  1. Concave I would expect from experience with similar kites. Wouldn't it effect the shape detrimentally otherwise? Is there a possibility 10 is on the upper side, but the 8s underneath?
  2. That is equivalent to claiming no force is required. If unbalanced forces are already present, it's already accelerating.
  3. Sorry Mordred. That simply is not true. Unless by "correct amount" you mean anything greater than none at all. There is no minimum requirement.
  4. How about 1% of revenues? Harder to hide market share than profits and multi-National Corporations pretty much control where their profits show up...to the lowest bidder in terms of taxes.
  5. Pulling on my bootstraps...can't seem to pull with 240# of force...so still on the ground...
  6. If you can prove any "magic", it is then called science. So the answer is no, until proven otherwise...and then no again.
  7. Wow...so you're saying they've done it more than once? Now I'll read the OP and the article...
  8. Law of gravity...though I'm probably only looking at the "upside" of the changes I'd make...
  9. I guess the assumption would be that it isn't a rigid body.
  10. It can't be described by a single vector. If the body was expanding away from some central point (and say, each point proportionally to the distance from that point) the vector concept can help describe it. Each vector would point in one direction.
