Yeah, came across those videos a few months ago. the proportion of that star to even the sun is so large, they cannot visibly put those two side by side to get a real scope of the difference. When someone tried, the sun turned out to be just be a spec on the screen

It's nice here on our little dust mote.


Speaking of that, DID YOU KNOW:

The exact middle point between the Earth and a subatomic particle, in terms of size, is a mote of dust. A piece of debris so small it can be suspended in a mid-air colloid. That's halfway between the Earth, and a subatomic particle.

I like these two:

Feel small? Kinda puts stuff in perspective, like petty arguments and decisions. Basically, none of this matters. The universe does not care what job you have, what you do in your free time, or what you accomplish with your life. Fck worrying about sh!t, just be happy for yourself. Be nice to people, do what makes you happy, and respect what makes others happy.
