How Insignificant Are We....

as individuals when you consider that our galaxy, the Milky Way, is @28,000 light years thick and @128,000 light years in diameter.

A light year is the distance light will travel in a year at the speed of 186,300 miles a second. Now that's a fur piece!

Our galaxy, relative to the imagined size of the universe, is smaller than a grain of sand in the Sahara Desert and our solar system, relative to the galaxy, is smaller than that. And our Earth, well, not even a contest!

Now for the fun part! Donna and I will go to Dairyville today to a jam session. Dairyville is about eight miles away so, at the rate of 186,300 miles per second, how much of our galaxy will it take us if we go the speed of light? 'oops'...I accidently blinked my eyes and am already back! Shucks...now I gotta go back again!

Now for the spooky part. The Earth is smaller than the grain of sand in the Sahara compared with the solar system; the solar system, smaller compared with the galaxy and the galaxy; well, no one can even imagine the size of the universe so where does that take us with the galaxy!

'whooooaaaahhhhhh'...Compared with the city of Red Bluff, I am the size of a pimple on the ass of an elephant; so how big am I compared with the universe?

AS BIG AS I WISH TO BE! THE BIGGEST AND MOST IMPORTANT OBJECT IN THE UNIVERSE!...

Now that is spooky!
No wonder there is so much trouble with some people!

Now, we're goin' Jammin'!
Later...

Just as I thought, it's all about you!

Luckily, the world and universe is big enough for both of us.
