    Hard to believe that all of the IAB members can live on that same dot without killing each other.

    "From this distant vantage point, the Earth might not seem of any particular interest. But for us, it`s different. Consider again 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."

    Good one Davymid. Also, consider the technology it`s taken to shot these.
    Also realize the somewhere on that ball of blue Justin Bieber is pissing in a mop bucket.
