whenever i look at old pictures, especially black and white, i notice the way they look and stuff, the “filter” (i guess?) and whatever because of the quality of the camera at that period. anyway…… yeah so to my point, i always imagine that it looked that way IRL during whatever time the photo was taken. so like, for instance, picture the brady bunch (cornballs) theme song: now picture the way the video was taken. everything looks so washed out and pastelly and (if you have instagram) walden-y. i imagine that’s how it looked in real life back then. obviously it’s not true; i was born in the 90s and i know that i didnt grow up in a polaroid-looking world. but yeah, that’s why i think this is cool.. usually the pictures from the early 1900s are in black and white, so in color makes them look a little more like real life.. maybe i’m strange. either way, i find this picture interesting.

Every atom in your body came from a star that exploded. And the atoms in your left hand probably came from a different star than your right hand. It really is the most poetic thing I know about physics. You are all stardust. You couldn’t be here if stars hadn’t exploded. Because the elements, the carbon, nitrogen, oxygen, iron, all the things that matter for evolution weren’t created at the beginning of time. They were created in the nuclear furnaces of stars. And the only way they could get into your body is if the stars were kind enough to explode. So forget Jesus. The stars died so you could be here today.
I’ve decided I’m going to make better choices and be healthier. I’ve made pretty dumb decisions and now I’m ready to start fresh and be a happier, healthier human being.
