    I would have said Milky Way, but didn't want to mislead anyone into thinking of the candy bar

    “Wow,” said David Spergel, an astrophysicist at Princeton who was not involved in the work.
    Has there ever been a better random quote in a news article?


    You can spend a lot of time and money picking out the perfect floral bouquet for your date ... but you're probably better off checking if you have bad breath and taking the porn out of the glove compartment.

    The moral: you gain more by not being stupid, than you do by being smart. Smart gets neutralized by other smart people. Stupid does not.

    “Dark matter has been there billions of years,” Dr. Finkbeiner explained. “If something has been going on for billions of years, you wouldn’t expect a sharp edge.”
    I vouch for that.

    Old Champagne bubbles anyone?
