The Universe Be Hella Violent, Yo.

Postby Squid » Fri Jan 11, 2008 12:26 pm

This somewhat Conradian take on the cosmos makes me long for the more Saganesque, "to create an apple pie, you must first create the universe!" days of yore:

Astronomers Describe Violent Universe

The deeper astronomers gaze into the cosmos, the more they find it's a bizarre and violent universe.

I think I like this new "violent universe" aesthetic. I was getting a little sick of all this "elegant" and "awe-inspiring" wonder of nature syrupy cooing.

The plainest words are finest, ne? "jerk blackhole" is pretty plain. :)

that article is full of cool band names: Rogue Black Holes, Cosmic Quirks, Blue Blobs, Hugging Stars... And wouldn't you want to name an album Slow Strangulation?

What, violence can't be elegant and awe-inspiring?

If Bruce Lee wasn't part of the universe, then the universe would be like him. But since he's part of the universe, it IS him, if you follow me. But not just localized around Bruce Lee. No, there are Bruce Lee pockets throughout the cosmos.

Violent, bizarre, awe-inspiring.
