You really don’t! Clocking in at 2.9m (or 9’6″) tall, Lady Dimitrescu is probably the absolute last individual you’d want stepping on you.
Previously, we saw how the character compared to real humans — she towered over them. In a sponsored clip, YouTuber Kyle Hill did the maths to figure out what would happen if she actually stepped on someone.
“Unlike Lady Dimitrescu’s height, we do not have a canonical mass, so we’re going to have to estimate it indirectly,” explained Hill. To do that, he used the concept of body mass index, which is an imperfect way to correlate height with mass and health.
“There are two problems with this indirect approach,” he continued. The first is that there is no BMI chart that captures the character’s height, so it’s necessary to extrapolate to get a useable number. “The second problem is that we have to eyeball her BMI to work backward and get her mass.” Hill, however, estimated that the character’s BMI is between 24 and 26.
With that, he was able to figure out that the character (apparently!) weighs 204 kg.
But since the character wears high heels, that’s where things get really really dangerous if she were to step on people. Granted, it depends on how quickly she stepped and how much weight was behind her leg.
So, according to Hill’s estimation, if all her body weight was behind her in a quick step, the result would be a value for pressure that’s 145 million Pa. “Now, about more than half of what it would take to puncture structural steel.”
And here are the inevitable recreations, including a head made of ballistic gel.
And finally, a coconut.
