Re: The Coat


Hi. I'm new around here and I don't know if posts are editable - This is my first one - But I just thought I should say that the power is NOT unknown.

Many cases of injuries [ like broken ribs and internal bleeding ] have been seen after being shot while wearing a bullet-proof vest. They save your life[ The bullet never passes through the vest ], but the sheer impact-force of the bullet causes a lot of damage. Joe showed no signs of this, afterwards. I believe that the Coat's ability is to absorb impact, perhaps in specific situations, perhaps any impact.
[ That may also mean that sound and heat cannot pass through it, which would make it a lot more interesting. ] emoticon

Re: The Coat


So you're saying the power *IS* known. emoticon


The coat translates physical harm into sleep instead of damage. The bullets simply knock him out instead of breaking his ribs and causing internal bleeding.

Nice job. It's plausible.

Re: The Coat


Also as I remember when Joe moves the coat inside Karl's closet round objects (possibly ball bearing) fell and rolled around on the floor. So strong force stops impact, weak force holds shot gun particles. I do not you know much about the diameter of shot in a shotgun shell. I would image that shot would be way smaller then say a ball bearing the size of a marble (a steely) That begs the question did the smaller particles fuse into a perfect sphere. If so we got very amazing levels of physics go on here.

Simply answer to this it is a plot element in the script. Having the shot roll around is a good visual and rolling object make good sounds. To get the stuff to fall off the coat would just take a bunch of weak magnets. Problems we have is as always making the fiction fit the reality of the room. Joe gets hit. Falls. Gets dumped in a car. Drag up stairs, drag across the floor, how on earth did the shotgun shot stay on that coat and then with little more then a flick they suddenly fall off.

I will have go at it. Joe was not conscience after he was shot. When he woke up down fall the fragments. Coat must have been aware of his mental state. OH that's a can of worms.

but then again I do not know what was loaded in that shotgun.
