Use all your vidya knowledge to save the doggy /v/ so you'll finally have a friend.
Wooooooooooooooow how was I supposed to know the lava would kill me?
I walk up to the edge and wait for the QTE prompt to show up, whereupon I proceed to perform a double backflip jump into the hole and grab the dog. I then walk back to the entrance of the hole where I press space to grapple the cliff and swing back onto it.
The best solution
Use all your vidya knowledge to have the doggy save you so you'll finally have a friend.
Party is full, so it gets transported to the PC system.
If you zoom in, you can see he used a Diamond Cutter.Idiot.
IRL diamonds are brittle as fuck which is why most drills and dentists use diamond encrusted tips. Hell I got a 3lb wedding ring made of tungsten. It sucks and if it ever slipped off my finger it would shatter into a billion pieces.
>implying i take fire damage
>implying i even need to walk on the lava
You can break a diamond with a common hammer. They are very hard and very brittle.
Fuck, you can probably put a big diamond in your sock and give it a few whacks on the pavement and break it.
1. The lava does not seem to be moving, and there is no visible source of new lava. So the lava would eventually settle. The heat would have partly escaped into the atmosphere and partly spread through the diamond initially and into the surrounding land.
2. In the cooling event of the lava, the diamond heats up. The chamber surfaces would have heated to a cooking degree, searing the animal inside it like a pancake on a charred hot pan. The radiation from the lava will also pass through the supposedly clear solid diamond and cook the animal like a grill. The air tube would then act like a chimney with visible cooking smoke slowly leaking out.
3. The person standing on the platform above the lava will be fine just like anyone visiting a volcano. This is a good time to take pictures.
4. The only visible diamond bits are the air tube poking out of the lava. It would have been blackened from the smoke and will be hard to spot on a lake of cooling lava. So the diamond underground, and the now dead and over-cooked dog will remain unknown until somebody, someday, decides to dig into the cooled, solid lava formation for whatever reason. They will strike diamond, literally.
5. If I am that person, and if I have exclusive knowledge of diamond presence of the site, there are many ways to get rich from that. And with the money, I can buy all the dogs I want.
6. Not from /v/, but thanks for the interesting thread.
well, since a river of lava is a river of the country calles Lava, I can use the tube in the air tube as an air filled inner tube, then float over to the doggy, who I will then ask to dodge out of the cavern and into my inner tube. I then use the y from you and turn it upsidedown to make it an h, and combine it with the e of friend to get He, which is helium. I replace the air in my inner tube with helium, and float back to the ledge, with my new doggy frind.

You can switch with another body when you both have the same shape
It's brittle as metals go, but it's not glass-brittle.
My best solid-rivet backstop is made of tungsten. I dropped it maybe 200 times in 15 years and it never chipped.
I doubt anyone would make tungsten rings out of poly tungsten.
Christ I haven't seen this in a while
>Small amounts available
>Not only because it's artificially scarce and controlled by the people who mine it
>Implying diamond is even valuable intrinsically as gold is when it can be manufactured
A lot of things are, infact. Same with diamond.
The reason gold and diamond costs are so high is largely because of inflation because the gubbments know people will pay tons of money for them.
Diamonds in particular are not worth nearly as much as they're marketed for, because they're almost wholly owned by a single company, who can control the price as they wish.
A more reasonable price for them would be a 80% reduction in their current costs.
Yes, and it's pretty expensive, but that isn't the single factor. You have to also consider the demand and uses, while Pd does have uses, gold has more demand, both from regular people, as well as manufacturing perspectives. And in general you make more general things out of gold. Where as Pd usually ends up in special chemicals for specialized applications, and only has trace amounts in other areas.
Then again that's what I'm recalling off the top of my head, and I am no expert by any stretch of the imagination. So feel free to correct me if I am wrong, I would welcome it.
do we know if there are palladium bearing asteroids? I've heard of platinum roids with more platinum than has ever been mined, but i wonder what other rarer elements are floating around out there
>Ball bounces around the edges and deals like 100 damage
You're underestimating palladium.
It's used in electronics, fuel cells, oil refining, polyester, water treatment, and some promising applications in cancer treatment.
It's a certainty that, at least for stable elements like Palladium, that there's giant chunks of them floating around somewhere.
I'm sure that within 20 years, asteroid mining will be pretty common, and we'll find all this shit.
But in both of these cases manufactured or man made diamonds reign supreme. As far as I am aware most engineering diamonds are the very tiny almost non gemstone kind, which have been manufactured for ages now.
Most scientific uses for diamond require very few impurities to function best, which is why lab grown diamond is the king there too. (well admittedly there are a few areas that use imperfections in the crystal lattice, but those are few, and even then it's better to create and control those imperfections than buy mined diamonds and hope for the best. )
Hmm, yes I suppose I did forget more than a few, my apologies. Though I would ask, aren't more than a few of those catalytic and don't require large amounts of the material to be put into products large runs of manufactured products?
>I'm sure that within 20 years, asteroid mining will be pretty common, and we'll find all this shit.
Unlikely. There are still hungry niggers and feeding them and encouraging them to breed takes precedence over scientific research
>Technology is advancing at an exponential pace
Only some areas where such measures can be made. Sure every breakthrough will contribute to another in these many interwoven fields of study in this globalized world, but not everything is advancing at a steady pace, or at any pace at all. Space travel has hardly changed at all, the only recent change has been in design philosophy, not in tech. Even if a tech change is made, it will just be switching to something that was proposed twenty years ago. Tech comes in spurts of advancement, and not everything will advance at the same pace, or at all until a breakthrough in another area is made first to precipitate it.
Governments are the only ones capable of engaging in asteroid mining and they are far more interested in helping the third world to breed.
>b-b-but m-m-m-muh private sector
No corporation would survive investing in asteroid mining. It would be decades before they'd break even, if they ever did. The cost of moving things in space increases exponentially as their mass increases. You could move asteroids closer to earth theoretically, but it is extremely risky and would be very expensive.
Long story short. Our chance at space came and went. The world doesn't care about anything other than the present.
Fun fact: Diamonds and Gold are very common.
Not as common as coal or iron, but common.
They're only expensive because the people who mine them only release a few, and for loadsamoney
Supply and demand!
Picture of cute girl
one million hours in mspaint
>Indeed it is true, I cannot read
>The world doesn't care about anything other than the present.
I mean that most humans do not care about future problems and care only about there here and now. Space colonisation and exploitation secures humanity's future, but it is very expensive and serious investment would reduce the quality of life for many people.
Space travel technology 20 years ago is identical to space technology travel now. In turn, space travel technology is identical to space travel technology 40 years ago. It still revolves around highly inefficient combustion to send out a flame for propulsion. Without nuclear fusion, we've peaked. Considering how anti-nuclear most of the world is, you probably shouldn't keep your hopes up about great strides in technology.
I'm serious, functioning, non-autistic adults realize that just because something is popular doesn't mean it is bad.
Minecraft is a fun experience that allows you to be creative, is a massive time-sink, and isn't filled with contrived anime bullshit. Unless you want it to be, because the modding scene is great [pic related].
Yeah, because the multitude of recent advances in power and propulsion will do nothing for space travel.
And let's just ignore that grasshopper ship that can greatly reduce the amount of energy needed to get it out of the atmosphere.
Also, who knows what they're gonna do after they get that machine onto Rosetta.
All this retards trying so hard, and still doing it wrong...
>throw rock into lava
>lava level goes up enough to splash lava into cavern
Uh, the quantity in that picture wouldn't decrease it enough to leave you without millions at the very least.
Besides, you could just put a little bit out there at a time, it ain't that hard you fucking faggot.
>without fusion we've peaked
I disagree, you could always use the old fission drives if you really thought that we needed to get around the solar system quickly. But let's be honest, if we do anything it will likely be automatized, no need to do things quick once you got a way to build drones that do the work for you. Takes much less material that way anyway, no need for safety shit compared to anything that can hold a human.
And let's be honest, is there really much need, or even drive to try to physically go to many of the other planets? Hell even Mars, our best bet, is damn near uninhabitable. Even if we mined asteroids what will we do with them, build more mining rigs, a space station or two for a show of scientific and engineering prowess? We wouldn't want to chuck that shit back down here unless we were retarded of course, considering the effort it would take to get it off earth again should we ever need it in space. (though since people generally lack forethought and planning I don't doubt that would happen)
I can agree with you on one thing, nothing significant is probably going to happen in the near future, or in our lifetimes.
>jesus christ kid, don't get your "facts" from the internet
>if you could put together all the gold ever mined, it would fit a volume smaller than your room
that's the joke right?
>Yeah, because the multitude of recent advances in power and propulsion will do nothing for space travel.
Like what? All human-bearing spacecraft still rely on chemical combustion as their means of propulsion.
>And let's just ignore that grasshopper ship that can greatly reduce the amount of energy needed to get it out of the atmosphere.
You mean the powered by combustion technology. Oh boy, the future is looking bright.
>Also, who knows what they're gonna do after they get that machine onto Rosetta.
Nothing most likely. Get a few photos. Take some samples. Then get some news that the US Government is slashing NASA funding because negroes in Detroit are lagging behind academically.
As a sidenote, sending a probe to a comet cost about a billion euros. Just a probe. No heavy mining equipment. As far as I am aware, no intention of it being a return mission. A billion euro just to get some info on the rock. Imagine what it would cost to send a large spacecraft, complete with heavy mining equipment and the ability to come back to Earth with its payload? Especially if humans had to go along as well. I get the feeling there would be a negative return on that investment. Even if they found a tonne of Diamonds.
Diamond has high thermal conduction and basically acts like a giant heatsink, all the diamond distributes the heat very quickly over the large mass of the diamond and saves the dog from cooking.
Gold and diamonds are worth a lot because they are durable. Gold is a shiny metal that doesn't rust, diamond is equally hard to alter and shiny so people thought it was magic. Then, the rich primitive people got a lot of them, everybody agreed they were very precious, and that consensus (a global consensus about the worth of something is one of the major characteristics of money) still lives today.
The origins of the monetary system are simple, and are also entirely understood by thieving magpies and other similar birds
Captain, I can't get a lock on his pattern, the lava and diamond are interfering with the sensor lock
We're losing him captain!!
He's gone, i'm sorry captain, nothing we could do.
The first step in saving the doggy is to give /v/ a reason to want to save the doggy.
Don't know what board you're from, but diamond is a fucking great insulator.
Not exactly sure if it can insulate from lava, though, but I assume more of the heat will be given off to the atmosphere than to the diamond.
Nigga it can go either way. Diamond is the hardest metal and dragonforce is the hardest metal both originated here. Who gives a shit which one you decide to reference? It's overplayed anyways.
Gotta stop caring so much about nonsensical shit.
You're a faggot
step 1: build a bridge over to the hole
step 2: build a ladder down
step 3: slowly, slowly, pour water into the hole to fill up the cave. the dog will swim towards the top of the water obviously, so it will slowly rise to the top, and swim towards the opening
step 4: lift dog out and go home to shitpost
there, you dont even need vidya logic for it
This way you'd create a vacuum in the chamber that could suck lava in, which would then heat up the air in the chamber, resulting in some of the lava violently shooting out of the tube, killing you and the dog.
