90 on Ford's, 80 on Gord's. I put Jack the Ripper with the Pope and screwed up spelling my name with capital letters.

88% and I hate to admit it, but 22+ years ago I went to diesel school in when I was in the Marines.

I have come up with this great invention. They are really cool. A bunch of holes. Each one a different size. I can produce them in both metric and imperial. You want a hole somewhere, you just choose the size you want, place a hole on it and you have a hole. Only problem is, I have a small shipping issue I need to remedy before I can market them. They seem to disappear as soon as I place them in a bag or box. All I am left with is a hole in the container that I packed the hole into. I thought I might try my wifes "hole proof" stockings though. (Oh umm...americans may call them Nylons). If it works, does any one mind me sending the pack of holes in a stocking? Introductory offer is a set of both the imperial and metric.
Please note: Due to Stockings (nylons) being only in limited sizes, really large holes still can not be shipped.

Hey Alan
Do your holes come in both right and left hand models?

Seems like splitting hairs, considering the same test talks about Kg of force in several questions, yet a kilogram is not a unit of force but a unit of mass. The metric unit of force is a newton.

The key is that it says 'normally aspirated'. A turbocharged engine would still have the same piston moving in the same way, creating the same partial vacuum. But the force driving the air into the cylinder would be the turbo (plus atmosphere). If no turbo, it is just atmospheric pressure.

That, and the fact that physics 101 says there is no such thing as 'suction' (or centrifugal force for that matter). They are both 'virtual forces'.

Oh and what's a PSI? Surely kg/cm-2?

Wheels:
I need (3) of your largest holes.
I want to store my “problems” in them, and hope that I can store the filled holes in a box - sans stockings.

You simply flip the hole over for which ever direction you want. Clockwise and Anti-clockwise.

I see a slight flaw in my invention. I had the truck arrive early this mornign to pick up your order Gord. I threw the holes onto the truck and the whole lot disappeared. Please be patient while I work through this small freighting issue.

Are the holes available in black? Can they be baked with a donut around them?

What is the shipping weight of a large hole?

Thanks

Zach, they are only in black. Seems to be the only colour that stays on. I tried to make white holes, but the paint just stayed on the brush. I tried dipping the holes, but the paint fell right through all over the ground.
The weight is the really great part though. They seem to weigh nothing. Even the really big one.

Steve, it seems Baloney disappears as soon as you get a hole near it as well. Different hole though. Mouth hole which leads to the Stumoch hole and I won't go any further

That should work! My lady friend puts her holes in stockings and they don't disappear!

How true, some have to pay double just to get them on a plane.
