    They can both perform push-ups, that test alone is inconclusive.

    Hope this helps.
    Ahh I see. We assumed the people ONLY did push-ups for strength building, but I see you point. Thanks.

    Thanks to everyone, I realize now there are too many variables we did not consider.

    Math aside, isn't Gelid Light correct? We are talking about measurement with a single test. In this case, imagine you had each person do push-ups with the other on his back. Who would lift more? Or if you like, put 45lb plates on their backs.
    Normally, I'd say I was grappling, but I was taking down and mounting people, and JFS has kindly informed us that takedowns and being mounted are neither grappling nor anti grappling, so I'm not sure what the **** I was doing. Maybe schroedinger's sparring, where it's neither grappling nor anti-grappling until somoene observes it and collapses the waveform, and then I RNC a cat to death.----fatherdog

    Aside from abysmal arithmetic, Gelid Light's reasoning and logic are certainly correct. If you assume that the 100lb individual can only do a maximum of 20 pushups and the 200lb individual can only do a maximum of 20 pushups, the answer is obviously that the 200lb guy has exactly twice as much ABSOLUTE strength and the same exact amount of RELATIVE strength (to body weight).
    Deluxe247 tells it like it is:

    you ninja fags just got owned in a bad way. this thread should go to the classics and mega thread forum due to the sheer size of taebo_master and gajusceaser's penis. (with which they just smacked across these ninja's faces)

    I was curious to see if someone would catch the gaffe. I anticipated that if I buried it in words, without benefit of zeroes, no one would. Very good, Xango. But you should have said "observe" instead of "watch". It lends the appropriate air of legerdemain and miracle.

    Thank you Gajus, does this indicate an instance of "ownership"?

    I'm sorry. What I meant to say was:

    god damn, this is one dumb thread.

    if a fat guy and a skinny guy each do 20 push ups, the fat guy is stronger. if the fat guy does 30 pushups and blacks out, the skinny guy does 60 and then runs two miles then the skinny guy is stronger.

    if some 250 lb yoked up monster can bench 400 lbs he is probably the strongest of all. but i have seen some skinny, little looking guys throw up some huge weight and make me get all teary-eyed with jealousy.

    Yeah, your right, asking questions that you don't know the answer too is dumb...

    Everyone should run around in ignorance.
