# Is this possible?

 Posts: 43 Add as FriendChallenge to a DebateSend a Message 8/12/2013 5:03:48 AMPosted: 3 years agoIs it possible for an object's center (eg an a perfect sphere) to allign perfectly with centers of two other objects in reality? Theoretically it seems possible if you place identical balls on a perfect plane and roll one ball past the line created by two objects, but i dont think such plane is possible..

PM me with any questions or concerns!

Like hitting a bull's-eye from gigametre away.

But the hero... never gets to see that ending. They'll never know if their sacrifice actually made a difference. They'll never know if the day was really saved. In the end, they just have to have faith.
