It is not really just a couple more golf balls but introducing unnecessary triggers and probability of fail. Who has the ultimate privilege in explaining this?

Re: Action vi: Up the inclined plane

I have another question, sorry if I seem like I'm asking too many of them. Can I roll a golf ball down a ramp, and then pull that golf ball back up that same plank and count it as the inclined plane action? I am concerned that there would be something in the rules that says that one cannot use the ...

Re: Action i: Gear ratio of at least 3:1

How can you claim a gear system is 3:1 if it doesn't do the rotations as expected?

Re: Action v: Screw and wingnut

But the rule says that the wingnut has to be threaded on the rotating screw and the wingnut has to move 2cm horizontal distance. The rule clarification and the rule seem to be different. How can a wingnut be threaded on a rotating screw and move only linearly. I can understand the concept behind int...
