I came home today and found the largest gas bill I'd ever seen. Then I realized that I must not have paid the bill last month. When I subtracted that amount: still the largest gas bill I had ever seen.
I checked my e-mail and a friend had sent me that one showing that the earth is tiny compared to Jupiter which is tiny compared to the sun, which is tiny compared to Antares. It was going to be tiny compared to Betelgeuse but I realized I didn't know how to spell Betelgeuse, although, look, my spell check did. Anyway, the point of his e-mail was to keep things in perspective.
Uh-huh, still the largest gas bill I've ever seen. And unless the Jovians are planning on paying for it, it's not clear what good all these pictures do.
