    Super Heavyweight and Flyweight in a Cosmic Dance Volunteer distributed computing project Einstein@Home discovers neutron star in unusual binary system. After more than two decades, an international research team led by the Max Planck Institute for Gravitational Physics (Albert Einstein Institute; AEI) in Hannover has identified a Galactic “mystery source” of gamma rays: a heavy neutron star with a very low mass companion orbiting it.

    Oct. 22 (UPI) -- A visitor to New York's Metropolitan Museum of Art helped solve the mystery of a long-lost painting after recognizing a piece hanging in her neighbors' apartment. The museum said a visitor to the "Jacob Lawrence: The American Struggle" exhibition at the museum noticed the artworks resembled a painting she had seen in her neighbors' apartment, and her curiosity was piqued further when she read that five of the 30 panels examining early U.S. history were missing. The woman spoke to her neighbors, an elderly couple who had purchased the painting at a friend's Christmas charity art...

    What’s the first thing you do when meeting someone new? Exchange pronouns, of course, to make sure you refer to each other accurately. But what if you didn’t have to do that? Meet Earl Thornton. He has this amazing ability to guess people’s pronouns instantly -- just by looking at them. And he’s almost never wrong. “I don’t know, it just feels like I’ve always been able to do this,” said Thornton, who is very humble about his nearly supernatural ability. “I just look at somebody, and then before I can even think, I have their pronouns in my head.”

    MIAMI, FL—Many in the media are calling the Trump town hall Thursday a "super spreader" event. They are saying this because they are hacks who hate everything the president does, and also because he made out with every audience member. Every time he was asked a question, Trump stood up, walked over to the undecided voter, and gave him a long, passionate kiss. "I love America, and I love you," Trump said in response to a question one voter asked about his pandemic response. "Come over here, you big lovebug. Muah! That's it. Right on the ol' smackers! Give Daddy...

    WASHINGTON, D.C.—Joe Biden made a novel suggestion for cops and people who want to defend themselves against violent criminals: making them slip on a banana peel. "Look, Jack, if a criminal is running toward you, you don't have to shoot them," Biden said at last night's town hall on ABC. "All you have to do is pull out your trusty banana peel, throw it on the ground, and they'll slip. It's safe, humane, and hilarious." "Back in my day, cops didn't even have guns. They just dropped anvils on bad guys, littered rakes around them so they'd get smacked in...
