    What if you where to make a perfect black box inside a glass cube to which light radiation could get in but the physical heat radiation could not escape? Would you then have a long lasting heat source or a null experiment having the glas ask as a mirror.

    Apparently, you need to take ten minutes to tell me you're wasting my time. It would have been a mildly interesting experiment if you'd explained it from the start, but if this is in anyway indicative of your channel's attitude, I see absolutely no reason to come back in future.
