Fun with physics

Postby Goatwhacker » Fri Nov 04, 2005 8:39 pm

This article discusses the physics of bras and women's breasts while running. Now if we had done these types of experiments in my physics classes I would have declared a physics major, but no we had stuff about impedance and flow dynamics. I am still waiting for the definitive study on men and jockstraps.

Some highlights:

McGhee's team in Australia, headed by biomechanist Julie Steele, tags women with light-emitting diodes and asks them to run on treadmills....Breasts move in a sinusoidal pattern, Steele has found.

A pair of D-cup breasts weighs between 15 and 23 pounds—the equivalent of carrying around two small turkeys. (turkeys??)

Steele and McGhee are reluctant to divulge any details for fear of tipping off rival designers—"It's a really dirty game," McGhee says.

are you serious, your average hen(in missouri), weighs like 19 or less, and the average full grown gobbler, around 23-25...chickens?

Aaaah...now you guys understand what we have to put up with! Thank goodness someone is doing something about those damn jog-bras...just think if you guys had to wear something that compressed your "guys" together so hard that they looked like one giant one. At least jocks seem to "cup"...I can't imagine theyr'e comfortable either, but then again, you don't have to wear one just to go for a run!

A cup and supporter are so uncomfortable. Did you ever wonder why ball palyers are continuously tugging on their packages. :-t

Just imagine if you had to wear one on a daily basis! Can you imagine the chafing!
