Weight is a measurement of mass, not volume. 100lbs of muscle weighs exactly the same amount as 100lbs of fat. Of course lbs is a measurement of weight.

Surprised that so many people here would fail a most basic grade 6 science test.

I wonder what's going to happen when he retires.

That's pretty scary.

Wedding picture looks suspect. His face looks like a balloon. There were some unflattering court pics earlier in the summer. Have to wait and see what he looks like on the ice and more importantly how he plays.

Edit - I see the original was shopped. I was thinking, holy ****.... what happened to Buff?

Its like that old joke, what weighs more, a pound of bricks or a pound of feathers

That shopped picture is freaking hilarious couldn't stop laughing. Now my new background.

On another note Seabrook's haircut looks a bit overstyled no?

yeah so am I... weight is a measurement of force, not mass. lbs is a measurement of mass not weight, weight is measured in newtons.

Its amazing how naive some people are. The irony in your post is hilarious.

You said weight is a measure of volume, which it is not, it is a measure of force, a result of gravity and mass. Since on Earth, gravity is relatively constant, we can use weight and mass "interchangeably".

100 pounds of muscle weighs the exact same as 100 lbs of fat when you fix the force of gravity.

For you you say that weight is a measure of volume would indeed lead you to fail a sixth grade science test.

Where in the post that you just quoted, did I say that weight was a measure of volume? My exact words were "weight is a measure of force" also you can use whatever you want "interchangeably" but any way you try and twist it I am still right.

theoretically you cant say that 100 pounds of muscle weighs the same as 100 lbs of fat, so don't try and twist in different scenarios for that either.

If you were referring to my first post, then that's the one you should have quoted, I also apologize because I had had my fair share of beer before I posted that evening.

Please tell me this pissing match is over and that we can now resume our efforts to make fun of Buffy.

You are right, of course, but outside of a physics classroom 'weight' is used to mean 'mass' and it's not wrong in the context of a measurement in which the other variable doesnt actually vary. "Weight" outside of a physics classroom is always given in terms of mass and having measured mass, you have also inherently measured the weight if you are only concerned with the force exherted at or near the earth's surface.

Grade six science sure doesnt deal with force diagrams and calculations where I'm from, though you would be expected to know the difference between density and weight (which is what so many people were getting wrong here).

Of course you can say that. As long as the force of gravity acting opon them is the same, 100lbs of anything has exactly the same weight as 100lbs of anything.

The difference between muscle and fat is obviously density, one doesnt 'weigh' more than the other if their weight is the same. Then saying "100lbs of this weighs more than 100lbs of that" is the same as saying "100 is more than 100." As in, it's just nonsensical. Because we're obviously talking about weight where g is the same for both measurements, as it always is when we say weight as mass colloquially.

Buffy the Cheeseburger Slayer? That has photoshop potential.

Wow, beaten to it

BS, Buf puts pts on the board due to his hammer from the blueline -- but he is hardly that impressive in other areas of the game. It also sends a horrible message...

You are kidding yourself if you don't think Buf would be a much better player if he took care of himself better. Spent 3 month's per sumer to get into better shape instead of completely loosing it and being forced to work his but of just to recover to the form he had in Aprile.
