God's blood is a 50/50 mix of lucozade, vodka and chocolate milk. and before anyone bleats about that being three things - it's God ffs. you tell him.

When you sit and just try to comprehend the sheer f***ing size of it all, it f***ing hits you just how miniscule and unimportant you are in the grand scheme of things.

f***s your head right up.

I'd love to see ANY of it.

The one sight I've always wanted to see, was Earth, viewed from some distance away (orbiting the moon?). just to see how insignificant we are compared to the vastness of the rest of it.

Never happen though.

Nice link, cheers.


I also liked this bit:

The pillars, known as the Eagle Nebula or M16 portray a starbirth area

Many a star has been discovered in M16 alright.

You'd be lucky to see the Earth orbiting the Moon...

I've always thought that if NASA offered a one-way mission to see what's beyond the Solar System in a ship that can sustain you for ten years (imagining for a moment that such a ship existed), I'd take it.

Yea, I'm hugely jealous of the Apollo astronauts. Must be f***ing unreal, to see the Earth rising over the horizon...I'd love to have that experience.
