Re: Escape from Raptors

The Zen raptors know how to find something without looking for it, so they find and eat you. I summon a raptor-proof force field to protect myself. The force field maintains itself as long as a certain radioactive atom does not decay. According to the many worlds theory, I will only observe the circ...

Re: stepping through paper

Even better! Cut the paper through its thickness (z axis, looking at the biggest face), from one edge almost to the other. This will allow you to unfold it like a book, producing a new sheet, the surface area of whose widest face is a little than double that of the uncut sheet, with a small ...

A more precise statement of the problem would ask the reading on the scale when the rope is lifted so that there is no tension at the very bottom of the rope. An ideal one-pound rope would experience one pound of tension at the very top, decreasing as you move down the rope. The answer is still the ...
