2. Elmo says:

The formula: 0=11xC/L+5xQ relies on the angle, grip and quality of cracker to determine the best way to guarantee success.

Mathematical analysis has determined that 0 is the optimum downwards angle, while C stands for circumference of the barrel, L the length of the barrel and Q the quality of the cracker.

Q has a value of 1, 2 or 3 depending on whether the cracker is cheap, standard or premium.

The formula ought to produce a two digit figure between 20 and 55 degrees, which the optimum pulling angle below the horizontal.

Crackers should be gripped approximately one inch from the end of the tail closest to the barrel.

The tail should be kept in line with the barrel as it is pulled backwards and downwards, with an even force.

So that’s why they call it the ‘old guard’.

Remember, the UK has a special relationship with the US. They stand ready to stand up and fight alongside us … as long as we let them use their cane.
