Sounds like if we ever hang out, it's going to be an unstoppable force versus immovable object type of battle.


I have the ability to notice Batman references.


I've actually been trying to figure out where the Immovable Object/Unstoppable Force reference started.  I assumed it was a WoW reference when I heard it in Batman.

Actually, that phrase has been around for a REALLY long time.  I've been hearing it my whole life, but it took a Google search today for me to discover that it's been around since at least the 3rd century BC.

Because I'm too lazy to find a good source, here's a Wikipedia page:

Edit: I wasn't going to say it, but

is likely to be the most depressing thing I read all week.  I'm taking solace in the fact that you figured that couldn't be right and wondered where it really came from. (So, you know, if I misinterpreted the rest of your post, don't tell me.)
