No, no , no, you can't time balls running down a curved trough, (beautiful image though it is), because you've got nothing to time them with, to confirm a constant transit.

You are all assuming a means of measurement, which itself cannot be measured as constant or consistent.

I like the idea of training someone to "perfect timing" but it still doesn't actually prove anything.
