    I don't know what DD's thoughts on the matter are......But I'm happy about it. The temperature around here goes from about the low 50's to mid- 70's every day! Perfect weather for ranch work.....



    Sun Up until Sun Down!
    I wish a bigger chunk of the Sun would bust off.....
    Then Maybe It Wouldn't Be A 115° Around Here In August and September......
    I Can Always Dream.....

    I Wish Half Of The Whole Damn Thing Would Disappear....
    There's Always Hope....

    No, seriously, I didn't know this happened, that is actually pretty frightening. I've always been fascinated by the Sun, a little over 10,000 degrees on the surface, about 27 million degrees in the core, it's just mind boggling how hot it is. I was watching a documentary the other night about the death of the sun, how in billions of years it will swell into a red giant and consume the Earth. Anyway, the documentary shows what would happen if that process started right now, while we are still here, and it was scary to see what will happen to the Earth, temperatures hot enough to melt Stonehenge like it's nothing. The sun is a very volatile place, with storms and explosions we can't begin to imagine, this story is a prime example of that.

    I love space, it's a fascinating place, I was watching a documentary last night about exoplanets, and it's mind bogging how many exoplanets there are in our galaxy alone that are almost Earth-like that orbit their star in the habitable zone. Now, scientists have estimated that there are between 100 and 200 billion galaxies in the universe, which means there has got to be life out there somewhere, but the problem is that it's too far for us to see the surface of these planets up close. But I guarantee you there's other planets just like Earth out there, probably a lot of them, where life has evolved just like us. They can see some of the exoplanets in our galaxy close enough to make an educated guess of what the surface might look like, but we can't see anything in the other 100-200 billion galaxies, they're simply too many light years away.

    In our galaxy alone, there are an estimated 100 billion exoplanets. Now, there are an estimated 100-200 billion galaxies in the universe, yeah, there's life out somewhere.

    the most incomprehensible statistic i have ever heard is that there are roughly 10,000 stars for each grain of sand on earth

    go for a walk on a beach, pick up a handful of sand and think about that

    Yes, exactly, and there has to be planets out there that orbit their star in the habitable zone just like Earth orbits it's star, where life has developed just like we did. I'm willing to bet the farm on it, but it's extremely difficult to find them because they're so far away.

    i'm not sure whether to laugh at that or gouge my eyes out

    i may try both simultaneously

    Whatever will be will be! I have lived my lie and have found the golden years suck anyway so will not be concerned.

    Clearly we need to send these guys up there...

    I guarantee if any of them come back they'll probably be as bald as Bruce by then. 👨‍🦲

    It's something the human mind can't even comprehend on any level.

    Jaw dropping just to try and wrap your head around it
