God- “Hey, it’s a work in progress. It took me a week to get the Earth done. One planet- you think the rest of the whole f***in’ universe is easy? I give you people life, I make the whole universe in my spare time and you cheeky little shits have the sheer audacity to BITCH about the bit I’ve left to the end?”

After all these years with black holes finally a blank spot.

In ST Voyager they crossed something like that.
So it was predictable.

Holes in the universe probably occur when the gravity from areas with bigger mass pull matter from less dense areas, Tully said. After 13 billion years “they are losing out in the battle to where there are larger concentrations of matter,” he said.

Retired NASA astronomer Steve Maran said of the discovery: “This is incredibly important for something where there is nothing to it.”

‘BlankMatter’ ???  a little like dropping oil onto water?  I guess the explanation above is logical though.  I suspect that most of the universe is just a very large blank void….well for the moment.  When humans learn how to safely travel throughout it though, that’ll all change, believe me.

Yes, with the inter-space equivalent of coffee cups, cigarette butts and candy-bar wrappers.

Of course, then they’ll just start an “adopt a blank matter spot” program and you’ll see big neon signs like “This Trillion Square Miles adopted by People For the September 12th Theory” and the like. LOL

Please no.  I would hate the thought of anything September 12th would adopt.  The place would be littered with signs advertising the start of the next intergalactic war.    Updated every year of course when the deadline passed and they had to get a new date from their emptiness.

Before you criticize someone, you should walk a mile in their shoes. That way, when you criticize them, you’re a mile away and you have their shoes.

When life hands you lemons make apple juice. Then laugh while life tries to figure out how you did it.

I bet it’s God’s Ranch.  Since God, and all of His attendants, are immaterial this makes perfect sense.  And since you can’t disprove It I win automatically.

I wonder if He calls It the Ponderosa.  That would be so cool.

There are patches in the sky

Smerk the cutest dragon
Lived by the sea
And frolicked in the autumn mist
In Western Australi

Little Accipiter loved that girl enough
He told her jokes and crazy facts
And other forum stuff

Smerk the cutest dragon:
Traveled cross the sea,
To hunt her prey in foriegn lands,
And snuggle with Acci!

Smerk the cutest dragon
Is getting married now they say
Though little Accipiter
Has yet to name the day.

There are patches in the sky

And if they correspond with patches in the very fabric of the universe. .  . . I wonder if they’re iron-ons.

Edit:  It’s just as well because Fox News nearly always keeps me in stitches.
