    So, if there are vortices forming at the tips of our 8 blades, which are orbiting 4 fixed positions relative to each other, and we descend into the turbulent mass of air... could we possibly be creating "Anti-vortices"? I'm thinking it's the anti-vortices that cause me to plummet into the ground. :(

    And by the way, we have pools in Wyoming. :lol:
    Today the water, that wasn't frozen, blew all the way to Colorado.
    Indoor pools are a cool way to go though. :cool:

    I learned more entertaining and interesting stuff from this post than I have from all the l folks I've seen this week. Granted, I only talked to 6 people, and 3 were cashiers. More cows than people where I live. :| If it weren't for the net, I'd be saying things like "Hey Y'all" and "What's that on your boot?".

    Thanks morphOOO, Where you at?
