@HG & @OO
I heard something... in stereo! (stereo!)

(get it? My wordplay of the day!)

I was about to agree, but then I thought: there's 3 ways to "store energy"
- mass
- heat
- kinetic

Doesn't the compression of the spring simply ADD kinetic energy? As @stk5m wisely points out: not one single atom of mass is gained... electron even!

The E=Mc^2 is a simplification which requires OTHER variables (like momentum for example, which is a form of... kinetic energy!) to be constant too. Or zero...

It was on IAB before!!! (lolz!)

How does the spring gain mass? It won't gain a single atom.

Jupiter would look that close for about 2 hours. The gravity of both planets would pull them together pretty fast.

A compressed spring may be 'denser' than an uncompressed one, but they weigh the same...

Actually, the compressed spring contains energy. That energy has an equivalent mass m = E/c^2, which is quite small but still greater than zero.

Spring:

E=MC2

A compressed spring contains more energy than an uncompressed one. To balance the equation mass must increase, although EXTREMELY little, because c is constant.

Weight is mass x gravity so a higher mass equals a higher weight.

No, I'm not looking it up! Lazybones...

@Tupinambis: make us realize how frakking huge it is, since it clearly covers almost a full half of the Earth's surface.

Really random, really useless. What was the point in mentioning the Pacific Ocean?
