I did some math, and the 90 degree V block doubles the forces.
Hmmmm, magical V-blocks . . . .

Lever
Wheel and axle
Pulley
Inclined plane

The word 'forum" does not mean "not criticizing books."
"Ad hominem fallacy" is not the same as point by point criticism of books. If you bought the book, and believe it all, it may FEEL like an ad hominem attack, but you might strive to accept other points of view may exist.
Are we a nation of competing ideas, or a nation of forced conformity of thought?
