Really the only interesting discussion about this is how sharp is the arc and where does it
get sharper, along with how does that relate to the path of the hand.
This straight line towards the target is a myth that is dead.
Don't change the subject. He said nothing about straight line to the target. Not even your Stan Smith that you quoted was doing it. It is your strawman - don't drag him to every place.
