Dear Internet,

Does anyone else ever look at the sun, and suddenly realize how strange it is that we are standing on a ball of wet mud, floating in empty murderous space, held in orbit by an invisible force around a ball of insane burning fire 865,000 miles in diameter?

I do.

It's quite a shock while you're having a cigarette on your lunch break.

Quit smoking or you'll catch the universe on fire.

I've always enjoyed the occasional smoke. All things in moderation.

Anyway, I bought a pack of Springwaters with a good friend. They are made of Vanilla pipe tobacco, and are now illegal in this country. One of the last packs in the country. Also really god damn delicious.

I'm not a smoker, but the banning of flavored Tobacco makes me pissed 8|

Also, yeah I think about that a lot. And what could possibly be going on in other galaxies 78 billion light years away.

I was thinking about something while looking at the ground having a lunch break smoke

How humans evolved from nitrogen and carbon atoms over billions of years. The fact that our eyes' light detecting cones/rods are behind of sensory neurons rather than in front, and that the ability to hold food in a gut evolved after millions of tries of getting it wrong.

Octopi have the sensory neurons behind the cones/rods, and as a result don't have a blind spot at the optic nerve like we do. They also focus by moving the lens, like a camera, instead of by stretching it, like mammals.

When you think about it, digesting food without digesting yourself is pretty impressive, considering that you and the food are made of the same stuff!

It's a GIGANTIC UNSHIELDED NUCLEAR REACTOR! But it has a 93 million mile buffer zone around it, so we're OK. For the next five billion years, anyway.

If you were able to fly a commercial jet to the sun it would be a 42 year round trip. I love math.

No stranger than the act of inhaling heavy volumes of microscopic particles into one's lungs as a form of mild euphoria beset with addictive chemicals.
