Not Wrong...
...but fucking cool...

This image of the center of our galaxy was taken with the Spitzer Space Telescope. The region pictured here is immense, with a horizontal span of 890 light-years and a vertical span of 640 light-years. Earth is located 26,000 light-years away, out in one of the Milky Way's spiral arms. The plane of the Milky Way's flat disk is apparent as the main, horizontal band of clouds. The brightest white spot in the middle is the very center of the galaxy, which also marks the site of a supermassive black hole.

Here's a link to a larger version.

And here's a link to a 26MB full-resolution file from NASA's site.

REALLY lame ass joke....

The Lone Ranger comes into town during the hottest part of summer.

He stops outside a bar and tells Tonto to run in circles around Silver his horse, waving his poncho to keep a nice breeze on Silver while he goes in to drink.

A couple of minutes later a man dressed in black swaggers into the bar and says "You the Lone Ranger?"

"Yes, I am" the Lone Ranger replies.

"Oh," says the man dressed in black, "Did ya know ya left your injun runnin?"
