Hi all,

Thanks for your comments, info, ideas and references.

I've found the plots that Tim Shoppa pointed me to, and they
are a good response to my original question.

It has been interesting hearing about the jumps of pendulums
too, this was new to me.

Also I argue from the discussion that, while there has been in general a lot of speculation and study on the jumps of 
crystals, this didn't happen for pendulums. Quite obvious, as 
industry and military need crystals, not pendulums.
