You are to prove Rancho's simplified definition. You may use Chatur's definition, but that is not needed.
Any questions may be asked in the comments section and comments section only. I will try my best to answer them at the time that I am awake. Cheating, swearing and forfeiting is discouraged. Evidence is encouraged.
Just want to see where you go with this.
I am not accepting. I rarely debate anymore.
I don't want to reveal the points I will make on the debate. Are you not going to accept the debate? if you are accepting it, come at me. If you are not accepting this, I will DM my resolution.
"A machine is anything that reduces human effort" is a simple definition for the purpose of discourse. It is correct in that it gets the point across with minimal effort. There are of course things which would fit inside it, which we would argue are not machines, even while they are being used as such.
"Machines are any combination of bodies so connected that their relative motions are constrained..." is a much more exact definition, which was apparently the correct one within the fictional classroom.
Why is this correct?
Very funny clip. I would say that it's a correct definition, even if not all inclusive.
