I have read a couple of comments here, and in my opinion a couple of points were off the mark. I do apologize for my spelling, english is not my first language and that most likely this will compete with the size of an novel. In the following I will try come up with some answers for some popular questing and maybe come up with some solutions. 
So ... What is feminism?   Voided of the historical word, basically all modern feminism is some brand of this neo-feminism, because the starting point for every feminist policy is "men are privileged", which in my opinion is a really weak argument today. Why is that?
         1.Let's say there is a gender gap, even if the studies are really conflicting and quite old, the 77 cents for a dollar comes from a research paper that's ten years old and doesn't properly quantified the data and to top it off is illegal.
         2.RAPE CULTURE!!!, if you seriously think that in a society in which you are presumed guilty for charges of rape and even if you are found innocent you will be demonised by your whole community facilitates rape, well ok.
         3.Objectification. First of all this has no concrete definition. Secondly we as male are objectified too. Maybe not sexually, but in case of an accidents, who goes first? Females are pretty object, males are expendable ones.
         4.Women are poorly represented in any political system, true, there are lesser female politicians than male, but you vote sex. It doesn't matter what policies the candidate brings to your table. A true voter should never consider the sex, height, even skin complexion of the candidate, only the policies relevant to me as an individual and to my community. This is the definition of democracy. You don't pick the person you pick his ideas, if not voting just turns it's self into a popularity contest. And now another argument for this, approval ratings don't differ from males to females, meaning that females are as content as males with their representatives even thou females are underrepresented. So as long as the voting process is fair and, believe it or not in most western countries males are not legally favored in election process, just the fact that we propose this problem is an affront to democracy. 
         5.Abortion, your problem America, and arguably feminism does a very bad job in this field, I say let's let it to pro-choice  liberals.
Now is such thing as male privilege?
Well as a male myself my wife is expected to outlive me by eight years in my country (Romania). I am four times more likely to have a brain condition. I am five times more likely to commit suicide. I get a higher jail time. And so on. 
As you can see it's not that one sided as you expect. 
Feminist say they want equality, but the fact is, they don't because they don't want to talk about this problems. 
They also claim that we are pretty much the same, but don't they belittle women,for example by not raising the jail time.
And now an interesting fact, even thou there is a real gender gap in some fields in my country, not that major, a male retires at 65 and a female at 60, average live expectancy is now 70 for a male and 78 for a female. So on average a male gets to enjoy 5 years of retirement and a female 18. 
So if you look at it from a wider view is pretty clear that objectively we are pretty much equal, we are not the same, but we do have the same rights. And you could essentially argue that in western countries is better to be a female.
So is feminism relevant in western countries? Yes. A new wave of extreme feminism is catching on in Europe. Although the truth is they have no real purpose anymore.
         The truth is all function of the current feminist movement in the west could essentially be fulfilled by general human rights activists.
         Now can feminism, in the general term, help women from the lets say middle east? Yes. Studies in India show that an empowerment of women bring benefits in population control and rise of HDI. But we can't just borrow from the West, we need a movement similar to what happened in America 1950-1970. We need to change the moto of the movement from "Men are monsters and we are entitled" to "We have the same writes as women".
         Now are MRA different? No. I agree with Kyle when he says "they are too butthurt". They practically use the same tactics, the difference is that they can't get away with the same bullshit.
         Now the most important question: Why the fuck am I so butthurt that I am willing to write this huge article on this piece? Well first of all I hate bullshit, and I think that clearly feminism is quite a big providers, but the problem is that feminism attacked unjustly two thing I love. 
         First of all, I am a big gamer. A big problem in the conmunity is that most hardcore gamers are quite misunderstood, and the whole Anita incident contributed to this. The problem with feminism is that some people are to gullible, and that's how basically a con artist managed, with very little skill I might add, to foul a lot of gamers and companies, the crowning jewel being all the conferences that she is allowed to hold, that simply promote anti-gamer thinking. If someone actually believes that what Anita did was actual beneficial for the gaming industry, you're an idiot.
         Secondly, I am an engineering student, so I love the STEM field. But simply the incident with Matt Taylor and the fact that on TED Talk I heard and indian "feminist" claim that the IT industry is sexist and multiple women, I emphasize a lot of women, told him they were raped in Silicon Valley disgust me, and also he didn't had a documented case or any type of evidence, but everybody believed him. Please feminist, or any other ideology, don't target STEM fields just because they are now starting to get mainstream media coverage because I guarantee you that STEM will solve our problems.
         Now for everybody that was willing to read this far, you have my sincere gratitude, and if you open to discussion believe me I am willing to change my views if the appropriate argument comes along and I await your comments.

Let's clear out some thing on the Dracula front. First of all he was part of the order of the Dragon, but he remain in the order for a very sort period of time, the nickname Dracula comes from his father Vlad Dracul. And yes dracul in romanian was for the common people at that time both dragon and devil. The part with drinking blood is just austrian propaganda against Vlad for banning their merchants. In Romania Vlad is considered a great and benevolent ruler.

Let's make the retarded point for the purpose of debunking this video that there was no religion before Jesus. So basically in the years after that the world was a utopia. I sometimes write huge comments on why some people are wrong, but you don't deserve it.

If you use the word true in a discussion about science then you don't have any clue on how the scientific method works. Science aims to build models that can be used to describe the real world. A model works or is correct if it passes all the test's given to it, meaning if it accurately describe a process and the changes are observed or not. The problem lies in the instruments used in observing not in the scientific method itself, that basically goes like this: you observer a phenomenon like the decent of apple, you look at it more in depth, meaning as example you measure the speed of the decent, you observe its the same acceleration, then you describe a model of the phenomenon, like the laws of motion, you make prediction based on the model, if this describes the world what will happen if, and you test them theoretically or in a simulation or in the real live. If the model passes all the tests the it is correct until other observation come and prove it wrong. And now to the point why should we trust scientists? Because let's say i can prove that Einstein theory of  relativity is wrong I would probably win a Nobel prize and a lot of money. It's in the best interest of most scientists to prove each other wrong. Don't fear the scientist fear the ones using scientific data to advanced their agendas. And to be sure, every time you hear a phrase that starts with "scientist say" google the process try to understand it and then see if you agree with it or not, or maybe even if the press presented it correctly. Then if you agree with it good if not then no problem. The process doesn't go anywhere just because we choose to not "believe" in the given model. And I bet that most of the people that claim global warming is not real don't have any clue what it actually implies. So the point is try to think for yourself if you aren't willing to trust scientists and prove them wrong, if you can't learn some more and try harder, if you still can't  well you may be wrong but don't feel bad you had a taste of the scientific method. And PS: scientific theory isn't the same thing as theory that we use in simple life. It Is basically an explanation of aspects of the real world based in observation and experimentation.

WOW WOW WOW Hold down there big guy. The point with they are hated because their from outside a group is true but, and there is a big but, they are not hated because their women. Everyone, including men, were absolutely despised when they tried to criticize video-games, as an example the Mortal Kombat incident. The only difference is, because they are women we care that they are hated. Second point Anita is a con artist, I won't explain why here look it up. Third, who is speaking on behalf of the gamers, all that I hear in the "press" is: "gamers hate Anita", "gamers are a horrible community", "why can't you gamers accept this", maybe there are some genuine concerns with the point of view of this women gamers as we like to call them. And these concerns where absolutely ignored. Why? Because gaming press is not really journalism. Have you ever seen an article on a major gaming site that looks objectivly on the points that Anita made? No pretty much all said that she is true 100% because this gives them some press credentials. And yeah is very easy to talk about women problems in today's press, doing actual journalism, well that needs mare effort. now comparing to youtube, when you can search and see many videos of women, because yeah you're a white male you're opinion doesn't matter if you don't support us, that debunk most of the points that Anita made. Now are games sexist? i think not, well not in the degree that Anita describes. The only competent example on sexism are in games that are morally gray, so you see a lot of stuff in them, but why do we care only about sexism I wonder?   The point of not being enough women in gaming, ok maybe I agree with that one, but can anybody just influence the press and in return the game dev as Anita and her kind is doing, definetly not. I wonder why didn't Anita make a game idea, you know that will cater to women, and proposed it to a game dev? O I get it not everyone can make a game, myself included. But the truth is that women are not a majority in the gamer community. Those numbers show that women are 45% of the community. The number is not acurate because it includes mobile devices. But But mobile gamers are still gamers. I really don't care what is a gamer, but you want to change the whole AAA community based on the audience of a different type of game. If women were really 45% on the whole community, then why is the industry catered to men, I would asume there will be games created for women them because money. But apparently they aren't. But the truth is that every game dev can create any type of game they want, is there money on the line at the end of the day, but you don't what more games for women, you want to change the medium, and to be clear a minority wants to change the medium and the industry, using the power of imature press to influence the game devs that need advertising on they're site. This is basically a principle of totalitarianism, a minority using means like propaganda to control a majority. But is not propaganda. The majority that refuses Anitas ideas are basically silenced by the press. For me fascinated in sociology is a very interesting case study. I think this novel has enough pages. Now to clarify some stuff. This is not my first language so please criticize my ideas not my way of writing and when i say imature press i meant relatively new, not that the person's writing articles are immature.

"Innovation is the key" but NASA is useless. NASA is on of the greatest innovator of modern times, and I'm not from the USA.Innovation doesn't happen instantly you need problems and constraints. And science doesn't make for the increased GDP. That is a joke. She speaks of invention of electric motor, which came by understanding electromagnetic fields and the laws of motion. It may seem like science is just a bunch of useless facts, how can you paint an masterpiece without seeing the canvas or color. This is how we engineers would feel without a scientific theory that can explain the world, and laws and principles that allows us to create such masterpieces in the modern word. So no matter how some people say that science is useless the only useful thing is engineering, the reality is that not industrial revolution started this trend but scientific discoveries some years earlier. .  And I repeat I'm an engineering student and I would like to pat myself on the back but you can't have innovation without merging and working on all four of the STEM fields. And even if I agree that modern economics is outdated, I think that the mental fallacies mentioned in this talk allows me to call this woman an idiot.

I see that this current comment thread is still current, so I would like to make a few comments. Excuse my english this isn't my  first language. First of all science is not looking for truth like most of creationist believe. Science is looking for a model to describe object in our universe and their interactions. The concept of truth is simply idiotic in the eyes of science. The theory of gravity and of motion, by the way gravity is a theory so if you think evolution is not "true" because is just a theory you can jump of a building because gravity is just a theory,creates a model that describes the movement of objects that we don't know to be true but it works. The BS of Creationism is just a story that canot be proven or dismissed by definition so it's not science. The bible is not gods word. It was writen and rewritten and the analysed the compiled by men. So all you creationist out there just believe the world of a few men from bronze age. If god really exist good luck to you.

How about you strap the center of gravity one to the support and let the other one just rotate, this should show how much the rotation force is affecting penetration. Alternatively you can use longer blocks  and shot it further from the center of mass.
