Part programmer, part theologian, part actor, all geek :)

I love to program, and I love technology. Most recently I have become a self proclaimed TDD evangelist hoping to proselytize the programming community around me.

In the "real world" I am the proud father of four beautiful children, and a proud husband of a beautiful wife who light up my world.

@Qmechanic - Those are both very awesome resources. I think they answer just about all my questions. Thanks for sharing those!

@Sofia - I didn't put any constraints that it had to be a carbon based life form. I'm less interested in the biology than I am in what the physical constraints are limiting size, movement, etc... Even if we assumed a fictitious creature/robot that could indeed withstand the forces needed to survive itself, how would the surrounding environment hold up. Even the largest of dinosaurs wasn't this tall, and certainly not this heavy.

@Charles - That's a good point. 100-150 tons would be a heck of a lot of force if it were pushing off a relatively small foot on the ground.

This isn't a troll by the way... I am genuinely curious about this, but am no mathematician. I know it is all very implausible, but would like to understand why.
