I scared him. To death. To the point where my stature frightened him. The mood I was in. The pain in my voice. That frightened him. He couldn’t handle it. But the truth is, he couldn’t handle himself. The pain extended from him. He was the cause, I was the effect and he didn’t like the reality of pain. When you hurt someone, you must face it. You must live in it. You must understand it so you don’t continue the torment. He never faced it nor understood it, which is why the discomfort angered him.

Consider this: You can see less than 1% of the electromagnetic spectrum and hear less than 1% of the acoustic spectrum. As you read this, you are traveling at 220 km/sec across the galaxy. 90% of the cells in your body carry their own microbial DNA and are not “you.” The atoms in your body are 99.9999999999999999% empty space and none of them are the ones you were born with, but they all originated in the belly of a star. Human beings have 46 chromosomes, 2 less than the common potato. The existence of the rainbow depends on the conical photo-receptors in your eyes; to animals without cones, the rainbow does not exist. So you don’t just look at a rainbow, you create it.

We love it when awesomely huge things are put into relatable perspective, but every once in a while the results are also very unexpected. 

Case in point: We all know Godzilla is incredibly tall, but the original Godzilla from the 1954 film was only 50 meters (164 feet) tall. Japanese Twitter user Shinobu Yoshino recently created this graphic which places a scale version of the first Godzilla in modern-day Tokyo. Today the city’s numerous buildings are so tall themselves that Godzilla looks positively puny in comparison.

Shhh, no one tell Godzilla he’s short. We don’t want to hurt his feelings.
