"massive damage" I don't think we care whether or not she'd be OK, we want to know what KIND of damage she'd sustain

 

Which was the point I was trying to make. :/

Did any of you read the article?

 

This study was done by a student, as part of a homework assignment.  Yes, it was a science student, but people fretting that scientists are wasting valuable time and money on this research don't seem to realize that at the end of the day, this was just someone's homework assignment, and the prof was probably just trying to make it more interesting, by asking them to examine pop-culture scenarios.  It's like a science class version of "Mythbusters".

I think he was trying to make a joke, because seriously, why would anyone seriously put any real consideration about Miley Cyrus and her Wrecking ball video...besides, Betty White did it better :trollface:

I guess it's a pet peeve of mine, because the media loves to report "scientists do oddball study" stories all the time, and pretty much every time you look into it, it was just a student.

70kg would be Miley Ciru's weight, right?

 

She doesn't weight that much. For 70kg you need a really tall woman or a normal chubby one. She's neither.

 

My guess would be around 60kg. Maybe even less.

If scientists do things like this why not find out how many people it takes to do something useful.

Thank you for demonstrating exactly the kind of ignorant remark I was talking about earlier.
