Half Term and All That

It's also hard to type with gloves on. Just though you'd like to know.

Music composition is hard.

Life is very boring.

If a planet 100 light years away means we see the events on the planet 100 years after they happened, then that is the time relative to us, or something. So if you were to move towards the planet at the speed of light, you would technically take 100 years to get there, over the period of which 200 years of history will be played out as you approach the planet, since the light of the planet is moving towards you now at, relatively, twice the speed. Time behind you would also, relatively speaking, stop. However, all events are still happening, regardless of where you are, at their designated time. What if we do co-exist in this galaxy with sentient space-faring lifeforms, right now? Well, depending on distance (remember the sun takes 8 min to get to us already...) we may all die out before a message could ever reach them.

That was pretty hard to type you know. Note to self, don't type fast with gloves or you'll have to correct it afterwards, which takes quite a while.

Also global economy problems.

Rant(ing from an) Over(seeing committee which ensures that American oversight committees continue to make oversights - no wonder we're in a mess).
