Re: [infoguys-list] My final answer
- Dear Rudolf Kies -
You said, "'Rudolf"? You identified yourself well! But congratulation on
your newly acquired wisdom. Now, if you acquire "tact and manners" with the same
enthusiasm you might make a valuable contribution."
Then you said, "My comment to this group concerning an issue stated was
There was no provocation on my part to solicit insults! I only addressed one
single issue of the problem as stated and not the problem in its entirety."
Out of sheer respect of your septuagenarian status, I will respond "out of
Your crack about the "newly acquired wisdom" is shameful. Regardless of
your age, I have been a licensed PI in this State a little longer than you.
Having no knowledge of my education, my background, or any of my credentials
along with how many educational conferences and seminars I might have attended
through the years for CE, you address my wisdom?
I used to work "Accident Reconstruction" back in the early '80's. However,
since that time I have chosen to use engineers who specialize in same as it is
less time consuming on me although I still work 1 or 2 such cases each
How can you draw the conclusion that anything I said was meant to insult or
inflame you? How can you infer that anything I said was insulting? I do not
believe there was anything tactless about my response which I have inserted
below my signature line and more important, I cannot see how you can believe
my response lacked manners. I do not believe my response was disrespectful.
I stated my opinion which is what we were asked for to begin with.
Then you said, "It seems that education and tact in "Californians" are not
qualities." Since you are a Californian, you should know.
Lastly you said, "In the future I shall repent and not concern myself with
are none of my business."
Dr. Kies, your input is always invited and as a member of this group a
response to a legitimate inquiry is, in fact, your business. Defending yourself
in time of a legitimate attack is also expected and it is your business.
However, to come out and attack someone needlessly is out and out wrong.
With that said, I truly am sorry that you somehow mistook what I said for
anything other than what was intended. It was MY opinion based on the scenario
and circumstances provided. It was not meant as an affront to your
knowledge nor as an attack on you.

Although I do agree with the fact that vehicle weight is not included in
skid-to-stop velocity, the fact still remains that the vehicle weight is an
integral part of the "kinetic energy". In the case at hand it would appear
that there was no measurable velocity, no measurable friction coefficient
any measurable and dependable skidmark length. I believe the truck was
a fair amount of "slipping and sliding" even if "skidding and screeching"
were a part of the action.
Kinetic energy is the force behind a big-rig vehicle's impact damages when
"slipping and sliding" occurs.
