    Ringularity with 0 radius ..Does that even make sense??Now dont say;nothing makes sense at the center of a blackhole.It would be better to jst call it singularity.

    En este vídeo se os ha ido un poquito la pinza, lo de crear un espejo gigante ha sido lo más tronchante, el ser humano jugando a ser dios, lo curioso es que vosotros lo defendáis diciendo que no es ciencia ficción. FLIPAOS. Sin duda lo que hay dentro es un anillo de Sonic.

    A ring with a thickness of zero and no surface.... Doesn't that make it non-existent? I'm confused :(
