You gotta love space. There is shit out there that we can't even fathom. Entire fucking galaxies collide turning planets and stars back in to dust. Things happen on a scale that almost defy logic. 186,000 miles per fucking second. Do that for a year, yes an entire fucking year and you have a light year. Our shithole, little meaningless galaxy is 100,000 light years across. We're part of a minor cluster of galaxies which is part of a major cluster which in turn is part of a super cluster which in turn is still only a small part of the known Universe. Your fucking life truly means nothing. Live it well though and don't be a douche.
