  1. Hey guys! Only 2 more days till Las Vegas! You know you’re going to want to get the best gas prices available, so be sure to check out this site! http://fuelmyroute.com/ You’ll be glad you did! It’s a helluva lot easier than trying to measure the Universe.

  2. I am listening to a Chicago radio station online and I had to mute Pink Floyd’s “Us and Them” so I could listen to this video.

    If you do not get the coincidence/irony?, that song is on their album “The Dark Side of the Moon.”

    I guess it would have been cooler if I had to mute “Interstellar Overdrive”

  3. There’s a lot of assumptions in these supposedly foolproof methods. I’m not too sure how “standard” a “standard candle” is, nor do I see how you can use paralax to be able to measure how far the tree is if you don’t know how far the mountain is either, or if you aren’t sure how much the mountain itself has moved.

    But I’m not an astrophysicist.
