jfarkinB: If you'd followed the link, you still wouldn't have read much of a FA. Here, have a link that actually references the paper:

http://www.universetoday.com/96160/impossible-binary-star-systems-fo un d/

Both articles show the same unlikely artist's conception, with two sharply spherical red dwarves apparently separated by less than one diameter. If they're orbiting this closely, they'd look like eggs at least, and more likely like a single hourglass.

So the dipsh*t at Gawker posts a 10 line "story" that links to actual content, and that gets green lit on Fark.

Why the F are we paying you people? (comment not at Fark specifically, but at all "content generator" swine like Gawker who just leech others stuff and slap a label on it with 18 ad trackers and call it good)
