    Im still in school bro. So far I have 2 majors, chemistry and physics. I think soon i will have to just minor in physics and finish up chem and then go back for the physics later. I want to be a pharmacologist but physic is my hobby, kinda like a passion really. Astronomy is also another hobby of mine, I have always loved the sky, planets, stars etc. peace

    Just remember that you're standing on a planet that's evolving
    and revolving at 900 miles an hour,
    It's orbiting at 19 miles a second, so it's reckoned,
    the 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 the outer spiral arm, at 40,000 miles an hour,
    of the Galaxy we call the Milky Way.

    Our Galaxy itself contains 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,
    because there's bugger all down here on Earth.

    By Monty Python
