    So how many anti-angels can dance on the head of an anti-pin?

    At my age I can only manage one.

    Are you channelling Trim?


    As long as he doesn't try tunneling me.

    Holes are generally hard to get hold of. If you could solve that problem there would be more happiness in the world.
  1.  
    How would we know the location of Moon mass stable black holes? They are only 0.1 mm diameter. Could we send out a myriad "dust probes" and look for unexpected navigational deviations?

    But in any case, conversation here has convinced me that black holes won't help us produce antimatter from virtual particles

    Not to mention that something with the mass of a moon (pretty much any old moon) would be rather inconvenient aboard a spacecraft.
  2.  
    I already mentioned that. It plays havoc with your thrust-to-weight ratio.

    Still, could there be some of these things in stable orbit around Sol?

    I certainly hope not.

    Otherwise I will have to buy some more bed covers.

    An undiscovered micro-moon around Uranus would do that

    I've got some home repair tasks to do this weekend. Where can I buy a box of 1/4" holes? I'm getting tired of making them myself.

    Do you need left handed or right handed holes?

    Well, you are out of luck then. I think that rig can only make clockwise holes.

    Nice depth stop though.
    I've heard that if you drill too deeply, the patient tends to become first quite noisy, then very quiet.

    I'd like to use one on a LiPo battery at full load.

    Yeah, but nobody wants drills--they want the holes.

    Holes are excellent. They add lightness, and are great for sticking things into.

    Some holes are greater than others. You have the agenbyte of inwit, a tiny pinprick, all they way up to the yearning maw of an xwife. Usually, what goes in a hole from one side comes out immediately from the other side, but a special kind of hole, called a "tunnel", violates this general principle. Nobody knows why.

    They are also used extensively for sticking into things.

    Odd, isn't it?

    Well you wouldn't be around if something wasn't stuck in a hole sometime.

    I was a very special experiment.

    How does one define success in this case?
