I stand corrected. I made a wrong assumption.

But then, being one of the galactically stupid or perhaps fallen off of stiletto heels and bumped my head, I may have misunderstood the question.

I doubt any of you guests weighed enough to excerpt that much pressure.

It would take a person weighing 300+ lbs standing on a ¼ sq.inch heal on the steel ball to make the indentation used in Janka test.

The pins used in the heels posted by BRP has a sizable flat head and not likely less than ¼ sq. inch...

By the way are you sure that they are indentations and not a blemish, like fish-eyes, in the finish?

Seems your math is FAULTY with such declarations. Yes you did dispute the math and the science, your Janka post was referring to the post I made about the wood floor manufacturers using language about disclaiming injury from stiletto heels, the 2,000 psi comparison to a 3/8" undamaged stilletto heel.

There is a scale in the photo and SEVERAL of the heels pictured are less than 1/4 sq. inch.

You did dispute the original poster.

Oh, and by the way kittens are SHORT heeled STILETTO shoes.

Asking a question "By the way are you sure that they are indentations and not a blemish, like fish-eyes, in the finish?" is not disputing the OP, it's a question.

Expressing an opinion is not arguing.

Kittens are cute little fury felines.
