Are we all ticking timebombs?

It's funny, I found myself getting pissed off this morning driving to work because the sun was right in my line-of-sight blinding me. Rationally, I know I shouldn't be pissed off because this is completely out of anyone's control. But I notice that I get annoyed by little things more and more. I wonder if the internets has anything to do with it?

Fucking Sun! I wish it would be consumed in a nuclear reaction.

The sun is a mass of incandescent gas
A gigantic nuclear furnace
Where Hydrogen is built into Helium
At a temperature of millions of degrees

The sun is hot, the sun is not
A place where we could live
But here on Earth there'd be no life
Without the light it gives

We need its light, we need its heat
The sun light that we seek
The sun light comes from our own sun's
Atomic energy

The sun is a mass of incandescent gas
A gigantic nuclear furnace
Where Hydrogen is built into Helium
At a temperature of millions of degrees

The sun is hot...

The sun is so hot that everything on it is a gas
Aluminum, Copper, Iron, and many others

The sun is large...

If the sun were hollow, a million Earth's would fit inside
And yet, it is only a middle size star

The sun is far away...

About 93,000,000 miles away
And that's why it looks so small

But even when it's out of sight
The sun shines night and day

We need its heat, we need its light
The sun light that we seek
The sun light comes from our own sun's
Atomic energy

Scientists have found that the sun is a huge atom smashing machine
The heat and light of the sun are caused by nuclear reactions between
Hydrogen, Nitrogen, Carbon, and Helium

The sun is a mass of incandescent gas
A gigantic nuclear furnace
Where Hydrogen is built into Helium
At a temperature of millions of degrees

Just remember that you're standing on a planet that's evolving
And revolving at nine hundred miles an hour,
That's orbiting at nineteen miles a second, so it's reckoned,
A sun that is the source of all our power.
The sun and you and me and all the stars that we can see
Are moving at a million miles a day
In an outer spiral arm, at forty thousand miles an hour,
Of the galaxy we call the 'Milky Way'.
Our galaxy itself contains a hundred billion stars.
It's a hundred thousand light years side to side.
It bulges in the middle, sixteen thousand light years thick,
But out by us, it's just three thousand light years wide.
We're thirty thousand light years from galactic central point.
We go 'round every two hundred million years,
And our galaxy is only one of millions of billions
In this amazing and expanding universe.

The universe itself keeps on expanding and expanding
In all of the directions it can whizz
As fast as it can go, at the speed of light, you know,
Twelve million miles a minute, and that's the fastest speed there is.
So remember, when you're feeling very small and insecure,
How amazingly unlikely is your birth,
And pray that there's intelligent life somewhere up in space,
'Cause there's bugger all down here on Earth.

You know another thing that pisses me off? Oxygen! We'd be so much better off if it didn't exist. What is rust? Oxidation! When something oxidizes rapidly, we see it as burning. Oxygen is responsible for thousands of fire deaths worldwide every GODDAMN YEAR! It combines with carbon to form carbon monoxide (a poison THAT CAN KILL YOU!) or carbon dioxide (which Algore claims can kill us all!). It combines with hydrogen to form dihydrogen monoxide, something that is responsible for many more thousands of deaths. Won't someone ban this pernicious element? Won't someone THINK OF THE CHILDREN?

Or, like, when people take pictures of landmarks when they want to remember places they've been!

While the sun, oxygen, and gravity all are becoming bigger and bigger problems, it's Dihydrogen Monoxide that is a real global threat. Read more: http://www.dhmo.org/

If you wanna make the move
then you better come in
it's just the ability to reason
that wears so thin
living and dying and the stories that are true
secrets to a good life is knowing when you're through

black coat, white shoes, blackhat, cadillac
the boy's a time bomb

he's back in the hole where they got him living
like a rat but he's smarter than that nine lives
like a cat take him to the youth authority home
first thing you learn is that you got to make it
in this world alone

now he's gotten out he's gotten free he's gotta go
gotta car 21 years old he's runnin' from the
bar his pager's beepin' he's got in deep in
whatever he can move on in you know that kid's a creepin'

in tears come from the razor that's been tattooed below
his eye his mother cries she knows that he is strong enough
to die he's rollin' in the cadillac it's midnight sunroof is down
three shots rung out the herd's deal
the new king is crowned.

Dihydrogen monoxide is only a small part of the larger oxygen problem, as shown here.

As a kid, I used to get irrationally mad at the wind. Then I learned how to break it.
