    Koh Samui to Koh Phangan

    So this June I am staying a couple of nights in Koh Samui then 3 nights on Koh Phangan, the only way to get across is by a boat and i am starting to wonder about the fact that it is the wet season and weather we will actually get there or not.

    My questions are, will the boats still operate if the weather turns bad? Is it a good idea to still use the boat if the weather is bad? i know June is not the best time of the year to be on a boat in LOS.

    Weather isn't too bad on Samui in June, can be some heavy rain but mostly at night and even then not every day. Most rain storms pass very quickly at that time of year, and bright sunshine follows. I think you would be unlucky if it is so bad that the ferries don't run.

    And it was this month that central Chaweng was flooded and tourists confined to hotels with no electricity, it can happen any time of year on Samui!

    Gary, the weather will get there, guaranteed! Whether you do... up2u.
    (Sorry mate couldn't help myself)

    Weather in the Gulf can be unpredictable although storms pass quickly and seas abate almost as fast. You'll be right! Here's a few weather sites:

    Cool. I've been looking for you! 555

    Please explain this for me...

    E = mc2 ...where E is energy, m is mass, and c is the speed of light in a vacuum. The formula is dimensionally consistent and does not depend on any specific system of measurement units.

    So... what happens if the mass (m) is a black hole?
