Double True, however I hoped scientists used vector matrices instead of grammer fornification.

dude, i understand your logic completely, because you actually wrote it down for me to concentrate on; it also helps to have the algebraic expressions, awesome. IM GONNA CREATE A TOMAHAWK NUKE NOW! :D

So it shouldn't be in the alternate timeline where Biff stole the almanac?

I'm a man what needs graphical representation to grasp things - here's a graph, here's x & y, here's a couple of lines, and boom, I've got it. BUT - you introduced the terms "should be" and "shouldn't be" - which finally make sense. Thank you.

yet I still don't get "subtracts is from isn't, or isn't from is, whichever is greater"... if it knows one and not the other, how can it know which is greater ? we're talking about [x,y,z] position as a quantity ? Dammit! I need a drink

Pfft, vector matrices pwn whatever the hell they were trying to do.

I don't really like this fad, but you put a fair amount of effort into the whole concept.

Hey, someone needs to explain to me what he means by subtract "where it should be" from "where it wasn't". Aren't those the same thing? Wasn't the point of the "corrective command" to move it from "where it is" to "where it isn't"; so aren't "where it was

(continued from last comment) ... ; so aren't "where it wasn't" and "where it should be" the same place? I thought I had it figured out till he said that.

I was in the kitchen, and I'm not outside, and I'm also not in the kitchen so.. I must be on the internet... anyway please enjoy http://gaymissile.ytmnd.com/

Birmingham -- Yeah, where it wasn't and where it should be are the same place... It shows that on my site, with equal signs showing all the things it can be. ("Be All You Can Be".. hehe.)

what he basically means is that the missile he does the fly fly from here to there.

all i can get out of this is they really don't want you to know how the missile works, so they make up a bunch of pseudological crap

Go for it, JoeDude. Print whatever you like. On a side note, I just do these ytmnds whenever I get inspiration; I'm not seriously into this site like some people. Once in a while I'll pop up with a good one, but they're usually just around a 3 or so. :-P

When they say 'where it should be', that means where it is. It doesn't know exactly where it is, but it knows where it should be. So subtract that from where it isn't and you get your variation

MY ENTIRE PERCEPTION OF REALITY HAS BEEN COMPRIMISED!! my mind should be in understanding but it isn't, but by holding Ctrl+z for a given amount of time I can effectivly rewind to when I knew where I was and where I was not. from there I can determine my navigational coruse (whatever link I click next) by subtracting my final destination from my current positon or vice versa, whichever one is greater. If calculated correctly I will arrive at the objective and complete my internet browsing experiance.

The guidance subsystem uses deviations to generate corrective commands to drive the missile from a position where it is ("A") to a position where it isn't ("B"), and arriving at a position where it wasn't ("B"), it now is. Consequently, the position where it is

Consequently, the position where it is ("B") is now the position where it wasn't, and it follows that the position where it was ("A") is now the position where it isn't. In the event that the position that it is in ("C") is not the posit

it too may be corrected by the GEA. However, the missile must also know where it was ("A"). The missile guidance computer scenario works as follows. Because a variation has modified some of the information the missile has obtained, it is not sure just where

it is not sure just where it is ("C"). However, it is sure where it isn't ("B"), within reason, and it knows where it was ("A"). It now subtracts where it should be ("B") from where it wasn't ("C"), or vice versa, a

and by differentiating this from the algebraic sum of where it shouldn't be ("C") and where it was ("A"), it is able to obtain the deviation and its variation, which is called error.
