And yet ... knowing all this people still divide that "little blue speck" up into even smaller pieces and argue and fight over them. That to me is way more "scary" than the size of the universe.
Country is a state of mind, not a state of America.

And add in the fact that it mostly happens because people choose to interprete various books written hundreds of years ago (and translated over and over again) in various different ways and it becomes even more scary!

Historically speaking, those books were correct about war, famine, plague and pestilence until now - I don't think we are destined to survive long enough to get off this planet.
Which is probably why no other intelligent life has lasted long enough to get in touch with us.

For anyone else interested in photography: Nikon P900 bridge camera brings a record-breaking 83x optical zoom

Probably will not be the best quality lens but that zoom is ridiculous. 83 X :shock:
