The newly enhanced Bow Suit is now composed of advanced
compound bows. The ideal operating mode is to adapt to dead
weight monkey squat inside suspension arch of Compound Bow
By holding each bow by the top handles and standing in the Bow
Shoes on the other ends the operator bounces
in the constant
compression and decompression of the bows.
The bow force compounding pulley gears store energy in
ratcheting recoil motors that can store a combined potential of
ton of force. Releasing this stored energy propells the wearer of
Compound Bow Suit. Decompression is limited to prevent
separating vertebrae, as well as to when the bows are parallel
alignment, to avoid single bow misfires.

So, could the Compound Bow Suit be adapted for wear while riding the Grasshopper Cycle?

||This idea is approaching comprehensibility, though
I'm not sure from which side.
||So, it's basically a big body-height archery-type bow
with footrests on the bottom and hand-holds on the
top, that you bounce around in?
||Yes but it still utilizes bipedal pendulosity.
||The word "pendulosity" [+]
||//Yes but it still utilizes bipedal pendulosity//
||There's a pretty safe position for more = more. Also no
argument is needed against a damned traitor to bipedal
||Never, never before have I been called bipedal.
||I bite my thumb at you, sir. Good day.
||How does the bow tie work?
||Biting thumb is that saying the gesture of the mocking
laugh where a toothy mouth is open and the hand moves
towards covering the face, sometimes causing the thuumb
to enter the mouth and strike a tooth?
||Biting the thumb can be done more coarsely in literalist
simulacra of the cultural uuniversal described in the
||Yes that would be la masse iinterpretation and thus crude.
But to know that he that bites his thumb laughs mockingly
and doing it right shows refinement.
||It's an interesting idiom because the inadvertant biting of
the hand is a pratfall in the gesture, leading to an
exchange of mocking laughs. I laugh at you, you mock my
||Do you bite your thumb at me sir?
||I bite my thumb at you to mock your bitten thumb. Your
failed attempt at mockery where you lampooned yourself.
||But do _you_ bite your thumb at _me_, sir?
||Woohoo ghosts are in the ethereality. I'm really scared!?
You are not the ghost you think you are. It can't possibly
be ad hominem in this medium.
||I bite my thumb, sir, at [rcarty]. And when I bite my
thumb, it stays bitten.
||You must be typing with the other hand.
||The dream of bow suit will live on.
||You mean after the lawsuits?
||Fuck lawsuits, the Bow Suit Intl Ltd corporation will be
judgement proof from having no assets, including Bow Suit
concept that is public domain. Having no cash flow, nor
offices keeps BS ltd in the black despite the ruinated
personal finances of its executive who personally assumes
all losses of the company, and is a schizophrenic.
||The truth is, the conspiracy to stop Bow Suit has already
led to mass media manipulations. The 2012 BLADE
RUNNER murder was a transparent superimposition on
mass perceptions by interests that oppose Bow Suit.
The central figure in that tabloid rumour was
inadvertantly generating mass appeal for Bow Suit, and
this popularization had to be neutralized by an anti-
event of similar magnitude.
||Their aim is to cover up the reality of bow travel, and
the complexity its technological development will mean
for society. These Social Engineers have immense
power, and oppose any new revolutuonary technology
that enhances human freedom. Any new advancement
to freedom including Bow Suit limits their power to
control the masses.
||However they are secretly developing bow suits that are
far more sophisticated than a simple compound bow.
These suits are the FUTURE of armed combat, and the
simple sketches I have provided are mere crayon
drawings by feral state wards compared to the bow suits
that are actually possible.
||Put down the bong for a few days, man.
||I've also notived medicalized humour like that is
widespread, saying something regulatory like it's a joke. I
can smoke whatever I want until I'm in a blind stupor or
dead, and just bbecause someone has medicalized training
in the human meat industry doesn't mean they can go
around doing quality control and inspection on any among
the heads they please.
||Well words have power in definitions that people define or
not define and those that value those definitions and have
aspired to them and in the process actualized them, then
regulate those definitions. Sometimes the definitions are
quite stupid like 'posh' or 'lawful' and quite stupid things
occur on the level of discursive action.
||So basically design every idea with a small implosive payload of radical new anti-epistem.
||All I meant was that you need to restore the finely-tuned
instrument of delerium that is [rcarty] to a more
harmonious state. For the betterment of humanity you walk
a knife's edge, thus it is our responsibility to keep you in
balance. Now, you know I love the ganja. I'm not saying you
have to give it up. I'm asking you as stoner, Halfbaker, and
friend to stick your bong in the dishwasher and make a
couple batches of brownies. Give your CB receptors a
||That's fair, but if this is mostly about the dielectrical
material idea the point was simply that Rand's
objectivism is dialectical materialism. As collectivism
relates to the collective or society, or the mass, then
anticollectivism creates a kinesis that can be used to
generate power if retractile motor power cables
connected everyone together. But because the
productive flux is straining people will either stay
generally collectivists or generallly anticollectivists. The
idea therefore is to generate power using
anticollectivism, which is perpetual energy because the
collective, which is the people united, can never be
defeated. The mass which contains freeloaders feeds on
anticollective energy because the mass cannot be
||Its sort of a satire on America, because Ayn Rand
basically encapsulated the American ethos in her work
on objectivism. Although objectivism proper would be
sociology, and would suggest that the collective can not
be escaped, and that anticollectivists too form a
collective that requires shared values, norms and
identity. And that actually objective analysis proves the
work is satire, anticollectivism is absurd, and is meant
to produce constant
revolution. Anticollectivism from a sociological
perspective, the actual objectivity of social science,
MUST be absurd because it exists in a meaninglessness of
nothing being collective including meanings.
||In capitalism the proletariate are alienated by
bourgeoisie, the liberals. But in objectivism the liberals
are alienated by the collective. Sort of how unions were
affecting the bottom line of businesses, or I suppose
anticollective collectives. Rands objectivism is the
||Now consider the quatrenary social survey of political
collectives. Every four years collectives are measured
and reconstituted in a scale model of the country in
Washington DC, and in other similar democracies world
wide. Consider democrats more generally collectivists
and republicans more generally anticollectivists. This is
a dual group reification. I don't think Ayn Rand caused
it, but her writing certainly has had some importat
impact on discourses in this functional conflict.
||Don't forget that Rand herself was never as objective as
her philosophy espoused. She was lambasting socialism in
Harper's before it was cool because her entire family got
screwed by the Bolsheviks.
||So, this idea... is a pogo stick that can bear a grudge. [+]
||Yes [pertinax], and yes [alterother], my understanding is
she didn't arrive at her conclusions from objective analysis
but from personal experience, which is subjective.
||The makers of Ladder Pants PRO are interested in purchasing
rights to the Compound Bow Suit technology for performance-
enhancing upgrades to the pants.
||Thanks for your inquiry. Bow Suit International Ltd. would
be pleased to offer you the rights for any amount you care
to throw in a wishing well of your choice.
||I know an velocipede athlete who's looking for endorsement deals...(link)
||I fantasize about being decked out in full Compound
Suit on a daily basis. In my imagination pulling down on
the bows with full body weight, charges the entire bow,
and primes the bow for jumping. I know Bow Suit is
possible, but two 7 foot composite bows are not easy to
come by even with the immense financial resources of
Bow Suit International Ltd.
||Compound Bow Suit uses a unique pulley cam
arrangement that primes the integral pogo stick
tensioner with 99 percent let off. Meaning the bow
increases compression and tension by the additional
resistance of the pogostick, and the pulley reduction
means a 150 Lb operator can load bow suit with 15000
||Although that's only in theory. Compound Bow Suit will
probably be capable of the typical 60 to 85 percent let
off, allowing a 150 Lb operator to load 1000 lbs at 85
percent let off.
||Consider when imagining the dynamics of Bow Suit that
the operator is the main bow string, holding the limbs
with the hands and the attached Bow Shoes. Releasing
the bow tensions the ratcheting pogo stick that absorbs
some of the recoil each time until it is released by
