I’m here to breathlessly tell you Paul Revere-like about a matter you might need to be aware of if you’re ever the target of God’s punishment. Physicists, Rosicrucians, Illuminati, unreconstructed NAZIs, Zion Elders and other conspirators will try to convince you mechanical advantage is mere physics. They lie. It’s done to lure you into a false sense of uncertainty.
Mechanical advantage isn’t about moment, arm, fulcrums and all that other crap they try to fill your head with when you’re vulnerably youthful and open to big headedness. Mechanical advantage is about heavy breathing, taking a lot of breaks and not giving yourself a damned coronary.
Don’t ever let anyone tell you you can’t rock a 5000 pound RV sitting on the ground with the wheels blocked and the emergency brake on, rock that mama with a long-enough cheater on a lug-bar. You can practically roll the SOB over the blocks.
But also don’t be gullible enough to believe you can’t eventually break the lug nuts crack CRACK CRACK. Eventually far enough so’s you can turn them with a T Bar. No matter what those people with their fancy impact tools thought when they put those tires on.
It ain’t about mechanical advantage, though. It’s about taking a lot of breathers, not getting into any heart-stopping hurries. It’s also about getting them loose enough so’s when that 5000 pounds is poised atop a 2-ton hydraulic jack with a 1-inch diameter knurled coin atop it, you don’t tip it over when you loosen the nuts the rest of the way.
Which is the next step in this conspiracy theory. During that step I recommend the mantra, “Ahtay Malkuth Vegeverah Vegedula Layohhlum!” [Four-two breathing if you can manage it]
Being punished by God can be a growth experience if a person holds his mouth right and he’s careful which God he’s going to allow to do the punishing.
