From the research paper preprint associated with this thread Mike started, there seem to be an awful lot of "dark" things going on. Here's the list of snippets I collected from the paper, just for fun. Has anyone encountered any other dark phrases in their travels?

Dark-crazed researchers said:

…and the dark halo of a galaxy cluster.
…dips and peaks within the dark core.
…trigger local dark collapse onto…
…gas may steepen the dark cusp further
…or low dark densities
…N-body methodology, extra dark physics, or some forms… (or is that extra dark physics? :)
…Mach number and the dark specific entropy. (admittedly probably just not hyphenated properly)
…reach from the dark surface to the origin.
…radius R and dark degrees of freedom F2.
…the dark mass is slightly more…
…occurring where the dark fringe drops.
…considered dark Bondi accretion onto stellar…
…feeds from a single dark gulp
…only limited by the mass of the dark spike.
…black holes can form rapidly and darkly. (Okay, that’s not dark-something, but it’s funny)
Dwarf halos might ablate at dark bow-shocks, or...
…self-bound, dark eddies that roll as they orbit…
…ruled by long-range dark forces
…possibility of local dark self-interactivity
…to constrain the dark freedom… (probably just short for dark degrees of freedom)
…set of equations for the dark dynamics and statics, one can…
…mechanism for dark growth of SMBH…

We are running out of words we can comfortably put after dark!

Galactic Poetry:

Retreating galaxies are red
Advancers are blue
Expansion's accelerating
And gettin' dark, too

Well, I guess this makes me a dark dork.

One of the guys in our office just shaved his head.  Doesn't look too bad.  Of course, we all had to tease him.  I wanted to come up with something original, so I told him I thought that he probably had some dark matter float over his head recently, and unbeknownst to him it had sucked the hair off his head.

Now, I work at a high-tech software development firm.  You'd think these people would be "with it" scientifically.  Well, I'm sorry to say that nobody had a clue.  They all looked at me like they were deer in headlights.

And no, I didn't bother explaining.  I told 'em all just to Google "Dark Matter."

Also, I finally figured out what keeps groups of nerds together at parties.

Dork Matter.

Stop hurting me! Ow, ow, ow!
