Have to disagree with you regarding gamer keyboards - standard generic versions do not come with led lights, macro keys, windows key lock, and the ability to handle a zillion keys pressed at the same time (Logitech G15). That last point is important - I've had keyboards that didn't handle 3 key combinations correctly.

From the wikipeida article: "If one accumulates matter at normal density (1 g/cm3, for example, the density of water) up to about 150,000,000 times the mass of the Sun, such an accumulation will fall inside its own Schwarzschild radius and thus it would be a supermassive black hole of 150,000,000 solar masses." Quite fat, that momma.

The reason that every major university maintains a department of mathematics is that it's cheaper than institutionalizing all those people.
