walk around a boardIf you walk around a board laying on If you walk around a quarter of a circle and look at the board broad side, then you see the length of the board without any shortening like on an angle. So call this . At the slanted angles in between, it is still the sine of the angle with the length of the board vector. I thought this up because I had a dream last night where I was walking away from someone and I thought to myself, they can't see my face because of the cosine of the angle!! When I woke up I tried to make sense of that! igloo myrtilles fourmis #2 20051218 03:36:20

Re: walk around a boardI think I understand. Are you saying that your eyelevel is exactly the same as the level of the board, and so you see it only as a line? Why did the vector cross the road? It wanted to be normal. #4 20051218 07:58:42
Re: walk around a boardYeah, that's what I meant. I guess I should have said you look from eyes that are igloo myrtilles fourmis
