  2. https://study.com/academy/lesson/understanding-the-center-of-mass-center-of-gravity.html Center of mass and center of gravity are two terms that are often used interchangeably, but they're really not the same. The center of mass is the mean position of the mass in an object. Then there's the center of gravity, which is the point where gravity appears to act. But for our purposes, essentially the same.
  3. -33c video, incredible, thanks for posting.
  4. Center of mass in a body will not change. Center of gravity of a body can change. Yes, foot positioning will affect/determine the range of the body's center of gravity.

  6. There would be breakthrough cases of vaccinated people who contract and die from covid. Deaths of famous people are reported. Deaths of non famous people generally not reported unless for noteworthy reasons. Data from the worldwide, population size, mass vaccination of millions would be incredibly valuable. It would be picking up the possible 'one in a million(s)' adverse events that were not be possible in the sample size, trials of approximately 30k participants. Think the data would be collecting information on non vaccinated and v
  7. The Patrolmen's Benevolent Association of the City of New York, a large NYPD union, gives out cards to officers to distribute to friends and family, giving them preferential treatment for minor offenses. The cards are commonly referred to as "get out of jail free" cards. The cards are designed to be presented in a low-stakes police encounter, like a traffic stop, as a laminated wink-and-nudge between officers that says, “Hey, would you mind going a little easy on this one?” When a cop is handed a PBA card, they can call the number on it to verify the relationship between the cardholder
  8. Center of mass of a person's body, is probably near the sternum or thereabouts, regardless of foot positioning.

  10. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/COVID-19_pandemic_in_Tanzania The COVID-19 pandemic in Tanzania is part of the ongoing worldwide pandemic of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) caused by severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2).

  11. Shouldn't positioning of the body mass be the critical/relevant issue? Maybe feet on pedals should be the end result of positioning the body relative to the wheel first, not vice versa.

    THE VIDEO THREAD!

    Not sure if this has been posted before. A Thai Police Tactical Training video uploaded by “Police Instructor Story”, demonstrating the effectiveness of using Electric Unicycles (EUCs) to apprehend an armed suspect.

    THE VIDEO THREAD!

    Nice video, beginners always seem to slouch and look downwards at the start. Think a good way to learn a new skill is to just watch another person and the brain seems to subconsciously absorb the details. Just observe, try not to actively think or analyze, let the brain absorb passively. No explanations, instructions, or inputs from others. Maybe try the technique yourself on a new skill like maybe hitting a golf ball, a tennis ball, etc, and see how it might be a good way to acquire new skills. Maybe try the technique on the next friend who is going to learn the EUC.
  14. Maybe find a fence to stand next to, and hold on with one hand. Experiment with foot positions, while staying stationary. Being stationary, when the body's center of gravity and wheel's center of gravity are lined up vertically. This might be the starting point/position.
