John Hubley "Flat Hatting" (1946)

Take cover, that dare-devil pilot Murphy's going to dive-bomb beauties sunbathing on the beach. Shrieks of terror. The trouble is Murphy is bored, bored to distraction. No city or farm is safe from his antics. And it was all predictable from early childbirth. Why, as a boy Murphy dangled from chandeliers holding cats, chased girls round the playground. He'll come to a sticky end in the US Navy. The great John Hubley's little known short from 1946 is still funny and apposite today. I've got one such terror in the house this very second. But I digress. Made to demonstrate the perils of flying for kicks, Flat Hatting is a great find. As I have remarked before, animations never age if they are well made and this one is. What is it? 66 years old and wonderful to behold. Confident, surprisingly modern artwork and animation, easy humour, some terrific aerial shots of the countryside and cities. And that feature of the times, a tendency to moralise, albeit tongue in cheek and commissioned by the military. Great work from the master, Hubley. Just one problem - I think I'd be more like Murphy having seen what one can get up to in an aeroplane.

If you will compare the kind of animation we have today as from before, you can really see a big difference and changes. This is because of the development in today's technology, like the way we do measurement system.

Is there anything slowing the Earth's rotation down hermes outlet? Sure, but don't adjust your watches just yet. The forces changing the speed fendi outlet of the Earth's rotation make an extremely small impact. The tides, which are caused by the gravitational prada handbags uk forces between the Earth, the sun and the moon, produce tidal friction as they interact with the Earth http://www.cityofwestwego.com/home.asp. That drag adds about 2.3 milliseconds to our day every century [sources: Lunar and Planetary Institute, Ray]. Weather systems can change the Earth's rotation, with winds applying a braking force to the planet's surface. Finally, earthquakes can mess with the lv outlet length of the day by actually redistributing the Earth's mass. The 2011 earthquake that struck Japan actually accelerated the Earth's spin replica wathces (because it shifted the mass toward the equator) and shortened the day by 1.8 microseconds [source: CBS News].
