Barycenters are the points between two objects orbiting each other. The center of mass between the two that a third object would center on. That's a gravity thing. The barycenter takes on the effect of a gravitational object. That spot is where the full force of the gravitational attraction meets and cancels the attraction between the two, but not to a third.
Of course there are more than two things out there.
Of course nothing sits still, so those don't, but they will take up a certain regional aspect if you take a snapshot.
Blackholes are the barycenter of a galaxy, or of galaxies. They will attract mass.
Funny how dealing with Topix atheist idiots can cause you to make connections.

It seems as though gay men wear women's clothes to stand out, to tell everyone "hey look at me, the gay guy. Aren't I incredible?"
.. why are you stereotyping? I think I already know the answer: women are suppose to be soft, right? And, according to RR, women are inferior to men, right? Most of the gay men I know are quite masculine ..
I've known only one gay guy that was masculine.

But the gays that you and I have known do not represent the whole.

Women are inferior to men in some regards, yes. In turn, men are inferior to women in some regards. This is basic nature.
.. you've claimed you want to learn. If so, tell me how you envision the role of a 'top'. Is that type of gay man still a sissy ??..
Hell yes!

He's sticking his schlong into a male butthole.

There's nothing homosexual about that, right?

Such an obsessive creature you are.

One more time, read further down the wiki page. I know that is a great mental effort for you, but take some vitamins and some deep breaths, you will get that far.

Swami Dave just did a divination on you.

An older man will give you a second glance. You will discover he has lots of money. You will start feeling love for that older man and want to get married.

How was that, guy? Getting excited?

As usual you have learned a few technical terms and then think you know what you are talking about!!!!!

1. "Black holes as concentrated gravity." No, they are the result of collapsed matter.

2. "Blackholes are the barycenter of a galaxy, or of galaxies." No, they are not the Barycenter of anything, they can occur anywhere in a galaxy whenever a 8+ solar mass star supernovas and certainly not between galaxies.

Look we all know you like to make a fool of yourself but please try to make an effort to understand what you are talking about.

The sad thing is the other godbots actually think you have a brain.

The space photos of "black holes" emitting jets of matter and energy would have told anyone they weren't as portrayed. Just a recycling event.
Dave, if you knew even a tiny fraction of what you think you know, you would know that the jets seen coming from black holes are actually being emitted by the spiraling matter falling into the black hole. The jets are not being emitted by the black hole itself.

You could learn a few things, but you have this attitude that you already know everything. As has been demonstrated over and over, you don't. But the attitude keeps you in ignorance.

More stereotyping, I see.

It is so much easier to beat up a straw man, isn't it RR?

And that last bit. There you have it. RR thinks it's icky, and therefore he thinks it should be banned.

RR, would you like to go back to the '50s when gay people were being thrown in jail? Or perhaps move to Russia so you can join the mobs beating up gay people?

What does anger me is the objection to adoption. That now crosses a line where children suffer for the sake of someone else's ideology who doesn't provide a solution for the problem they just caused .. I guarantee any kid stuck in one of the places doesn't give a rat's ass if their foster patents are gay. I would love to see the stays of what percentage of kids 'turned gay' because they were raised by gay foster parents. And if gay marriage makes it easier for them to adopt then I say great. It's odd how people that are apparently so concerned about what environment these kids grow up in supposedly don't seem to have a problem with them rotting in foster care
Well said. It's people that matter.

Tam, I do care about children. Even kids in other countries. I donated a sizeable amount to a school in Russia. So they could have new books and computers. I’ve never met these kids and I did it because I love kids.

God is my safety bubble sweetheart. Kids are very fragile beings and we as a society have to be careful with them.
