Quick question for you to puzzle over.

What happens when an unstoppable force meets an immovable object?

Can you give an answer that would beat it? (I will be the judge of that)

WHAT? ETTA JAMES DIED?

In all honesty, I wasn't aware she was still alive. Nevertheless she was a great talent and a huge influence to many artists.

True. She was on both counts mate. Listening to Etta James on vinyl with headphones on is always a treat. Bitter sweet tonight ...

@ NinjaMandan' ... an explosion/ shattering ?

The unstoppable force continues moving at the same spped, but in an opposite vector direction; technically, it has not stopped, but rebounded. The immovable object does not change velocity or position.

@welsh

no, no explosion/shattering

@Rubrica

No, unstoppable as in not stopped or made to change direction, it must keep going the same way.

@EER

You are closest but not quite there. Good guest though!:lol:

There is no such a thing in the universe, but philosophically, time will stop and and the event will leak infinite energy, no doubt that would be God.!

Uh...no! The immovable object is in the way of the unstoppable force

Why can't the unstoppable force go through the immovable object?

Unless of course the immovable object was moving so fast it's atoms were vibrating at such a fast pace it would be able to phase through the unbreakable object.

If the force were made up of waves it could pass through the object with ease (such as sound waves travelling through a piece of paper). I guess it depends how dense the immovable object is, and what kind of material the unstoppable force is.

I know I'm probably wrong on this - but I just figured I'd through it out there :P

So I bought myself a pair of jeans the other day. Bright red women's skinny jeans that fit perfectly (only $15!).

Seriously, the guy's section is so boring. I'm not g**, I just want a better color palette when I go out >_>

..and that's my "off topic" post of the day.

EDIT: wait...has the PDN forums always censored that word? Heh...

Agreed about clothes and shoes

As my kids - girl/ stress causer (13) - boy/man/ sometimes total idiot (17) like pointing out ... I'm 45 so what do I know about fashion. They forget I was young once and used to buy clothes from companies advertised in indie music magazines. There used to be a lot of good stuff never seen in mainstream stores. Could be worth a look ?

Yes, but when (overall) I compare the cost of the female fashions to the male side of the store, I get sticker shock ...

That selection literally comes at a price.

Now, I will say having irregular dimensions (odd inseam to waist ratio and a long torso, large hat size, wide feet) that I find my shopping to be a nightmare regardless unless I go custom/tailored. Then I'm on the other end of the mulla spectrum.

Even though I dont want to put a bunch of indo-chinese children out of work (no I really dont, everyone's got to eat), I want my sci-fi machine that makes custom clothing already. Or at least a cheap online equivalent service ...

My eldest daughter (who is 12 going on to be soon 13) now wants to dress more "teen" Shopping with (and for) her is a nightmare, that is something I find hard to say being a "shopaholic" myself. As welshblue said we was young once (I still am, I'm only 32 and 3/4) There is still some unique clothing to be found in the high street (location depending of course) local clothing outlets have some cool stuff (not sure if a 30+ can say "cool" anymore) :D

And good for you UsedHonda, if your comfortable in them - why not wear them. :)

Yeah, and not only are there not many good selections for guys, but if there are they are often gangster style, I hate that style!

Do you not mean "Gangsta" :lol:

Well I do lack a lot of hair on my noggin to help complete that picture ... Just lacking the child like over-sized eyes to complete the feel without wearing glasses. With my glasses oddly enough, my eyes are about 1.3 times their normal size when seen from the observes standpoint ... (sigh)

I'm definitely getting old :(

When I was growing up Gangsters wore suits and any gold was discreet but tasteful. Guns were very rarely used. Knives were used to serve as a reminder not to kill

It's the swagger of some of the kids around here that make me laugh with the Gangsta look. Those jeans would annoy the frigg out of me, I always think they look like an advertisement for a weight loss programme. And most of them are from pretty comfortable households so have no reason to dis-respect anyone ... not dissing anyone here but when you're white, middle class or almost; the attitude/drawl/ dropping letters from words really isn't cool to those who don't get the image. My son isn't into that look but a couple of pairs of his jeans/ trousers are a bit sus' to me. Tight legs and a saggy butt and crutch ? What's that about ? I always think he's only missing a big toweling nappy/ diaper and the 'look' would be complete ... or starch to turn them into WWI army trousers :lol:

No offence meant to any resident Gangstas ... real or plastic. ;):P

Another sign I'm getting old ... Rambling. I only popped in say something to uH & Kemaru and laff/comment to EER's post.

@ uH and Kemaru ... @ your ages you could possibly through friends/ ask around/ possibly know or be one, meet some fashion design students and be their market research and models. Or a chance to buy bespoke clothing to help pay their way through college.

Why couldn't I have thought of that 30 years ago. :/
