    Some of us nerds remember this from high school physics class. Absolute zero.

    School me on math, @YamahaRick , I found some snippets on the web to learn some more about Zero Kelvins.

    "What would happen at absolute zero?"

    At absolute zero, atoms would occupy the lowest energy state. At an infinite temperature, atoms would occupy all energy states. Negative temperatures then are the opposite of positive temperatures — atoms more likely occupy high-energy states than low-energy states.

    There's even this picture to illustrate what (the hell) that means... :whoosh:

    motion causes heat. Hot water gets energetic enough to boil off as steam when enough heat is added to the system. Take heat out of the system and water freezes because the molecules are moving slow enough to form crystals with each other. Take all the heat out of the system and nothing moves at the atomic level. That's absolute zero. Nothing natural can hit 0K. It's been done in labs though.

    If he wants to stop doing that silly shit, quickest way is to stop saying silly shit.

    I thought grannie removed his title (and his allowance) once he said he wasn't doing that silly shit.

    I just looked it up: it seems that there are no longer allowed to use the royal titles, but the Queen hasn't officially stripped them.

    I meant his official royal stuff. The only way to stop doing that is to do as he did and effectively quit or die. Doesn't change his title unless Grandma totally nukes him out of the family. What he says is a whole different thing :D

    His official name is Prince Harry, Duke of Sussex, so still a prince.

    What has been taken away is the suffix of his name “HRH”, which stands for His Royal Highness. It is kind of like DDS for dentists, MD for doctors, etc.

    And Prince Edmund Blackadder was Duke of Edinburgh*, having much the same effect...

    *Knowledge of 15th century English history makes this much funnier.
