A ball of hot and compact magnetized plasma held in equilibrium against its self-gravity by radiation pressure rather than gas pressure. A MECO is so extremely
compact that its own radiation quanta move in almost closed
orbits due to self-gravity. Therefore, though the MECO
is extremely hot and luminous to a local observer it
appears as almost ``Black'' to astronomers. According to
Abhas Mitra, an Indian astrophysicist, and several other astrophysicists, the so-called ``Black Hole Candidates'' are actually MECOs rather than true Black Holes.
The massive ``Black Hole Candidate'' Sgr A* at the center
of Milkyway galaxy is likely to be a magnetospheric eternally collapsing object (MECO).

Condition which causes you to place an Amazon order, then shortly after remember something else you needed and place another order.
Wow, 10 Amazon boxes showed up on my door today. My Amazheimer's must be acting up again.

Person 1: Bro, your Amazheimer's is getting out of control.
Person 2: It's OK, I have Prime.
