The blue whales max weight increasing

from 170 ton 1971 to 200 tons 2002.

18% increase in max weight in 31 years

0.58% increase per year.

195 lightyears away is its connected black hole, I get, after disscussion about how much more a 25 year old gains weight, since I weigh 130 kg.

In this rate, the blue whales black hole will intercept with our solarsystem in twice the time the blue whale doubles its weight.

in 344.8 years.

You have a right to worry.

Re: The blue whales max weight increasing

How did you arrive at the figure of 200 tons for the blue?


In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.

I agree with you regarding the satisfaction and importance of actually computing some numbers. I can't tell you how often I see time and money wasted because someone didn't bother to run the numbers.

That's where I got it. I'll be around waiting for some sort of response

I see, she was a big one. The blues do not hang together and are difficult to weigh and to catch. I do not think we will be able to put a fat meter on them.
