Male athlete gets roasted for comparing period pain to skinned knees. Man down.

Estimate the Pulling Force of Boston Dynamics’ Robo-Dog Army

Rhett Allain In this case, the weight is still down but all the other forces have rotated to compensate for the angle of the incline. The important force here is the normal force.
