Makes you feel so... sort of insignificant, doesn't it?

You do the hokey pokey and you turn yourself about ...


I love that song. It's brilliant. I thought of protecting my liver immediately when I saw the topic.

Phaf. This science stuff is just a theory, you know. The FSM has a great noodely plan for all us.

No one escapes the sauce of destiny.

In one of Carl Sagan's book is this picture (taken by Voyager) and quote:

Look again at that dot. That's here. That's home, That's us. On it everyone you love, everyone you know, everyone you ever heard of, every human being who ever was, lived out their lives. The aggregate of our joy and suffering, thousands of confident religions, ideologies, and economic doctrines, every hunter and forager, every hero and coward, every creator and destroyer of civilization, every king and peasant, every young couple in love, every mother and father, hopeful child, inventor and explorer, every teacher of morals, every corrupt politician, every 'superstar,' every 'supreme leader,' every saint and sinner in the history of our species lived there-on a mote of dust suspended in a sunbeam. ... There is perhaps no better demonstration of the folly of human conceits than this distant image of our tiny world. To me, it underscores our responsibility to deal more kindly with one another, and to preserve and cherish the pale blue dot, the only home we've ever known.
