  • Neutron stars are the most awesome of stars. They are better than black holes because you can directly see them, while you can only see the effects of a black hole. Plus there are many awesome types of neutron stars. There are pulsars, a neutron star that converted the energy of the supernova that birth it into rotational energy, which are like lighthouses that give periodically flashes in the dark void of space. There magnetars, short lived states of neutron stars that only stay in this state for 10,000 years, that have magnetic fields so strong that they can distort the shape of atoms and they can release large burst of radiation when they have a starquake. They are awesome.

Knew this would be one of your polls. Let me think on this one.

Black holes are theoretical win for time travel. Theoretical like we have a REALLY well educated and mathed up guess on how to use one for that.

Nooo, I was writing a comment for my yes vote, then I accidentally refresh the page.

I think to keep our record clear of complete disagreement on each and every point, I must vote black hole.

Record unblemished that is.

Are you sure that we haven't voted the same on a poll?
TBR says2015-04-16T10:12:52.2893266-05:00
Its possible...

"gotta get that wormhole!" You don't need a black hole to get a wormhole, you could get also get a wormhole with neutron stars, white dwarfs, etc.
