    If only your Maths was as bad as your English. Arcadia would have a fit: "Payed > Paid" :p:

    Oh, haha, :p: :p: I disagree with some of the moderators and agree with some. But this was the first time I was repped by one in helping with ideas for the the progression/growth of the forum ...

    +300 - Rep comment
    Earlier in the week I was *that* close to negging you for spamming in About :p: (I negged poor Afcwimbledon instead, which I already feel guilty about ) but the work you're doing on this is energetic, creative, and engaging. I'm still not entirely sure whether I agree, but your enthusiasm is pulling me in, so rep due. :borat: HP

    Lol it's easy enough to do the basic stuff, just counting breathing and concentrating on the body working and not thinking basically

    Then when you 'wake up' your mind seems so much clearer and relaxed because you basically give it a 20 minute break

    there's loadsa guides on tinternet, give it a try

    Sorry, I should have been clearer - I know the premise behind it but i've never been able to do it or make it work for me.

    I thought the same but I did 10 minutes everyday for months, it takes a while but it's really good when you learn

    I mean, teaching yourself to not think isn't exactly easy, it''s sad seeing people try it once in a while and then give it up because they can't do it 100% right the first time :p:

    Sorry if I sound patroizing lol, I have stressy things so I like to spread the love on what works for me, amazed I haven't done it in a while

    Same with excersise lol

    I understand where you're coming from, but I've tried all sorts of crap for ages to try and help insomnia etc. Ironically, I just got stressed that I ccouldn't de-stress, so I gave up a couple of years back :p:

    I wouldn't ever advise herbal cigarettes, they would never make me more sleepy, they would never destress me, and I would never pay money for them

    Just to make clear here, I'm not advocating drugs

    :p:


    I love to count my breathing, helps me sleep lol

    God, that was exhausting. Who knew getting an Emma Watson thumbnail to resize to the correct proportions to fit on the home page could be so hard.

    Damn you IE. As for Firefox: :love:

    In comparison with other girls, I agree with you. They are ordinary girls much better-looking than her. :p:

    But she's also really intelligent, witty and rich (not that matters) unlike other "dumb" and "plastic" celebrities (Hint: Megan Fox).
    No doubt if she met me in person I'd get a distastful glare , lol she might not want to catch anything off a commoner like me :P

    I was wondering if you could help me with Physics again please, I have another mental block :p:

    The question is Q2a on page 46 here. The solution here is what I'm confused about.

    I understand that \omega^2 = \frac{v^2}{r^2} (as in the second line), however, as far as I know, the v (of the flywheel) is not the same as the v of the falling mass. If this is the case, why can they take v^2 out as a common factor in the 4th line and do the rest of the algebra, when the two v's aren't actually equivalent??

    I've probably just read something incorrectly, or overlooked something like I did with the last question I asked about (the one about a projectile), but this has been driving me mad for the last few hours .

    You're gonna kick yourself. The flywheel is tied to a string which is tied to the mass right? Say you were in a car with a rope out the window with some insolent first year attached at the other end. The insolent first year would be going the same speed as the car, because of the rope. Same applies to the flywheel and the mass, don't be confused because there's turny crap involved :yep:
