Don't talk about your mom like that subby. It makes her cry.

/I'll make sure she feels better later though.

100 pounds of pure titanium, 200 feet of fiber optic cable, seven 100,000 watt industrial-strength capacitors, and a toaster.

Is a wormhole the same as a black hole? Legitimately asking.

Consensual sex outside your normative gender preference is still sex.

Brynden Rivers: Is a wormhole the same as a black hole? Legitimately asking.


No, they are different things.

A black hole is matter condensed so much it rips a hole in spacetime. We know they exist, and we have pictures!

A wormhole is a theoretical passage between distant points in space, which also theoretically would allow faster than light travel. It's only math.

/also, "yes"
//they're both your mom!
///I'm required to make that joke

No, but the energy values are equally off the charts.

A black hole is the area where so much mass has gathered spacetime gets flipped and space only goes in one direction, towards the singularity, so nothing escapes after passing the event horizon. There's no out, only the inevitable

A wormhole is two regions of spacetime that are joined that would usually be non-adjacent. The inside of the passage itself would have to remain normal spacetime.

Sorry, but you're going to have a pretty big credit card bill this month.
Oh, and you're going to need a new toaster.

I knew it. Subby's headline is bullshiat.

Is that all it takes?

Here I was thinking of too many other things.

Yeah, but who wants that crappy imperial measure black hole?

It won't fit any universe specced in metric without an adapter.
