If something has the smallest amount of a 'thing' in it, it no longer weighs 0 (insert preferred weight measurement here)

But that's just an observation.

:| Look, just put that number on a conveyor belt, strap ~10lbs of bulk beef to it and kick it into a SPIDERs web, will you? TPAD.

Look if you strap 10lbs of bulk beef on to the number it will never take off. :|
That is messing with the parameters of the test!

Might work if you move it to Boston first.

Are you suggesting that bulk beef migrates?

You guys inadvertantly got close to what inspired this. In the thread about the physicists breaking the speed of light, someone posted that photons have mass.

If a photon has 0.000...1 mass, and 0.000...1 = 0, then you could theoretically accellerate that amount of mass to the speed of light. If 0.000...1 != 0, then you can't.

IIANM, photons have relativistic mass, but have no rest mass.

It might....after it asks ATOT one last time.

There is no such thing as 0.000....1. You can't have something that comes after something that repeats infinitely.

That was me, and you are sorely mistaken if you think photons don't have mass. They don't have rest mass, which is the only stipulation on the "laws" governing the speed of light. Photons most certainly have mass, and they have it in the form of momentum and energy. Photons exert a force of the surface of the earth equivalent to 2 pounds per square mile.

I am very interested in your completely new number system. Can you add me to the newsletter?
