    Re: Scale of the Universe

    That is awesome. it is almost scary to think how small of a part we are of the universe.

    Maybe Horton Hears a Who is onto something.

    I like how they make sure to differentiate between a scrambled Rubik's cube and a solved one.

    Yes, that was a nice touch.

    I object to HOW they scrambled that Rubik's cube - it's impossible to scramble it they way they did without taking the stickers off, and it's unsolvable the way they have it shown (yellow and white are on the opposite sides of the cube, so it cannot share an edge).

    I'm not sure scary is the right word but it does make you realize how insignifigant we are.

    Scale of Universe- Interactive tool

    Had this sent on to me in an email from a buddy of mine. Just goes to show how small and insignificant we all are.

    Or that conference realignment is not huge in the scale of the universe.

    The drawing of the ant is awesome.


    While on live TV, Ford used a vulgar term to describe a private part of the female anatomy, adding that he was “happily married” and “got more than enough to eat at home.”

    I saw that, too, but figured that to some, it'll always be Sears Tower. Same with:
    • Skydome
    • Pluto (as a planet)
    • Anaheim Angels. Period.
    • Elwood Ave.

    Don't say that. It still is Elwood!
