or Stone Quarry products as Crushed Rock become Stone and when Rock in General is listed as stone or is it that being stoned is the only way to rock this?
    Falls in same guidelines as difference between a Lake and Pond. Been explained a Lake is a Large Pond and a Pond is a Small Lake, just trying to establish variables and fixations!!

    Does anyone remember the formula for figuring the appropriate amount of 100 MPH tape to use for higher speeds with better aerodynamics due to a lower coefficient of friction? It was something to do with the stickiness of the tape per square inch multiplied by the accelerated acceleration factor divided by the square root of pie multiplied by the coefficient of friction. Where is Red Green when you need him.

    If you use camo gorilla tape the coefficient is 0√∑infinity as it disappears against the backdrop, therefore making it seamless as well as slicker than snot on a doorknob mixed with owl$hit.

    French can't get anyone, all you have to do is whisper "germans on the hill" and every one of them has a hankerchief in the air.

    My daughter is in her third year of french in high school, and I don't even live in canada. :rolleyes:

    Of course all my french comes from pepe le puw

    If you play the bagpipes you will keep the Neo Nazi's at bay too.

    Remember... The French Invented the cross ventabular theory of aggregate relation hypothesis mathematics in relation to the cosine offset physics which are commonly know as regression Dynamics in transportation equations.

    Hey guys is it possible to copy and paste from another thread
    If so the reply's for the Volvo A40 thread would fit right in here
