    As I recall there were some who thought that the first atomic bomb would "ignite the atmosphere" and were therefore opposed to it.

    Maybe the black hole that they create will be small enough just to scrunch up Switzerland and France, and stop there. I could deal with that. :D

    You know, this brings up the point, that just because you CAN, doesn't mean you SHOULD.

    I'm not worried about black holes that are less massive than me. I figure so long as my gravity is stronger than its, I can deal.

    Holes in spacetime are freaky conceptually, but in person a hole too small to get your foot stuck in isn't all that intimidating.

    remember when people were afraid of internal combustion engines because gas is flammable?

    Technically, a one-atom size black hole would suck in everything around it and just keep growing until it consumed the entire earth, moon, then solar system. My guess is the earth would collapse in a matter of seconds. :eusa_whistle:

    Hey, Cocknailed.......can we REALLY believe what you say? Especially after all your other posts which show you to be a brain dead lowborn Polish gutter slut who is also a colon jousting cum gurgler.

    I don't think that it would create a sustainable black hole, it would collapse under it's own gravity after approx. a second or so.
