How to use bending in a sentence?

  1. Rufus T. Firefly:

    I can see you right now in the kitchen, bending over a hot stove. But I can't see the stove.

  2. Robert Sidoti:

    A lot of guys were saying 'I can’t touch my knees, let alone my toes. I would never go to a mostly women class and do things I’m no good at,' we rarely go into poses that require deep forward bending, twisting and binding.

  3. Elijah Cummings:

    I honestly don't understand why the White House is covering up for Michael Flynn, i don't get it, after the President fired him for lying — they should be bending over backwards to help us. It does not make any sense and it makes the American people think they have something to hide. There is a paper trail that the White House does not want our committee to follow it.

  4. Guy Houlsby:

    The original Darrieus turbine has blades that are parallel to the axis of rotation, and that means that the loads in the blades are carried entirely by bending of the blades. That results in very high stresses, the re-design that we've done changes the blades so that they form this triangulated structure, and that's a very stiff and very strong structural form. And that means that the loads in the blades are principally carried by axial forces and that means that the stresses are much lower.

  5. Aesop:

    The little reed, bending to the force of the wind, soon stood upright again when the storm had passed over.
