Matter Sucked in by Black Holes May Travel into the Future, Get Spit Back Out

And when they return, they come out minty fresh. Or not...

I'm very well acquainted, too, with matters mathematical
I understand equations, both the simple and quadratical
About binomial theorem I am teeming with a lot o' news
With many cheerful facts about the square of the hypotenuse
I'm very good at integral and differential calculus
I know the scientific names of beings animalculous
In short, in matters vegetable, animal, and mineral
I am the very model of a modern Major-General

@MOTW - Gilbert & Sullivan RULE (Britannia)!

I think Dave explained it best when he said if you could look into a black hole you'd find a little man with a flashlight looking for the breaker switch.

Instead, it would be prudent to see how ongoing calculations using loop quantum gravity unfold. If predictions improve and begin to look more like some of the unexplained observed astronomical phenomena, it could be that this new result will both explain how quantum gravity works and reshape our understanding of both the past and the future of our universe.

I don't understand what the heck he or she is talking about, but move that Mr. Language Person slap them silly.

Why you ask? Longest run-on sentence this side of 2001.

I think I saw the movie about this, with the Lincoln & bourbon guy in it...

None of this "matters" to me. M

One of my favorite sayings is: "The lecture on time travel will be held last Wednesday."

Sort of like when your baby tastes pureed liver for the first time.

Black holes are usually found in black socks.

Soundgarden's "Black Hole Sun" had this nailed years ago.


This happens to me all the time. I go to sleep on Monday, then I wake up and it’s Tuesday.

This explains the phenomena of how your wife, while rolling her eyes and shaking her head, can open a drawer that you swear you had already looked in (three times) for the very screwdriver that she is currently waving in front of you, and asking if the profanity was really necessary.

So we are just the unwanted watermelon seeds of the black holes?

Remember in 1979 when Disney sent us on ablack hole ride to hell?

(There's a reason some are just called holes.)

I do agree with the science behind the phenomenon that, in heavy gravitational spaces, time DOES seem to stand still...such as during presentations by your insurance agent, standing on line at the DMV, during Sunday sermons etc.

About 6 months before I was born, my Mom was a few miles downwind of the Santa Susana Field Laboratory when they had their Sodium Reactor Meltdown. I'm still waiting for my mutant powers to really kick in.

So far, I can only time travel a little bit. Just forward 6-8 hours. A little longer if I went to a party the night before...
