So you want to say this is a totalitarian community or sth just because 99 % of people here think that 2 + 2 = 4 ?
People may be rude, calling other people names and still be right about some issue. It's like a difference between form and substance, although I think being nice to other people is substance too but another kind of substance, it's probably the most important thing in life if you think about it long enough. Some run out of their lives before they reach this conclusion, so you can't demand that from people who are not even in their twenties.

First of all when joining mid-race it's a good idea not to enter the track before the leaders. They are usually quick and will soon catch you, and may be angry when you ruin their race. OTOH people like me who are happy to finish around P8 on a full CTRA Race 1 are usually calmer, as they don't have much to lose . Spectate for a while and use the map to avoid joining ahead of the leaders.
They had also Falcon project, over 2 years in development, and the press release said that only one of their projects survived. It seems Falcon could be planned from the very beginning as new NFS, but all the details were kept secret.
Thanks, I look much better with these new stats.
However, I was just wondering what is the exact meaning of these new stats. I happen to be on CTRA for less than 56 days , so I thought that 'Yellows' percentage on the MyCTRA page should be the same as 'Yellow Flag Ratio (Last 56 days)' in my case, but it is not. Is that correct? Is 'Yellow Flag Ratio (Last 56 days)' calculated only from finished races?
This is the original video http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Quuqhjnxwq4 and there are more videos in the same profile. This guy actually built the equipment himself, so I would say he has lots of talent and motivation, just not necessarily spends all his time driving LFS.
Lerts, you will not create energy this way, only transfer potential energy into kinetic energy and back.
The formula for calculating the potential energy is at the end of this section (ignore the constant gravity discussion at the beginning): http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/P ... tational_potential_energy
But you forgot to tell us what law of science your thought experiment contradicts. Maybe... none?
And you can do away with one of the masses here. If you drop one mass into your tunnel in the earth from its surface, it won't be able to stop immediately in the middle, so after passing the center of the earth it will move 'up' also for a while.
Not having standalone functions in Java is not such a big problem. It is probably because Java classes (in compiled form) are also basic deployable and executable units. At least since version 1.5 you can "import static java.lang.Math.*" and then just use sin(x), cos(x) etc. in your code.
It has good reason at least in case of Forza Motorsport 2. Their graphics is always at 60 fps (when playing), so with 360 Hz physics rate the graphics is smooth and they don't need to interpolate between 2 physics steps to get the state used for a single graphics frame. LFS also does not have such interpolation but some people notice it's not smooth, for example with 75 Hz monitor refresh rate and full screen vertical sync switched on.

Not in general, of course, but in Scirocco it's possible to switch between these 3 settings while driving. If that is implemented in LFS then you could use Sport setting most of the time but change to Normal to cut chicanes.
