    ".....pede is feet." A centipede has one hundred legs. Obviously some of the centipede's feet are missing. "The answer was there in front of us all along." For instance, the answer is 42. What was the question?

    Hey might I suggest having a video about a “Gomboc” it’s a shape that has only 1 stable and 1 unstable equilibrium point almost everything has at least 4 but mathematically they created the shape and it only occurs naturally in 3 species of turtles just would be awesome if you had a video that went more in depth

    This is infuriating. There are so many arbitrary assumptions thrown into this. And the variable velocity didn’t vary at all. It was constant. I know it’s only a theoretical exercise, but it’s unduly irritated me, haha!
