Sam knew that on three decimal spaces would not be enough.
only not on.
If it doesn’t check to nineteen decimals, it’s not QX!
She’s totally committed
To major independence
But she’s a lady through and through
She gives them quite a battle
All that they can handle
She’ll bruise some
She’ll hurt some too
But oh they love to watch her strut
Oh they do respect her but
They love to watch her strut
Three decimal places? I wasn’t really thinking about it, but that’s only 0.001 inch… when I was writing CNC programs, we usually worked to 5 decimal places (0.00001″) and that was for sheet metal products with 0.25″ tolerance on final assembly.
Calculating gait is one thing. Matching the movement – damn-nigh impossible.
Especially for chromed abacus…..
Computer controlled machines are one thing, but nothing beats home-cookin’….
(Not often I say that, really.)
Just a reach, but I imagine the mass distribution has a lot to do with it. Mass ratios will dictate how the armatures and moments of inertia interact to maintain stability and locomotion. All the gait gets you is a limit on step increment.
And, recall, that Sam told the machine that it made her ass too big. So mass distribution will assuredly be off. 😉
Hey! Watch that monkeying around!
Women walk one way when going from A to B for business. They walk, er sashay, another way for men. And calculating THAT requires significant prior experience, like growing up imitating mommy when she sashays. There is walking and there is weapons deployment.
Also consider that there are always variances in gait depending on terrain, mass, fatigue, and etc. Sam will walk slightly differently on sand, or after just getting out of the truck.
Machines tend to have too much “consistency” in copying organic movement. This works well in factory assembly lines (going back to the Gilbreaths’ time-and-motion studies), but falls short in any situation in which variance is necessary.
Incidentally, this was the very problem that affected the U.S. Army’s “walking truck” project of the 1960s;
Operator fatigue was exacerbated by the fact that the walker, which was controlled by feedback from the operator’s arms and legs, always moved exactly the same way in any movement- which meant that it was often either pulling the operator “up short” or continuing a movement to completion when the operator had stopped, causing overextension of muscles and tendons.
Too much consistency can be as big a problem as not enough.
On a side note… Four years ago today…
Just a note … a FacePlant link is of no use to the many of us that do not partake of that ‘service’.
That wasn’t the purpose of Jo anyway. Her mission is another thing, and that doesn’t require tricking a husband by copying hot wife’s walk. She’s undoubtedly pretty good at it, but that’s not her purpose.
What jdow said above.
Based on what society says a ‘hot wife’ is, both may get mad at you for calling Sam a ‘hot wife’.
Up by the bus stop and across the street
Open up their windows to take a peek
Y’all she goes walking, rockin’ like a rollin’ stone
I’m betting that as he got close, he could feel the heat coming off Sam, too. 🙂
What Zed meant:
“They can’t slap a number on this, but I can put a “number” on it right quick!”
Let the ‘bot watch, that’ll get her program going!
Or maybe not, Jav might have her on remote feed…in fact that may be part of his overall design, the little pre-horndog.
Zed needs to call Damon right quick if that is even a remote possibility.
“…a “remote” possibility.”
Zed, like Hercule Poirot, ‘has an eye for the figure of a receding woman.’
Hey. Quick question for Mr. Muir
I ordered the Naomi Red level which I think was download goodies only.
Very nice goodies, BTW.
However I don’t recall there being any mail delivered stuff, so how do those of us at the Naomi level get raffle tickets??
Sam Level and above only, I’m afraid, Grunt.It’s all linked to the mailed stuff.
Ahhh, ok…just wondering…
