OK, here is a wreck answer.
They would be parallel if it could be measured by a fifty foot rule from Lee
Valley. (Rob Lee, here is an idea for you next April 1st tool)
BTW how parallel is string anyway? Any horizontal measurement of a vertical
string would change its position.
If we are going to split hairs then:
The error from the theoretical parallels would vary both with altitude
and location on the globe.
A geodesic error will cause different errors on the two strings as the
earth is not a perfect sphere.
I am going from the standpoint that the centre of the base (at 25
feet) is at a perfect 90-degrees to the line running to the centre of
the planet. The errors to that line will be different for each bob.
Thought I'd clarify my position.
Not only that, but you would certainly need to do gravity meter surveys to
insure that the gravity field is equivalent at both locations prior to
embarking upon any calculations.
You can't be too careful ...
assuming you can freeze the measuments in time so not to be exposed to
planetary rotational pendulum forces which ALL plumbobs have a problem
with. The farking things just never hold still. I understand bourbon
has a stabilizing influence on planetary rotational sidewalk-in-the-
A glorious weekend so far.. no work in the shop for me. Angela and our
daughter are off to Birch Run MI (Between Flint & Saginaw) where there
are ONE HUNDRED A FIFTY FACTORY OUTLETS, DAD!!!
I put a little something in Angela's birthday card yesterday (the big
40) and they're OUTTA HERE!!..LOL.
*whispers* And I'm off to see if Dave Eisan has any good deals on a
General table saw....
That was easy....LOL
Way to go ... quite reigns! Or does it?
No gig's this weekend! I'm off to sit on the porch with a glass of wine and
visit with a band mate to go over the latest roughs from the new CD project,
then walk around the corner to the park to sit on the grass and listen to a
string quartet in the gazebo ... it should be a beautiful, cool evening here
in H town.
And tomorrow night we'll see how many red 3's Leon can gather up in a game
or two of "Hand 'n Foot". ;)
4 decks of regular cards (Canasta style) or a fancy schmancy dedicated
I'm a Euchre kinda fella myself. I like the speed.
I had a small bout with bridge, but that you have to play all the
time, me thinks.
How about "66"? Uses a Euchre deck.
Bridge is OK, but if you want a cut throat game, give me 3 handed
Hearts if 4 players, the military version of double deck pinochle.
Throw out the "9"s, 50 to open, 20 meld minimum, 20 tricks minimum to
save, 500 for game.
If you are after blood, $0.10/point.
