What Happens In Outer Space...

A black hole committed an "act of galactic violence" against a galaxy 6-something sextillion miles away from our galaxy. For some reason this is the most-viewed story on the Washington Post. You know how many is in a "sextillion"? I didn't either, until I had to figure out how to translate a billion light years into Jezebel's English. No seriously, I find "black holes" interesting too, but mainly for the purpose of hyperbole, because seriously, if you get too close to one you're sucked, if it hurls out its radioactive matter in your direction you're fucked, but it's the study of obscure shit like this that we have to thank for the atomic bomb. And also, Diaper Lady. [Wash Post]
