ADVERTISE AT BOING BOING!
Doogie Horner, author of Everything Explained Through Flowcharts designed a chart about the work habits of the moon and sun.
Here's another flow chart that Doogie created especially for Boing Boing.
The moon’s work tends to reflect the sun’s, to a certain degree.
It’s very different in the UK, the Sun is a work-shy bastard.
I got all excited, and then realized it said Doogie Horner, not Doogie Howser
The trouble is this 1) turns a monthly cycle into a biweekly one and 2) doesn’t take into account cosmic timescales. Leave the moon alone for billions and billions of years, it stays exactly the same. Leave the sun alone for billions and billions of years, it explodes, taking out the moon and everything else in a massive proximity.
(1) bothers me too.
But don’t you think the moon’s disappearance due to an exploding sun constitutes a change in its essential moonliness?
Well, that COULD be understood as a cautionary tale against the dangers of burn-out syndrome…
Minimalist flowchart explains entire Universe. Sort of: http://qph.cf.quoracdn.net/main-qimg-adeef98a1c67a531b5dda49e8732443b
Regarding the late night talk shows, no Joey Bishop, featuring Regis Philbin?
And for six months out of the year, the sun isn’t effective at getting people out there.
Splendiferous non-rotating orb.
Ignominiously flaunting in shadows.
Slothfully wallowed in crapulence.
Never shinning always reflecting.
You can say that again.
