Another Space Video
Posted on 19. Aug, 2008 by The Gimcracker in Amazing, Science
I can’t help it, I am intrigued by things that may seem pointless or boring to you. For instance I love telling people that there are more possible chess game outcomes than atoms in the universe. I usually get one of two responses to that:
- “Your life saddens me.”
- “That’s impossible. Your life saddens me.”
It only follows that this video intrigued me. It’s another video about the relative size of things, specifically using the power of 10 scale. If you liked my previous posts regarding this sort of thing (Big Ol’ Numbers and Our Sun Is Tiny) then you will undoubtedly enjoy this video. If not, here is the web page you should be reading instead.
Here’s my way of saying thanks to you for somehow having enough of an attention span to still be reading this scatter-brained blog. I like to sprinkle a little miscellany everywhere I can, especially if it’s gimcrack miscellany. If you read Digg everyday you’ve already seen these. Sorry.
Lightning strike right on the beach! (Audio is NSFW)
Chuck Norris in training! BOOM HEADSHOT
I’ve seen that inner space/outer space video in school before. Very cool. That lightning strike was incredible!!!
