Times Space Made Us Feel…

Well, maybe not the greatest about our human condition, but made us at least feel something. There are moments in everyone’s life where you look up in the sky, and you feel with wonder. “I wonder what’s up there?” This list isn’t composed of those happy moments of wonder. These are those moments that made you say “Carpe Diem motherfucker” as you chugged a beer and mattress surfed off your roof into a pool below.

Still hurts.

2.) Pluto was disowned by science. That hurt everyone right in the ego, and everyone just decided to not acknowledge he wasn’t a true part of the Planet Pals in the Solar System Family (yes I said Planet Pals. It’s late.)(source)

3.) There’s literally a stream of garbage floating up in space. This isn’t because we’re now launching our landfill garbage up in space, but more like we don’t pick up after ourselves so it just stays stuck in outer space. Floating somewere. (source)

4.) Stars burn out. Yes some will grow into gorgeous supernovas and others will become black holes. Yet others will become white dwarfs and just…burn out. If that doesn’t feel like an epiphany for my life, I don’t know what else is. (source)

Speaking of…

5.) The sun is going to destroy Mercury, Venus, Mars and Earth…someday billions of years into the future. Even though I won’t be around to see it, something about the planet being destroyed just makes me hold my blanket around me just a bit tighter. (source)
