I was inspired by a real life event that happened to me last week, to compose this thread.

I started to ride my old blue 1987 mountain bike to the train station, at about 6:30 a.m.

I was coasting slow as I approached a red street light, trying to time when it turned green.

The light turned green just as I approached the decline portion of the street, maybe 20 yards before the intersection.

I quickly shifted to the lowest gear and pedaled fast through the intersection. An oncoming car turning left yielded to me.

But as soon as I got to flat street, near the end of the intersection, my chain came loose quite abruptly.

Sometimes pedaling more will catch the chain back onto the sprockets, but that didn't work this time.

I pulled over to the sidewalk, turned over the bike, and tried to put the chain back on, but it had become hopelessly kinked, and there was no way I coukd quickly fix it.

So I walked the old blue bike back home, and caught a different ride to the train station.

A couple days later I had some time to try to fix the tangled chain.

But I noticed the chain had somehow gone through the frame of the bike! How is this possible?





Well turns out there is a pretty cool magic trick, called ring through chain trick, that shows how a knot gets tied into a ring falling faster on one side, with its edges rubbing against the outside track of a linked chain. There are lots of videos you can find of this trick. Here is one I found called, Magic or Science. James might like this video because it talks about angular momentum. Not my video.

I think I messed up my 1987 blue bike, when I took it apart, and I rode that bike into the ground for the past 6 months. I think I'm just gonna get rid of it. Hopefully I can find a good deal on a better bike.

There is no such thing as magic, there are however plenty of clueless dumb people like yourself.

PS. The chain is only tangled at this point because of your extremely low IQ, I could untangle it in 60 seconds or less even if damaged, your belief that the chain went thru the frame and that this is documented is mental


IBdaMann claims that Gold is a molecule, and that the last ice age never happened because I was not there to see it. The only conclusion that can be drawn from this is that IBdaMann is clearly not using enough LSD.

According to CDC/Government info, people who were vaccinated are now DYING at a higher rate than non-vaccinated people, which exposes the covid vaccines as the poison that they are, this is now fully confirmed by the terrorist CDC

This place is quieter than the FBI commenting on the chink bank account information on Hunter Xiden's laptop

Aren't you Mr. Handy???

All hail Mr mediocre 130 IQ! The dumbest genius in Mensa.

It's a trick. Has to do with the anglular momentum of the frame sliding against the loose chain. The chain tied a knot to make it appear like the chain went through the frame. I thought I conveyed that but your genius self couldn't seem to understand

It is not a trick and has nothing to do with angular momentum. It has all to do with the situation being viewed by a moron like you. Furthermore at the time that you looked at the chain after you screwed up, there was zero momentum of any kind.

So deal with it stupid

Well the ring through chain trick has to do with angular moment of the falling ring sliding against the chain.

It must have been a similar kind of momentum that happened when the chain fell off and slid against the frame.

Ya I wasted some time disassembling the old bike, and didn't notice the issue until it was disassembled.

We can't all be the dumbest genius in the world like you.

Again a still bike has zero momentum, and there is no type of momentum that does tricks, as only morons believe in magic in the first place.

LOL did you hear about the trick where if you put a toy boat in a half full pool and pump water into the pool that the boat rises?

See kid there are no tricks, just the stuff that eludes you which is everything

True you cannot beat me as we will never compete, though you want to be considered as competition.

Whatever floats your boat...

The bike was in motion when the chain fell off and knotted around the frame in such a way that it appeared that it had passed through the frame.
