    Strangelets do not "convert" black holes, instead black holes "black" the strangelets.

    That’s kind of cool, if the neutrons win, they become something that’s alarmist a black hole, but if gravity wins, let’s say it won’t end well

    This feels a bit like when I played war games at home with my brothers. Socks were grenades. throws a grenade up the stairs "Forcefield!" they yell.Every time there's something new, someone makes something else up to counter it.
