    Hi
    so just found out DS6 got into DYS - yay!

    For a minute, I found myself feeling very strange about it - like those cartoons when you get hit in the head - receiving something from someone which says yes your child is profoundly gifted was sort of overwhelming.

    Then I picked him up and he said, " you know why you can't create an infinite zip line - because of the friction - although maybe we could build one and we could just add energy periodically to compensate so you wouldn't slow down."

    So maybe the right place for us smile

    Just so you know, that's hilarious.

    Good luck with the zip line wink

    Congrats! I love what he said...it actually cracks me up. My DS5 would be a fast friend; he made a mobile out of magnetix last week and told me it could not truly be perpetual because of friction, lol!
