    OK, next time a story line in a comedy seems too far fetched...

    Look again at that dot. That's here. That's home. That's us. On it everyone you love, everyone you know, everyone you ever heard of, every human being who ever was, lived out their lives. The aggregate of our joy and suffering, thousands of confident religions, ideologies, and economic doctrines, every hunter and forager, every hero and coward, every creator and destroyer of civilization, every king and peasant, every young couple in love, every mother and father, hopeful child, inventor and explorer, every teacher of morals, every corrupt politician, every "superstar," every "supreme leader," every saint and sinner in the history of our species lived there--on a mote of dust suspended in a sunbeam.

    Geeeeeeeeez ...

    Just subtly nip into the kitchen, pinch a knife, and dice it up, yeah?

    Real life is so often far, far, far stranger than the movies.

    I was telling the wife this story the other day and she didn't believe it. I have been waiting for a follow-up about how the whole thing was a hoax or prank or stunt to get a reality TV show.
