Quote (Reciprocating Bill @ Mar. 14 2010,12:51)

There are many plaster cast copies of Michelangelo's David in existence. They weigh less than the six-ton marble original; solid marble weighs 160 lbs per cubic foot, while plaster weighs 53 lbs per cubic foot.  If I understand you correctly, you are saying that although they are of identical physical dimensions and displace identical volumes of identical shape, plaster-cast David and the original David are NOT the same size. Any one who says otherwise is both an idiot and an asshole.

So, Joe, if a precise plaster cast copy of David is NOT, by your definition, the same size as the original David, how much taller would such a plaster cast David have to be than the actual David to be the same size as the actual David?

(Somehow, this question makes sense to you.)

Show your work.

I point out the first bold passage to predict Joe's answer:

"You couldn't understand what a 13 year old understands, asshole".

I point out the second bold passage as evidence for POtW!!!
