This is why I love Fark. We can have intelligent and scientific discussions from a headline about how many fingers fit in my mom's snatch. :)

Ambitwistor: Xai: that can't be right.

It is right. Helpful conversion: a black hole's radius is 3 km for every solar mass.

At that size it is 8.54x10^13 times the volume of the sun, and at a mere 6.2b solar masses it would be 0.00007% the density of the sun. That cannot be right.

Density calculations like that break down because they assume Euclidean geometry. Anyway, a black hole is virtually empty (pure vacuum, plus whatever may briefly may be passing through it), except for a point singularity at the center of infinite density.

Have either of you known the touch of a woman?

I'll just leave this here enjoy.

Awesome. Loved it when MC Hawking kicked in with his mad skillz.

12 particles of matter
4 forces of nature

whatshisname: So what was the radius?

12.

Both parts of the headline are farking funny.

Black holes are the space equivalent of CO2 induced greenhouse warming.
