Black Hole in a Wrapper

Just a hunch, but I have a feeling that the Snickers bar is the densest of all candies. When you select one from one of those spiral vending machines, the clang it makes when it drops to the bottom can be heard for the length of a football field.


"Hmmm... sounds like Staeger needed an afternoon pick-me-up."

A Snickers bar could stop a bullet if you let it. Teflon-jacketed, if it's King-Size.

I used to carry Snickers in my pockets when I went to bars. One good whack and you can shatter the dude's kneecap.

Not to be the science geek here, but shouldn't it be "Candy Wrapper Full of Dwarf Star Material?"

You're probably right; I thought there was something super-dense inside a black hole, like a pulsar or something. That's what I was going for.

Then again, I posted this after eight hours of looking at statistic after statistic for one small town after another, so I was a little loopy.

And Travis, that sounds like it really satisfies.
