Forum game: Arms Race!

Post by Chainsaw man » Mon Oct 05, 2009 7:41 am

You remember cartoons like these?
The ones with the one oneupmanship one who had the most guns and more bang for his buck, from pistols to BFG9000s?

well here is where it all happens...
Post an Image of a gun slightly bigger than the last, ill start...

I say we skip the handgun-SMG-rifle-MG foreplay and go straight to the fun stuff.

'sup bitches, i herd u leik hypernovae?

Image

A hyper nova wouldn't just blow up a planet, like your shitty death star, it could potentially take out a large amount of solar systems depending on the star class. Basically? A hypernova is an extremely large star collapsing into itself, like a supernova (only 100 times more powerful) which immediately forms into a black hole after exploding. Those two jets of light shooting out? Pure plasma being accelerated close to the speed of the light by the sheer force of the explosion. Radiation? X-Rays from a hypernova are considered to be very bright... after traveling up to 25 million light years away from the origin of the explosion.

Considering that the only thing potentially more powerful than a hypernova in the universe would have been the theorized Big Bang, I believe I have won your little game. Adorn me with your praise and money. (Seriously, let me go set up a PayPal account, I still need Overgrowth :<)

Too bad, there is something more powerful.

Lemme introduce the quasi-stellar radio source, or quasar for short. It is the largest possible form of a black hole.

While your hypernova is just a little star exploding, a quasar is the implosion of an universe, creating an entire galaxy with just this black hole. :twisted:

Let me just point out that those last two have no real way of being harnessed as a personal or military weapon. I mean, Unicron was pushing the boundaries of 'arms' there, but you just shot it out of the park guys.

Uberbeard: Actually, you could use a star as a weapon. Pretty simple; I'm assuming the game allows infinite resources; obviously, not many people have access to tanks or nuclear warheads or Death Stars or Unicrons; and as I explain later in this rant, it is possible to, with the correct equipment, blow up a star.

*puts on his strictest debate hat*

Now, to Blackhole; while you make some convincing points, good sir, I believe you're slightly misinformed. A quasar is indeed a galaxy, and nothing more than that. It's not a singular event, unlike novae explosions. Obviously, the energy in an entire galaxy is pretty high; one in a super-dense galaxy is obviously super high; but how do you utilize it? A giant black hole in the process of accretion can't be begun by human means, nor controlled, nor stopped. It's like claiming the entire universe as a weapon due to all the energy present in it. Meanwhile, hypernovae are just the result of hypergiant stars dying out; in theory, anything that could break through to a star's core before disintegrating could detonate a star, like say, a series of giant thermonuclear warheads launched via equally giant railgun into the center of the star. Theoretically, not at all hard to do. Due to the fact that hypergiant stars, being among the biggest stars, are usually unstable and relatively short-lived anyways, it's not like trying to blow up a solid mass of rock. It's like throwing a hand-grenade on top of a wooden box filled with dynamite.

But an entire galaxy cannot, sir, be utilized as a weapon; while true that a supermassive stellar black hole in the process of accretion could gobble up a decent portion of the universe over a long time, there's no way to create, control, or end it, and in turn, impossible to classify as a type of arms. Ergo, due to this technicality, your quasar is disqualified as a potential weapon. Good day to you, sir.

You can't PWN with a system based on faith! If that were true, I'd be so much better at Gears..

I shall be back just as soon as I locate a picture of a universal singularity.

I missed the point were we were talking about singular events. This is the arms race, and a weapon is not a singular event. It's an object.
We're not fighting about who has the biggest explosion. All what matters is the object that creates the explosion, the gun.
So, according to that, your hypernova is incorrect. But you may send in a hypergiant star as your weapon of choice. ;)

Given the infinite resources, it is indeed possible to create and control an stellar black hole, and thereby the entire quasar it forms.
Stopping it would be a bit more complex, but could also be archieved.

In theory, this also applies to the quasar. The only difference that I have to do just a little more then blowing up a star.

Theoretically, creating a black hole also isn't hard at all. Due to the fact that galaxies already have a sufficient amount of energy, it's not like trying to implode a solid mass of rock. It's like throwing a photonic crystal laser beam into a compressor filled with near-to-singular plasmoids.
Wait... that also doesn't sound very easy, eh? :evil:

The way this thread went, I don't think arm type classification is a requirement anyway. And it would be just as easy to classify as your hypernova.
