    I'm like impenetrable(sp?) steel around Ft. Knox, untouchable.

    Hi, OCA. My name is Abbey, and speaking as a relative newbie, you are one mysterious guy. I may even be a little afraid of you... Should I be? :)

    I'm like a harmless puppy dog.....until you pull my tail or get into my food dish.

    No reason for you to be afraid of me, you've kept your hands off my tail so far and have left the puppy chow alone. :)

    Were there impenetrable steel around Ft. Knox, one could easily touch it.

    Besides, what's impenetrable really? Even something as seemingly solid as steel is in reality mostly empty space.

    Were the atoms of steel the size of basketballs, the distance between the nearest iron atoms would be football stadiums away.

    Neutrinos, I am sure, do not consider steel all that impenetrable at all.

    That's what I'm here for.

    Storm's not over yet though.

    One property steel does have however is mass.

    In other words, steel is securely held down by the gravitational force of the Earth.


    Alright I'm done, unless of course I think of any other semantic technicalities.

    Have a wonderful weekend.
