Pay attention! Spit out your gum! Sit up straight!

Your limit of positive stability CANNOT be more than 180 degrees. Think about it. It could possible be around 160 degrees, possibly. But it certainly cannot not be in excess of 180 degrees. It is impossible to maintain any positive stability beyond 180 degrees. Once you et to 183 degrees YOU HAVE TRULY CAPSIZED and you are on the way back up on the other side. That is not" self righting".
I was wondering about that. But then my Juicy Fruit started tasting really good and...isn't 183 really just 177?

Talk about circular logic.

PS - I just stuck my gum under Brent Swain's home-made desk. Heh-heh.
