I've stopped arguing with people on SE because everyone is so righteous. Please people: calm down, and open your mind a bit.

On many of the large SE sites such as SuperUser and StackExchange, you have to go through three ass holes to find one person who is truly willing to help.

just doing some nit-picking edits. changes "small" to "less massive"

comment What is voltage?
Voltage is simply a difference in electric charge, caused by a number of things. In a battery voltage is caused by a chemical reaction. In a lightning storm, voltage is created by friction. Essentially any time there are more electrons in one place than another you will get a voltage.

comment Gravitational waves in general relativity
@HDE226868 The universe does communicate with itself in the same way that the molecules in a piece of steel communicate to hold its rigidity.

comment Could the Big Bang have simply been two black holes hitting each other at 99% of the speed of light?
@orokusaki Remember that mass is energy and vice-versa, maybe that will help clear things up for you.

answered Would a fast moving (approaching $c$) stream of particles be affected by the gravitational pull of a gas giant?

comment Compression of non-gaseous substances
Solids and liquids are compressible, just not as much as gasses so high school physics will usually assume them to be incomprehensible to make math easier. In the case of nuclear bombs there is a whole lot more going on involving relativity. The atoms inside the uranium essentially lose cohesion and turn into a liquid of sorts. If you are truly interested I am happy to explain, it will just take a long time.

comment If space and time are woven into one fabric do I still exist yesterday?
@JahanClaes I think he/she is talking about the particular makeup of quarks and lepton that make up his/her body.

comment Is there a proof that space expanding produces observers at all points that see what we see?
4 dimensions? What are you assuming is the 4th dimension?

comment Is it possible to completely void space, and if we can would photons travel at an infinite velocity?
I am just trying to get a better grasp on the topic. It's my lack of understanding that is the problem, and there's no reason that you should take offense at all.

comment Is it possible to completely void space, and if we can would photons travel at an infinite velocity?
I appreciate the thoughtful answer. But I think you are thinking of space conventionally, as a vacuum with particles scattered throughout it. My nobel prize winning professor explained that that is not actually the case, he explained that c is essentially set by "friction" from the sea of imaginary particles interacts with real photon.
