I was watching some wind farms, and wondered why the older, smaller ones go 
slower than the huge new ones. I could think 
of some engineering reasons that might apply.

Then it occurred to me that it might by the same thing as airplane propellers 
run into, tips going supersonic?

Those long blades are longer than a semi trailer. Destabilize them, and they 
could fly off wipe out a farm.

Mach ? Moose

What if the Hokey Pokey *IS* what it's all about?
