I just wanted to disprove the notion that you could determine it was indeed a black hole using an x-ray. Chalk up another stupid explanation for the biologist.

Like I said, I have the machine all warmed up if you wanna prove me wrong tongue.gif

I'm not flying to SF so you can conduct experiments on me. I will not fall for that again.

Quick question before this thing finally kicks off. Should I disable a core or two on my 1055t so I can fold my 5770 in that rig? I think the 5770 only gets like 4K PPD and all 6 SMP cores are pulling around 16K PPD, would it be worth it? Also is there some tweaks I should be doing for the 1055t and 5770 to yield more PPD?

I also remembered I have a 6670 in my HTPC I might as well fold. The CPU is only a Athlon X2 5800+ but its on a stock cooler so I don't think I'll fold that one.

Depends on the size of the black hole, if it's pretty much heart sized then assuming your body doesn't collapse in on itself and the world is torn apart, the X-rays would likely all disappear past the event horizon somewhere around your ribcage and disappear.

But assuming that it's an incredibly small micro black hole, then no X-rays will pass through the black hole (they will be swallowed) and hit the film, so in theory your heart would appear bright white because the film behind your heart wouldn't have been exposed to any X-rays.

Also to keep it on topic, folding.

But aren't there other explanations for both those x-ray results? It's not as if someone would look at a white space where the heart should be and claim it was a micro black hole...

So again, the whole "x-ray" thing working was a ridiculous premise.

It's a special diagnostic imaging machine. I just used "X-ray" as common vernacular so you wouldn't feel left out.

Yes the could be other explanations, but none of them are much more plausible unless your heart has been encased in stone, you have a fist sized tumour where your heart should be, your blood has turned to mercury etc.

Then again, if it was a black hole then there wouldn't be just a solid white mass where your heart should be, there would be a gradient of black to white around the entire area.

If this happens to anyone here, please PM me. I will compensate you for your time a la blueberry cheesecake crepes biggrin.gif
