So say you hit the ball of energy with a graviton and a photon. And it caused it all to explode? wouldnt that create a big explosion?

Seriously, shut the fuck up right now. Your idiocy is starting to piss me off. You expect us to waste our time filling in what are obviously enormous gaps in your scientific knowledge? Gee, why don't you just ask for free fucking tutoring of all the science between grades 5 and 12?

Not too surprising, but I'm sure there are plenty of people in Missouri who are much smarter than this kid.

He's probably a kiddie. I could certainly see my ten-year-old self saying something like this, because at that age I didn't know the difference between knowing of things and actually knowing them - see his link to a Wikipedia article about quasars.

Alternatively, he's a troll, but that's always a possibility.

If he's a ten year old, he shouldn't be signed up here. We have a minimum age of 13.

But come on - he seriously asked what would happen if you combined a graviton and a photon. You've got to pay that. :)

My brain feels like it's bleeding as I try and comprehend that.

(Of course, technically, I know the answer, if we use the 'Gravitons as connectors' idea: The photon rides the gravitational curve in accordance with, oh, basic physics.)

Jesus, reading this guy's posts is just embarrassing. You don't have to even have to be scientifically knowledgable to see the bullshit, with this guy tagging the word "Super" on to everything.

Look kid, it's alright if you don't know as much about science as some of the other people here. Most people don't. But please, don't ever fucking talk about things that you have no understanding of. Even if you never pick up an actual science book, you would do better to just keep your mouth shut about these things.

We don't, unless you mean 13. There was one, 'Jazz Intern', who turned out to be like 12 IIRC. He kinda dropped off the face of the board though...

Come on, you guys. Everyone knows that using the inverted linear coefficient formula you could use two particle accelerators (preferably one in Mexico City and another located in Ulan Bator) to collide a graviton and a photon, which will not just release super amount of energy but alter the value of pi within 218 kilometers of the collision to 3.17734. This is of course nothing when super compared to a super collision between a super graviton and a super horseradish.

Ok, my knowledge on particle physics is like next to nothing, but how could a graviton and photon possibly "combine"? Neither has any mass to combine. The other thing is since they both are thought to mediate the behaviour of different fundamental forces which don't interact since the very early stages post the big bang, so I am not sure how there would be a reaction.

Perhaps someone more knowledgeable can explain what else is wrong with his question. And yes I also had the temptation to answer sarcastically using words such as subspace or quantum in the explanation, but I thought I might learn a bit more if I just posted what I thought was wrong with the question.

The very existence of gravitons is still under debate, as far as I know. Unless there's been some new papers verifying them in the last few years I'm completely unaware of. Oh, and Ryker's mom isn't putting out nearly enough. That's another problem with his question.
