    • idea: when your trying to stop a bullet, usually bullet proof glass does a good job, the bullet spents a lot of its energy on breaking the glass before getting through, its stopped before then, so just replace the glass with say a hard leather over the baseball mitt, and maybe that might stop the ball

  • Your glove is oiled. Put that pressure on it and you get fire. Think of oiling a pcp gun. There is a reason they use silicon oil. You actually can get most speed by using that property, or ruin your gun.

[They were told], "Eat from the provisions of your Lord and be grateful to Him. A good land [have you], and a forgiving Lord." - Saheeh International ﴿فَأَعرَضوا فَأَرسَلنا عَلَيهِم سَيلَ العَرِمِ وَبَدَّلناهُم بِجَنَّتَيهِم جَنَّتَينِ ذَواتَي أُكُلٍ خَمطٍ وَأَثلٍ وَشَيءٍ مِن سِدرٍ قَليلٍ﴾ [سبأ: ١٦] But they turned away [refusing], so We sent upon them the flood of the dam, and We replaced their two [fields of] gardens with gardens of bitter fruit, tamarisks and something of sparse lote trees. - Saheeh International ﴿ذلِكَ جَزَيناهُم بِما كَفَروا وَهَل نُجازي إِلَّا الكَفورَ﴾ [سبأ: ١٧] [By] that We repaid them because they disbelieved. And do We [thus] repay except the ungrateful? - Saheeh International ﴿وَجَعَلنا بَينَهُم وَبَينَ القُرَى الَّتي بارَكنا فيها قُرًى ظاهِرَةً وَقَدَّرنا فيهَا السَّيرَ سيروا فيها لَيالِيَ وَأَيّامًا آمِنينَ﴾ [سبأ: ١٨] And We placed between them and the cities which We had blessed [many] visible cities. And We determined between them the [distances of] journey, [saying], "Travel between them by night or by day in safety." - Saheeh International ﴿فَقالوا رَبَّنا باعِد بَينَ أَسفارِنا وَظَلَموا أَنفُسَهُم فَجَعَلناهُم أَحاديثَ وَمَزَّقناهُم كُلَّ مُمَزَّقٍ إِنَّ في ذلِكَ لَآياتٍ لِكُلِّ صَبّارٍ شَكورٍ﴾ [سبأ: ١٩] But [insolently] they said, "Our Lord, lengthen the distance between our journeys," and wronged themselves, so We made them narrations and dispersed them in total dispersion. Indeed in that are signs for everyone patient and grateful. - Saheeh International ﴿وَلَقَد صَدَّقَ عَلَيهِم إِبليسُ ظَنَّهُ فَاتَّبَعوهُ إِلّا فَريقًا مِنَ المُؤمِنينَ﴾ [سبأ: ٢٠] And Iblees had already confirmed through them his assumption, so they followed him, except for a party of believers. - Saheeh International ﴿وَما كانَ لَهُ عَلَيهِم مِن سُلطانٍ إِلّا لِنَعلَمَ مَن يُؤمِنُ بِالآخِرَةِ مِمَّن هُوَ مِنها في شَكٍّ وَرَبُّكَ عَلى كُلِّ شَيءٍ حَفيظٌ﴾ [سبأ: ٢١] And he had over them no authority except [it was decreed] that We might make evident who believes in the Hereafter from who is thereof in doubt. And your Lord, over all things, is Guardian. - Saheeh International ﴿قُلِ ادعُوا الَّذينَ زَعَمتُم مِن دونِ اللَّهِ لا يَملِكونَ مِثقالَ ذَرَّةٍ فِي السَّماواتِ وَلا فِي الأَرضِ وَما لَهُم فيهِما مِن شِركٍ وَما لَهُ مِنهُم مِن ظَهيرٍ﴾ [سبأ: ٢٢] Say, [O Muḥammad], "Invoke those you claim [as deities] besides Allāh." They do not possess an atom's weight [of ability] in the heavens or on the earth, and they do not have therein any partnership [with Him], nor is there for Him from among them any assistant. - Saheeh International
