It was a wormhole subby, a wormhole to the gamma quadrant.

Kardashians, ok. But Cling-on? No. Romulans and Ori are also acceptable.

What is a "cling-on?" Something you stick to something? I know what a Klingon is, but a cling-on?

A cling-on is warfs race, from star trek. A klingon sounds like a knock off window De-kal.

See fuzzball for a theory of black holes where the mass isn't concentrated into a center point.

Cling-ons are those little bits of poo that stick to your butt hair after you take a dump.

I stopped reading at the really inane description of tidal forces. Spaghettification? WTF?

Actually, I was interested in the time it would take for a black hole to dissolve away into space from heat death. Guess I'll just Google it.

The Black Hole was a pretty farked up movie, especially given that it was a Disney film.

What more do you need to know than get the multiplier to 5x and track up points in the lower level?

It's a small black cat you've been away from for two weeks.

...putting the "cling-ons" next to a "black hole". Next, somebody figures out why the amateur porn star family name was used in association with "black hole" instead of the name of the Star Trek aliens.

A while ago, a local news station reported about a Star Trek convention in the city, and referred to a group of Klingon cosplayers as "Cling Ons". Unfortunately, I can't find the original thread. Anyone else care to try?

Cling-ons on the starboard bow. Someone scrape them off.

That was a nice Gottlieb System 80 game, and thankfully, wasn't the horrid System 1/Rockwell abomination.

Look out for cling-ons.

/you're going to get cling-ons.

The gravity on your body gets stronger at your feet faster than at your head, stretching you out like a spaghetti noodle. It's a term they've been using for decades.

Exactly. Everything that gets 'sucked' into a black hole doesn't get destroyed, but merely transmuted into a single, infinitesimal, quantum noodle, so tiny and bereft of original qualitative information, it's been dubbed the quantum apostrophe.

No, that's not remotely everything I wanted to know about black holes. Also:

This creates a spherical zone surrounding the singularity called the event horizon from which nothing can escape.

I thought current theory says that black holes evaporate?
 
2013-01-21 04:09:17 PM  
The question I wanted to know is "where are the rest of them?" I do believe there should be many more than we know of.
