INDEED.

No, inertia keeps the world spinning ‘round.
Our everyday experience teaches us that an object must be "pushed" by a force in order to keep it moving. Otherwise, it will slow down and eventually stop.
But this intuition is absolutely wrong. If an object is moving, then a force is required to slow it down or stop it, not to keep it moving.
Hence, Newton's 1St Law, paraphrased: "Objects in motion tend to stay in motion. Objects at rest tend to stay at rest."
This a good example of theory trumping experience. Let’s not be fooled by what we think we know, but don't.

Re: Our Feathered Friends' Droppings

Thank you Gord, i could not agree more with that philosopy. My reply is meant in a relaxed way and intended rather to breed friendship than build a database of enemies. Sure it's light hearted and in jest and yes .. i do need you to give the ballanced perspective thats what make the reading interesting! Thanks.

We LOVE solar panels to doze on-they are so warm.
One Seagul did that on my solar pannel so I grabbed him and shoved it back up his butt.

He told all his friends worldwide because none have done it since

Re: Our Feathered Friends' Droppings

Well, it certainly seem pretty conclusive, no ... no ... not the way Mark did to the seagull's, but a cat! Must say it does hold merrit! I'm kinda wondering about a Siamese cat because those i've seen, my word they were vicious!

And many of these same people are using diesel/gas engines which are far worse and more threatening to the birds and fishes than bird poo ever was to you. If you are putting wires up to block birds then you aren't following the golden rule. Don't anchor next to me, I might do something mean.
And when the bird poo gets deep enough, you can sell it as Guano fertilizer Yep! that is what we should do... That guano will finance our cruises out to infinity and beyond.
