1. i dont think so - even if that was right, kratos' feat is still greater, considering he toppled something thats larger than the pillar, and heavier than the pillar, even when said something was literally putting its foot down on him..
2. why should i? - you'll just find a convenient way to somehow downplay the feat
it seems my nerdish ways are needed elsewhere (just got the ultimate sith edition of star wars TFU)
my ridiculous need to beat some random guy at an online debate about videogame characters has been abated.
farewell - strange person
Regarding the first part, don't these kinds of threads always devolve into that?
Maybe, but, I've recently come to believe that Shao Khan is just about as gay as Dark Khan himself, if not gayer! You see, his gayness makes Darkseid gay, and thus makes Dark Khan gay as well (aside from the latter being a gay fusion with even gayer powers), and I have irrefutable evidence to back up my claims. Behold!
apparently i am
btw - totally disapointed in the pc version of the star wars tfu special edition
laggy as ****, the audio skips in cutscenes and the patch that came out a week later didnt do shit, except make my game file a full 30 f*cking gb
but on the plus side, beating the crap out of [SPOILER - highlight to read]: luke is strangely satisfying
the statue stands 39.6 metres (130 ft) tall, including its 9.5 metre (31 ft) pedestal, and 30 metres (98 ft) wide.
as for the concrete - just about everyplace on and offline say the same thing - the reinforced concrete is 150 pound per cu. foot
thats all i got for ya sp

Well, if these numbers are correct, either the shape of the statue results in a relatively low number for total volume, or it's hollow, imho.
That and how did they weigh the statue?
The pillar can come out as large 2000+ cubic feet in volume, and white granite weighs 165 lbs per cubic foot. But I've been making a point of shrinking the numbers as much as I can.
Edit: Here's a snippet of sokem old calcs I did before I shrinking the pillar in OoT, lol.
73 pixels = 6 ft.
Side length = 143 pixels = 11.753 ft /2 = 5.876 ft.
Pillar volume in cubic feet; 20075.4 [Base x height.] [Base = radius [9.5] x 1/2 side length [5.876]x 6] 334.59
Height = 60 ft.
Weight in pounds per cubic foot depends on the composition.
[usually 166.5 for lighter WHITE granite. Total weight in pounds; 3342554.1]
- 1671.27705 tons.
[Black granite, much more likely; 179. Total weight in pounds; 3593496.6]
- 1796.7483 tons.
Side length: 10.16494845360824742260412371134
Base area: 417.9680093527473695398023169306"
From a text file on my comp.
I've been trying to shrink this as much as I can since then, and have taken screenies from the least favourable possible angles/shortened the pillar, ect..
It always comes out over a thousand tons no matter how I math it. If you can find an error in my numbers, you'd do the whole forum a favour by making me stfu :P

I suppose you are right. As Darkseid isn't gay, by merging with a supremely gay person, the fusion is approximately half as gay . But you have to consider the fact that Rage amped his gayness by approximately a factor of 50 .
That would mean that Rage Shao Khan is the gayest thing alive in a manner of speaking.
"To all visitors from Transylvania looking for the head of Voivode Dracula: Yes, we have it. Yes, he's dead. No, you cannot see it. No, he will not return and invade you again. It has been over thirty years, please stop pestering us."
Pretty much. For one, RAGE Shao Khan doesn't have those classic taunts as a special move like 2D Khan did... nor does he even have a fatality.
Granted, Darkseid didn't have a fatality either, but that's because his fusion with Shao Khan left him with the Khan flu, thus he lost the ability to do fatalities on people... It also made his Omega Beam considerably weaker than Superman's Heat Vision in the game, among other negative effects as a result of his gay, accidental merge with Khan.
