Kind of a Nice Little Perspective Video

Now estimated that there are 10 trillion galaxies in our universe.

A million seconds is 2 days, a trillion seconds is 32,678 years.

  1. I expected a little red-shift there as we sped up, but pretty cool.

    1. So, here's a question Ed. They say the stars and galaxies are headed away from us but a lot of the furthest galaxies are 13.5 billion light years away, meaning light from those galaxies is 13.5 billion years old. How do we know those suckers are not actually headed back toward the universe center ?

    2. I thought it had been demonstrated that there will be no retraction.
      "Confirmation of the Big Bang mostly depends on knowing the rate of expansion, average density of matter, and the physical properties of the mass–energy in the universe. There is a strong consensus among cosmologists that the universe is considered "flat" (see Shape of the universe) and will continue to expand forever."

    3. Quite true Ed. I just thought it would be an interesting question to pose.

  2. I find space fascinating. Yet, it is lethal to human kind and if that were not enough, then there is no where outside our own solar system that man can go in his own lifetime. But that doesn't mean we shouldn't try, and this is why I keep recommending to Kid that he round up all Democrats and send them into deep space ... the final frontier ... do it for America and the Gipper. But so far, naw ... he's not performing up to expectations. It isn't that he can't do it, it's just that he hasn't dedicated himself to the task at hand. Slacker. Sad, very sad.

    1. If only you'd lend your expertise Mustang. But I trudge on, looking for just the right incantation to motivate the libtards to self-exterminate.

      We are seeing some successes in spite of DJT's momentous efforts.

    2. Maybe getting rid of Democrats into outer space is why Trump started THE SPACE FORCE!? (who I think a friend of mine named at Rand...she was thrilled some months back, October, November? She works for a very important woman there and they asked my friend what they might call that and she suggested it!! HAAA! Not very original, but it'd be pretty cool!)

    3. Z, It seems to me we only need to convince democrats that sexual nirvana actually does exist on a very near Earth-like planet - just a short trip filled with servants and gourmet foods and beverages. Then Bam - shoot them into space to never been heard from again. It would be more than worth the expense. In fact, we'd make China pay for it.

    4. You suggest shooting dems into space.
      Why not? They've been shooting at us since Ft Sumpter.

    5. Wouldn't it be easier, simpler –– and far less expensive –– just to round thm up andSHOOT them, and be done with the bastards?

      Their corpses could easily be butchered, and processed to help feed cattle and other farm animals that help make life possible and more pleasant.

      That wy we'd get them to serve SOME useful purpose at last.

      Eeet's a good idea, you like? Haha haha haha ha ha ha!ha ha!

      Good ol'Bloody Mary! She had a practical solution for every problem!

    6. Well worth the cost Ed.

      Franco, I'd feel better they were headed out of the solar system.

    7. I understand, Kid, but do you believe even their dead bodies might continue to cause harm if allowed to remain on the planet? ;-)

    8. I believe so Franco. I want them purged into space.

  6. Since WE are just an infinitessimally small part of an infinitessimally small planet –– less than the size of a grain of sand or particle of dust proportionally among these trillions of galaxies –– I can't help wondering –– important as we like to believe ourselves to be –– if our tiny earth and those of us who wrangle constantly over who is going to get the largest share of territory and the most goodies, etc. I wonder –– quite often these days –– if WE really matter at ALL in The Great Scheme of Things, don't you?

    It could be that what-we-perceive-to-be "matter" is really nothing more than quintillions of varied combinations of neutrons, protons and electrons –– in other words nothing but ENERGY!

    What We believe to be REAL could very well just be an ILLUSION –– a figment of our imagination drawn from our painfully limited body of knowledge –– or what we BELIEVE to be knowledge.

    What if earth is nothing more than ONE ATOM in an incomprehensibly vast Cosmic Soup?

    "... For now we see through a glass darkly, but then face to face. Now I know in part, but then shall I know, even as also i am known . . .

    ~ St. Paul to the Corinthians

    What does that MEAN?

    What COULD it mean?

    I get chills every time I think of it, but also renewed hope that Existence is infinitely MORE than we poor mortals imagine it to be.

    The more I think about ll the mysteries we've never fathomed –– and the mysteries we've never yet been led to CONSIDER ––, the stronger my faith in Almighty God grows.

    1. Interesting concepts Franso. Solar system as an atom with the sun as the neutron and planets as electrons in some huge bit of material such as the fingernail of a giant being.

      Carl Sagan believes the scale of material in the universe goes to infinity both small and large. I tend to agree. He also pointed out how dictators and conquerors have fought battles over a piece of a particle of dust.

      Sagan was an atheist but he had some interesting thoughts.

    WHY WE ARE MUCH BETTER OFF WITH DONALD TRUMP THAN WE WOULD BE WITH JOE BIDEN!

    The United States has been conducting a full-scale investigation into whether the deadly virus "escaped" from the Wuhan Institute causing the Coronavirus, We have been gathering all the information about the laboratory and the initial outbreak of the Chinese Virus as possible....


    President Trump has been absolutely fearless in his attempt to find our all the facts involved. . He has been a blessing to Americans during this crisis. I can’t say as much for ANY democrats. In fact, the whole democratic approach has been nothing less than a disaster.
    When if ever will Pelosi, Schumer, Schiff, or any of the contribute any help in the matter? ?

    Will the shitstain Obama ever stop patting himself on his back?
    There is NP question that we are better off now or four years ago!

    Lets start a short list of where we're better off with Trump than with Obama, and therefor with Biden:
    1. Syria, it didn't take Trump long to defeat ISIS, which only expanded under the Obama/Biden administration.
    2. Iran, Trump has instituted some nasty sanctions on Iran, What did the Obama/Biden administration gave them other than the $1.7 BILLION in cash via airplane. In the middle of the night and $150BILLION in sanctions relief to develop Nukes, and to fund their Terror attacks!
    3. Russia, Trump stopped Germany and the European Union from funding Putin's military by selling gas to the European Union, and imposed harsh sanctions on Russia
    4. China, Trump is fighting for fair trade, and ahs accomplished much.
    5. NATO, Trump is requiring that NATO countries live up to their military funding obligations instead of getting many of the free rides from other Nations including China.
    6. Mexico, Trump got Mexico to stop the flow of illegals, and he is building a wall to help enforce US immigration Laws
    7. Canada, Trump got a new fairer trade deal from both Canada, and Mexico.
    8. Japan, South Korea, and Taiwan, Trump is doing fine with all three of those Nations.
    9. North Korea, Obama told us that North Korea is a major unresolved problem, and he was right, but that dosn’t mean that President Trump can’t stop trying.
    10. Iraq , Yemen, and Saudi Arabia,, Trump will get us out of Afghanistan , and keep Iran's nuclear ambitions to a minimum, if not a complete halt. .
    11. India, loves Trump, there isn’t any problem here. None!
    12. The US economy, jobs, stock market, and standard of living, Trump improved them all to record highs, and I have complete faith in his efforts to bring jobs back to the US and his PPP will certainly help those that are hurting. I feel that this predicament that we are in today will end faster that we originally thought.

    All in all thaese alone are reasons enough to vote for Trump in November.
    Don't make me put the list of democrat policies, and Joe Biden's gaffes and his health problems. I can easily do the same research that I did on Trump on Biden, but I dout if your going to like what I find at all.
    Like the Gestapo-like Operations from Pelosi, Schumer, Schiff, and Obama

    Just Imagine the above list if a liberal like Biden was president!

    1. And lets NOT forget Nancy Pelosi and her walking promotional tour of San Francisco’s Chinatown saying, “I’m here in Chinatown, We feel safe and sound with so many of us coming here. It’s not only to say it’s safe but to say thank you to the Chinise people for being here in Chinatown”

  8. Nancy Pelosi wants to know if she can “COUNT ON YOU” to give her in $10.00 to help her “Fight Back against President Trump”?
    That Old Bitch has a better chance selling some of her stash of Ice Cream, then getting $10.00 from me.

  9. Comrade Big Bird De Blassio has introduced his newest “Snitching” Program.
    It goes like this.
    If you see anyone who is NOT following the social distancing law of Six Feet
    Take their picture and send it to the New York Divisions of Compliance, or Text it to 311-692 . Kind of sounds like Red China, or the Good Old Day’s in Joseph Stalin’s Russia.
    If it’s found to be true, then you will be sent a badge showing that you are now a Full Blown Fascist member.
    Remember to make a note of this so that you’ll remember it if and when this Nazi ever runs for another Political office again.

    Where are the calls from Democrats to do anything about China's lies? Strangely silent.Meanwhile they're completely cool with Nancy Pelosi blocking money that would help save American small businesses and the jobs of millions of Americans.This is just one of the reasons why Democrats can never be trusted with power in the presidency again. Because it is never about protecting America or doing the best for the American people. But always and only about promoting their own power

  12. Do you know a single Trump supporter who has been swayed? I don’t know of Any!
    The Socialist Democrats have tried to push one Hoax after another, one jackass, after another has come forward with some nonseasonal accusation after another from Russia, Russia, Russia, the the Jessie Smollett Hoax and it seemed to do was to strengthened the Presidents base.
    I’ve never seen so many MAGA hats, Trump flags and Bumper stickers before in years. ....nobody here is talking about Covid-19....the discussion allover is all about the ass-whooping Trump will give to the Senile Groper, “Creepy Uncle Joe.”in November.
    The Dimsocialist’s may refuse accept it but they pulled out ALL of their front runners so as not to waste them on a sure Republican Victory, and put a sure loser in there instead. Like they were already accepting to lose.
