As usual I woke up in the middle of the night.  At least i learned something this time.
That guy explained it well, I liked being able to move the animations around to see things

Love the engine, the mind that thought up that cannon shot to turn a piston, creating thrust to do “work”. Incredible and what an incredible world we live in....now I just gotta figure out how to rebuild the gears on my HD. Just for fun.

Great find Erik. Mechanics of ICE never cease to amaze even after over a century.

thanks for the share.   I sent this to my grandkids.   Very cool.  

When I was young, we purchased a see thru plastic working model of the V8.

We had one of those too! The Museum of Science in Boston also had a really nice exhibit on them.

I figured you’d watch this and think ‘ what an elementary look at the internal combustion engine.’ 🤣

    • Yup, when i switch from my maltby PTMs which have a lot less offset to the Ping G irons, i have to take extra care to ensure that it is pointing in the right direction --- otherwise it tends to point to the left. I have some markings on my grips which helps ensure the grip/alignment is consistent. 
    • Golf is just a difficult game because of the required precision needed to hit strait-isn shots when the downswing is a fraction of a second in duration.  Golf rule are made because they are fair and for the most part simple to understand. This means, there are not 100 different situations for one rule. Which is good. None of your examples are anything to complain about regarding the rules. Honestly, you don't encounter those situations that much to say it make golf excessively hard. 
    • I have encountered much reluctance to play by USGA rules that make the game "too hard". Examples are no automatic two-putts on temporary greens, balls that are lost because they embedded are still lost, bare ground is not GUR, mud is not temporary water, penalty relief area may be on a cart path, no relief from divots, no relief from boundary fence, no line of play relief from immovable obstructions, etc. 
    • Thanks for sharing, I enjoyed the read. Playing your own game is important.  Many years ago, there was a woman at my home club who would play from the blue tees, hit her drives about 230, and would shoot in the high 70s/low 80s.  It was fun being paired with her because... well, playing with good players is always fun, but I also enjoyed watching men who couldn't handle being outdriven by her try to hit the ball further, mostly unsuccessfully.  I knew I couldn't compete with her for distance (and I don't think I was ever competing against her anyway), but that really helped.  As for the safe shot vs correct shot, I think the driver is the right club a lot more often than many think it is.  Fairways hit are overrated in most golfers' minds and distance from the tee is underrated as a contributor to scoring.
