Spherical?

DRTFA: Huh, I thought it was maybe a bit wide around the middle cause of the spinning and such.

No, subby. They reported that it was very, very, very, very round.

FTFA:
"The peculiar fact that the sun is slightly too round to agree with our understanding of its rotation is also an important clue in a longstanding mystery," Kuhn said. "The fact that it is too round means that there are other forces at work making this round shape. We've probably misunderstood how the gas turbulence in the sun works, or how the sun organizes the magnetism that we can only see at the surface. Finding problems in our theories is always more exciting than not, since this is the only way we learn more."

Apparently subby finds solar dynamics more obvious than the scientist.

Is the sun hot too or are they still looking into that?

Given the shape of our planet alone we should be surprised at how round the sun is:

Suprisingly round. Shockingly round. Sexily round.

This sentence is awesome and it should feel awesome.

A little too round if you ask me.
