Welcome to America (and the surrounding countries such as the Caribbean, etc).
User avatar #284 to #274 - madmaninside (01/25/2013) [-]
I'm not from American or from any surrounding country. I have always put commas in between numbers. My mechanical engineering coming out in me you see, dots confuses the numbers.
#301 to #284 - painismysaviour ONLINE (01/26/2013) [-]
I thought it applied to other countries as well, but wasn't 100% which ones.
User avatar #260 - madmaninside (01/25/2013) [-]
A quick clear up I think. The density of a pound of bone is stronger than the density of a pound of untreated steal, thus making bone a more solid item. Bones in living things are porous. Some people have a more porous bone density, which in turn makes them break more easily, some are hard. But neither the less bones are porous. Untreated is steel is extremely brittle. If you were to hit a piece of untreated steal with a piece of bone that had the same mass and density qualities the bone would win.

useless facts
User avatar #249 - TheShortbusDriver (01/25/2013) [-]
Actually it was Bruce who had to slow down because the frame rate of the cameras could not record his speed smoothly.
User avatar #250 to #249 - TheShortbusDriver (01/25/2013) [-]
Slowing down the film would do nothing because the cameras still wouldn't have been able to capture all of his movements, & it would have turned out looking like Bruce was a cheap animation, cutting around the screen from frame to frame.

wat? how? ive managed to brake a bone for atleast 4 times, but i never managed to brake a steel anything
#294 to #248 - Sylphion (01/25/2013) [-]
What the person who made this failed to include was the term 'weight for weight'. I.e. a kilogram/pound of solid bone is stronger than steel of the exact same weight

thanks, bro. only now i see my own stupidity and all i feel is shame

That's because bone is porous - it's more like a sponge than a solid object. If you had a porous piece of steel, it'd me much easier to break than bone. Besides, steel's bendy and bone isn't.

Longest City name, I think:

Krungthepmahanakhon Amonrattanakosin Mahintharayutthaya Mahadilokphop Noppharatratchathaniburirom Udomratchaniwetmahasathan Amonphimanawatansathit Sakkathattiyawitsanukamprasit

It was then called Krungthep for short, which is Bangkok.

thailand does have the longest names. the king's name is all the last names of the rulers of each province from long ago. ******* long.
User avatar #240 - satanisthesavior (01/25/2013) [-]
Correction to the bone one: By weight, bone is five times stronger than steel. That means that a pound of bones is five times stronger than a pound of steel. However, the mass of the bones in our body isn't a lot, which is why they still break fairly easily. Think about aluminum, for example. You can't break an aluminum block, but you can easily tear aluminum foil. Use a small enough amount of anything and it will become easy to break.

kinda how spider webs are stronger then steel wire but we do 't use spider webs because we can't get enough. that and its kinda gross.
#251 to #243 - angelusprimus ONLINE (01/25/2013) [-]
Its not gross. Its just like silk, silk comes out of bug's butts too.
Problem is that one spider gives a very tiny amount of spider silk.

This may explain the strength of people who harden there bones through martial arts training. We have such potential! Unfortunately it does mess with the bones a bit though.

They had to slow down film for everybody back then.. technology wasn't as good at capturing high speeds like that.

>bone is stronger than steel

>breaks under 2 pounds of pressure
#252 to #229 - angelusprimus ONLINE (01/25/2013) [-]
lets say you are average man and are 5 foot 10 and weight 170 lbs.
When you run through jumping motion your heel bone supports weight of roughtly 800lbs without being near its stress limit.
So no, it does not break at 2lbs.
User avatar #255 to #252 - xoyv (01/25/2013) [-]
yes


in one direction
#256 to #255 - angelusprimus ONLINE (01/25/2013) [-]
Sure, in one direction, bones are calcium crystal complexes that serve a function.
Look at burj khalifa tallest building in the world. it is built to endure mind boggling stress. no one can say that is it anything but superiorly strong.
BUT if you laid it at its side, it would collapse.
Its all in how its function is needed.
