    Thanks n_FA. Pretty interesting. Maybe it is a good thing the MW doesn't have a mirror to look into.

    Well, you know what do to.... If the MW asks "Do I look fat in these spirals?" Say "No dear!" quickly and decisively.

    You know, I rather like that term, "dwarf galaxy." In a sense, it is like the opposite of "jumbo shrimp."
