He won't be able to work that out unless there's an afterlife.

He could call himself Ageing Wombat just to hedge his bets.

Are you immortal if you jump into a black hole? (Astronomy, you damn juveniles.)

Provost Harrison
28-01-2009, 15:46:49
Not if you die!

Lurker the Second
28-01-2009, 15:48:33
But what if no one knows you're dead? What if, from their perspective, you are still alive into infinity?

They'd see that the forces around the black hole tore you apart before your vapourised remains got to a place where time appeared to stand still.

Brain. Hurtses.

Not necessarily. Depends on how big the black hole is.

Funko
28-01-2009, 16:09:35
Why?

Provost Harrison

Don't you think that you'd be torn apart before you reach the event horizon - after all - even if it is slightly less than the force required to make it impossible for light to escape, it is still quite a lot of force nonetheless...I wouldn't even fancy my chances at 1% of that force :p

Upon further reading, the far away observer can never actually see you being stationary at the event horizon whatever state you might be in when you got there anyway.

Provost Harrison

We once had a stationary cupboard at my old job...well I never did see it move!

Funko

That joke doesn't really work when you write it does it?

Provost Harrison
28-01-2009, 16:20:14
I was hoping you'd make a spelling mistake and then hilarity could ensue. But you disappointed. Again :(

Provost Harrison
28-01-2009, 16:21:18
Actually someone did label it up that way though...it really brings out the OCD in me and I felt absolutely compelled to correct it :D

So I'm right?

Funko
28-01-2009, 16:41:13
No.

Lurker the Second
28-01-2009, 16:43:06
So you're immortal for infinity minus one, so to speak?

Funko
28-01-2009, 16:49:27
people stop being able to see you before a point before time would appear to stand still because they are observing from a different place to you.

Lurker the Second
28-01-2009, 16:53:44
If you can't see me that's your problem. Besides, if I cross the event horizon without dying I should be good to go.

I say we send Wombat to test it.

most afternoons in the office give me the sensation of eternity

Funko

If you are banking on me not being able to see you to suggest you are still alive you could become immortal just by stopping posting.

Lurker the Second

You'll still have the archives.

We've got plays by Shakespeare but I am pretty sure he's not still alive.

And Angelina Jolie doesn't post here but I'm pretty sure she's alive.

Tizzy

I post here but I feel pretty dead.
