this song is so true

i’m feeling quite a bit better than i did last night. still no change in the status of those four aspects, and i’m still upset about a few things, but after reading through some funny things this morning and doing only a little bit of thinking i don’t know why i was really moaning and groaning last night… ^^;;

i suppose it may be because everything sucks at 3 a.m…. ~_^

The Galaxy Song by Monty Python

sung by Eric Idle

——————————-

Whenever life gets you down, Mrs. Brown,

and things seem hard or tough,

And people are stupid, obnoxious, or daft,

and you feel that you’ve had quite enough!

Just…

Remember that you’re standing on a planet that’s evolving

Revolving at 900 miles an hour,

It’s orbiting at 19 miles a second, so it’s reckoned,

A sun that is the source of all our power.

The Sun and you and me, and all the stars that we can see,

are moving at a million miles a day,

In an outer spiral arm, at 40,000 miles an hour,

of a galaxy we call the Milky Way.

Our Galaxy itself contains a 100 billion stars,

it’s 100,000 light-years side-to-side,

It bulges in the middle, 16 000 light-years thick,

but out by us it’s just 3 000 light-years wide.

We’re 30,000 light-years from galactic central point,

we go round every 200 million years,

And our galaxy is only one of millions of billions

in this amazing and expanding universe.

The universe itself keeps on expanding and expanding,

in all of the directions it can whizz,

As fast as it can go, at the speed of light you know,

twelve million miles a minute, and that’s the fastest speed there is.

So remember, when you’re feeling very small and insecure,

how amazingly unlikely is your birth,

Pray that there’s intelligent life somewhere up in space,

’cause there’s bugger all down here on Earth.
