Better WIMPs than MACHOs

MACHOs (MAssive Cold Halo Objects) are another proposed source of dark matter: orphan planets and other regular material that is simply too cold to see easily. Being hit by an orphan planet would be a once in a lifetime experience.

Therefore: as below, so above: Being hit by a macho is worse than being hit by a wimp.
