Default Why are stairlifts so slow?

Then you're just plain wrong. Days are gathered together in weeks. Next Wednesday is the one in the next week.

To explain, consider today to be Monday. When is "this Wednesday"? Everybody would agree that it's in two days time. How can next Wednesday be the same as this Wednesday?

that's a Wednesday, but have heard it for the Wednesday after that so if
it's important I would try to add additional information like: next
Wednesday (the 10th).


I say it my way because I'm right and if they turn up 1 week late or early, not my problem.

"6/8/2020" is less ambiguous that "6/8/20" (where 20 could be a day).


Agreed. There are two sensible ways to write dates - British and Japanese. Brits go from small to large (date, month, year), Japs go from large to small (year, month, date) - which is better for computer programs. The Merkin way is implausibly stupid, you go from the medium sized measurement, to the smallest, then to the largest.

I try to use the month abbreviation (Jun) and all 4 digits for the year.
Either "Jun 6 2020" or "6 Jun 2020" could be read unambiguously. The
little-endian form (6 Jun 2020) seems a little more readable since
there's better separation between the numerals.

Only when you're old. I was born in a house with the bathroom only upstairs. Never found it a problem walking or running up the stairs to use it. The only problem was sharing one bathroom between 4! If someone was having a shower, you could be tightening your muscles for a while. Especially annoying when you need to go in the middle of the night, usually woken up by someone having a shower, then having to stay awake until they've finished.

I imagine economics comes into play also. I small motor geared down is
cheaper than a larger, more powerful motor.

And are almost certainly designed by those who don't have
an incontinence problem and who don't realise the problem
that slow stair lifts can be for those who are incontinent.

Or maybe they realise that anyone with an incontence
problem would have something to **** in which isnt upstairs.

It's not just toilets. Imagine you're an infirm person upstairs. The
doorbell rings. You take quite a few minutes to get there, by which
time
they've left. Now you've missed your parcel and are expected to go
collect it from the post office.

Anyone with even half a clue in that situation would have a
smart doorbell which allows you to talk to the person who
has pressed the doorbell or knocked on the door using
your phone. And that works when you are in the garden
etc too and when you arent even home and need to tell\
them where to leave it so it doesn't get stolen etc.


There are plenty old folk who don't even have a mobile phone,


No reason why they cant get one when they need to do something
like that when they are no longer as mobile as they used to be.


This is the sort of old guy I'm thinking of:

Nope.

Irrelevant which is the next wednesday.

Never heard anyone use it like that.

The day after tomorrow. But its also next wednesday.

There are in fact a lot more than two. What matters is what isnt ambiguous.

Never seen anyone but a jap do it that way.

FLUSH the two subnormal sociopathic cretins' endless absolutely idiotic

Another typical retarded "conversation" between the two resident idiots:

Birdbrain: "But imagine how cool it was to own slaves."

Senile Rodent: "Yeah, right. Feed them, clothe them, and fix them when
they're broken.
After all, you paid good money for them. Then you've got to keep an eye
on them all the time."

Birdbrain: "Better than having to give them wages on top of that."

Senile Rodent: "Specially when they make more slaves for you
and produce their own food and clothes."

You need bathrooms on both levels.


Only when you're old.


Nope, its much more convenient when you arent old too.

The only multistory house I lived in for long had full bathrooms
on both levels and bedrooms on both levels too, the master bedroom
on the top level. Full kitchens and main rooms on both levels too.

Corse it wasn't a pokey little terrace house like so many of you lot have.

I was born in a house with the bathroom only upstairs. Never found it a
problem walking or running up the stairs to use it.


But much more convenient to have one on each level.

The only problem was sharing one bathroom between 4!


And the same with dunnys.

If someone was having a shower, you could be tightening your muscles for a
while.


And with a bath even longer.

Especially annoying when you need to go in the middle of the night,
usually woken up by someone having a shower, then having to stay awake
until they've finished.


Never had that in any house with just one bathroom.

More likely due to the equation : power x time = energy

Rearranging: Power = energy / time


The energy required is, more or less, constant regardless of how long it
takes. Do it slowly, and you need less power. Do it quickly and you need
more power.

Small motors are cheaper, lighter etc.

Weeks start on Monday, since Sunday is part of the weekend.

I imagine economics comes into play also. I small motor geared
down
is
cheaper than a larger, more powerful motor.

And are almost certainly designed by those who don't have
an incontinence problem and who don't realise the problem
that slow stair lifts can be for those who are incontinent.

Or maybe they realise that anyone with an incontence
problem would have something to **** in which isnt upstairs.

It's not just toilets. Imagine you're an infirm person upstairs.
The
doorbell rings. You take quite a few minutes to get there, by which
time
they've left. Now you've missed your parcel and are expected to go
collect it from the post office.

Anyone with even half a clue in that situation would have a
smart doorbell which allows you to talk to the person who
has pressed the doorbell or knocked on the door using
your phone. And that works when you are in the garden
etc too and when you arent even home and need to tell\
them where to leave it so it doesn't get stolen etc.

There are plenty old folk who don't even have a mobile phone,

No reason why they cant get one when they need to do something
like that when they are no longer as mobile as they used to be.

This is the sort of old guy I'm thinking of:

And siri has been full time now for a long tine, no need to press the

And the point flies over your head yet again.


Nope.

Most old people do not want technology!


That is complete and utter drivel. ALL of the ones I know
have a mobile phone except one and his wife has one
and a computer too.

I also know that a lot are designed so badly that if they stall for more

You become neutral or, in other words, it. You are definitely not female
if castrated. I see you do not understand the basics of anatomy.

Besides, castration does not entail removal of the penis.

I'd have said the ability to produce appropriate hormones. Get yourself

A woman. They still have ovaries.

As a castrated male, you will lack testicles hence no testosterone worth
mentioning but, since you have no ovaries you will not be female.

You really did hide behind the door in anatomy class, didn't you?

Electric motors have 100% torque at stall.

Not induction motors. or even shunt or mermanent magnet motors.
Series wound DC or universal brush motors do -Max torque at minimum
RPM, minimum torque at max RPM - all due to a phenomenon called
"counter EMF". MOST chairlifts today use a permanent magnet DC motor
which still has reasonable starting torque - but overloading a
permanent magnet motor can actually demagnetize the permanent magnet
to a fegree. Not as seriopus a problrm with newer rare earth magnets
as it was with alnico.

I am pleased to see that you at least know the difference between a

that you all have two heads."

Birdbrain: "You're the one that likes hairy legs remember?"

Senile Rodent: "The problem isnt the hairy legs, it's the gross inbreeding
that
produces two headed unemployables like you."

Birdbrain: "So why did you mention hairy legs?"

Senile Rodent: "Because that's what those who arent actually stupid enough
to shave their legs have."

Birdbrain: "You only have hairy legs if both of the following are true:
1) You're quite far back on the evolutionary scale.
2) You haven't learned what a razor is for."

Senile Rodent: "Only a terminal ****wit or a woman shaves their legs."

Birdbrain: "There is literally zero point in having hair all over your
body."

Senile Rodent: "There is even less point in wasting your time changing what
you are born with."

Oh my god, my neighbour has a landline phone with three handsets which connect by radio. The problem with technology is the ****wits that design it. These things have FOUR volume controls. He came round asking if I could sort one of them that was way too quiet to hear the other person speaking. I found an amplify button on the side, a volume control on the front which controls ringer volume or speech volume depending if your on a call, those two repeated again in a menu, and another hidden one I found by mistake (after going to the trouble of taking it apart to check for loose solder connections to the speaker) - apparently pressing the green "pick up" button again makes it louder. Why have 4 controls to do the same ****ing thing?!

But you just said "You arent female until you have a **** and tits", so the flat chested woman is by your definition not a woman.
