would it? Is that some jargon for me to memorise?
are you a salmon?
otherwise I'd have smothered myself in garlic and butter and devoured myself long ago.
What about humans though?
but its techincally impossible to swim uphill isnt it. if the water comes down at a gradient too steep, then it going to be too quick and broken up to swim into. like a waterfall.
will be key, I Ken Moncur.
I'd definitely watch a youtube clip of someone swimming up a waterfall though. Possibly twice. I'd even bookmark it.
or is there actually a famous person called Ken Moncur?
In response to your question, wouldn't it be a bit like THE TRRRRAVELATORRR in Gladiators?
I liked the idea of a super-futuristic hybrid.
It'd be tough, but I think swimming uphill would be very satisfying upon completion
cause when a lake gets deeper it's actually like a hill, isn't it, just underwater!
I'm afraid. try again.
I cant really remember. But what about the swimming bit? I'm thinking of streams, nothing but streams and/or rivers.
the water level would naturally level would it not but yes in terms of a river or something.
in a stream and it was flowing at a fairly shallow angle downhill, you could swim up it?
What do you reckon the maximum angle is of a streams downward flow before you can't swim up it?
if the current isn't that strong I guess
the angle of descent of the stream/river, coupled with the rate of flow of the water (which is inextricably linked to the angle of said stream/river) determines whether or not it will be possible.
Plus how strong a swimmer you are. I reckon Ian Thorpe can swim up some brutal streams.
If I was in any way mathematically capable I'd present a formula to represent this assertation. But I'm not.
