If the force could be used to influence particles on the atomic and subatomic level, the best possible use for force power output could probably be in initiating fusion reactions. I don't have all the numbers right in front of me, but it is theoretically possible to get several hundred times the inp...

Re: What-If 0001: Relativistic Baseball

The main thing about 6.08(b) is that in the scenario, the ball is actually passing through the strike zone, therefore it doesn't matter whether or not he was hit or whether or not he swung. Therefore, the only possible way to avoid the strike is if the batter then manages to hit a fair ball (6.09(a)...

Re: Re:

Oh another crazy thing I do: when I'm bored, I'll imagine I'm talking to people and make up all the scenarios that are the most likely, so when I encounter them, it's simpler. Oooh, yeah, I do those imaginary scenarios too, though they never actually happen. me too. And sometimes I imagine totally ...
