Dark Matter Detected?

A team of Italian and Chinese physicists have detected a seasonal variation in an underground detector experiment that may indicate that dark matter is interacting with the experiment. The number of events they get is higher in June, when the orbit of the Earth coincides with the proper motion of the solar system through the galaxy.

Of course, given the quality of the presidential campaign, there's already plenty of dark matter being flung through the air, and very little proper motion.
