Better And Better

If you don't draw yours, I won't draw mine.

Scale: the impact depends on the viewer.

You could see everything in this in 10 seconds.

I spent a good 10 minutes, myself.

I feel very small.

But it's a shame that it didn't show parsecs in the scale.

However, it did teach me about the yottameter. Yotta was not a prefix that I had heretofore known. Interesting. It looks very useful. Well, to someone.

That was the most fun I've had on the internets in some time. Sheer genius!

Tell me, did you run the slider back and forth a few times yelling "Wheee!", or is that just me?

For a minute I though you were talking about the Yactometers... :-) And yeah, we're pretty insignificant in the grand scheme of things.

Hell, yes, I did.

But only after first saying "Whoa!"

I'm afraid it'll come in handy for describing the national debt pretty soon...

We're all small from the god-view.





I understand the ultimate utility, but it also reminds me that many of us have too much time. Then again, as long as responsibilities are met, who am I to judge?
