Well, I've gotten distracted here with other posts. So many since I've been gone for 2 weeks! To think yesterday I was in Paris...Ah Pairee...the lights, the food, the women, the metro...stench!
No it was great! I shall post soon (I hope)
Oh, Do I teach at that place? hmmm...i...don't...re..mem...ber...
As for your other ideas...Your "atrocious short radius turns" sounds like an animal at the zoo. That beast won't prevent you from running a few gates. You might find after a while it's just a petting zoo.
As for "speed-it's scary!" - Certainly you're not "Unsafe at any Speed" or you wouldn't be here. You can cruise at your "safe speed". Where does it say in the "Running gates: a Manual" that one must go at a speed where they think they're going to leave their body and the earth? I assure you your speed will be faster than a turtle's and slower than Herman Maier's.
Now that I have dispatched your "reasons" against, here's one for.
Yes, I remember your "Gates without Tears" post. In it you made a brilliant deduction and coined the phrase "calculating my turn arcs" (I did not have to search for that to remember this). It is because of this that you have been selected to join LindaA,TCarey,and perhaps Bethany in their quest for Gates without Tears.
If necessary, Mark shall build the spaceship to take you there...
(Oh, buy the way...Just put on your goggles and the eyes won't tear!)
