    Hrm, wait a second. If the _package_ dimensoins are 0x0x0, then the actualt product must be _even smaller_! nice! an object with _negative_ dimensions (so, gives more space to the universe), weights 40 tons, and cost only $1.08! sweet! where can i get me one of these?

    We already sent one.  Check for negative space in your mailbox.

    Excuse me, reality check. The add clearly specified a price of 1.80$ not 1.08$. You didn't really think it would be that cheap, did ya?

    There should be a hotline you could call to check wether something simply seems funny or actually is funny.

    What would be the acceleration due to gravity due to that mass at, say, one meter?  Assuming it's a point singularity, I mean.  I could run up the number, and am probably bored enough to do so, but don't feel like it at the moment.

    It doesn't make much difference whether that mass is in a point singularity or a big slab with a center of gravity at the same location.  So the acceleration due to gravity is about what you'd feel from standing next to forty ton concrete wall -- just about nothing.


    This reminds me of those commercials that offer a free Crapomatic 5000, just pay an extra $14.95 shipping and handling!  You could really make a fortune shipping pieces of a black hole for $5 a pound.  Splitting it up into manageable pieces might be tricky though.
     

    Well, we'll assume the weight in pounds is measured at 1 g, and we'll assume Anon is about 280 lb, also at 1 g. Then I reckon that the force is about 3.4E-04 Newtons, or 7.6E-05 lbf (converted to crazy units for you Muhrcans) :)

    Wow, so you mean 95% of computer users smoke marijuana? That means practically the entire "civilized" world is smoking joints. I'm surprised the world still has wars, I thought weed was supposed to make you all mellow and stuff.

    D'oh... everyone knows that wars are fought by Windows users who did not smoke pot to relax.

    See, bills for pennies, those are mildly funny; my best friend got a new job, and his first PAYCHECK was $0.03. Seems the accounting department mis-typed his hire date, so his first two weeks of work got him three cents after withholdings. Thankfully, he was able to get it fixed before the rent came due (barely.)

    I remember this from a book long time back... the bank manager called up the guy who sent the $0.00 cheque... asking why he was trying to be funny because the banks computer crashed processing that cheque!

    Red Text Ok guys, I just guessing here, but what if that 40 tons were dropped on your foot, wouldnt that be hazardous?

    I'm surprised that you al seem to think these are the best dialogs ever. I think this is the worst Potpourri I've seen here yet. And they didn't even post the dialog box I sent in! sigh Maybe next time...

    That would be a black hole.

    Seriously, any object with dimensions of 0 x 0 x 0 and finite mass, is by definition, infinitely dense, therefore making it a black hole.
