It's got to be in with a chance of getting that award
c'mon, what's not to like?
I agree, there is no reason why 5 year olds shouldn't get the chance to work in marketing departments as long as their schooling doesn't suffer.
If you look closely at the diagram, you will see that the surface area around the positive grain 'bump' is larger than the surface area the 'negative grain' hole. If you take any surface, a bump naturally becomes a hole by turning that surface upside down. It's definitely a chicken and egg story. What we (are trying!) to say is that on a positive grain surface, the volume between the bumps is large enough to prevent the accumulation of dirt and hence the holds will keep their 'rough' surface for a long time. If there is a simple and clear way of saying (or showing) just that, we would welcome the input!
you just said it "the volume between the bumps is large enough to prevent the accumulation of dirt and hence the holds will keep their 'rough' surface for a long time"
you durty swines, not falling for your porny messages. crimp and pinch indeed, and as for optomising your finger position.
