...Make that 1,002 uses...

You might have seen a story in Wired about cosmologist Steven Hawking formally conceding a bet he had made with a colleague having to do with black holes. Hawking believed that all matter drawn into a black hole was permanently destroyed while American physicist John Preskill disagreed.

Now we can see this concept in action with Doom Funnel Chasers. The object is to fling a ball of duct tape into the black hole to plug it up. Some pretty cool physics going on here in the later levels where you have orbiting planets, and can use their gravitational pull to slingshot all over the screen.
