Tippy toesTiptoe — Web-search counts confirm that it is appropriate to move the article "Tippy toes" over the rediret "Tiptoe", which is a redirect back to "Tippy toes". In the wikipedia, there are more articles containing wikilinks to the "Tiptoe" redirect than to the article "Tippy toes". I think that "Tippy toes" is used, but not as much as "Tiptoe". Also, at the present time, "tiptoe" is found in the wiktionary, but "Tippy toes" is not." To me, "Tiptoe" seems the natural choice for the name of the article. --Snowman (talk) 17:46, 6 February 2011 (UTC)

  • Support; the current title is practically baby talk. Powers T 12:48, 7 February 2011 (UTC)
  • Support per John Keats: "I Stood Tiptoe". Septentrionalis PMAnderson 20:33, 7 February 2011 (UTC)
  • Support My spontaneous reaction also was that it sounded childish. Another one is that it should be spelled "tip toe". walk victor falk talk 22:01, 7 February 2011 (UTC)
    The OED has no quotations which use two words; three or four out of a couple dozen hyphenate. Septentrionalis PMAnderson 02:25, 8 February 2011 (UTC)
Yes, hyphenate, "tip-toe". Sry, spelled wrong. walk victor falk talk 05:43, 8 February 2011 (UTC)
Pocket Oxford Dictionary has "tiptoe". Snowman (talk) 08:48, 8 February 2011 (UTC)

Physics of rotationEdit

The section on rotation seems to be a mix of fact and folklore. Reducing contact area does not reduce frictional force. However, standing on one foot might increase rotation due to (1) reducing the radius at which frictional force is applied, thereby decreasing its torque, and (2) reducing the moment of inertia by concentrating mass near the center of rotation. This needs some cleanup. 73.170.41.47 (talk) 07:54, 5 April 2017 (UTC)
