    This is simply what Albert Einstein called a though experiment

    No, it is merely fantasy. It is easy to mistake it for a thought experiment if one is bewitched by the words. Einstein's thought experiments all fell within the domain of being analyzable in terms of known physical principles. The original statement having to do with "unbreakable" things clearly falls outside the realm of physics and into fantasy. It is not a legitimate candidate for a thought experiment.

    Actually this thread is deplorable in the disrespect given to the OP. There is one clear answer that I read here but it was not posted untill the ego's here had ridiculed the OP for having the "stupidity" to ask such a question. This is one of the most discusting aspects of this forum. It is very unattractive.

    No one ridiculed the "stupidity" of the OP. You are making a statement that has no basis in fact. For there to be a basis in fact you would have to point to a post where the OP was called stupid.

    Several folks, myself included, did point out that the OP's "what if" question was outside the domain of physics and therefore could not be logically answered within physics.

    Your complain is more fantastic less factual and also less logical than the OP's question.
