This is a normal post The vid said the spark plugs, inlet and outlet ports remain stationary
The cylinders rotate below the cylinder head, progressing from inlet port, to spark plug, to outlet. There has to be a decent seal between the two, particularly with compression ratios of up to 14:1.

Wankel (pfnar pfnar) engines have problems with seals between combustion chambers, meaning they use more oil than a conventional cylinder engine.

I can see it becoming useful in piston engined aircraft where the weight saving might be useful, but any more than that? Not sure. Even then I'd be worried the complexity would cause reliability issues.

This is a normal post Silly man.
the origin can only ever be where the X axis intersects the Y axis. I got a B in my maths GCSE I'll have you know, and I'm so old I took AO maths, and reached the dizzy heights of a C grade. And anyway, your theory would render the line X=-Y

Is the Y axis positive up or down?

see my edit above. The convention is the origin is zero. Going west is negative, as is going south. This is why Devon is so shit.

This is a normal post Sign conventions for maps are interesting
and I've had some fun with them in the past, but they're hardly relevant here.


I'll refute your argument on two grounds:

1. In most languages you start reading from the top left corner of a page. Thus an origin in this position is the most sensible for a web page, where it's not guaranteed that the entire image will be visible at once, and the top left corner will be the first part to be displayed. Your proposal means that I have to scroll to the bottom of the page to find the origin.

2. In order for your proposal to be valid you have to assume that "Bill Watterson" is assigned a value of 2 on the X axis, but 9 on the Y axis. My proposal suggests that it holds the same value on both.


Which seems more logical?

This is a normal post Hmmmm.
Maths is a universal language, free from the constraint of starting to read from the top left corner of a page, something that is not even common to all languages. A graph is not a language but an attempt to envision information in a manner that bypasses the need for linguistic interpretation. It is a pictorial representation of data that is not in any way literal, but the closest thing possible to an objective representation of data. If the graph is inaccurate, this is not the fault of said pictorial representation, but the fault of inaccurate data employed to draw the graph. Graphs cannot lie, data can. In order for this to be true, we must expect that the laws of maths are undisputed, which is hardly a controversial assertion, and not open to interpretation. The same cannot be said of language.

To paraphrase the teacher:
"...Super heated steam is a bitch: a leak less than 1mm can be highly
dangerous and invisible. You know you found a leak when some of your
fingers, or your hand, drops on your foot.
The cut is so perfect that you body part will hit the ground before
you register pain.
Bigger leaks, 1cm maybe, can cut people in two when they walk past them.
That's why, when you have a leak on on superheated part of your
boiler system, first shut down, then cool down and open the valves
before looking for the leak..."
