tough call. Both are insanely organized killing machines. If the ants know their sole enemy are the marines they have a pretty good shot, since a googol is just a massively large number. Otherwise the marines would wipe them out.
Back in '72 I was in South America and I saw a colony of ants strip a deer carcass in under 5 minutes. A googol is a fucking insanely huge number. Eventually those marines are going to run out of fuel for their flame throwers. Then the ants will have them
1 googol is far more than the predicted number of atoms in the observable universe. We cannot conclude until we have more information on the settings of the match, especially, how are the two army organized at the beginning.
>>555793005 fuck you america is the best and will kick the shit out of those ants just like we did with the arabs and germans in ww2 when we saved the world USA USA USA USA USA USA USA USA USA USA USA USA USA USA USA USA USA USA USA USA USA USA USA USA USA USA USA USA USA USA USA USA USA USA USA USA USA USA USA USA USA USA USA USA USA USA USA USA USA USA USA USA USA USA USA USA USA USA USA USA USA USA USA USA USA USA USA USA USA USA USA USA USA USA USA USA USA USA USA USA USA USA USA USA USA USA USA USA USA USA USA USA USA USA USA USA USA USA USA USA USA USA USA USA USA USA USA USA USA USA
I need more details Assuming the marines have huge, huge, huge tanks of fuel and good flamethrowers, and enough food/ water to last like 10 years, then yes if they all got into a circle/line and let the ants come they could probably stop them. But keeping that kind of intense concentration up for that long (think about the consequences if only like 6 ants- assuming big ass fire ones- got through and went for a guy? The line would break, despite another filling his place that would most likely be it) is gonna be very difficult and unless the marine accept the importance of killing every last ant then i'm afraid they would probably fail
For all you retards even considering the marines. A googol is a number so large , not even all atoms in the know are that much. So More fucking ants then atoms in the universe. Imagine our world now , but instead every oxygen atom your breath is ants , your desk = ant , earth = ant , sky = ant , Fuck even you would be made out of ant.
A googol ants is least 1 000 000 000 000 000 000 (1 septillion) universes mass in ants. If gathered into one place the ants would instantly collapse into a super massive black hole. The incredible gravity of the ant-black-hole would instantly crush the soldiers to death if they were within several light years. How many light years? I haven't cared to work out. But how the fuck can any number of marines defeat a black hole?
at these masses, wouldn't the ants end up lighting up like a forest would? you fire them up at some point and the fire would simply spread from there? if they were piling up at least. if they just were there like one layer of single ants, the soldiers would run out of fuel and the fire wouldnt spread enough. but if they were pilling on one another, they should catch fire. the soldiers would maybe end up dieing though too, either in the fire or as a result of smoke poisoning
>>555794960 I am assuming there will be a planet at least 100,000,000,000x larger than earth housing nothing but ants, flamethrowers, marines, and supplies for living. You just need more flamethrowers, man. Always need more flamethrowers.
>>555795142 absolute faggot. Imagine what the fucking gravity would be on a planet like that, you'd be crushed under your own weight. 100,000,000 is fucking nothing compared to a googol anyway! If you increased the earths volume by 100,000,000 it still wouldn't fill the solar system
>>555794960 >>555794882 So this basically. But why are you fools still choosing ants? Do you some how think ants could survive the extreme heat & pressure that would be created by a goddamn Googol of them? No. So essentially this would result in a tie at best. Or the Marines would win bc they are far enough away from the blasphemy that is an ant-event-horizon
Let's be optimistic and say that each marines can kill 10 meters cube (fucking huge) of ants every second with their flamethrower. Let say each individual ants is takes up 1 millimeter cube of space (pretty optimistic too). That mean that 1000000 marines will take down 10^18 ants every second. Their are 10^100 ants. Thus it will take 10^82 seconds for the marines to get rid of all those ants. That's approximately 3.17*10^74 years.
You know that would be 10^94 ants per soldier, which would be a solid ant block 6 km tall and wide and 12 kilometer long (if these ants are exactly 1mm *1mm *2mm big) also per soldier. So even with flamethrower I highly doubt they would have enough gas or endurance to kill all the ants even if the ants would simply stand still.
>>555793005 So, mathematicall when one soldier could kill 100 ants per second (100ApS) and even at 1.000.000 Marines it would take, if my calculations are correct 3.1x10^75 Billion years. That's pretty hard to imagine since the world als a planet (with lava and storms all about it) "only" exists since 4.6 Billion years.
Additional for that there is not even enough stuff to power flamethrowers for thst long.
Case closed. A Googol is a fucking huge number no one can imagine.

>Implying the United States Marines aren't trained in handling every kind of situation >Implying they won't attack at night >Implying they couldn't sneak up on a black hole >Implying they couldn't handle a few thousand Earth's worth of pressure >Implying they don't already have gas masks that can handle that type of pressure >Implying that many ants couldn't be killed with a magnifying glass
Assuming that: 1) Neither party can reproduce 2) This scenario takes place on an infinite plane with gravity equal to earth as well as resources (earth's atmosphere) to sustain both groups indefinitely.
I believe that the marines would outlast the ants (average lifespan of an ant is 90 days). The would be some casualties due to being eaten alive by ants, but the remaining marines could create ant-proof suits from the uniforms of fallen soldiers. At that point the marines would be reduced to 40-50% of their original numbers. It would no be impossible for the marines to live off of eating nothing but ants for three months, including siphoning water from the ants' bodies to drink. We're dealing with the equivalent of a universe of ants spread across a plane, so I don't think food resources for the marines would be scarce. It would still be the case that many would die of prolonged dehydration. The ants would also be eating each other, but even if the population were reduced to a tiny fraction of a percent of what it was, this would not even be observable by the marines. Basically, 90 days of eating ants and drinking squished ants will lead to victory for the marines but with heavy losses.
>>555804931 If the battle took place in 3D space and ignored the obvious lack of oxygen, victory for the marines would be impossible. If the ants and marines were spread out evenly across this ant filled universe, in the first few microseconds gravity would begin pulling the ants together at at several points. Depending on the space between ants it would take time but eventually the mass of trillions upon trillions of ants would coalesce into massive stars, whose gravity would pull in more ants in a long cycle creating star systems and galaxies. Eventually all mass in that universe (including the marines) would be pulled into the gravitational center (the time depending on how much of a rotation the system picked up from random motion) creating a singularity.
If the ants are flowing through and the flamethrowers are enough to stop them from being literally crushed under the weight of the ants, then the marines, because the ants would die of natural causes before the marines would.
However, this is assuming that the ants are flowing and not just all around the marines all at once, and that the ants aren't reproducing. If they are reproducing, the ants, for sure.
a googol is 1 followed by 100 zeros a googolplex is 1 followed a googol of zeros a googolplexian is a 1 followed by a googolplex of zeros why isn't a 9 followed by a googolplex of 9's that would be bigger
>>555806825 A gogol is a thousand of a million of a million of a million of a million of a million of a million of a million of a million of a million of a million of a million of a million of a million of a million of a million of a million.
>>555806863 what if the ants aren't close together forming a blackhole but scattered across the universe? Also are the ants and marines able to reproduce or we are talking about hypothetical sterile ants and marines?
>>555799359 No, the math should be: 0.001m*0.001m*0.002m=2*10^-9m^3 per ant, multiplied by 10^94 ants per soldier, which would come down to 2*10^85 cubic metres per soldier. The size of the observable universe is 3.5*10^80m, so each soldier would have kill a block of ants roughly 57000 bigger than the universe.
I just did the math; both would lose. The volume of ants would be 10^62 times bigger than the sun. That's right, that many ants would create a super massive black hole that would eat everything in the universe.
Also this question is impossible because
"The number of atoms in the entire observable universe is estimated to be within the range of 10^78 to 10^82"
>>555793005 1 Googol of ants. Lets say that the average size of an ant is 0,04 mm^3. 1 googol is 1×10^100. That means that the size of 1 googol ants equals 4,0×10^98 mm^3. That is equal to 4,0×10^80 km^3 of fucking ants. To give you another reason why this ridiculous: The volume of a sphere is calculated by 4/3 × pi^3. This means that the radius of the ant sphere is 1,7×10^26 km, that's over 18 trillion lightyears. I ignore the fact that the weight of the ants will collapse on to itself, forming an ant singularity.
OP, have you even though what quantities you're working with?
>>555810169 Well if the ants continued to move into space it would be possible, I mean under the assumption that the universe is infinite. Of course every ant in space would die, but the ants on earth would just suffocate the marines. Oh course I know virtually nothing about the science or math of space so
>>555794216 Look who it is again, ID Heaven. I'm fed up with your shit faggot. The other day when you called me a newfag, yeah, haven't forgotten about that yet. Fuck you I've been on here for months and probably get on here more than you anyways. Don't you know that you make yourself look like a newfag when you call others newfag? Just because you learned how to hack your name and change it to Heaven does not give you the right to disrespect anyone at any time.
