SO YOU'RE LISTENING to the hit parade on the radio and bustin’ some moves on the rug-clad dance floor of your sitting room.
A quick glance at your reflection in the glass of your patio doors confirms the true extent of your awesomeness, so, overcome with exuberance, you perform a spectacular pirouette (or whatever the cool kids call them).
Unfortunately, the surprisingly high frictional coefficient between your ‘Totes Toastie’ socks and the rug causes it to gather up beneath your feet and, before you know it, you have a rug wrapped around your leg. Everything that was on the rug is likewise dragged violently inwards and half a sitting room’s worth of remote controls, discarded socks and one confused cat is hurled towards you. Yup, sometimes spinning sucks.
But if you think that cat has it bad, spare a thought for anything unfortunate enough to be too close to a black hole when one of these cosmic Travoltas does the Twist. Because, instead of messing up a mere woven floor covering, a black hole drags the very fabric of the Universe along with and you can imagine what that does to anything unfortunate enough to be occupying that particular region of the spacetime rug.
