Ahh that soothing sound of rain. Perhaps it isn't all that good for background noise when making a vlog, but boy do I feel as if I've got so much energy at the moment! In fact, rain actually puts a subconscious state on our mind to make us more hyperactive. Well, actually by fact I mean, something that I think I heard someone tell me before - but that's a fact right? The important thing is that I trust everybody who tells me everything on the internet at all times. No exceptions.
Now if you guys will just excuse me for a second, I just have a prince I need to go and meet from uh... what's that country in Africa? Eh pfft. (*Walks off* Cut to picture of me holding a walking stick smiling with caption: 20 minutes later.) Um. Ok. Not saying I got mugged and had my clothes stolen, um. People are dicks.
Well it's a good thing I keep like 6 spare copies of the exact same outfit. DEMOTIVATIONAL SCIENCE! Spoiler alert; you die! Extra spoiler alert; you're probably not going to heaven. [More at the end... no pun intended... of the video.] Extra, extra, read all about it spoiler alert; that makes me kind of depressed. Yes if we take a mix of science and theology, it kind of spells out doom for our afterlives... or, after... deaths? And it also kind of makes me feel kind of small. Well, kind of is sort of relative, kind of means... infinitesimally. But let's embrace life, and try not to think about it *breaks down crying*. What's the point? What's the damn point?! [Give that man an Oscar]. I have like 50 subscribers on YouTube and I'm still tiny. And I don't mean tiny like that, but... you get the point - well actually you don't because I haven't explained it yet. Basically, I've done this kind of like a bad Quentin Tarrantino movie, in that I've put the end at the start, though that wasn't as much uh, sophisticated design as much as um, I don't have a logical train of thought happening at the moment because it's raining.
[We are not special or significant]
All of us learn about index numbers in high school to some sort of degree, but we don't really comprehend them - and it's kind of sad. Not sad in the kind of Toy Story 3 sad... but more sad in the - actually yeah, sad in the Toy Story 3 sad. When I was younger, I read the book of Genesis, and it left me with this hope and this spirit that there's something watching over us and that we are special and loved. [Disclaimer; not a Christian at all]. I'm not saying that there isn't a God - I'm just saying that we're not really special and unique and significant... at all.
There are 8 planets in our solar system, plus a number of moons that could support life [166+ moons] if given the right conditions. Then there are roughly 300 billion stars in our galaxy, The Milky Way. Then there are at least that many galaxies in the entire universe that are probably about the same size, give or take. Which gets us to this very interesting number, that is the number of estimated atoms in the known universe, which is roughly 10^73 - which means 1 with 73 naughts after it. Which, I'll admit at first didn't seem like it was that much, like it's only a 10 and a 73 - they're both only two digit numbers and we're talking about the whole of creation here. But... no. If you try and comprehend that number your mind is probably going to explode and your face will melt off as if you've looked at Charlie Sheen
As an example, let's take than number and divide it by one billion. Suddenly, we've gone from 10^73 to 10^64 - which is a 10% difference right? Well actually no not really it's actually no difference at all - BUT - It seems like a big difference. But in order to divide something by a billion, that means, say taking... taking the entire wealth of Bill Gates and dividing by a billion would leave him with roughly the amount of money that you probably have in your wallet right now. Dividing by a billion will leave the earth roughly the size of this 5 cent coin. Dividing the last century by one billion will leave you with a bit of time equal to this [1, 2, 3]. Dividing by one billion will leave all organised religion in the world as just one guy standing in the corner going "urgh gay people". And if you divide the number of people who are going to get angry at me for that last joke, then it's not even worth being concerned about I guess.
Um, also on that note, this is a two-parter. Part two is coming out later... ahh, too long. *waves goodbye*
