What about a hammer? Or taking the heat sink off like the other dummy.

Childish I say, very childish.....

Your supposed to come to Toronto, go up the elevator on the C.N. Tower (Worlds tallest free-standing structure) and drop it out a window....thats what I say....
j/k.....just out of curiosity tbirdinside...whats the point of this post?
It's just goign to start another flame war.....don't take what I said seriously.....
If you wanted to know what I seriously think, than do what i said, but also drop a bird and see which CPU hits the ground first, now thats what I call a fair race! LoL

Bet's on P4 hitting first, as it has a slight weight advantage....therfore it wont spin out of control like the tbird will if you drop it from mid-air..heh heh

News flash on the world tallest building its not the C.N Tower anymore. There a dual building in Japan. That taller. Not sure what the name is.

Pretty sure the tallest buildings are in Kualla Lumpur...how ever you spell it...

Did those get beat? They keep cheating by adding things to the top that aren't floors, but merely scaffolding of some type....

yeah - I think you mean Petronas Towers in Kuala Lumpur. Canada comes in 26th place with First Canadian Plaza, which is over 500ft shorter...

No the T-Bird would be snatched out of free fall and saved by birds while the Pentium 4 would get pooped on. Birds do stick up for one another.

it looks like there still building it but it will be the Shanghai World Financial Center, China When done 1,509 feet
July 20, 2001 6:26:01 AM

Yes, but how many feet are usable? The Kuala Lumpur towers consist of many feet of unusable height. At first they weren't recognized as the tallest buildings since it was thought that they were cheating. Anyone could put antennas on a building and say it's a part of the building yada yada...

Granted, getting something that high is pretty damn impressive...

Galileo on the Leaning Tower of Pisa, and Shepard on the Moon both proved that heavier objects do NOT fall faster.

actual if you where on the top floor of the saer build you would be looking down at the top of the Petronas Towers


the Petronas Towers only get the hieghts record becuase of the spiars on the top of them

Well...actually....Objects DO (basically) accelerate at the same speed...something like 9.8m/sec every second.
However, terminal velocity is determined by mass and countered by aerodynamic resistance. (And distance between the gravitaing bodies if you want to be really anal =8-)

For insctance the terminal velocity of a free falling human being should be about...125mph. Whereas, say a free falling F14 tomcat could reach probably about 185mph...depending on aerodynamic resistance (like wings) of course.

please forgive my ignorance, but does "free standing" mean??

Are the other buildings held up by balloons or something :)

July 20, 2001 6:21:48 PM

Of course, which is why the feather and the hammer fell at the same rate on the moon. No air resistance.

Do you really think weight would produce air resistance, though? That's the point I'm rebutting, that heavier objects fall faster if the same general size (like two CPUs). You'd have to drop them from rather high up to have the small difference in size affect which one hit first.

July 21, 2001 5:01:06 PM

Correct, and this is why i said the P4 would hit first, think abotu it, Air Resistence on a crumpled piece of paper.....no i have a better one.....You take a piece of cardboard, cut it to the same dimensions as a CPU....drop it from the air, what happens?? it floats around a bit while fallign right?
now, add a fair sized rock in the middle of it (tapped on just for kix) and what happens?? it falls almost instantly, right? Think of that as the P4...
Now on a second piece of cardboard equal in size...tape a rock onto it a thrid or generously half the size of the first....tape that one on too...drop it......what happens ?? it floats around longer in the air than the first one did.......than it gradualyl falls....Understand ??

BTW heres just straight from the CN Tower's web-site...

"Defining the Toronto skyline, the CN Tower is Canada's most recognizable and celebrated icon. At a height of 553.33m (1,815 ft., 5 inches), it is the World's Tallest Building and Free Standing Structure, an important telecommunications hub, and the centre of tourism in Toronto. "

Go visit the Web Site if you wish.....very kewl stuff...

July 21, 2001 5:11:40 PM

I don't know if you even read the name of the Tower I said....It's CN Tower........Not the First Canadian Plaza Tower Toronto, theres a BIG difference.....
I Think you need a different resource to look in sir...go to everyoen of these Buildings websites and double check..INCLUDING the C.N.Tower....
You'll notice the CN Tower is about 350Ft HIGHER than anythign else there....

Oh, and by FreeStanding means it doesnt have all kinds of messed up Support Cables running off of it to help stabilze it.....NOR is it connected to soem other smaller buildings to act as a support base...hence FREE-STANDING....it's on its own......

Trivia for you my friend....

What is measured in case of CN Tower it's one solid structural piece of concrete and steel from ground level to top. (No antennas, boxes, mobos on the roof taken into height account)

Hmmm. Not one intelligent response. Not surprising since the person who started this thread is obviously not very intelligent.

July 22, 2001 2:16:22 AM

The difference is that I guess the CN tower is a tower not a building - by whatever definition everyone is using. Now you stated it was a structure - which ties in and so it looks like you are right - I apologise for my semantics.

I did read the name, but I assumed (again incorrectly) that you had mis-named since I was looking for the tallest Canadian building on the list - having already failed to recognise the disctinction between builting and structure!

Sorry mate,

Hey, you, mutant, intelligent Penguin, whoever, listen.
Why not? As for me, I understand that everybody sees what tbirdinside started as kinda fun, relaxation not taken seriously even when criticizing.
But when somebody starts something about others intelligence,...
it always looks like that person is very concerned about own real weaknesses or kinda brain illnesses and trying to switch own problems on others, who never even think about that and never discuss.
Come-on, it's a computer forum and technical site! We are not familiar with the topic you're starting! No, we don't have any problem related to your concerns, dude!

Even if you rename yourself into "triple intelligent", people will see from the distance who you really are.
