comment How does a converging-diverging nozzle not violate conservation of energy?
What is the point of such nozzles if the pressure (and thus density?) decreases after acceleration, then? Isn't having dense air accelerate a little bit equivalent to having thin air accelerating a lot, in terms of thrust generation?

comment Can you find the length of a pencil without a ruler or clock?
@RobJeffries: The scale on the meter is shrunken too. I guess my question is actually "how to measure lengths when all the scales are shrunken in proportion"

@RobJeffries: Instruments etc are shrunken, but not atoms or cells etc. Basically, you are given objects built to be of different size, and drugged to perceive time differently, not put in a place where spacetime is shrunken. The "you are shrinked too" part is just to prevent cheating by using yourself as a ruler.

How can you use a force meter? Assume that the force meter is, too, shrinked in proportion.

comment Can you find the length of a pencil without a ruler or clock?
Can you give an example of how this works with actual numbers? Does this imply that if you were shrinked by a magical potion and placed in a miniature room, no time-altering potion could fool you into thinking you were in an unshrinked room?

comment Does spinning actually decrease the time experienced by the spinner?
But the decrease in momentum to the Earth is also utterly insignificant. Which of the two effect is more utterly insignificant?

comment What happens when two high-speed objects going opposite directions crash into a black hole?
Hmm. So since kinetic/whatever energy is not separable from the mass energy from the outside of the black hole, thus all that energy would by definition be part of the "mass" of the black hole?
