The Rabbit cornering and the Fuller static test both show that the rear wheel should trail the outer wheel.



I have three four-legged stools, but not a tripod.

A rabbit lifting it's rear wheel while braking into a corner says nothing about how a trike would react in the same situation.

The real world is more than static tests.

For an idea of what it takes to get a reverse trike up on two wheels.

Moderate speed under acceleration and at 1:00 ...



Or this Slingshot. Smooth pavement and too much speed. A normal car would just spin but once the Slingshot swaps ends - over it goes. (some mild swearing at the end)

There is a cottage industry churning out dual wheel kits for the Slingshot

Don't know why that fella tried to brace the vehicle by throwing his arm out to catch it. Reminds me of the girl in high school who wrecked every race. During one of her wrecks she rolled the car (a reverse trike) and broke her fingers when she put her arms outside of the cage.

So don't stand on the brakes if your going backward. Sounds reasonable.* I'll see your Police Spyder and raise a Messerschmit K-200.

youtu.be/InlFaERcPeA?t=42

It's funny every time. But your video does make a case for easier training.

Well, here's an interesting thing. It appears to be a Mark Murphy shell with pontoon fenders, but it's from Germany. Probably splash-copied like the Myers Manx.

It's an electric/human hybrid, the K-25e


Quote:
The Messerschmitt KR 25-E has hydraulic disc brakes
Achim Adlfinger obtained the official license for the Messerschmitt name
The Messerschmitt KR 25-E features joystick-controlled rear-wheel steering
The Messerschmitt KR 25-E weighs a claimed 85 kg (187 lb)
The Veloschmitt was a two-seater velomobile, the latter term referring (more or less) to a recumbent tricycle enclosed in an aerodynamic body.
[snip]
Adlfinger says that the KR 25-E is now being produced by French velomobile company iDMOOVE, and is priced at €12,800 (about US$14,308). A larger and faster KR 45-E model is in the works, along with the pure-electric KR 200.

Sources: iDMOOVE, Messerschmitt-Werke
And here's another one, the KR-2000. I like the stance:


*Clutch in, steer only.

When Dad passed away it sure seemed like several doctors and a huge hospital were liable, but our attorneys kept saying that up here we would have Native Americans on our jury, and they always side with doctors, so lawsuits depend on who is on the jury.

Jury selection is always an important part of each episode of "Bull," but that is a weird show. Funny how they picked this actor:

...to portray a character based on this guy:

I understand that he has a PhD and two successful shows, but he always reminds me of Dave Ramsey with a bit of redneck in him.

Well, it is Doug's thread.

We're in medicines infancy. We have a way better understanding of physics, chemistry, electronics, mechanics, etc than biology.

We are delivering 2nd "booster" doses of Covid vaccines when some people (most) haven't had their first. Idiots can figure out that's dumb, but that's how medicine is practiced. We use analytics to attempt to gain a stock market advantage, but it's hardly used in medicine where it would be highly effective. Why isn't AI highly leveraged in medicine? Why should we be relying on the collective experience/inexperience of a single individual rather than all data points and massive and cheap compute power?

My grandfather went in to the hospital with a broken leg and left in a body bag due to infections mostly only found in hospitals (C Diff). Hospitals is where people go to die. Mostly they are there to comfort you as nature takes its course, and occasionally they can help.

Had it also been the case in Brazil, it wouldn't surprise me to see UTVs more often. There were times when ATVs and UTVs had been imported as agricultural machinery in order to pay a lower import duty, and even though it's not so usual to get tractors registered to be driven on public roads I have already seen even a forklift licensed.

Would be quite cool to make a Gurgel BR-800 replica out of an UTV

Is it one of those cases where nobody has seen Doug and Xist at the same time?

GTP-3 isn't that old. But you just have to ask a properly framed question.

GPT-3
Generative Pre-trained Transformer 3 is an autoregressive language model that uses deep learning to produce human-like text. It is the third-generation language prediction model in the GPT-n series created by OpenAI, a San Francisco-based artificial intelligence research laboratory. Wikipedia

My little brother passed in that immense UofO hospital on top of a hill in Portland, surrounded by teenaged female intern nurses.

I am sorry for your loss.

I think that I would be happy to be surrounded by teenage female interns--until I realized it was the last thing I would do.
