This Can't Be Good

Oh Great....

Astronomers have stumbled upon a tremendous hole in the universe. That's got them scratching their heads about what's just not there. The cosmic blank spot has no stray stars, no galaxies, no sucking black holes, not even mysterious dark matter. It is 1 billion light years across of nothing. That's an expanse of nearly 6 billion trillion miles of emptiness, a University of Minnesota team announced Thursday.


A hole in the universe? Can this be a good thing? Then again, maybe THAT'S where my curriculum notebook went...I can't for the life of me figure out where I stashed it in June...

6 billion trillion miles of emptiness. Kinda puts that blank in the lesson plans into perspective, though, doesn't it?

Hole in the universe or not, I'd still be freaking out about a missing curriculum notebook.

thank goodness, it's found. Now I have to actually start using it. :)
