Re: Escape the Frictionless Circle

Last gasp Consider the point at which the rope is at 40m out. During that period, the gold block with the rope wrapping around it, is storing energy. As the rope is not wrapping around you, the total energy is in your spin and not in the spin and momentum. The gold block will have slowed as it would...

Re: Escape the Frictionless Circle

More: As stated, when the rope is spilled out by 40m, you negate any spin momentum by spinning on the spot, moving the rope end from hand to hand. The momentum at the other end is the spin in the block and the directional momentum from where you pushed it. Consider now that the energy on you is a ze...

Re: Escape the Frictionless Circle

More Info: You negate the spin by turning yourself. You keep turning on the spot, but the gold continues to unravel the rope. You have to keep passing the rope around you as you slowly drift, following the gold block. Momentum still exists in you turning on the spot, that momentum is simply NOT appl...

Re: Escape the Frictionless Circle

Initial thoughts are: Push the block of gold away from you, but apply a spin to it. Assume that your weight is 100kg and the gold block is 150kg and that the spin is sufficient that the rope will wrap around the gold block as it moves away from you, to the extent that 10m of the rope ends up wrapped...

EDIT: Just looked back to see if there was a more recent score.
I had seen that Lazar had closed the gap a lot and now I find they have exceeded me.

Well done.
The game is yours and this is my last post in this thread.

Re: Discworld Mafia: Day Two: Deadline Friday 4PM GMT

True, I can't vote, but if they vote me, nothing happens, they can't NK me, so it's down to the Scum NKing the Indy, leaving me and Scum.
Scum can't win by Vote, can't win by NK.
Town cannot win by NK, but if Scum don't vote, a tie is RANDOMED.


YAY, Town win.

Well thanks for the attempt, who ever it was. Ain't read spoilers, so still in the game and unkillable. Yes I am Town, although the character would be considered Indy. I targeted Madge last night, but got no result. I have no vote, but if we get 1 more Scum, the game is ours! Cos 1 Scum + 1 Indy + 1...
