    I've made a suggestion like this before. The LIGO results are wonderful, but the questions from "out there" sometimes display a level of understanding best dealt with the xkcd.com comic linked above. My opinion only.

    I've made this suggestion before. With regard to the sad (IMO) level of understanding I see in my "educated" coworkers about these kinds of topics, I would humbly suggest that this comic works well. Sigh.
    Too bad the investigators were not all named 'whatever Kardashian'. Then it would play a lot better -- out there somewhere on the internet.
