Well, I'm glad it wasn't really someone being nasty. Although from what I understand (I didn't see any of it) his sense of humor is a little off. We try to keep things friendly here, and don't like to see that kind of thing, even in fun.

Does your friend like trains too? Have him join for real and make some positive contributions to the discussion.

I suspected something like this. BTW, enough with the emoticons, I might get a seizure!

Asking questions is not stupid. It shows you are interested in learning.

A worm gear is a gear shaped like a machine screw.The threads of a worm gear mesh with the teeth of a conventional "spur"* gear shaped like a coin with teeth around the outside. The wom gear must rotate several times to rotate the spur gear once. This arrangement of worm, and spur, gears is used for reducing the high speed of an electric motor's central, steel, "drive shaft"** to a speed that will let a locomotive roll down the track at a reasonable speed.
Basic physics says that a mechanism can trade speed for mechanical power. Thus while the worm & spur drops the speed it gains power. If you lock at the jack of your family's automobile, you will likely see a screw, which is another form of a worm gear. Turning the jack's handle many times, by hand, will slowly raise the car. It would be impossible for all but extremely strong, body builder, type humans to lift one end of a car without the jack. Low speed, but lots of power.

"Stupid" is a very mild description of the recent behavior of your "friend" who seems to think using cuss words, and mean-spirited insults of your layout, on this forum, is "new", or "funny." Both are older than the two of you put together, and wasting the time of good people trying to help you isn't amusing in the least.

* The name "spur" gear probably comes from the shape of the spurs a cowboy wears on his boots, and uses to control his horse.

** "Drive Shaft" is a very general term covering any long, round "shaft" that spins to move, or "drive" something. Today most passenger autos have front wheel drive, but older cars have a drive shaft that runs from the front-mounted engine to the rear wheels that drive the car. These old autos had a pronounced "hump" running down the center of the floor, to house the drive shaft. Modern heavy trucks and 4-wheel drive vehicles use a similar drive shaft arrangement.

He didn't either. He said your friend's behavior wasn't funny, and most people on this forum don't consider that kind of thing amusing.
