Can individuals be special

Can individuals be special kinds of black holes? There are two people I know who seem to have the peculiar trait of sucking the energy and life right out of any room they walk into or person they talk to. If one ventures too close there is a distinct danger of being sucked into a "personality void" from which escape is difficult or impossible. These "personality vampires" look no different in form from any other person, so I suspect they are either mutants or invaders from another dimension.

Any thoughts on the matter?

Umm, you're refering to an entire genetic strain of humanoid whose function is to be a super efficient energy sink. If you're a Deist then this must be regarded as the makers' last little act of amusing himself before walking away from the whole shebang. Myself I regard this simply as part of quantum chaos. Once identified (an easy task) these energy sinks are to be avoided at all cost. If you are a classroom teacher its best to get the energy sink (or sinks) seated in such a way as to surround them entirely by high level bipolar individuals and other particularly extreme manic types. /advice off

Jim, I think I have seen

Jim, I think I have seen several of these individuals. They tend to emit gravity waves too.;-)

Now Mike here's another (allegedly trick) question. Is Einstein gonna have an online store like SETI? I'd like to purchase my own fully portable black hole that I can use to clear out all the stalled traffic on the freeway ahead of me.

No black hole franchise yet. I'd have to talk to Bill Gates about that.....
Though I do have a spare Professor Peabody's WayBack Machine Version Five if anyone wants one. Then you can time tunnel as much traffic back to the Cretaceous as you want..... :-)
Upon reflection, in all likelihood, on balance, taking all things into consideration, with one thing or another and after careful thought then I'd say ...... not enough Fosters ..... :-)
Cheers, Mike.


Got any of these?

I've still got some old AD&D books and d"X" "bones" somewhere. Haven't played in years.

Chuck,
Hmmmm, "super efficient energy sink". Nice categorization. I'm no Deist myself, but I do believe that the Maker likes to have us prove our mettle with by casting some caltrops in our path now and then. Some of them seem to be rooted in cosmic-level jokes.

I disagree in that they are easy to spot. Some certainly are, but I've run afoul of them plenty of times in business meeting breaks, dinner parties and wedding receptions. Often, you do not have the opportunity to gauge group dynamics adequately so as to identify them. I find that it's quite like how scientists find hidden cosmic bodies such as black holes by observing the action of particles and other bodies swirling around, but not quite touching, the "object" to be discovered and then avoided.

I wholeheartedly agree with the placement of manic types in near proximity to energy vacuums. As a career sales and technology trainer and public speaker, I often use this technique when I create teams for role playing or other exercises. The look of despair on all parties faces is priceless to watch when I first pair them up, but the result is invariably educational for all.

Cheers -

Jim
