    It is incredibly impressive they were able to get that picture and crazy it took ten years to get it. The picture itself is underwhelming, though. I’m not sure what I expected, but I wasn’t blown away by it.

    That, my friends, is nothing more than an out of focus photo of a Krispy Kreme donut.

    Technically, it's a picture of stuff around a black hole.

    As a Krispy Kreme connoisseur, I must agree. Was this published on April fools day? :scratch

    Looks suspiciously like someone smoking a cigarette - at night - in the desert.

    I would have expected an image like this but remember how big the "object" really is.
