I never liked dark matter anyway

Some scientists at the University of Victoria have reworked the whole "Dark Matter" problem and have come to the conclusion that LARGE amounts of Dark Matter are not necessary to explain the speeds at which large galaxies rotate. It seems that Newtonian Physics work well on small scales like our solar system but break down in the presence of large amounts of rotating masses. The rules of Newtonian Physics are what created the need for dark matter in the first place. Using General Relativity the scientists where able to make the whole thing work out without the dark matter. I never liked dark matter anyway. It stains so easily, you wouldn't even believe how many shirts of mine it ruined.

Ha Ha! "In your face" and "I still suck" shouldn't be in the same post...
