Re: Wings work on snow?

The thinnest Leading Edge is on a rigid wing. A larger leading-edge typically leads to necessity in designing a thicker foil section. This can be better for low-end and low wind, but really struggles at efficiency and high speeds. I've had this thought for a few years now, that if there were ever to...

Personally, I believe that any societies decline is first indicated by shaming the truth. No problem can be solved, without admission of that problem and it's cause.

Re: Covid-19 - How does it affect your kite-life?

In the EU, the people are governed by laws made by unelected EU officials. Restrictions on freedom of speech are also much more severe, and those restrictions are even outside of hate speech rules. In Canada, freedom of speech has been completely disassembled with the issuance of the ruling in the W...

Re: Covid-19 - How does it affect your kite-life?

Maybe!! Are you from france? if so why do you care about guns in America? I could give a rats ass about what happens in France and certainly would not criticize a Country about an issue that has no effect on me. The citizens of other countries are often concerned with the rights which others have, ...

Re: Covid-19 - How does it affect your kite-life?

Nobody said anything about "Democrats", or any other political affiliations & how exactly are "refugees" voting? :roll: You bring up typical libertarian strawman arguments. Stick to reality & the example at hand. If out-of-Hatteras property owners (don't have to be out-of-staters) show up & want to...

Re: Covid-19 - How does it affect your kite-life?

In fact, in the real world, as opposed to the gun-nut fantasy world, civil war is the likely outcome of any serious armed struggle with "the government",.... Extermination is the likely outcome of unarmed struggle with those who are actually armed. What would have the outcome been in the United Sta...

Re: Covid-19 - How does it affect your kite-life?

Nah, I haven’t conflated anything. You chose to drop the idea that when you show up with your gun, the government will shut off your power, water and access to food with tanks and drones and whatever electronic weapons they chose. You can always pick lots of ways to fight them but a gun is one of t...

Re: Covid-19 - How does it affect your kite-life?

There's almost no situation in which it IS applicable. The Hatteras situation is actually an excellent example: do the residents have the right to an armed defense against the incursion of "non-resident homeowners"? Do the non-resident homeowners have the right to use armed force to enforce their o...

Re: Covid-19 - How does it affect your kite-life?

They will still have access to tanks, drones, etc. Never going to be a fair fight. There are a million ways to fight, but only a handful of them are fair. In the above situation, I would choose to fight one of the almost million ways that are unfair. Yup, with computers and economics. That’s the ne...

Re: Covid-19 - How does it affect your kite-life?

Sure. :roll: And having everybody armed to the teeth is definitely going to help in sorting out disputes like whether Hatteras non-resident home-owners should have access to their houses during the Covid-19 situation. No, I don't think that is applicable in that situation. You don't need to solve a...
