I always knew that Star Wars was real. But I always thought the Death Star was a little bigger. Sometimes the Internet makes me laugh.

Well, you know, the universe has been expanding. And that was a tale from long, long ago.

That is something to strongly consider on missions of intergalactic conquest. Your fleet of attack ships just might be swallowed by a small dog.

Just incase anyone wanted any rational discussion about these spheres, there is plenty of serious information out there. While not proven, it is more tha likely that these spheres are formed naturally (and are most definitely not anyone's planet-destroying battle station).

It's like in Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, when an alien race sends an invasion force to earth that is, due to a miscalculation of scale, swallowed by a dog.

Come to think of it, they used a similar gag in Men In Black II.

That's no pebble. That's a space station.

Don't be too proud of this technological terror you've constructed.
