Welcome to LA

 

Los-Angeles-405-freeway-LA-gridlock-traf

 

That has got to be the 405, dang near at any time of any day.  One of the worst stretches of "free"way anywhere, I'd imagine...

The freeway in the picture on the right is definitely the 405. The Variety building, seen at the upper right, is at the intersection of Santa Monica and Sepulveda Blvd which is right next to the 405.

Seriously, there are some fucking awesome reasons to appreciate being alive in this decade. This photo, for example.

What's insane about this little slice of the galaxy in our itty bitty solar system is that from Pluto, the sun just looks like another star out in the darkness.  A slightly bright star, but it blends in almost inconspicuously.  However, the gravity of the Sun influences Pluto.  

 

Think about that for a second.

 

We're not special third line.

^^Yes! It is very cliché, but true to say that all our little problems, disagreements and issues are not worth two shits from that far out.

Panorama from NASA's Opportunity rover on the rim of Endeavour crater on March 10th 2017. I love how ordinary it looks. It could be any desolate place on Earth.

First person to suggest it IS someplace on Earth gets a slap.
