Excuse Me but There’s a Hole in Your Universe

The universe is one great big puzzle, and we’re missing some of the pieces.  Scientists announced their recent discovery of nothing.  A whole lot of it:

“Astronomers have stumbled upon a tremendous hole in the universe. That’s got them scratching their heads about what’s just not there. The cosmic blank spot has no stray stars, no galaxies, no sucking black holes, not even mysterious dark matter. It is 1 billion light years across of nothing. That’s an expanse of nearly 6 billion trillion miles of emptiness…”

And my favorite quote from the entire article:

“Astronomers have known for many years that there are patches in the universe where nobody’s home.”

It’s almost as if our universe is somebody’s abandoned project.  Perhaps some alien kid’s equivalent of a science fair entry that he never got around to finishing because he wanted to play with his little alien friends.  Anyway, that’s my theory for big empty expanses in space, and I’m sticking to it.
