If anyone has more gifs or webms of automotive related shit please share
>1 of something
why you don't like a screwdriver to the head? it is a very good drink
It's not a watch to be worn, it's a piece of art. It's one of the most complex watches ever built, and only seven were made. It was done to show off what the craftsmen were capable of (and pay their salaries, obviously).
If you've ever built anything mechanical, you should be able to appreciate the beauty of an incredibly complex, precise piece of machinery regardless of what it does.
Hey op, I think you misused automotive in your description. I think you should have used mechanical\industrial.
There's 2 other dolls like this, one plays music and the other draws 2 pictures on paper. All were made by the same person.
Google, "Strandbeest" and go from there. Some of them are pretty cool because they have energy storage, reverse-on-impact, reverse-on-sensing-water, and other "survival" features.
It was always written IIII on clocks because you could somehow confuse IV and VI because of the ways it's tilted so they kept it that way when they first made watches and it stayed like this
I read a really cool paper recently on estimating medieval IQs from the percentage of the population that could remember their own age.
Basically, if you look at really old survey data, youll find a disproportionately large amount of people reporting that they are x0 or x5 years old (as in 30, 35, 40, 45). People would just lose track and report estimates rounded up to nice numbers. And here is the thing, your ability to report your own age demonstrates your capacity to remember and your capacity to do simple math, which are both components of modern IQ tests. By measuring how large the effect of people rounding their own ages, you can get some idea of what percentage of that population was that stupid.
Looks like this fella is shifting with his left hand.
Either an aussie,or a brit...
Whatever thanks for this gif buddy,makes me feel like less of an ogre when I don't use the clutch past 1st gear.
Psst. Thas a boxer engine.
Really named .... boxer throwing punches.
Flat 4 flat 6. as oppesed to inlines 4/6
Porches/ Volkswagen use this alot.
Subaru uses this. (but when lifting the hood,subarus look more cluttered,hard for a non enthusiast to identify)
i laugh at everyone in these threads, go be a mechanic and work in a factory like i do.. none of this crap impresses me anymore
Sure thing, kid.
They used to do it with headlights when car manufacturers first started using LEDs. During the year or two they were doing that, if you moved your eyes quickly you could see the taillights strobing. It was extremely disorienting. I assume that's why they don't do it anymore.
When I don't add a smoothing capacitor to my circuits, the transistor for the LED I'm suing will cause that very same effect. It is weird as fuck. I can't imagine seeing that at night with all the cars on a busy street.
Back in early Roman days usage of Roman numerals wasn't as standard as it is today. There was more use of "additive" methods (adding numbers such as going from III to IIII) rather than using subtractive methods (subtracting numbers such as going from III to IV [5 less 1]).
>>901152 is wrong If that were the case nine would be written as VIIII instead of IX.
Just because someone can't do something doesn't mean they can't be a critic.
I don't have to be able to sing just to tell you that someone sucks at singing.
Same way that I don't have to be able to make a glass horse just to say that it's disproportionate.
Let's see if this will turn out as well as I had hoped.
If you don't think about wanting to keep your hand steady when picking up small things, say like when you've got tweezers and you need to pluck you're over grown eyebrows that are turning into a mono-brow. if you don't think about keeping you're hand steady and relax, it will steady itself
No, there are physiological and developmental components too. Some people have much better fine motor control than others. Some of that can be fixed with training, some can't.
Many psychotropic medications also affect fine motor skills, as do stress, psychological, and medical conditions.
Even then it's easier to just plug it in yourself, makes no difference if it's at a station or at home. Try thinking before replying.
Only purpose I can see is if they're serious about their self driving car bullshit
even if it is " just some shitty glue" ( which trust me its more then jsut shitty glue) remember this, THEY own the multibillion $ industry not you. they must be doing something right.
not really. It's hard to think of rotaries in the same way as you do with regular piston engines. The combustion volume is always hot. It doesn't get three other strokes to cool down.
More so than the drinking up oil, the fuel efficiency is terrible. The only place they really shine is in motorsports, where light, high revs, high output, and endurance for only a few hours is concerned.
