Black Hole Image Proves the Universe Is a Meme

The Russian internet was abuzz with awe as news that scientists had captured the very first image of a black hole made its rounds yesterday.

Five hundred million trillion kilometers away from earth, the black hole is said to be bigger than our entire solar system. That's big.

And where there is wonder, there are memes. Here are some of our favorites:

Plot twist: The entire universe lies in the eye of a bored bird. 

Life can be more exciting when you can't see right. 

What if within that black hole was another, and another, and another... 

When your life perspectives are as bleak as a giant black hole. 

Brace yourselves. 

Even God thinks your existence is a joke. 

Consider yourself warned: You've been noticed. 

We'll get better at this, for sure. 

That big donut in the sky. 

Press and hold to restart literally everything, ever. 

Oh, so that's where you left them. 

… we have a small favor to ask. As you may have heard, The Moscow Times, an independent news source for over 30 years, has been unjustly branded as a "foreign agent" by the Russian government. This blatant attempt to silence our voice is a direct assault on the integrity of journalism and the values we hold dear.

We, the journalists of The Moscow Times, refuse to be silenced. Our commitment to providing accurate and unbiased reporting on Russia remains unshaken. But we need your help to continue our critical mission.

Your support, no matter how small, makes a world of difference. If you can, please support us monthly starting from just $2. It's quick to set up, and you can be confident that you're making a significant impact every month by supporting open, independent journalism. Thank you.
