So he plays using "automatic" skill. Every target shooter knows that place. Every cook flipping an egg knows that place. Hell, everybody knows that place. When you're first learning to drive, making a left-hand turn or backing out of a parking place requires lots of thought about HOW to do it. After long practice, you don't think about it, you simply do it. The trick, in soccer, or shooting, or writing code, anything that requires sustained performance, is to stay in that place.

Black holes and neutron stars are both examples of stellar remnants, where fusion has stopped, so they're not emitting nearly as much energy as previously, just residual effects of temperature, magnetism and gravity. In the case of black holes, we've been assuming that the radius had collapsed to the point where the escape velocity was greater than the speed of light, hence, "black". Even if that isn't the case, they're not necessarily going to be easy to spot.

And then people are SURPRISED when it follows the example of the Gestapo and the KGB.

APL hackers do it in the quad.
