So by that post, HP is definitely rest mass, I think. Relativistic collision damage would be calculated by substituting in the proper formula for T — that is, T=mγc^2-mc^2.
I shouldn't do math at four in the morning. It starts conversations like this.

And, of course, Brett is also right, since the two formulae are the same thing.

So the other night my gaming group, with a grand total of 2 players, was wandering around in a goblin lair built into a mountain too close to town. A Jelly had been killing and eating all the goblins and my group decided it was best to grab a torch and light the jelly on fire.

P1: "I grab a torch off the wall and throw it at the jelly."
Me: "You throw too well and the back end of the torch sticks in the gels body without lighting it."
P1: "..."

And then later the Ranger picked up a book and was blasted with a vision that caused him to pass out.

P1: OOC: Did he S***t himself?
me: yes.
P2: I roll to see if I retain my dignity. (Rolls a 2)
me: your pants fall down and you fall on the remains of the goblin's loincloth, dignity not retained!

Fallout-esque post-apocalyptic game. We're dealing with newly-sapient robots.

After one or two very, very bits of lateral thinking by our cleric in a D&D 3.5 game.

Fighter: "...Its amazing what he can do with a few bits of string and a litre of oil."
Cleric: "Give me 100 litres of oil, and I can destroy an army...give me 1000 litres of Oil, and I could rule the world."

"We're here to warn you about the exploding mechanical tuna!"

My wife's spy character to the Russian sentries who have just caught her trying to sneak into a secret arctic base in a Cold War era espionage campaign. There really was a mechanical tuna; the captain of the super-sub she is currently on designs robotic marine life in his spare time, and she had deployed one of them to the other side of the island as a diversion. And this was about the time the robot fish exploded.

In a post-apocalyptic, Fallout-inspired game…

“Wow, that's the first non-mutated creature I've OH MY GODS! It's the bastard offspring of the Killer Rabbit of Caerbannog and a Pikachu!”
