That and the grey colour of the message mean that I'd slicked the "sarcasm" button before posting it.

Because men aren't trying to be attractive to men. Men are trying to be attractive to heterosexual women.

However, the woman in this video is incentivized to be attractive to lesbians, so It seems unintuitive that she would try to look manly when she knows that is unattractive to lesbians like herself.

I don't have a problem with it, whatever makes them happy, but it is a bit odd, right? Your reply and the video don't get at the real issue -- why are there different types of lesbians. Sexuality is complicated.

I wasn't aware of the explanation on the website while posting my first comment. The first part of my second comment covers that. The second part was to explain what I meant with "vertical forces applied to the ballcamera".
Sorry for the confusion.
Neat concept though, I'd like a bunch of these to create "panorama maps".

In reply to this comment by rychan:
There's no freely movable parts inside the camera. The website makes it pretty clear:
"Our camera contains an accelerometer which we use to measure launch acceleration. Integration lets us predict rise time to the highest point, where we trigger the exposure."

So while your original post implies that it somehow detects the top of the trajectory as it happens, in fact the camera measures launch acceleration to predict the length of time until the top of the trajectory.

Actually, no. The acceleration on the ball is roughly constant through the entire trajectory. So it's somewhat tricky to estimate when you're at the top of the parabola.

They seem to use an accelerometer to predict the time of max height as seen on
their website.
I wasn't referring to the acceleration rather to the forces, being applied while thrown, to a possible freely movable object inside of the camera, using the same principle as the seatbelt mechanism.
My train of thought leaves in a couple of minutes.

I had not noticed the traffic lights, I will assume that is what is on the poles, as the cowering driver would be the ones in front not making a move to merge after so many large gaps. But obviously now they wouldnt do that if a street light was saying not to go.

People who cause accidents are many types of people, one of them I know is the type that do not feel comfortable in what they are doing and are unsure of how to properly act on the road, I.E new drivers, old drivers, female drivers,male drivers and clown cars.

You can either fuck up a driving situation by being too much of an aggressive cock or you can fuck it up by being a little cowering bitch.
In this video we see both.


Which driver is cowering?

Give it a go. A license is still pretty cheap. It's one of those kind of games that's hard to describe - and it looks a bit lame through videos and whatnot - but play it for a solid hour (through your first day/night cycle) and you'll either be into it or not.

I've never tried Minecraft at all. Maybe I should.
