REVIEWS Disney Infinity 3.0 Review

After all these years, and growing up with Windows 3.1, I have seen an entire evolution of computers and software. Touch screens and large resolutions were a pipe dream just 15 years ago. Now it's the norm. Going from a Packard Bell (yes, before HP) that couldn't run 3D Ultra Mini...

I haven't seen Antman yet, but the idea of shrinkage always bugs me. There's a few things that nobody seems to think about that would happen if you were suddenly reduced to the size of an insect.

Vsauce3 has a video that talks about some of them here:

However, there's another issue. You're made up of cells and atoms and stuff. A lot of them. If your entire body were to shrink, two things might happen. Either all of those particles would shrink down to an impossible size, gazillions of times smaller than physically possible, or you would lose a buttload of matter.

The problem is what would happen to all of it? What would it turn into? If your molecules were suddenly ripped apart, shrinking would end very badly for you. On the other hand, if you were somehow able to survive, you would never be the same. Proteins make up who you are. Shrinking would require you to lose of your DNA, brain functionality, memories, etc, in order for everything to be able to fit inside your new shrunken...worthless body.
