Will a thread about a plane on a treadmill take off?

Attention passengers. This thread is at post 274 and climbing…

I don’t know much about planes, but I suspect this plane has not only taken off, but has left the atmosphere and will soon plummet to a fiery death (at least one can hope.)

Betting pool is now open. Which post will come before a three-day hiatus? I nab post 307. Any takers?

When that thread finally dies its death I think I am going to compose a pit thread for all the people that posted erronous information in that thread.

I don’t think all of those name will fit on the thread title :smiley:

I glanced at that thread when it was in its embryonic stages. I’ve studied Physics. I thought about it for a bit, figured out what would happen, why the premise of the thread is flawed, and how to explain it.

Since then, the thread has exploded. I’m not going to read through all six pages to join such a major clusterfuck.

Any chance the perfect master or his advisory board might step in and bring order to the chaos?? Personally, I think it’s a really good question, and not really flawed, though there are all kinds of unspecified assumptions in how it’s phrased, as would usually be the case. I haven’t been able to keep up with the conversation at all either though.
