    Football to the Face

    Ouch, that looked like it hurt. I swear it looked like the poor bloke's eyeball got squished a little there. It's actually kind of interesting, because it shows just how much momentum was transferred from the ball to his face in such a short time, too.
  10. The square cube law only partially applies here. While it's true that within a SPECIES, larger organisms are less energy efficient, AS a species, larger species are actually more efficient and more likely to survive. While its entirely possible that Godzilla would collapse in on itself, it's also possible that, if it were to evolve naturally, it would actually have a fighting chance.
  11. I can think of two wild yet simple explanations, both probably incorrect but still worth thinking about. The first is that we're inside a computer simulation, and physics is just a giant attempt to understand what the computer is thinking. The second, and slightly more likely, is akin to folding a piece of paper and having an ant move from point a to point b instantly. Simply put, there are other dimensions that we don't fully understand yet, and because of those dimensions, it's possible to bend three dimensional space such that point a is technically touching point b, similar to an ant. This

    Mafia 3

    Does that mean that it gives collisions that would normally be seen as small a larger affect? For example, t-boning another car will actually damage your car pretty seriously too?
  13. What if it were only created in a specific space, such as inside a cube filled with some liquid that could have its density changed rapidly? Either that, or use some light emitting device to outline the image, then have it emit the light and move as necessary. Do you think either of those could work?
  14. My only question is do you think this will ever be practical? Given the precision of the instruments involved, if anything moved, the entire illusion would fail. What I'm wondering is if something like the Metal Gear Solid cloaking suit would ever be possible.
  15. This Thursday, the Irondequoit High School Philharmonic Orchestra and Choirs will be performing their major works concert at the St. Mary's Church, right next to the Geva theater. It's quite the interesting concert to perform, in that we're all playing in an unfamiliar venue, and have had only a single day where we ALL got together to practice. Oh, and it doesn't help that the acoustics in the church are terrible, arguably only a little better than the IHS gymnasium. Why are they terrible, you ask? Let me tell you. In a real theater or concert hall, the entire venue is designed with the a
