    I did use a spoon. I thought that sopping up the "gravy" with a biscuit got it all. sorry.

    Actually, it's likely my mistake. The rattling sound I'm hearing is probably the dime I stuck up my nose last month. I have no doubt in your brain-sopping ability.

    Honestly, how can they actually determine the size, exact distance, mass, angles, etc from something that is 3.5 BILLION lightyears away?

    And which one of us is going to go out and prove one of these nut-brains wrong?

    I think they're messing with us.

    No vacation needed. The problem was probably caused by where the link came from. I think it was some site that changes your link to something bad if you hot link to them. It has happened before and it will happen again.

    Here ya go. What a great field to work in. I shouldn't have spent high school catchin' a buzz, that's for sure.

    I assumed you were joking. I went to the link and it worked fine. and by fine, I don't mean porn.

    It has something to do with the fact that the two black holes are orbiting each other. Actually, the are both orbitting the centr of gravity for the two masses taken together, which means that the smaller hole has a big orbit around the tag-team center point, and the bigger one has a smaller orbit (which from here looks like a liiiiiiittle teeny wobble) around the same point. Using math that I do not begin to understand and the Doppler effect (which makes light and sound waves seem shorter or longer depending on whether they are coming towards or away from you), one can use the measured orbits to calculate the mass of each of the objects.

    One of our more scientifically literate Foosters can probably explain it a lot better than I can, but I think that's more or less the Readers Digest version.

    And yes, as a matter of fact, I did stay at a Holiday Inn Express last night . . . .

    That's another thing. IT'S A FREAKING DOT!! A dot for crying out loud. And they use theories to solve math to tell you what that dot is, its size, mass, distance. Hell, for they know it could be a piece of lint between the lenses.

    I'm not saying that some of this cannot be done. But it seems far fetched - especially talking about "holes" in space 3.5 BILLION lightyears away. But we take they're word for it, because they're geeks.
