10th grade report on black holes. 10 pages, masterpiece.
My report was in JANUARY 1988.
Hawking’s book was first PUBLISHED
March 1, 1988
and my library didn’t get it ’til summertime ’88, long after I was done.
Turned my bed into a 1 square acre EVENT horizon, past which my cat, which was getting sucked into the back hole would *poof*, disappear from sight.
