FOWChallenge-Pressure

~~~~~

~~~~~

pressure

continuous physical force exerted on or against
an object by something in contact with it.
~~~~~

If my memory is any good

…my Grade 6 teacher told us that

the pressure (per square inch) under

a woman’s high heel shoe is greater than

the pressure per square inch under

an elephants foot.

 

Fifty-one years later I captured these images

which may help explain why it is indeed

a lesser pressure under an elephant’s foot.

However, I try to keep my toes away

from elephants and high heels!  🙂

Didn’t want to look foolish so I just asked Google

“What exerts more pressure-per-square inch when walking

a 100 lb woman in high heels or a 6,000 lb elephant

in bare feet?

[At the moment when only the heel rests on the ground.]

(Stiletto heels have an area of about 1/16 of a square inch.

Elephants, unlike humans, walk with two feet

on the ground at a time.

Each foot is about 40 square inches.

Thus, the woman “wins” by far

more than 1,500 psi versus 75 psi.)”

a small, slender antelope that typically has curved horns
and a fawn-coloured coat with white underparts,
found in open country in Africa and Asia.

Our first sighting…

…of African animals.

 

Impala…

 

…the rabbits of Africa.

At least that’s what we were told

and have come to believe to be true.

You will always sight an Impala on a game drive.

Kudu

We were told that kudu burgers

were on the menu one night..

Tasted okay.

Fairly certain these are Springbok members

of the gazelle clan.

While the African wildlife…

…soon lost its novelty value…

…never, was an animal sighting less than awesome.

 

 

Although uncommon visitors to our car,

the Yellow Billed Hornbill was

a common sight during our African Safaris.

as we sorted out the itinerary.
