I count 31

Extra galaxies in this picture.

Does SOMEBODY out there dare to tell me we're alone?

The mind boggles.

(Oh, and if you do think we are, that's cool. I just cannot see my way around trying to count all the stars and calculating their possible attendant planets and then multiplying by the amount of, oh, infinity.)

I was just thinking of this today! About being an infinitesimal speck of matter in the ginormous cosmos, that is.

(I feel obliged to tell you I had to look "infinitesimal" up in the dictionary. Wow. I've reached a new low in pedantry.)
