Go outside and look up

You can see some pieces of a comet burning up in the atmosphere. It's a meteor shower, dudes.

I saw a couple and I live right outside NYC, so don't give up if there is a ton of light pollution near you.

If you live below the equator: tough luck, next time choose a better hemisphere (if you look north you might still see a few).

    You can see the meteor shower pretty clearly right now in San Diego. I told Loomdun to go outside and look at it because he is an art person but he is stupid and refuses to go out there.

    I'm going to rape him for missing this

    you can leave your friends inside
    cuz your friends don't go outside
    and if your friends don't go outside
    then they're no friends of mine

    I could just look at my hands and marvel at the extraordinary process and time it took to produce such useful digits and a species as a whole. way better than some stupid rocks falling through the sky

    Also, if this damn thing had come one day earlier I could have seen it under one of the darkest skies in America.

    Unless that pesky moon was shinin' up the place.
