Each metronome is contributing horizontal force each time it swings, from the momentum of its weight. If two metronomes move opposite directions they will cancel each-other’s force. But if they are not perfectly synchronized, their respective directional force will be translated to the board they are standing on. If several are moving CLOSE to the same direction at the same time, they will influence the board’s motion more. Soon they are influencing other metronomes to move in the same direction.

Sepahan midfielder Adel Kolahkaj picked up a small, black object and tossed it away from the pitch. Turns out that object was some kind of mini grenade or firecracker, which exploded upon landing, causing the referee and his assistant to run for their lives.No one was hurt in the incident, and the game was cancelled initially but players came back on field after security inspection was made.

wanna freak yrself out? watch these nutjobs climb a ridiculously vertiginous (I know nice word right) hawaiian island ridge...
We started at the Pali Lookout and climbed the rather well traveled trail to the Pali Puka. Joining me was Randy and Francis. We proceeded beyond the Puka and the start of suicide climbs over a razor thin and crumbly ridges. The scariest part was when we reached the "W", a set of 3 notches, while retaining it's razor thin profile, all composed of crumbly rock! On the 3rd notch, we had to descend via a cable that is attached to what is known as "anvil rock", a crumbly mess of "rock" that appears ready to give at any moment (it wiggles when you push it hard)! The final climb to Lanihuli was the slowest climb ever, fighting through tangles of everything all the way to the top. We also got the opportunity to hike with Martyna and Allegra, who just happened to be hiking this same route the same day! They caught up to us just above the Pali Puka Wall. We teamed up and tackled the Lanihuli summit together! These two can really hike! It was a pleasure to hike along side you guys! Once at the summit, we descended the Lanihuli Trail which is no fun at all, considering it's 6 mile (one way) trail! All in all, this hike was the scariest and most difficult hike I've ever done... This gives True Manamana a run for it's money! AND WHILE WE'RE AT IT... AND JUST IN CASE THAT WASN'T ENOUGH FOR YA...
