Defining The Rotation

From a chain of emails

The subject of the Rotation came up & one emailer wrote -

"Mathematically, a rotation is a rigid body movement which, unlike a translation, keeps a point fixed."

And the reply came back -

Rotation, in the Maggie sense, is the semi-random orbital motion described by a constantly-changing number of suitors around a continuously-moving central point (aka, "Maggie"), interrupted by the occasional descent of one of the orbiting suitors to attend the central point on a temporary basis until drained and ejected back into the orbiting swarm to undergo rejuvenation/recuperation. Not unlike a cloth belt of 7.62mm in a Moebius strip configuration, passing sequentially from gun through reloading point and back.

Mmmmmm, I love it!

The two emailers may come out and identify themselves if they wish.

I dunno whom but THIS comes to mind.

Sorry -- did I use too much polysyllabic terminology for the Bahston readership?

BostonMaggie said...

Sorry, did you not understand that the words "Mmmm, I love it" connote approval?

WereKitty does not eat Canary.
We will not discuss what she *does* eat though, since this ia a public forum.
