Sitting under the bright umbrella,
Oh, what a very lucky fella.

RW Cephei is an orange hypergiant, 1535 times bigger than our sun. If you replaced our sun with RW Cephei the surface would extend out beyond Jupiter. That would suck for the fine people of Earth. The not-so-fine people of Earth would just get what's coming to them.

Is this the definition of "pop-up storm"?

Radar shows downpour 100 miles to the west as we get an absolute deluge.

I'm reading the ingredients of this small 55g packet of nuts. It's got raisins and pistachios from different parts of Greece, pinecone something* from China, almonds from Spain and walnuts from Ukraine. And now I'm imagining multiple colorful semi trucks from all the world converging to a packing station to deliver 11 grams of each precious ingredient to be packed in plastic, probably from a sixth location, before it finally reaches me. #smallstories
