Halfway down the first page on any board, there is a heater. When a listing reaches that point, it gets sent to the top, only to work its way down. Eventually it will be falling too fast for the heater to lift it up, and it ends up in the back.

No, I think each person comes with their own heater.

Note how having too many heaters going chaotically can allow some threads to fall through the cracks.

Also, the more people there are here, the faster things fall. This must mean that we are fluidizing agents.

Also, I really love this WMG.

Perhaps there is some Brownian motion involved?

So is this space infinite in two dimensions (length and width) or are there boundary layers somewhere?

Judging from the Fetishes IJBM...
Ruining everything forever.
That thread's fluidic profile is very large for its mass, making it extremely buoyant.

Hmmmm, maybe it is more like a geologic process:

Threads at the top stay at the top, because they are less dense than those below them, but the ones below are more fluid. With enough force they slide to the top through fault lines and such. The ones at the bottom are much warmer, but are compressed into a non-fluid state by the weight of all those above.

OOPS DOUBLE POST.

You want me to believe that microscopic iron particles are also carried in this current?

Well, the electrons carried in the thread could be ferric in nature.

Time to turn the heater on beneath this thread.

Anyone up for re-heating this baby?

Oh yeah. Was thinking of doing that myself.

So the real question is, what will happen to all of the pressure built up in IJBM with it gone?

Some of it will escape, some of it will build up as heat, some of it will be expressed in kinetic energy as friction.

friction

The good kind.
But soft! What rock through yonder window breaks? It is a brick! And Juliet is out cold.
The system doesn't know you right now, so no post button for you.
You need to Get Known to get one of those.
