    “weighting both galaxies simultaneously proved to be extremely challenging”

    I guess – and trying to fit them on either side of Libra didn’t work out as well as planned 😉

    Should have been obvious, though. Everyone knows that Milky Way is “The sweet you can eat between meals”

    The Milky Weigh? I’ll get my coat…..

    No, the MIlky Way is not on a diet, its increasing its cardiovascular activity as it accelerates away from other galaxy clusters, shedding the body fat and looking lean and sexy 🙂

     

    I’ll go get my coat too…wait for me Andy!
