Giant Frickin' Outerspace Blobs -- DDG
— Ace

Oh man, Gene Roddenberry was right again.

An enormous amoeba-like structure 200 million light-years wide and made up of galaxies and large bubbles of gas is the largest known object in the universe, scientists say.

Oh it gets better ...

Some of the gas bubbles are up to 400,000 light years across, nearly twice the diameter of our neighboring Andromeda Galaxy. Scientists think they formed when massive stars born early in the history of the universe exploded as supernovas and blew out their surrounding gases. Another theory is that the bubbles are giant gas cocoons that will one day give birth to new galaxies.

Giant frickin' pregnant gas cocoons.

2 Giant frickin' pregnant gas cocoons.

Add swollen ankles, the constant urge to pee, and heaving breasts to that description and it pretty much covered how I felt during my nine month of pregnancy. Apparently those science type guys are right when they say nature, like my mom, repeats herself--over and freakin' over

3 If the blob has a uterus 4,000,000 light years across . We had better keep a close eye on where Dick Cheny is. Sounds alot like an evil Plot to impregnate giant space blobs thought up by Karl Rove to me.

6 I don't get it. An 'object' that includes gas clouds and galxies... wouldn't a bigger 'object' be the entire universe? If we are going to expand the definition of 'object' to mean 'groups of objects', I mean.

7 400,000 light years across is a pretty big gasbag. But, I'd want to measure Ted Kennedy just to be sure he doesn't have that beat.

No, wait. I really don't want to do that. In fact, I won't.

Where's an illegal immigrant when you need one?

8 Pablo beat me to it; "giant gas cocoon" is a perfect description of the senior senator from Massachusetts.

9 Some day we'll have scientists honest enough to admit "I don't know" when they are asked about new discoveries.

11 I bet they make great pets -- sort of like a low maintenance pet rock in the sky.
