astrophysics: iPad 18:43 Q Search for people, places and things I have an IQ of 196 and am seeking a roommate of my same mental capacity with whom l can engage in casual conversations about quantunm mechanics and theoretical astrophysics. I am smarter than 99% of the people l encounter, however, being as insanely smart as I am can be quite a burden. For instance, I can never win arguments because the reason I'm right is too complex to explain within the attention span of my opponent. Alas, nobody understands my plight. I often stay up at night reading Chaucer and contemplating the repercussions of false philosophy. I love astounding everybody in the library by finishing a 419 page novel in just under 100 minutes. I am also a passionate artist and musician. Just earlier I heard a door squeak a melodic minor 7th, something only a true musician would realize. Last night I wrote a poem while in a club. Of course l of all people would stop dancing in the middle of a dance floor at 11:30 at night and start to ponder about the decay of our society. How disquieting the institution of superficiality in contemporary culture is. We exist in a zeitgeist bastardization of those principles our forefathers strove to exemplify. If you're going to be my roommate you must enjoy classical, enchanting tunes; not the talentless, computerized sounds that the modern generation "listens" (if you can even call it that) to. You must also agree with me on the following points: The black race holds itself back, and is not being held back by other races The middle east needs to go Gender identity issues are a mental illness You 100% can work your way out of poverty, people who think otherwise are just lazy and thus show why they are in poverty If you meet all of my qualifications, I will potentially consider you as a possible roommate. P.S. I could have gotten more intellectual with my profound vocabulary but decided to dumb it down so that your lesser minds could fully comprehend the meaning of my words.

astrophysics: If you live in the United States, clear your calendar for 21 August 2017. ☀️ On that day, millions of people across the country will witness the Sun disappear behind the Moon for two minutes in the middle of the day. Daylight will turn to twilight, the temperature will suddenly drop, and an awe-inspiring visual experience will captivate the continent. For the first time in hundreds of years, the middle of North America will host a total solar eclipse all its own. Rare in its own right, what makes this particular total eclipse unique is that it will only be viewable from the continental United States. The last time this happened was on 29 July 463 CE, making this the first total solar eclipse that is exclusive to the U.S. in the nation’s history. The ‘Great American Eclipse’ will be a remarkable event, and is likely to be one of the most witnessed astronomical events for a generation. A solar eclipse occurs when the Moon passes between Earth and the Sun, thereby partially or totally obscuring the view of the Sun from Earth. A *total* solar eclipse occurs when the Moon's apparent diameter is larger than the Sun's, thus blocking all direct sunlight and plunging day into darkness. The so-called “path of totality” – the 70-mile-wide (113 km) shadow region from which the total eclipse is visible – will move across the United States from west to east, starting in Oregon (eclipse time: ~10:20 AM) and ending in South Carolina (eclipse time: ~2:45 PM), racing across no less than 14 American states. If you plan on witnessing the event, don’t forget to buy properly designed and certified solar filter glasses ahead of time, as it is very dangerous to view an eclipse without adequate eye protection. Any guesses when the next exclusively-American eclipse will be? Not until 25 January 2316, which should leave you plenty of time to prepare. 🔭😯 What are your exciting viewing plans for the ‘Great American Eclipse’ of 2017? Let us know!

astrophysics: KillerTapeWorm 382 points 19 hours ago Hi Dr Tyson, huge fan. I know its a big question, but how do you go on knowing how small we are in this universe? The thought of my insignificance in the grand scheme of things tends to depress me as much as the vastness of the universe interests me Thanks for your time! neiltyson [S] 1883 points 16 hours ago Why should knowing we are indeed small in time, space, and size have anything to do with insignificance. Bacteria surely don't feel that way and they are billions of times smaller than us, yet they do most of our digesting. Ant's surely don't feel that way yet they likely represent nearly 20% of Earth's biomass. Why not instead think of hovw awesome it is that our 3lbs Human brain matter actually figured all this out. Why not look up to the clear night sky, and reflect on the fact that we don't simply live in this universe, but the universe lives within us -through the atoms and molecules of our bodies, forged in the hearts of stars that long ago gave their lives to the galaxy...and to us. This is, of course, one aspect of the cosmic perspective that perhaps I and my astrophysics colleagues take for granted, but cannot be told often enough NDTyson <p>Dr. Neil deGrasse Tyson bringing the wholesomeness. via /r/wholesomememes <a href="http://ift.tt/2oQRnIU">http://ift.tt/2oQRnIU</a></p>

 Hi Dr Tyson, huge fan. I know its a big question, but
 how do you go on knowing how small we are in this
 universe? The thought of my insignificance in the
 grand scheme of things tends to depress me as
 much as the vastness of the universe interests me
 Thanks for your time!
