    1. Humbles me and at the same time gives me a huge Wanderlust


    2. Mote of dust? Pretty egotistical.


    3. tiki god, caffino54, rattybad

      You just got trolled by teh case.


      • You’d think so, except that just about every post he’s ever made proves how hatefully stupid he really is. After awhile, taking the occasional group-dump on him acquires the quality of a moral obligation.


        • Nah, he’s not actually that stupid at all. It’s pretty easy to see through his little spiel.
          But everyone has been bashing him like mad, so now you feel like he really is stupid. You can’t possibly know what really goes on in his mind, except that it’s clear that he enjoys reactions like this.

          And this, was my analysis of the day. That will be $500.


    4. Yo mamaa so fat that she’s here. She’s home. She’s us. On her everyone you love, everyone you know, everyone you ever heard of, every human being who ever was, lived out their lives. The aggregate of our joy and suffering, thousands of confident religions, ideologies, and economic doctrines, every hunter and forager, every hero and coward, every creator and destroyer of civilization, every king and peasant, every young couple in love, every mother and father, hopeful child, inventor and explorer, every teacher of morals, every corrupt politician, every “superstar,” every “supreme leader,” every saint and sinner in the history of our species lived on her — on a fat ho of dust suspended in a sunbeam.


    5. Pretty sure the title should be “Pale Blue Dot,” not “mote of dust suspended in a sunbeam.”

      Also – I think his quote carries a lot more weight when used with the original photograph he was talking about, and not with the one we see here.


    6. “… It has been said that astronomy is a humbling and character-building experience. There is perhaps no better demonstration of the folly of human conceits than this distant image of our tiny world. To me, it underscores our responsibility to deal more kindly with one another, and to preserve and cherish the pale blue dot, the only home we’ve ever known.”

      That being said, ROCK ON DUDES!!!


    7. Hey M[C]S, let’s go exploring.
