If you hung a hob-nob and a digestive each on a piece of string, like conkers, and threw the digestive at the hob-nob at 6.7mph until one biscuit broke - which biscuit would break first?

I don't know why you specified speeds, but my intuition (a dangerous thing) would say the digestive (assuming the meet face to face, if the digestive came edge on, it would be teh hob nob that broke).
Why? I think that the hob nobs more mixed textures would make it more able to withstand knocks compared to a digestive which tends to be ve very brittle due to its more homogenous texture.
But then, they're all just intuitions.

You know there' one way to find out...... and I'm not bothered to try - someone else can have the glory

Thankfully, neither Einstein or Newton took that attitude. Although, I'm sure the Japanese might have forgone the former's find
