Quotation of the Day for January 5, 2010

"If you were to teleport Glenn Beck into deep space, then when his corpse cooled off to the temperature of ambient space (3 degrees Kelvin), he would no longer emit any kind of EM [electromagnetic] radiation and would be dark matter. It is unlikely that the dark matter is composed of corpses, but could it be small cold planets/rocks? No."

- "science", the nom de plume of a theoretical particle physicist, explaining the composition of dark matter to readers of The Daily Kos, a left-leaning political blog. [Glenn Beck is a right-wing commentator and broadcaster on the Fox News television network in the United States. -eds.]
