I don't know how to calculate where the plastic will land, but it will probably land on your exhaust system [cheeky]
This ain't the matrix. Random is the perfect word for plastic bag-like debris, there is no algabraic formula for the predetermination of the next shift in real space. That being said I've learned that bigger debris like boxes, trash cans (yes a large plastic trash can) and stuff tend to do the following - With almost any vehicle passing it will A) be drawn towards the vehicle as it passes B) it will be pushed away from the vehicle in the draft. The larger the vehicle the greater the shift in location. B escalates as each car passes and/or with air movement. Such that a box can traverse three lanes of highway at a very quick pace.mossimo said:Anybody have any tips on avoiding the, for lack of better terms, drunken flying crap. Like a plastic bag that keeps getting tossed by the wind from passing vehicles, how do you calculate where it will land as you pass? My tactic has been to continue on and react as I pass. Any thoughts?
I was a teenager once, still wonder WTF I was thinking/doing. Or maybe he just dropped his smoke and had to find it.Mac900 said:I was in a long line of cars moving through a traffic coned lane a couple of weeks ago. A lowered Honda Civic unexplicably darted to the right & center punched one of the cones before jumping back into our lane. <snip> still wonder WTF did he move out and hit the cone in the first place?
My MSF trainer called it the 'lunch rule'. If you can eat it all in one sitting, don't even TRY to avoid it. If you can't eat it all in one go, do what's necessary to NOT hit it.Kinda the same rule for critters too.
I never want to run wildlife over, but I'm not going in the ditch to save a squirrel.
Hmmm... that works for a skunk too, in spite of the small size. [laugh]scoprire said:My MSF trainer called it the 'lunch rule'. If you can eat it all in one sitting, don't even TRY to avoid it. If you can't eat it all in one go, do what's necessary to NOT hit it.
