Arguing couple does no damage with Cheetos


Well, duh. According to my rough, back-of-the-envelope calculations, you could hit somebody with a Cheeto traveling just shy of the speed of light and still not do any damage.

In order to assemble enough Cheeto mass to do any damage, you'd have to pack about a cubic meter of Cheetos into a compactor, smush it down to, say, a cubic centimeter, and only then - with a really powerful slingshot - would you potentially generate enough kinetic energy to where somebody would actually say "ouch" if they were hit with it.

Any physicists out there want to argue about it?
