  • Desktop Black Hole

    Posted by Shannon Love on October 15th, 2009 (All posts by )

    So, Chinese scientist have made a “desktop blackhole”. Big whoop. I’ve had one on my desktop for years.

    At least, things tossed onto my desk seem to disappear completely never to be seen again. Clearly, Occam’s razor says that a black hole is the most likely explanation.

      How about e-mail in-boxes, wouldn’t you want to look there for a black hole?

      Of course, the “desk top black hole” is utterly different from the thing everyone else calls a “black hole”. It’s kind of like calling a dodo bird a T-Rex because both had tiny front limbs.
