My apologies, I was trying to be somewhat sarcastic with the rat poison comment. I did not realize there was sensitivity on the term. I now understand that some in the community are sensitive to the term.I think that you must have completely misread the statement that you responded to. This was NOT about INRs of 6 or 7 - it was of INRs that were .5 BELOW the target INR up to .7 ABOVE the target INR - NOT INRs between 5 and 7. This is above and below the RANGe - not absolute values.
This 'Rat Poison' thing should end here.
none needed ... it "is" rat posion ... anyone who gets angsty about it needs to get their humor gland massagedMy apologies, I was trying to be somewhat sarcastic with the rat poison comment.
I don't see you changing the world by berating all of us in here mate. Roll with the punches, bend like the reed in the wind ... But good luck finding peace or happiness by getting agro at the world and championing a lost cause.As far as lack of humor about the 'rat poison (not poision)' comment -- I've heard it too often, from too many people, to treat it as a benign topic.
5hit, I'd never thought of looking at the dose ... this makes me think that some of my 1mg tablets and a bit of Deb (instant mashed potato) could make a "killer" concoction for the rats (who are unable to puke, so when they eat stuff are stuck with what happens ;-)So that ratsaks 500mg per kg, so probably at best 2-4 weeks worth of doses in a box,
I understand your definition of center of mass. But, when they say center of gravity, they're referring to a spot, usually below the object, where the gravitational forces focus. Take, for example, a bicycle -- it may be accidental, but it's designed so that the center of gravity is at a point that is slightly below the wheels. Put a person on the bike, and there's more weight below the person's trunk than there is on the top half of the body - the center of gravity becomes a point a foot or two BELOW the wheels - and this gives the bike its stability. Objects with a low center of gravity are more stable than objects having a center or gravity that's above the 'ground.' More weight at the bottom than at the top keeps things from tipping over (that's why I wear heavy shoes).Hey protimenow its all good - its how we learn
but coming from an engineering background:
In physics, the center of mass is the arithmetic mean of all points weighted by the local density or specific weight. If a physical object has uniform density, its center of mass is the same as the centroid of its shape (from a quick Google search).
This has nothing to do with gravity. Sorry for deviating from the original thread.
