ah I was just making a joke....
But the sheer size of things...our brains cant even comprehend....there was a video going round earlier where it would zoom into a particle and zoom out to the known galaxy...that thing was so cool...ill try to find it...but when you just think how much space there is....at the microscopic and universal level....suddenly our facebook status' just dont seem so cool anymore...

I'd like to know, since the universe goes on infinitely, how could they know which is the largest? Actually, can there be a "largest"?edit on 3-3-2014 by Bilk22 because: (no reason given)
So they say the universe is forever expanding. They also say we will one day have the complete opposite of the big bang, the big squeeze or big collapse. This "galaxy" sort of proves this but with the vast distances between galaxies and with expansion, how does this even happen?? May a galaxy or two but ultimately with these vast distance expanding, HOW DOES THIS HAPPEN?? Mind blowing..
6 BILLION LIGHT YEARS ACROSS? Isn't that nearly half the distance of the 13.7 billion light year the known universe is? We are such cave dwelling, knuckle draggers. Only able to travel 10's of thousands of mph. Sad with all the distances that need to be traveled, we cannot make it to most of our own planets.
