So when your masterbating... atoms are really jerking you off?

Look at it like bread. What happens when you cut through bread with a knife?

You're not actually 'cutting' at an atomic level, You're simply seperating the atoms far enough so that they no longer have a tight bond. With heat, this bond can be reapplied.

If you think about it another way, what happens when 2 cars hit each other. The person in the car never actually hit anything - the car just came to a sudden stop. No force acted directly on the person itself, but rather the car. The electron field is like the car, and the atoms like the driver. The car itself moved, therefor the atoms as a hole are moved. In this case, the Electron field of the Knife parts the Electron field of your once beating heart to leave a mortal wound for you to suffer through.

Your Honor, it is not rape because I technically was NOT touching her.

how do you leave finger prints if you don't actually touch it?

Because the atoms of oil on your fingers are just sitting on top of your skin. Your skin secretes oil constantly so you have an excess. When you touch something the excess oil, that isn't in the grooves of your finger print, gets left behind. It works because the ridges in your fingerprint are really deep and the layer of oil that floats on your skin goes up and down with the ridges in your finger, not across the top of the ridges.

The ink is attracted to your fingers, and then sticks to the paper when you touch it. No contact involved.
User avatar #163 to #157 - datrandomazn (11/22/2012) [-]
I'm not a genius in all this, but your finger print is like just raised parts of your fingers and when you put the ink on your finger it lives the print, because some parts of it are raised and same with just finger prints on a window it's just the oil on your skin that's on the raised parts. I didn't explain it well sorry, but I hope you kind of understood it.

I'm guessing the atoms that actually touch the object create the exact shape as your fingerprints

... And i still got in trouble for "touching" little girls....
User avatar #149 - spikethepony (11/22/2012) [-]
Well, if you want to be technical about it, this also means that you are not one object. In fact, nothing technically counts as a singular object, save the singularity of a black hole, but who's counting those?

so i just raped a girl but I was actually hovering?

this will be useful in court.

My A-Level Physics teacher used this to explain why he could punch a guy in our class for not doing work and get away with it as he never actually touched him

Could a certain amount of gravity overcome this repulsion?
User avatar #142 to #141 - Churchandtex ONLINE (11/22/2012) [-]
That's what happens in black holes, I think.

Not quite true, if you look at quantum mechanics. An electron is not a ball, sphere or something like that, but is behave as an energy field, and that field can indeed "touch" other energy fields, so yeah.

User avatar #147 to #135 - Kajekillz (11/22/2012) [-]
yea but energy fields of the same polarity will repel each other preventing your electron fields from interacting with others, they can "touch" fields of the opposite polarity however
#150 to #147 - sevenman (11/22/2012) [-]
nope, watch the video i linked to. BTW, they have to "touch" energy fields to repel. Also, define touch
User avatar #151 to #150 - Kajekillz (11/22/2012) [-]
yea put an energy field is pratically never ending as it just has a weaker effect on objects futher away
#153 to #151 - sevenman (11/22/2012) [-]
thats not how quantum mechanics work... Did you even watch the video? It from minute physics (awesome channel)
User avatar #160 to #153 - Kajekillz (11/22/2012) [-]
no i didn't watch the video, i just feel like having an internet argument

But you can touch something if you can defeat that force the atoms of your body create when you're not applying force on anything ...am I wrong?

No your honour.
I didn't shoot the gun.
The resistance created by my presence activated the gun.
Physics is the real murderer here.
User avatar #129 - schlickchick (11/22/2012) [-]
But that is what we believe to be as the sensation of touch. So technically, we still are touching things. Touching just isn't as we previously perceived it to be. It doesn't matter what you call it. Like my science teacher was telling me one time, that cold doesn't exist, it is just the absence of heat. But I told him that cold does exist, because that is the name we give for the absence of heat. We might not have understood it fully, but that is what we perceived cold to be.

That is true, the vast majority of an atom is empty space, imagine a basketball in your house is a proton, then the electron would be 5 miles away
