(Short List)   So NASA have a single photo that encapsulates the Sun's activity over the course of an entire year. And some wise ass has stuck a swirly GIF beneath it, to mess with your head   (shortlist.com) divider line 25

Depends on where one is from.

I'm pretty sure I saw a tie fighter zooming around in there.

That author wants me to stare at the sun? No, sir! I was told to never stare at the sun!

M-O-O-N, that spells blind! Laws yes!

Please tell me I am not the only one that looked at the picture of the sun and got the eye trick before even knowing about the little black and white GIF below it.

It's a big orange swirly thing in space!

10:11, Personal note: When I was a little kid my mother told me not to stare into the sun. So once when I was six I did. The doctors didn't know if my eyes would ever heal. I was terrified, alone in that darkness. Slowly, daylight crept in through the bandages, and I could see. But something else had changed inside of me. That day I had my first headache.

The sun is a big round lump of coal...and it is most definitely ON FIRE!

Stare at this gif for 30 seconds then stare at the sun again.

Anyone that ever writes this sentence and includes it in an article should have their eyes poked Stooge-style. Idiot. Don't they know there are OTHER morons out there? Litigious morons who actively seek out crap like that?

No. Company names have been classified like collective nouns. Mentally replace the name with "they" and you'll get it right.

For example, you wouldn't say, "They has a single photo..."

That was cool.

OK, I stared at the black and white swirly thing for over a minute, but then didn't see jack shiat on the sun pic.  But now I'm having these.... really.... strange.... thoughts. About, like, assassinating a certain political figure. Almost like a compulsion, really. I've also got this address, somewhere in LA, showing up in my vision as a place to get the guns. And there's a pounding in my head, something about.... shape changing aliens who are using us for food..... And I keep hearing this deep voice: "DOOOOOOOOOM.....DOOOOOOOOOOOOOOM,... DOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOMMMMMMMM....... "

So this is not what I should have gotten out of the article?

Collective nouns are singular. So, NASA should not be classified as "they," but rather "it."

For example, "The chain of mountains is beautiful" is correct. "The chain of mountains are beautiful" is not.

One day we will find a combination of materials and energy sources to colonize the Sun.

Seriously, screw off. We aren't even discussing that, so please avoid threadshiatting when it is even less relevant than it normally is.

Luddite. Never say never. Computers used to be big. Anything is possible. The species. Technology.

No. Britain is the same - we just tend to get it wrong.
