    I whole-heartedly agree with Dan Levine......

    ......and for learning and reaffirming knowledge.

    It seems to me that there are quite a few biomechanists misunderstanding
    some basic principles in Physics. I say 'basic' because these are principles
    which are learned in 1st/2nd year Physics, however, when applied to complicated
    human motions, such as tethered swimming, application of these 'basic' principles
    can become less than trivial. I find this discussion refreshing (and a bit
    scary to read some responses). If a subscriber does not care to join, actively
    or passively, in the discussion, he/she can easily just delete the message
    ..assuming, of course, that the sender used an appropriate subject line, e.g.
