you used to go on the internet and download cool things for your computer, because it was easier than buying them or going to your friends house. and then youd have some cool things on your computer that you didn't do before. thats definitely a net win for the internet. but it isnt really like that anymore is it. instead you go on the internet and thats it. the internet IS the cool thing! and that would be really convenient except the internet isnt cool at all and also it sucks ass

you: yes, you're right-handed

me: hmm. seems strange. i'm doubtful about the whole thing. i don't FEEL like a "Right-Handed Person"

you: you do *everything* with your right hand. you're not even ambidextrous

scientists have discovered that theres more than one sun. in fact there may be many. perhaps even multiple. and theyre all different and also perhaps in different places. and - most mind-boggling of all - there could be suns other than our own sun, which we call The Sun! so we might just have to start calling it "A Sun" instead! the most mind-boggling thing that these boffins have been saying is that we might actually find that our sun is just one of many suns, which are out there somewhere

scientists have discovered a huge problem with the sun. which is that because the sun's round you can't tell which way up it is
