I'm not sure I ever want to quit my job or move because a <5 minute commute is amazing.

Depends how you define 'weapon of mass destruction'. The US definition is so broad that the rocket used to launch the space shuttle is a weapon of mass destruction:
18 USC § 2332a - Use of weapons of mass destruction
(2) the term “weapon of mass destruction” means—
(A) any destructive device as defined in section 921 of this title;

18 USC § 921 - Definitions
(4) The term “destructive device” means—
(A) any explosive, incendiary, or poison gas—
(i) bomb,
(ii) grenade,
(iii) rocket having a propellant charge of more than four ounces,
(iv) missile having an explosive or incendiary charge of more than one-quarter ounce,
(v) mine, or
(vi) device similar to any of the devices described in the preceding clauses;


So the US did find weapons of mass destruction in Iraq, I'm sure they're so happy.

While an antimatter weapon is indeed a weapon of mass destruction, I fail to see how the wormhole star thing is. Indeed, by removing matter from the fusion process at the core of a star, it in fact prevents some mass from being destroyed.

Does it depend on how close to the core? ie. does the gravitational attraction override the radiative pressure = does the wormhole suck or blow?

I expect there is a limiting radius with the name of some dead astrophysicist attached, of which my inability to recall goes some way to explain my 2:2 in my first degree.

Well I did specify the core of the star, where the heat and pressure is greatest and there's no net gravitational force. Unless there's something I'm missing, it should extrude the star's guts through the wormhole and cause a good deal of grief at the other end. So I say the wormhole blows.

This of course assumes the wormhole itself exerts no gravitational influence, which may be a bad assumption sincetthey're made out of spacetime curvature.

I don't know about overriding the need for flea powder though. I think that subject must be worth a PhD paper in its own right.

Fortunately for you, plasma at 16 million Kelvin is known to kill fleas. However, further testing has identified potential side effects including vaporisation of the patient and testing facility, planetwide annihilation of the biosphere down to the mantle, and increased risk of sunburn.

Suppose you place the wormhole exit right above the star.

If the matter flys out at a high speed, we have a violation of conservation of energy, as it falls towards the star gaining energy, then is replaced by more matter in the core of the star.

In effect, the gravitational potential well at each end of the wormhole needs to be "the same" to avoid really trivial conservation of energy violations. There are other problems (like the one about the vacuum itself between the worm hole entrance and exit basically diverging).

Couldn't you fix that just by saying that opening the wormhole requires a huge amount of energy, equal to the disparity in the conservation of energy calculation?

Sometimes I think it would just be best if I learnt to tailor my own clothes. I swear nothing ever seems to be the right fit.
Would be pretty cool if a website and manufacturing process was developed to take a persons measurements, style of material, and automatically fabricate a shirt with the dimensions scaled to fit with basic adjustments like tight to loose based on some fancy algorithms.
All you'd need is a well described guide to measuring and you practically have tailored clothes in your size. Per item would be expensive and can't really be refundable though, but return customers will be high if you get the end results good. Personalizations in measurements could be done to future orders if it's not exactly how they like it.

...or I guess I could just look around at more clothes. Meh, I hate shopping for clothes.

It would have to be an energy expenditure every time an object goes through it, greater than or equal to the potential energy gained. Just making it a high initial expenditure of energy, you could still get a net gain in energy just by shoving more mass through.

Energy conservation isn't the only thing potentially violated by wormholes. If you can move one of the ends, you can get causality violations too.

I frequently browse shitty internet communities to feel better about myself, and noticed something: while misogynists include stupidity in their depictions of women, "men are dumb" is strangely absent from misandrist discourse.

At a guess, it's because the misogynists are mostly saying "you should feel superior to women" where the misandrists are mostly saying "you should feel afraid of men".

On that note, trying to figure out logical ends to engineering/design problems is a favourite thing of mine to do. It's annoying when people can't see how development time to end result trade-off can easily be in your favour. E.g. 20mins programming a script to save 10hours in total time over a given task. Sure, you may not be doing the task immediately, but it gets done faster and it can be reused in the future.

I own one of their suits. Very nice quality for the money, and it fits very well (somewhat surprisingly: when measuring myself I learned that the circumference of my waist and the circumference that all my other pants claim to be are very different things).

Related to the tattoo discussion:

Maybe some electronic ink technology could be adapted into tattoo usage? Another thing that comes to my mind is to use could somehow externally be caused to break up into some colorless (and harmless for humans) chemical, or something that body gets rid of automatically.
