    Shouldn`t it be "How important are we to this universe?". Also, IDK about anyone else but I don`t really care how "insignificant" I am compared to everything else. Doesn`t make me feel less about myself or anything like that. :P

    Still, 1/7000000000=0.0000000001429 I`d say that`s pretty darn insignificant.

    There`s a speck of dust in an otherwise empty room. The speck of dust is therefore the most significant thing in the room.

    There is not another `me` in this universe, making me the most significant thing in the universe, according to me.

    The people with green names were chosen to help with content, as they have proven to have excellent taste in the links they submit.

    Basically, they`re fancys_asst... but actually really good. Go out and count how many links are on the front page right now with 3.5 ratings or higher. Then go to page 50 and do the same thing.

    Yup -- 40% compared to 8%. All hail cobra and madest.

    I really don`t understand existential crises... maybe I`m too stupid to get them or too apathetic, but I`m perfectly contented living my life and causing whatever effects that I so happen to cause. Being so incredibly insignificant is, IMHO, astonishingly humbling in a really good way. It`s exciting.

    But hey I`m just 19, what the f*ck do I know?

    So, because we are small, we are insignificant? Phuck that. From a scientific standpoint, the fact that we evolved to this point is just as fascinating as the universe, itself. The universe is a shell, and as organisms we conquered it by wearing it as our clothing. Everything about us is survival, and lets face it, the universe is a wasteland. We have the most valuable plot of land we know of, because life,(as we know it,) just seems to thrive on it. So, from where I stand I piss at the universe and say "Phuck your light shows, I`m too busy breathing to care."

    All I know for sure from direct observation is that I am at the center of all I see.

    Rumors of anything before my existance are just that, Rumors. And I`ve seen no conclusive proof that any of you will continue to exist after I am gone.

    Therefore, I am ENORMOUSLY significant. You aren`t.

    "The Universe doesnt care if Man survives or is extinct."

    Not only that but this whole planet and every species on it would be significantly better off if humans went extinct. Now please excuse me while I crawl back into bed and never get out of it again! -_-

    (P.S. There are about 170 billion galaxies in the known universe, this chart needs updating.)

    "There are 9 planets. Don`t let anyone tell you otherwise."

    Weeeell if you want to count pluto as a planet then you have to count the other 4 dwarf planets in our solar system (one of which is actually larger than pluto) as planets too... bringing the total number of planets up to 13!!!
    And we all know 13 is an unlucky number.. so lets just leave it at 8 ;)

    I`m so insignificant then it doesn`t matter what I do therefore I`m allowed to do what the hell I like! Insignificance isn`t so bad.

    How about some Carl Sagan with your existential crisis?

    "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."

    Why are the planetary orbits all skewed? Due to that inaccuracy, the entire premise is suspect. Therefore, I am wildly significant.

    I am sorry but the reason they removed Pluto from being a planet is cause its so small which is bullcrap.

    If you look at the entire galaxy and base what is a planet or not on size I am pretty sure our solar system will lose some more planets.. Hell look at the stars (suns) ours is a tiny ass sun based on all the stars in our galaxy so we gonna classify it as something else?

    Pluto will forever be a planet screw those stupid scientist. In the words of ICP:

    "And I don`t wanna talk to a scientist
    Y`all motherdraters lying, and getting me pissed"

    sorry had to toss that in there.

    based on this data, if my calculations are correct (after a drunk 12.30 (yeesh, is it still only that?) on a monday night), that means the odds of your existence are 1 to 1.786*10^33 against. based on 1/7bil * 1/8 * 1/100bil * 1/100bil. Corrections?

    insignificant to who? in terms of the universe? im pretty significant to a lot of people, if you think about the amount of people you`ve affected and the amount of people they`ve affected just silghtly different because of you, and so on, you`ll find yourself being scarily important to a lot of people`s lives. so just to be on the safe side, try to be nice, try and make things better, not worse.

    you are an organism composed of hundreds of bones that form the framework for networks of nerve and blood and energy, all composed of over 10 trillion cells, each of which is a virtual little city of organelles and moving parts, transporting, copying information, reproducing, exchanging threads of proteins and codes which are in turn made up of hundreds of molecules made of various numbers of atoms which each contain their own tiny solar system of electrons, protons...

    You are a galaxy.

    Size is irrelevant.

    It`s merely glorious to exist.

    You are just insignificant as far as the rest of the universe is concerned but to the people that know and love you are are extremely significant. It is all how you choose to look at things. I mean really what does it matter if you are significant to the universe I mean really.

    Well we can`t be too insignificant. We got rid of the "planet" Pluto right? Just sprouted some hibbity-jibiity and bam, bye-bye planet, hello planetoid. I`m sure if we just reclassify some things, we can feel better again.

    You cannot determine significance without stating your point of reference. You are duty bound to say to whom you are significant or not. I am significant to me, and you are significant to you. We are all significant to someone, if only to outselves.

    so stupid.

    significance is relative.

    am i more or less significant than a mountain? i am smaller, sure, and less permanent too, but i can sing songs, write plays, kick dogs, invent machines, do so so so much more than a mountain/planet/galaxy RELATIVE to what my own existence means.

    bigger doesnt equal more important. it just equals bigger.

    insignificant in what way? in terms of size, colour, weight?

    sure, lets go with size, as that`s what it`s saying we`re tiny in... well, we arent even the biggest land mammal... so what? we`re less significant than an elephant? again... in what way?

    please read what i wrote before criticising. it is the nature of significance, if you want a little clue.

    This is a grim way of looking at life when you could just as easily reflect on how significant you are.

    definitely crappy. For a start, it`s a rip-off of an idea from Hitchhiker`s Guide to the Galaxy, then what if you were the one person who bullied the ginger kid who became the next Hitler who destroyed the world in a Global Thermonuclear War which knocked the planets out of alignment and created a mass knock-on effect, thus wiping out every single one of those billions of galaxies?

    The person who did that wouldn`t be so insignificant - and a douche. He`s probably called Greg. Yeah Greg, you big douche. Nice one, thanks.

    (btw, I am not ginger and personally know no-one called Greg)
