    I'm pretty sure caterpillars can't get that big, due to the strength of chitin (their exoskeleton) and their internal pressure.

    Basically, you can show that giant insects are at least one...

    Thanks for the info. I see the comparisons with irl monies and the bare bones fact that crypto is simply not all that different from irl monies is better understood by me.

    So long as people are investing in crypto with the actual long-term plan to convert that crypto back into real world monies, I can't really take the value seriously. As long as the value of crypto...

    The shorter the wavelength, the higher the energy.

    A photon with a wavelength of the Planck Length would have energy of the Planck Energy - ~2 GJ

    There is no upper bound on the energy a photon...

    Is tourism the only thing they do for the UK?

    Only in bound systems, but the BH is a bound system.

    I'm just pointing out that energy is not always quantized. It's the boundary conditions that create quantization of energy and other things.

    A Planck mass (assuming h-bar and not h is used as Planck's constant - an arbitrary choice), is 22 micrograms. Not that small, on a particle scale. I mean, unlike the Planck length, which happens...

    41 gun salute? Is that a thing? I've heard of a 21 gun salute (which is really a 7 gun salute 3 times), but I do not know the symbolic meaning of 21, so ... sure why not 41? But do all 41 guns...
