I'm not sure what Joe Soap can glean from watching this?

Definitely NOT BU! Waiting for father Ted to say big hole far away... "No sorry, Ted, I still don't get it!" ..🤔

YANBU... spacey stuff tends to fill me with existential dread.

CaptainMyCaptain Wed 10-Apr-19 20:02:18

I'm not interested either.

Im sure xfactor or corrie is on the other channel for your level of intellectual curiosity

SoyDora Wed 10-Apr-19 20:05:11

Change channel?

I think it's all made up. They just try to blind us with theoretical maths and expect us to believe them- or be interested!!!!

HellonHeels Wed 10-Apr-19 20:20:36

Do you also think the earth is flat.

Scottishgirl85 Wed 10-Apr-19 20:22:54

I'm a science geek and find it utterly fascinating, and struggle to understand how anyone couldn't. But just change the channel.

Well I think it is amazing what they've managed to do. So refreshing after my faith in humanity has been severely dented of late.

Please don’t breed.

I once lost the remote too and couldn't change the channel. I feel for you OP.

A newspaper article with a photo of it just came up on my news feed. Lots of 'shock' comments underneath.

It's literally a picture of a hole confused I really don't get the fascination.

YABU. I love black holes! I’m not a scientist but think they’re really interesting. Plus, it’s really quite rare that there’s something like that on the news so I find it really refreshing.

Saucery Wed 10-Apr-19 20:27:23

They don’t care if they fascinate you or not. They will still tear you apart.

ScreamingValenta Wed 10-Apr-19 20:27:58

Each to their own, but I find this amazing. It's three million times the size of earth! Mind-blowing.

It’s literally not.

OneKeyAtATime Wed 10-Apr-19 20:28:45

The whole thing is mind-blowing! Seriously read about it and what it means and you will find it interesting. It's not just a 'hole'

ScreamingValenta Wed 10-Apr-19 20:29:19

... for those who are interested, there's a documentary on BBC4 at 9 o'clock.

HoppyHop Wed 10-Apr-19 20:32:17

YANBU-the subject of space and any photos of black holes/planets/looking at stars makes me feel all unsettled and nervy.

Mrsong Wed 10-Apr-19 20:33:09

So what is a black hole?

ArabellaDoreenFig Wed 10-Apr-19 20:33:30

I’m fascinated by it, whatever your views are on life, and faith, and the universe we inhabit we are all undoubtedly connected to the universe - in our very atoms and energy.

TheRollingCrone Wed 10-Apr-19 20:35:24

Normal rules of physics don't exist inside of black holes! What? And if you try to get into one you'd get spaghettified and end up one long string of atoms...
My brain is blown -(a small pop) . I have to agree with the scientist who said it looked look a gateway to hell.

Are we getting suckered in slowly?

confused It's literally not just a hole. What is there to not understand about it. It's fascinating.

Tawdrylocalbrouhaha Wed 10-Apr-19 20:38:06

Black holes bore me. Space bores me. When that English guy went into space and we got updates every 5 minutes (more if he blinked or something), that especially bored me.

But it's one of those things you can't say out loud without being labelled a halfwit who is blind to the majesty of the universe.

You are not alone, OP.
