    I can't remember the episode, but Teal'c says he knew a jaffa that did that, and his death was "most unpleasant".
    I have heard of a place where humans do battle in a ring of jello.

    I don't know if any one has said this before but how does the iris fit inside the gate (it looks too big).

    Sorry I know I just joined and my opinion might not be much. However I believe that because there is an Iris there it causes the instability of a newly activated wormhole to become stable or rather to be stable. If that makes sense to any of you. If there is something there to support the newly formed wormhole then there might not be any instability in the first place. I would think we would at least hear something if there was but I'm only talking about the SGC Iris so.

    Just like a Jaffa helmet collapses on itself.

    Quick question, What do you think would happen if you stuck both of your arms into the Event Horizon and moved them to about where they would meet and then pulled them out?

    Or if you stuck your head in,Would you be able to control your body?

    That's a good question I don't know maybe I would hope so at the very least.

    I dont get that part. Whenever the event horizon forms it disengrates everything in its path. I think that if a stargate really existed, burying it would not cuase it be blocked. In my opinion, the best way to shut down a stargate for good is to remove the gate control crystals. The crystals act like a particle analyzer. They recive data from the gate and analyze the incoming matter, telling the gate how to reasemble the matter. So if they are removed, the gate would not work.

    I haven't found this anywhere, please excuse me if it's there...

    what if you cross a stargate, with an outgoing wormhole from the wrong side (i.e. from the back to the front)? would you be transported just the same? would you be dissintegrated? would you just cross to the other side like there was no EH? would you hit like there was a solid wall?

    People need to start reading the whole thread... .
    Opinions are various since total desintegration to just being spit out in the same location unharmed.

    Has anyone ever done any calculations on how much power an intergalactic connection required?

    Well I think that if there's no room for the wormhole to be formed in the first place then it can't form at all so it can't vaparise anything. and is it not possible for it to just reasemble something wrong that way?
    I used to have a cool sig, but people replied to it more than they did my messages.

    Okay! See thank you I thought that was the way it worked but I couldn't remember anyone saying that! Good to know thank you!

    then why not just get rid of the vortex flux altogether? they couldve saved lives and technology (example: the prisoners on Hadante)

    whats not to say that the iris very thin. all it has to do is be close enough to stop the reintegration process.

    Lt-BG here!

    In my understanding of the Stargate physics and shows, the Iris, in earlier shows, was made of solid titanium. Then it got replaced my pure Naquada as the show progressed. I know its nothing near to an energy shield, but right then, it was the best they had.

    I guess you could call the incoming wormhole "matter", as it is coming OUT of the Event Horizon. If the Iris doesn't let matter form in the conventional way, then the incoming wormhole splash, would, technically, disintegrate itself. That's why it doesn't burn a hole through the Iris.

    Thanks,
    Lt-BG

    just gave me a brainwave. maybe thats why they didnt use the kawoosh of a gate to destroy bits of supergate to destroy it, the ori used shielding?
