Hawking is not exactly saying that what we call black holes don't exist so read the article first.

http://www.independent.co.uk/news/science/stephen-hawking-there-are-no-black-holes-9085016.html

All their speculation and this brilliant genius and a century of physical modeling and we still know nothing. We now have another model to be disproved. Until we can observe and measure this phenomenon we will never understand it. On one hand I'm glad that Hawking doesn't work for the IPCC, on the other imagine the world if he put his genius to work engineering medical implants or improving power plant efficiency.

First I thought there is one, called Opoohbah. Ha, Hawking is wrong! But on second thought, I come to the conclusion that Hawking has to be right. I never heard Opoohbah saying "cogito ergo sum."

PS: the missing reference. We should stop to cite press articles whenever possible.

I am not capable of fully understanding the wording of that abstract. I really don't care exactly what Hawking says about black holes either. I know its important work and all, but are they making guesses or not?

It may be as a species, that we're incapable of going much further.

Has anybody asked the Dolphins recently I wonder ?

Did you know that black holes can contain another black holes?

Such as when you stick a flute up your ass.

It's easy. My Little Pony is a physicist with a massive penis envy complex. She finds any sliver of opportunity to simply post "lol usa" like a 'tard.

You're welcome :D

Speaking of things inside holes, does that make Hawking fans bronies?

Everybody here knows that you wear a toilet seat to look smarter, because someone told you that this would double the intelligence of the hole, my little pizza baker.

Have you read the Uplift Universe series by David Brin? Dolphins in space.
Quote:
David Brin's Uplift Universe portrays humanity's desperate struggle for survival in a dangerous universe... and how we may cope by taking wise partners with us on this journey. Artificial intelligence is one way that we may add diversity to our civilization. But in this series we've done it by giving a boost in intelligence to some of our fellow creatures on Planet Earth. Dolphins and apes -- especially -- seem trapped under a "glass ceiling" that limits their ability to speak, to argue, to create, to use tools, to invent and take part in Terran culture. But what if we, the first species on Earth to cross the wide gulf of sapience, were to turn around and offer a hand to others? To pass on the gift (that sometimes threatens to be a curse) of fully empowered mind?

And then, what if we find out that's the normal thing to do? What if others have been performing "uplift" for a very long time, out there amid the myriad stars?

Billions of years ago, an alien race known as the Progenitors began to genetically alter lower species, granting them intelligence, so they can enter Galactic civilization, and achieve star-faring status. No species has ever reached the stars without the guidance of a patron -- except humankind. Humans, by their own initiative achieved star-faring status, and uplifted their own clans, chimpanzees and dolphins. But it's a dangerous universe, and established alien clans don't look favorably upon upstart Earthlings, who claim to have started on their own.

I'm not reading it unless something with a dolphin or something with a dark hole goes in or near another dark hole or dolphin. There's just no entertaining reading anymore.

There's inter-species frottage and copulation in it (among a lot of inter-species war). It's decent. I listened to the audiobooks.
