U_i*U_i=U_x * U_x + U_y * U_y +U_z * U_z. (3). So, for the Pitot probe to measure it, it must be able to measure U_x, U_y, and U_z instantaneously. (which is not possible)

There is no personal connection between the message and the person's name attached to the message. (2). e-mail is an option for private communication. (3). One of the reason why Pitot probe can not measure the instantaneous total pressure or velocity is that one must align it to the flow direction instantaneously. And at the same time, the flow direction is unknown. (4). When a message is posted, even though there is a name attached to the message, in reality, the personal connection is no longer there. The message becomes public and the subject of interest is the message, not the name attached to it. (I hope we all understand that rule. "you is not you")

Impertinence serves no positive purpose whatsoever, and there are plenty of websites where people can turn to insult one another without having to see each other in the eyes. I presume (or at least hope) most users will agree that common decensy deserves a place in this forum. Lars Ola
