Bullies can intimidate people enough that they're afraid to stand up for themselves, unfortunately. This probably works for Charles in real life so he thinks it can work here too.
Giess what? I am a tin foil hat conspiracy lunatic who knows nothing... See what I'm getting at here?

I'm guessing that預s we haven't had the misfortune of seeing him here for a while now葉hat Charles's constant stream of personal insults, off-topic posts, and crude language has finally earned him time on the bench.

It was very tiresome arguing from a solely technical stance with someone like Charles, who doggedly refuses to accept様iterally葉hat any of the conventional or proven scientific theories are correct.  I don't think he fully grasped many (any?) of the mechanical specifics regarding the Foucault pendulum, nor did he investigate any of the evidence we cited.

Also, he's a complete wanker.

Well I loved your speech on Bullies & Insults. Uses all need to take a good hard  look in the mirror ::) What part of the torque at the pivot point is audible & recordable ,have you not understood? Torque at the pivot point exists. Which throws a spanner in the works in regards to your world spinning Bullshit Foucault pendulum claim.

And you still fail, time after time, to show us how the torque works according to what you say. A step-by-step description, a diagram or even a simple video shot with a cellphone would probably be enough. And another point: why does this "torque" vary only on the location on Earth, not really on the dimensions, weight etc. of the pendulum? REs have provided a simple and plausible explanation for this. What is yours?

No it doesn't. Saying it over and over doesn't make it true, kiddo.

Uses?  Is that even English?  Maybe Charles is a Klingon?

Newton would be pleased.  Nowadays you can apparently hear the sound of torque (is that a pun?) and even record it.  The marvels of modern science never cease to amaze me!  And confound Charles at the same time.  Bizarre.

And I thought torque made things spin. 41 pages of spin.

Apparently they've been trying蓉nsuccessfully葉o teach Charlie grade school arithmetic.  He's mastered adding and subtracting OK, but still has issues with multiplication and division.  Apparently his release is dependent on getting those two figured out.

Then maybe he'll make more sense.

For the new guys, read back a few pages and see Charlie at his best.
