Negative matter has negative mass, and can be used to fuel time machines.
Antimatter still has positive mass.
True but it has no body mass.
Ha, this is brilliant. Excellent work.
I gotta say, I’m somewhat surprised that this graph is not inverted, with a yo mama joke at the end.
That makes two of us! =P
Oh, I’m not made of anti-matter. It’s just that my weight is… complex. Calm down!
In fact it’s rather a complex height that would give a negative BMI… A complex mass would yield a complex BMI…
Wonder how high your BMI have to be before you need to start worring about going supernova.
I agree, it is a misconception. Antimatter has positive mass.
Anti-matter doesn’t have negative mass. The term for that is exotic matter, which isn’t theoretically destructive.
It has yet to be shown if antimatter’s gravitational mass is positive or negative: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gravitational_interaction_of_antimatter
(scales measure gravitational mass, as opposed to inertial mass)
I love mass debating.
that, my good man, was pure genius
If your BMI is 0 you may not be a ghost, you may just be infinitesimally tall!
Well, technically you’d be √∞ units measurement tall, but that amounts to the same thing, right?
@Andy – don’t we all…
JR: ugh, you’re right. I just peeked at the BMI formula and misread “height”. My bad.
Yup. Anti-matter has positive mass. And only a 100 mile radius? The explosive energy, assuming the subject weighs a mere 60 kilograms, would be as much as 200,000 Hiroshima bombings. Not everything in a 100 mile radius, but everything on the ENTIRE PLANET would be severely endangered.
It would still have been 4000 times as weak as the Dinosaur-extinction meteor impact, though.
Your length could also simply be a complex number.
Let’s not ev en get started on weights coming in as imaginary numbers.
A gram of antimatter has a mass of 1 gram, not a mass of -1 gram, not a mass of i grams.
An anti-proton has the same mass as a proton.
For the record, I thought this comic was both hilarious and well executed.
This is why particles with negative masses are called “anorexions”.
Either that or you have imaginary height.
That top zone is mislabeled… It should read “Yo mamma!”
“Yo momma” always makes me think Yo-Yo Ma.
