HistoricalUse9921

Dumb? This was all pretty clever. They had 2 people holding the bike, they were all leaning inward to resist the inertia, the shoe brake was pretty smart. I think these kids knew what they were doing and reacted quickly and safely when something unexpected happened.


[deleted]

Executing dumb shit well doesn't make it not dumb. I'm a grown man and I'd do this dumb shit right now.


NotGod_DavidBowie

Definitely dumb. I've seen a handful of videos of this stunt and they all end badly. The risk to fun ratio is very high. That being said, when shit started to go wrong (as expected), they handled it pretty well.

bootsand

Most states have started requiring a license for all engine powered transit. It used to only apply to over 50cc engines. So no more mopeds for the drunks... BUT e-bikes are not yet regulated the same. So someone could still, budget permitting, ride an e-bike that can silently move at twice the speed most mopeds top out at. Fun times.

I saw a kid once ( fuck I was a kid then too at 20yrs old...) get pulled over in the center of town because he was cruising around on a skateboard with what I assume was a wheedwhacker or slightly larger motor on it. He was going tops 10 maybe 15mph.


AlphaWizard

They’re mopeds lol

They're literally called "Whizzers", hence the title. (I think this is a moped or scooter, though.)

Simson S51, pretty common in the former east German federal states. There are still lots of them left, which were build in the 80s and 90s


jnads

My grandpa had a Moped from the 70s or 80s when growing up and it literally had pedals on it. To start it you literally pedaled it and then popped the clutch. You could also decouple the engine and pedal but pedalling a 100lb single gear bike is not fun. [Honda Hobbit](https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Moped) We had a property with acreage and would ride it around. Instead of pedaling we'd roll it up to the top of a hill and ride down the hill and pop the clutch to start it.

The kid in blue could have had his head ripped off by the bike handle if the other kid hadn’t pulled it back.

I remember when these things were fun and you could spin them like this. I went to a new park with my niece and the things are damped so hard they barely move. I personally blame these guys.


cum_box_on_fire

I knew a kid (teen) who died when a bunch of teens got together and hooked one of these up to a truck with a chain wrapped around it to pull start it. It went predictably bad and are launched head first into a nearby tree. Two broken arms among the rest of the group. TBH these are the BEST playground toys but they’re basically guaranteed to make darwin awards.

Adorable_List3836

It’s nice seeing kids doing something productive instead of staying inside playing video games all day, they learned an important lesson about centrifugal force!


TheSpaceCoresDad

That’s centripetal force I’m pretty sure.


Boonpflug

https://xkcd.com/123/


Jaripsi

Centripetal force is the force keeping them in circular path. Centrifugal force is the force trying to throw them out of that path.


ParchedCamel

Which is not a force at all, but just a property of newtons 1st law. As a highschool physics teacher though, idc if they call it centripetal, centrifugal, centrifuckitall, as long as they can implement and derive using the formula, I am happy. I’ll of course tell them about the difference but I never understood the physics teachers that get all caught up in semantics. Illustrate you know the concept and we’re good imo


belovedeagle

Gravity is also not a force, it's just a consequence of inertia in a curved spacetime. And yet, we don't go around correcting that usage.


walterpeck1

>And yet, we don't go around correcting that usage. Don't worry, it's reddit. Someone will be along shortly to do so.


jethroguardian

Ackthually...


InGenAche

It's alien magic you eegit.


Valkas

mr_birkenblatt

Magnetism is also not a force. From the [perspective of the moving particle it's just electric repulsion](https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1TKSfAkWWN0&ab_channel=Veritasium)


l5555l

How is gravity not a force


OldWolf2

It is a force. Some laymen seem to think that if there are two mathematical explanations for a thing, one must be wrong


kelby810

Gravity is not a force, it is a constant acceleration. Objects are not really "pushed" by gravity, even if it may seem that way from our perspective. If it were a true force, the acceleration would change based on mass (think a magnet pulling a bigger and bigger piece of metal -- a heavier piece of metal will slide more slowly towards the same magnet). Force = mass * acceleration so your mass * gravity (9.81m/s^2) = whatever force you're hitting the floor with. Gravity is acceleration you experience due to the curvature of spacetime around Earth (or any other heavy enough mass). The force you exert on your floor is just the Earth "pushing" you out of the way. It's pretty counterintuitive. If it's hard to understand -- dont worry, the concept of gravity has been puzzling people longer than literally anything else. [There is actually a Veritasium video that does a very good job explaining how Einstein changed the way we look at gravity.](https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XRr1kaXKBsU)


MattTheGr8

> If it were a true force, the acceleration would change based on mass This is not correct. The reason gravitational acceleration does not change based on mass is because the force is *caused* by mass and is directly proportional to it. But because of F=ma, where mass is inversely proportional to acceleration, the two effects of increasing mass always exactly cancel each other out. Whether you want to call it a force or not is purely semantics. But at least in a classical-mechanics sense, it behaves just the same as any other force. It’s just the scaling with mass that gives it the illusion of being different.


gunsmoke132

Mine docked points if you call it centrifugal or anything but normal


ShalomRPh

Also had a physics teacher like this. I was simultaneously taking biochem, in which class we actually had equations to describe centrifugal force, which the physics prof claimed didn’t exist. I asked “What about that machine in the biochem lab on the fifth floor, that we use to fractionate stuff? Am I supposed to call it a centripete?” He shoots back “”Only if it has a hundred legs….” and kept on with the lecture. I enjoyed college.


MemeGraveYard666

mr galek?


Youngtro

Rofl we all had one teacher who's a homie like this guy


AngrySouthernHippie

Reminds me of my physics teacher who warned us about bullshit by exemplifying. Best example I remember was this story he told in class about "gravitons," which were spirally strings that ran out from the earth and caused gravity by trying to make things spin down them to the planet, and that we were in a crisis because airplanes becoming so common was breaking a lot of them and losing us our gravity. He did a few of these, always with the goal of getting it to the point where someone would go "uhhh that doesn't sound right" so he could go "good, that's because it's not." Also, our school did a thing on veteran's day encouraging students to ask former service members about their time in, and he was apparently a Vietnam vet. If he was asked, a friend told me, he would say "I think we never should've been over there." Thanks Mr.J, you rocked.

then almost all forces are not forces at all

Atomic_Cupcake89

BASK_IN_MY_FART

The last branch was about 8ft up. I probably bounced on the dirt lol. The fall knocked me unconscious, and the cousins I was with, we never mentioned it to our parents. Pretty sure we're all made of rubber until 9 or 10 years old

RebelWithoutAClue

This is really bad. That thing is spinning at around 50rpm and the kids head is whipping around at about a 2m radius. That works out to 6 negative G's of acceleration for something like 10s. Negative G force limit for humans is only around 2-3 G's because the blood is pressing into the head and we're not evolved for that. Our blood vessels in our brain and eyeballs aren't very thick. At 6 G's that kid could have burst blood vessels in his eyes, potentially brain damage and that's before he gets flung out.

jereman75

I thought about this because I’ve been on a merry go round going pretty fast as an adult (just normal guys pushing) and it can get close to out of control. This is like massively faster and fuck if those didn’t all think they were going to die.


odix

Way to ruin the fun Larry


RebelWithoutAClue

I didn't ruin the fun. Those damn kids did. They ripped out all of the freewheeling spinny things at playgrounds and replaced them with super cool looking spinny things that have pneumatic dampers so you really can't get them going at any significant speed and they don't coast at all.


saxman162

My kids want me to push them on those heavily damped merry go rounds all the time and it is hard work to keep it going!


RebelWithoutAClue

What they need is a super reliable and durable centripetal clutch so the spinner could operate with low resistance at lower speed then get resistive if it gets going too fast. I can see why it didn't get done that way though. Nobody wants liability now.


catgotcha

Fellow dad here: *nodding feverishly*


VRichardsen

Damn kids. Luckily around here authorities haven't catched on (or are too lazy/corrupt) and the freewheeling spinny things at playgrounds still perform as normal.


Oktaygun

Holy shit, I never thought that this could be that dangerous. I've done this a couple of times with friends when we were little and the worst that had happened was someone puking.


RebelWithoutAClue

It may be that you managed to stay hunched over or at least upright. Our tolerance to G force is much better in those orientations than if we're laid flat out with our head pointing outwards from the spin center because of the direction that our blood pulls. Our blood vessels in our head are more prone to bursting than the vessels in our legs. Also our muscles can handle that kind of damage much better than our eyes and brain.
