    I sure as fuck do. I was just reading how the Hubbel Telescope was aimed at a black dot for four months. Turns out it was 8 other galaxies just like ours

    The size of the universe is beyond any human being's understanding.

    The idea that 14 billion years ago it took up less space than a single electron is ever more mind-boggling.
