I found a big black rock and my sister told me it was dark matter, and was worth a lot of money. It's really heavy and will cost a lot to ship. So buyers will have to pay shipping too. Will consider any offers or trades. :D

Well... Since dark matter appears to be the shaper of galaxies, I would guess that would make it astronomy. :o

Well if it is making that sound, I'm thinking it might need oiling.

Don't good old-fashioned neutrinos count as a kind of WIMPs?

(Incidentally, even a jet-black rock should give off blackbody radiation, so it doesn't really count as "dark matter," does it?)

Nope. They're more like WIDNMPs (Weakly Interacting [Darn] Near Massless Particles)! :o
