Bucky Katt: Heh, for a second I thought they were talking about my checking account.
Animatronik: Sadly, your mom was not one of these.
OBBN: I'll go with c) Subby's Mom
Hiro-ACiD: About damn time, I've been going grey waiting for this...[i.imgur.com image 400x293]
czetie: FTFA: This is the point at which they go dark, because it requires so much energy to escape them that not even light can get away.*sigh* Black holes do not work like that.But since this is io9, I suppose it's no surprise that their description of a Kerr black hole comes off sounding like the premise to the most generic SyFy movie ever: full of scienty buzzwords like "portal", meaning nothing.
MaudlinMutantMollusk: Subby's mom?
Apos: Pamela Anderson?
jamspoon: So if a black hole collapses to a singularity it would also have an infinite spin?
jamspoon: Or would the spin prevent it collapsing until the spin leaks away?
nimbers: I want to see what happens when a regular black hole attempts to pass through the empty space of a black ring-hole.
make me some tea: Carl Sagan already thought of that one.[scifiportal.eu image 850x507]

itcamefromschenectady: Singularities don't exist in reality; they're just things that tell you your theory is inadequate. Quantum mechanics originally involved singularities, and then physicists invented renormalization to get around them.Probably black holes are really just balls of quantum strings.See:http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fuzzball_(string_theory)
