From Pinterest The Eridanus Void. This area shows almost no signs of cosmic matter, meaning no stars, planets, solar systems or clouds of cosmic dust. Researchers couldn't even find dark matter, which is invisible but measurable by its gravitational pull. There were also no signs of black holes that might have gobbled up the matter once present in the region.

I have a couple problems with that description.

1. You probably WON'T detect Dark Matter since we don't directly detect it to start with. We detect what is termed 'Dark Matter' by the interactions with the surrounding normal baryonic matter. If there really IS no baryonic matter in that void, then yeah, you won't detect Dark Matter.

2. If there were nothing in the void, then we should see the stars on the other side of the void, unless of course the view is blocked by dust, or dark matter. The chances of us just happening to see the void at the precise angle to have no stars behind it is pretty small.

"This Country is NOT going broke, and those evil CEOs are making 10s of MILLIONS!!!!"

Ummmm, we're $19 trillion in debt thanks to you and your fellow politicians and you're complaing about civilians making millions???

Not going broke??? We're FUCKING broke right now...

So..... the Russians stole and released DNC emails to embarrass the DNC..

...which would be pretty hard to do if they didn't do anything to be embarrassed about.

Or... let me put it this way... Shouldn't they be embarrassed by what they did to Sanders?

Reading a piece on the Block Universe idea, where the past, present, and future are illusions... and I wondered, well sure, I can see that that makes sense. If the future doesn't exist now along with the present then how does the future know what to do next?

Then I had the thought, as they make the point that teapots shatter but do not reassemble, eggs can be scrambled but do not unscramble, and this makes me wonder if it isn't the past that is "discarded," ie, so that there are only two illusionary states, the now, and the future, but neither remembers what anything was like before it's current condition.

Sanders today at the DNC, "Hillary Clinton will make an outstanding President."

Before:
http://www.cnn.com/2016/04/06/politics/bernie-sanders-hillary-clinton-qualified/

Weird, how politicians think what they say isn't recorded and available after a 2 second google search.
Bernie Sanders is standing by his criticism that Hillary Clinton isn't "qualified" to be president as the Democratic presidential candidates engage in an increasingly heated battle ahead of the New York primary.
