ELI5: Why is carbon fiber often used as a stick to hit objects in sporting goods

Things like Badminton rackets, Tennis rackets, golf clubs, softball bats and hockey sticks. I know its light and all but what are the other reasons why is it used as a stick to hit objects? Can someone give me a detailed answer?

Edit: Is tensile strength an important factor to making these sticks if so why?

Edit: Since this post booming might I ask are there any other benefits to Carbon Fiber in sports equipment that most of us don't know? Explain why does the certain sport play or know is enhanced when you use carbon equipments. (What are some weird sports that have carbon fiber equipments and why)

Edit: I should make a video with all this information. Would benefit me if I could get some Carbon Fiber facts that are not found on google. Like other than the advantages of carbon fiber I'm pretty sure there are disadvantages carbon fiber in certain sports applications and applications in general we should know.

Edit: Why isn't Carbon fiber used in every sports? What are some sports that Carbon Fiber isn't suited for and why?

Edit: Would like to know more about stiffness and strength, corrosion resistance, X-ray transparency, Low CTE (Coefficient of Thermal Expansion), Chemical resistivity, Thermal and electrical conductivity and its effects on the sports you play or know about.

TIFU by eating 8 chocolate fiber bars before a long car ride with family and experiencing the most absurd gas leak in history.

This happened a year ago, but I just remembered this horrific event and the poor victims that never fully recovered. I was set to go on an 10 hour road trip through the interior of British Columbia and with me were 2 of my cousins and my uncle. However, before our 6am start I decided the night before to wolf down these chocolate chip Fiber One granola bars that had something like 75% of your daily fiber intake. These things were crazy good and I ended up eating an entire 8 pack of them in one sitting. After that I went to sleep and woke up in the morning to a bloated stomach but felt fine otherwise. 45 minutes into our ride the cramps began. My stomach grew larger and larger and I ended up needing to remove my seatbelt, and undoing the zipper on my jeans to give it more space to expand. My cousin next to me couldn't believe what he was seeing, he said it was like the blueberry scene from Willy Wonka. I couldn't hold the gas in any longer and asked my uncle to pull over, which he did and I struggled to get out of my seat as every move was agony. I waddled to the back of the car and let her rip. A thunderous roar escaped me like an asshole racing his Harley Davidson around the block on a Sunday Morning. The gas hissed out of me as my stomach grumbled, shuffled and shuttered. I am not exagerrating when I tell you that this fart lasted AT LEAST 15 seconds. Little did I know that I had just broken the seal and I would proceed to experience uncontrollable and obnoxiously powerful farts that lasted 10-15 seconds on average, with only a brief period of relief between said farts.

The fact of the matter was that I was now experiencing major flatulence every 2 to 3 minutes, and we couldn't stop the car every few minutes to escape the smell, so we decided to roll all the windows down and allow me to let loose whenever I needed. However, we had no idea that this would become a much longer ordeal than we initially thought. Truth be told, I couldn't stop farting for nearly 7 hours, and each fart just HAD to be more epic than the last. By the time hour 2 rolled around, my anus was sore and aching, and my insides feeling like shards of glass were ripping through me. And the smell had become so overpowering that we had to stop at a gas station and buy as many air fresheners as we could. I took one of the air fresheners and sat on it in the hopes that each fart will be freshened up - instead it just smelt like rotten eggs and pine. My cousins and uncle resorted to using Vi

Spectrum assessed my fiber optic options today, can anyone give me more knowledge about what I'm looking at ?

I recently moved. I won't go into how awful the internet is here, ive vented enough. What you need to know is it's Hughesnet satellite, barely 3 MB/s download (on a good day) average .5 MB/s.

I called spectrum and a technician came out tonight. This is the property he drove down , I live at the white dot in the top half of the picture. In all aspects it's beautiful, isn't that such a cute little heart shaped pond? And the windmills, it's almost sublime in the morning. However, in regards to the 21st century the technician was bringing with him, the property might as well have been in a moon crater. Now, it's pretty impressive that there's satellite internet and TV out here, even phone hook ups. These are the wires right outside my house , basically road side telephone poles. In the first picture of the property, you might notice a straight driveway right down to our house from the road, versus the one that curves in front of the first house then connects to ours. Unfortunately during winter, this driveway is unusable. For reference, the distance from the house down the driveway to the road is 2500 ft

Here's what the technician told me. Basically, they'd have to lay a fiber optic cable down the entire length of the poles. Now, having the poles makes that pretty simple in terms of setting them up, a bucket truck will need to install them. However, my driveway is very thin, a Ford 3500 gets down here no issues, and that's a dually, so I figure a bucket truck will be fine, but the pain of construction might cause issue.

The main issue is the length from the road. He told me they don't have any cables above 2000 ft, so they'd have to use a splicer if they wanted to connect them in field, and he told me that was a big if. Here's where I start getting confused, I'm not sure what it means to splice the fiber optic cable. I understand it means connecting two cables in some way, however I'm confused at what is actually set up, is the splicer something they leave for it all to work or is it like a field tool kit they can use on call for connecting two cables? He didn't get too much into this, but what are the issues with splicing? He did mention they sound set up a "green box" I'm not sure if he meant leave it or not And if I dare ask for my specific situation, what cost am I looking at?

So, if this was just for leisure, I would adapt. Honestly, I'd love to take advantage of this beautiful living spa

Dear gay bottoms, If you’re spending a lot of time in your toilets prepping, remember... fiber is your friend.

I was this person who never realized the importance of fiber in diet or fiber via supplements and used to spend hours prepping myself to stay clean for hours, almost destroyed my rectum using the douche which I will say is very harmful, so don’t douche often.

But one suggestion out there to all my fellow bottoms, please eat fiber rich food and maybe take fiber supplements.. the only way to stay clean outside is to cleanse your colon from inside... I know it’s okay to have bad experiences but to prevent yourselves from getting embarrassed before your top.... do what I said... increase your fiber intake... shit out everything you eat so that way you will spend less time in the toilet and also stay cleaner from inside....

Thank me later for this, haha.
