comment Precession period matching solar year
@Kvothe: Thank you, that is a wonderful video. I haven't seen the whole thing yet, but I will. However, interesting as it is, the video does not address the question of a stable 1:1 precession:year ratio.

Thank you. Your first paragraph correlates strongly with my intuition, but your second paragraph addresses a very possible reason why the lower-surface-area dog shit stinks worse! And your third paragraph is now answered!

comment A machine which copies any object with 100% accuracy?
Which qualities? Macroscopic qualities such as functionality? Microscopic qualities such as surface defects? It goes back to my statement that the properties to be copied have to be well-defined.

Wow, thanks, that is a great edit! It is so elegant once I see it! I assume that v is the initial velocity imparted by the hand? Thank you!
