Time. So the "burp" observed was probably a few hundred thousand millennia worth of time exploding out into a massive cloud of temporal displacement. Anything it touches would age thousands of years in a matter of seconds (kinda like that Nazi dude that drank out of the wrong goblet at the end of Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade).

Ah, well--as a polar-ring/disk galaxy, NGC 660 was pretty farked-up to begin with.

So that's what they look like. I've been into the music for a few years but never actually saw what they looked like. Huh.

depends on whether you were wearing a condom or riding bare back.

If bare back, then you have the makings of a chocolate cream pie

So, as a dummy, to what extent have black holes been proved, rather than existing as theoretical constructs? And, I'm too decent a person to think about what happens under an event horizon.

What? We can see them.... and see things being sucked into them. Which is what happened in the article... when a star and/or dust gets sucked into a black hole, it accelerates and breaks normal atomic bonds, which releases a lot of energy.. thus the burst of light etc.

Black holes are in no way theoretical.

They definitely exist. And there's a lot of them. And if you look at the center of a galaxy, you can find a huge one. That includes our own galaxy.

Alonjar: We can see them


well actually we can't see them, what we can see is the jets coming out of their poles, at least when they're active.

The first definitive proof was observing stars get deflected around an invisible point in the center of the galaxy as if they were rocks in a sling. So yes, to reiterate, they are most definately real.

2. Welcome to Fark.
