    An article on Wired about whether or not Godzilla could ice skate:
    http://www.wired.com/2014/05/could-godzilla-ice-skate/

    Takes into consideration things like the compressive strength of the ice, the pressure of the blade under Godzilla's feet, etc. Makes an incorrect assumption about the bottom of a skate blade which completely messes up his math, but fun none the less.

    So, assuming Godzilla could skate, what would he wear? Would he wear all black ala Evan Lysacheck, or something a bit techno swan ala Takahashi? And perhaps more importantly, what music would he use? Blue Oyster Cult's "Godzilla"?

    They say black is slimming.

    I bet Godzilla has a wonderful V-spin. (That's what you call the one Sandhu and Buttle did, right?) ;)

    BEST. THREAD. EVER.

    I think he'd go for as many rhinestones as possible. Swarovski + sponsors = he could support his own skating habit.

    Is that the butt spin? Or the pee on the fire hydrant spin?

    I think Godzilla might wear purple.

    He could do a pair number with Mothra. I'm not the only one who remembers those cheesy '60s movies am I?

    We will need an ice rink same size as Texas for Godzilla to skate. The usual ice rink is just the size of his foot.

    This cracks me! :scream: I guess T-Rex would be very sympathy towards Godzilla. Poor fellow!

    I have been forced to watch several of these in the past year. Advantage is you can REALLY annoy your family by singing the fairies' "Mothra" song :)

    No no no. The pairs number would have to be with Rodan. Imagine the height and distance on the throws.

    Well, then, lifts with Mothra. Effortless, as Mothra can assist in levitation. They could be an adagio pair.

    But wouldn't Godzilla's Atomic Fire Breath melt the ice?

    But what about the Dinosaur thread?

    Godzilla vs Dinosaurs - that is what I would like to see.

    The participants will need to get in shape for this -- lots of bench presses to pump up their Triceratops.

    My guess is......no. He'll just have to settle for being ISU President.

    Those who can't do, run for public office. (or become skating judges).
