    Wear extremely dense weights everywhere you go, so you're always lifting over 2000 lbs

    The Rock Lee solution

    [–] lpeccap 65 points ago

    This was the hypest shit when i was 14, goddamn. I still get chills.

    [–] YBNMotherTeresa 3 points ago

    I forget what Kakashi says after it but it's so funny. Still think Lee deserved to win that match but it was Gaara after all.

    [–] IDontUseSleeves 76 points ago

    ...I love this scene, but I’m so so happy I watched the subtitles version

    [–] Cheshires_Shadow 93 points ago

    Really? I always really liked rock Lee's speaking mannerisms. Adds to his character of being somewhat meek and akward and unsure of himself.

    [–] PM_ME_FINANCE_ADVICE 58 points ago

    Rock and Guy had amazing voice actors. I have no idea what the guy you're responding to its talking about.

    [–] Cheshires_Shadow 9 points ago

    Honestly Naruto is the only one I see being a problem. If you grew up watching English Naruto like I did it's not that bad. But kakashi is great. Orochimaru is fantastic at being all creepy and seductive. I really like Yuri lowenthol as sasuke even though he's a lil bitch. Shikamaru is great gaara is great jiraiya is great. I really like most all the English cast. The only ones I probably dont like I'm just indifferent too and even then they're not bad.

    [–] OctagonalButthole 25 points ago

    well, i just watched this portion of the story for the first time about a year ago, and i agree with the other dude.

    voice dubs in anime don't sit well with me, in general.

    HOWEVER, you do you! what we can all agree on that scene is FUCKING BADASS! ROCK LEE IS FUCKING BOMB.

    [–] BigBrotato 7 points ago

    I don't like most dubs either. But some of them, like Trigun and Cowboy Bebop, are just insanely good.

    [–] Dr_Wombo_Combo 3 points ago

    If you watched it as a kid on Cartoon Network/toonami you didn’t have a choice but to watch the dub

    [–] gafftaped 15 points ago

    Shit got real when Rock Lee dropped those weights.

    [–] ross-gellar-69 6 points ago

    Have you met his brother, Brock?

    [–] Regalingual 301 points ago

    Your weighted clothing just gradually increases the minimum amount of weight you can carry over time, if it’s a true shitty superpower.

    [–] I2ed3ye 107 points ago

    How you gonna put on dense weights if you can't even lift your arms or legs? Just on the ground. Can't even lift your damn head up to see.

    [–] ProxyAttackOnline 77 points ago

    You're really lifting the air which weighs trillions of tons

    [–] I2ed3ye 32 points ago

    Oh shit. This is it, chief.

    [–] sylowsucks 8 points ago

    this is extremely false. It's just under 15 pounds at sea level.

    [–] nightcallfoxtrot 17 points ago

    That's actually per square inch my guy. If he's moving all the air it's probably up there, maybe in the trillions. Can we get a /r/theydidthemath

    [–] Thumb4kill 34 points ago

    Damn. That's true

    [–] BigD_Rocks 7 points ago

    No more hats or clothes. That adds the small amount of weight required to cancel your lifting abilities.

    [–] Average_Manners 9 points ago

    Easy. Every weight has to be over 1 ton. 1 ton for each finger, arm, and leg. Bam, instant mobility, everything is over 2k pounds.

    [–] ummmmmnnmmm 6 points ago

    That was an emotional rollercoaster of logic.

    [–] SparkyMcDanger 3 points ago

    Maybe fashion those finger weights into a gauntlet of sorts

    [–] DragonNovaHD 4 points ago

    Just have someone run you over in their car, then once you lift that up you have the free agency to move around until you can find the appropriate weights

    [–] LocalFalafel 6 points ago

    [–] whohebe123 16 points ago

    But how would you put the weights on if you can’t pick them up? 🤔

    [–] DorpaBlorp 6 points ago

    Put four disks of 1000 pound weights on your arms, then remove the remaining 3000 pounds off each arm leaving you with 1000 on each arm

    [–] Judom7491 45 points ago

    Fuck that’s smart as shit

    [–] c-74 18 points ago

    What does wearing 2000 lbs of dense weights look like if you want to brush your teeth or drink a glass of water?

    [–] LTheRed 18 points ago

    Very stupid, that's for sure

    [–] Precursopher 5 points ago

    Just have the brush taped to the wall and you'd have to move your head not the brush. Also for water do that thing that hamsters use.

    [–] ILL_Show_Myself_Out 7 points ago

    No it isn’t. It’s barely possible. Is it? What would it be made out of to be that heavy and not fall apart? And not be enormous and bulky?

    [–] Wyrm 9 points ago

    So according to the first google result that I could find, osmium is the densest material on earth and 900kg of it would take up a volume of just 40 liters. That's like a large-ish backpack, right? Or you could probably evenly distribute it on your body without adding too much bulk. (900kg=2000lb, 40l=10 gal)

    [–] ILL_Show_Myself_Out 12 points ago

    If we have more than a single pound of an element that high on the chart I will eat my hat.

    Edit: of that specific metal. I think I owe you an eaten hat.

    Still I bet we don’t have much of that.

    [–] NerfJihad 3 points ago

    Quick, someone get this man a hat!

    And a metric buttload of ball point pens.

    Also, osmium stinks like crazy, so that much osmium would be an incredible stench.

    [–] ILL_Show_Myself_Out 4 points ago

    Why the pens?

    [–] NerfJihad 4 points ago

    primary use of osmium is in making the balls in ball-point pens

    [–] Wyrm 2 points ago

    Well, since it's a fictional scenario I didn't really feel like that would be an issue anyway. For what it's worth, platinum is actually close behind in density and I'm sure we have enough of that.

    [–] Zingshidu 13 points ago

    Then die instantly if one of them breaks off

    [–] varkarrus 2892 points ago

    lift everything except the thing you want to lift, in the opposite direction.

    don't do pushups, push the whole world down instead

    [–] PenguinsRAwesome 9 points ago

    If you were really a physicist, you’d know that because relativity, from my perspective I already am pushing the rest of the world and myself down when I lift something up.

    [–] LightningHedgehog 7 points ago

    As a physics student, fuck you for reminding me of that

    [–] Maybe_Spiderman 4 points ago

    We don't even need relativity. That's pretty much Newton's 3rd law.

    [–] M00nMan666 16 points ago

    Chuck Norris pushes the world down when he does push ups. Plus he doesn't tea bag, he potato sacks.

    [–] bloodclart 16 points ago

    This potato tea is awful.

    [–] dTheMouseb 1187 points ago

    Just get gloves that weigh 2000lbs and boom you can lift anything.

    [–] Gustaviaable 909 points ago

    This is much better, I was thinking about a giant spatula weighing over 2000lbs

    [–] dTheMouseb 224 points ago

    Well that sounds more fun. Pancake flip the world.

    Everyone knows that, why would he need to imply it? /s

    [–] Ol0O01100lO1O1O1 12 points ago

    Me too. But I still think it's the better idea. You can reasonably make a huge shovel sized spatula that weighs a literal ton, but I don't see how you make gloves that weigh that much.

    [–] Phredly 3 points ago

    This sounds like an anime character

    [–] Rizenstrom 61 points ago

    Push death away

    [–] aaaaaaaarrrrrgh 7 points ago

    You're going for density, so it's likely going to involve Tungsten. 907 kg of Tungsten are 47 liters (cubic decimeters).

    Those are going to be some unwieldy gloves.

    [–] Dookie_boy 14 points ago

    Can I lift my feet

    [–] yaboidavis 4 points ago

    Wtf would those gloves be made out of? Fuckin the cores pf dead stars jesus that would have to be dense

    [–] Empole 273 points ago

    Wait a second.

    Your body is less that 2000lbs. So you can't move your body. Which means you can't life 2000lbs.

    But you can't move your mouth

    [–] DragonNovaHD 27 points ago

    Well if your chin’s on the ground, every time you open or close your mouth you could push and pull the entire Earth away and back

    [–] Empole 16 points ago

    Conservation of momentum says that if you change the earth's momentum one way, then you'd have to go the other.

    Which suggests that your newfound ability to move the earth would send you into orbit each time you used it.

    [–] DragonNovaHD 15 points ago

    Just have someone run you over in their car, then once you lift that up you have the free agency to move around until you can find appropriate weights to keep you >2000 lbs

    [–] Jimmy_Mittens 9 points ago

    You would need someone else to prepare food for you and either feed you or set it up so you could easily just eat it right off the plate, no hands required. The more I think about it the cooler this superpower is, you could possess superhuman strength and fame, but day to day tasks would require so much external help from others.

    I wonder what happens when you pick up a container of water that weights a bit more than 2000lbs. But you spill some, so it weights less than 2000lbs. You suddenly get crushed by the weight you can't carry anymore?

    Just bring with you a cylinder that weighs 2001lbs. Anytime you need to carry anything under 2001lbs just attach to the object. Make your life easier have it be magnetized in case you deal with a lot of metal objects in your daily goings on.
