Early Site Swaps

Alright class, settle down. Site swap juggling has been around for a long time as you can see from this illustration from a 15th Century manuscript:

Now, if we could direct your attention away from the naked lady on the table, Dr. Salberg, you will see that there are two figures in the foreground who are clearly students of site swaps. Notice, for example, that the balls being juggled are not arranged in a neat semicircular arc going from one hand to the other, but are distributed in seemingly random heights and positions. Notice also, how the performers are being completely ignored by the audience, who, like Dr. Salberg, are far more interested in the nude woman who is performing some sort of flaming torch and baby balancing routine.

You will notice that the standing figure has just thrown a ball back over his head to his partner, and is about to take a replacement which is being held out by the kneeling figure in front of him. Clearly, I high level of mathematical analysis was required to create these transitions.

Your homework this week is 17340, a pattern which, like most site swaps, makes up in ugliness for what it lacks in interest.

Alright, class dismissed. No, Salberg, I don't know why she doesn't have any hair down there.
