Quick Translation : Huge Hole in the Universe Found


From Yahoo News:

The team at the University of Minnesota said the void is nearly a billion light-years across and they have no idea why it is there.

"Not only has no one ever found a void this big, but we never even expected to find one this size," said astronomy professor Lawrence Rudnick.

Writing in the Astrophysical Journal, Rudnick and colleagues Shea Brown and Liliya Williams said they were examining a cold spot using the Wilkinson Microwave Anisotropy Probe satellite, and found the giant hole.

Translation : Scientists study Lindsay Lohan's head.

While I would never defend Lindsay Lohan in any way.. are we sure it wasn't Michael or Dina Lohan? Honestly, couldn't it have been any one of them.. or even Britney Spears?

Oh I know.. there's not just one hole... ther eare apparently several.

Splantrik said...

Yes, I saw that paper. As usual, the news article inflates their claims. They didn't conclusively find the "huge hole" there; they just found a suggestion of it. But, it also happens to coincide with the location of another anomaly, as they said, the "cold spot" in the cosmic microwave background. It's not the only possible explanation of the cold spot, but it is actually one of the most plausible. So, it's an interesting finding, but it was overhyped.

I was unaware that Miss. Lohan had such a huge hole.

Well, you learn something new everyday.

Splantrik said...

Hmm, by the way, I'm a cosmologist, thus the air of authority.

Translator said...

Gerri - good point. There are more than one of these giant voids in the universe. One of the biggest is inside Lindsay Lohan's skull.

Splantrik - my head hurts.

My Lord - Yep. A big hole.

Burfica said...

well it could be Brittany Spears head as well. What a dumb ass.

I think there is a cold spot in my microwave - are you saying it was caused by Miss Lohans' big hole??
Some people have no respect for other people's things, do they? TSK

Rick said...

and it looked so much bigger on TV...

Geri said...

Translator... where are you? There is so much that I am just not understanding...

Alekx said...

hahahha I was going to say Paris Hilton's brain

Jaya said...

Yeah, echoing Geri's
question... Where the
heck are you, Translator???
We are wandering lost and
confused without your wise
guidance!!!

Gerri said...

Seriously Jaya! I hope Translator, Girl Translator and the mini-translators are all ok!

sfgirl said...

Great job of translating! LOL! You've been tagged (see my Saturday post at The Alien Next Door)...Looking forward to some translations...

Jaya said...

Translator???

H E L L O ???

If we leave out
a bowl of really
weird food, would
that entice you to
come back, and to
translate it for us?

I'm really starting to get worried about the Translator family. I emailed and have not gotten a response either. Are they lost in translation?

Lord Likely said...

Where is that fine fellow?

Gerri said...

I don't know. It's been over a month now and not a peep. I really miss the translations.

tom said...

Observers say that it may not have been just Lohan that was being viewed, apparently she was with Paris Hilton and Nicole Richie and the combination of the three caused a rift in the space time continuum !! I think this hole may have sucked up the translator!!

Jaya said...

Tom!! That is a terrible
possibility you suggest...
I hope that is not the
case.

But if it IS what happened,
what can we do? Could we
launch a search team into
the space time continuum
rift, to find Our Translator?

Any volunteers?? It could
be dangerous, but worth the
risk to get Our Translator
back again...

You had me at void...
