It's one thing to know there was a "mafdet lynx" and something entirely different to know you just found the passage leading straight to it.

What I would have you believe is that total work expended is weight times height times the reciprocal of the efficiency. What I would have you believe is that no amount of genius or pencil whipping will have any effect on this equation. Mother nature keeps her own accounting and doesn't care about engineers or misapplied equations and bad math.
