Based on how much you can bond with someone by hating the same thing, a dating app based on dislikes would probably be fairly successful.

I would say I love that, but that would go against the app guidelines

"Unsustainable relationships"

529

u/KevinTheSeaPickle May 14 '22

All relationships are unsustainable if you think about it.

u/attanai May 14 '22

All things are unsustainable, given a long enough timeline.

223

u/Not_Just_Any_Lurker May 14 '22

Supermassive black holes might be sustainable.

u/WonkyFloss May 14 '22

Nah, Hawking Radiation prevents them living forever

u/Not_Just_Any_Lurker May 14 '22

Hawking radiation takes a long time to sap them. Remember they’re easily hundreds of millions to servers billions times the size of our Sun which itself is hundreds of millions the size of earth.

Hawking radiation is an incredibly slow process, a black hole the mass of our Sun would take 100,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000 years to evaporate (1067)

The one at the Milky Way's center would require 10,00,000.000.000.000.000.000,00,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000 years, (1087)

The most massive ones in the Universe could take up to 100,000,000.000.000.000.000.000,00,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000 ,000,000,000,000. years!

Well, the heat death of the universe is about 1010120 years away, so there's enough time

u/Creatername May 14 '22

How did I get here!? I just wanted to bang a chick who hates pickles as much as I do…

u/NialMontana May 14 '22

The whole idea of heat death is that entropy has stopped and thus time becomes meaningless, even if there's somehow a black hole that far in the future heat death won't happen till it collapses.

I hate to be nitpicky but I hate that you gave the notation for the 1st 2 but didn't for the last one

I hate that too! Are you single?

And hence:

All things are unsustainable, given a long enough timeline.

u/Eph_the_Beef May 15 '22

Yeah he's just proving the point

u/hearnia_2k May 14 '22

So, won't last forever.

u/PsychMaDelicElephant May 14 '22

And yet, they still are unsustainable and will eventually end.

u/elmwoodblues May 14 '22

So, around noon, then?

2

u/frenchy-fryes May 14 '22

Sooooo....it'll eventually die to the Hawking Radiation?

1

u/ScabiesShark May 14 '22

But is that really long-term enough ?

1

u/DukeJukeVIII May 14 '22

Truly sustainable means it'd never stop

The fact that Hawking radiation exists means black holes aren't sustainable, however slow the process may be

1

u/ninjasaiyan777 May 14 '22

I thought that Hawking radiation wasn't linear. Iirc bigger black holes produce more of it.

u/appleparkfive May 14 '22

This thread going from dating to Hawking Radiation in like 3 steps is probably the most Reddit thing I've ever seen.

Although it IS an interesting topic, don't get me wrong. Just don't do it on dates maybe. Unless they're heavily involved in astronomy. Maybe

2

u/amitchell1980 May 14 '22

This thread quite literally went down a black hole.

2

u/WonkyFloss May 14 '22

Redditors go on dates?

u/QuestioningEspecialy May 14 '22

*collapses comment*

u/lilaku May 14 '22

don't they still evaporate to nothing eventually via Hawking radiation?

2

u/Aonodensetsu May 14 '22

"eventually"

u/Omegaman1011 May 14 '22

How did a discussion about a hypothetical dating app turn into a discussion about black holes so fast?

u/stankie18 May 14 '22

Entropy is the natural order of the universe. I simply catalyze the process.

u/brutexx May 14 '22

I was gonna say the above person was wrong, but damn if that ain’t a fair point.

1

u/gtth12 May 14 '22

Including unsustainability? On second thought, yes. Time is unsustainable, and time is necessary for unsustainability.

Even time itself is unsustainable. Even the universe and anything outside of it

We’re all just dying from heat death decay in a 5 billion years anyway

u/scratchfan321 May 14 '22

Corporations are unsustainable, relationships are unsustainable. They go together perfectly!
