now make them build one in russia then ill laugh.
What is that red on the building? Blood? What?
The World’s Largest Jelly Donut was destroyed for this experiment. Just another mark against die-cast fans.
I…I like die-cast toys.
That’s not a problem; if you think that because they are metal they are automatically mode durable than plastic, then that IS a problem. From Willis’ view, anyway. I don’t give a crap.
He’s talking to people who complain about plastic and think only die cast I think. So I take it he’s saying quit being dummies, there is a reason for the plastic.
I think I’m missing something… there must be a reason this is supposed to be funny.
I really can’t agree with Willis’ logic, and I don’t see any irony…
Also, I can’t help but point out that nobody would have been in that building; the building would never have met the building codes if it were built like that on a fault line.
“I really can’t agree with Willis’ logic,” was referring to the example of the building having anything to do with the toys.
Sorry, just had to clear that up real quick.
They are childrens’ toys. Children can be pretty rough on their toys. Maybe not as rough as an earthquake would be on a building, but that’s the point of the comparison.
Oh, I can. Die-cast toys simply do not undergo any sort of force analogous to the ones that would take down a building made of rigid materials without extreme circumstances. The scale is simply far too different.
Shake it, drop it, throw it against a brick wall with all your strength, and you’re just not going to snap any parts but the thinnest. (You will scuff the crap out of it, though.)
Tell that to my Bionic Six figures, now long Frankenstiened with parts from cheap G. I. Joe ripoffs to replace broken diecast limbs. Or all my badly dammaged diecast figurines sitting next to the in much better shape resincast ones, many of which have gone through more moves.
I think what Willis is getting at is that things that don’t bend under pressure tend to simply snap, where as things that do will flex under pressure and generally as a rule, receive less damage.
Perfect example of this is Secret Wars figures versus Marvel Legends. The more “rubberised” plastic making the Secret Wars toys means more of those are intact after 20-someodd years than Marvel Legends hard plastic (which has a tendency to snap while getting the toy out of the blister pack).
Not that you need it to be built on a faultline. Just make it tall enough and the wind forces will shear it for you.
This seems like something Mike would do.
I’m pretty sure Mike is involved
