Geezer, I was under the impression that "shouting" in a message usually involves capital letters. Meanwhile, italics is normally used to stress some part of a sentence, but with so many different fonts out there, it can be difficult sometimes to notice that some part of some text has been italicised. So I like to add bolding to make sure it stands out. My main beef with Farsight is not so much that there are problems with some of his ideas, so much as he appears to completely ignore any data that exposes those problems with his ideas.
...the rule of thumb is that the more mismatched the masses are, the more energy goes into the smaller mass.Agreed, so long as we are talking only about the initial injection of kinetic energy into a system. This has nothing to do with the process that converts kinetic energy, in a system, into potential energy, due to the influence of Gravitation or some other Natural Force. And it is that conversion process, consistently for at least three of the four known Natural Forces (the Weak Force does not appear to either attract or repel), which can maintain mass ratios of the interacting bodies in the system.
