Got me a bee gun, yes I do.
I use my gun to shoot bees at you.
My ammo weighs 0.218 grams and is specially coated with a super-thin coating of frictionless polymer to eliminate drag without compromising the splattiness of the bee. My gun is powered by a scalar field generator which can accelerate the bee via a 300 mile circular accelerator to any speed (up to the speed of light–gotta keep it legal you know) I desire. There is negligible recoil when the bee leaves the muzzle.
So far I have fired bees into the ceiling, across town and I think I managed to lodge one squarely between a couple boulders on the moon. That last shot at the moon got me to wondering, because I fired it really fast at like .25 light speed to keep from having to lead a moving target too much, how much damage the bee did when it hit. I was pretty sure I saw a good sized puff of moon dust. But I didn’t worry too much about it.
- How much force did my moon bee deliver when it hit?
- How fast would I need to shoot a bee to stop an oncoming 3,500 kg school bus moving at 100 kmph?
- What are some significant practical applications of a bee fired at light speed? (could it damage a bus? Destroy the moon? Alter a planet’s trajectory?
