This is mean, but hilarious!
This is total shit. You will never wish upon a star that’s a million years old because the furthest star from us in the Milky Way is about 70,000 light years away. And the chances of one that you can see already being dead are quite slim.
But the post is right in one sense. If you think your dreams are going to come true simply because you wish they would they might as well be dead
In addition, “lightyears” is being used as a measurement of time when in fact, it’s a measurement of distance. Still hilarious regardless.

Textbook: The “brightness” of a star is measured in terms of radiative flux.
Website: Luminosity is generally understood as a measurement of “brightness”.
No wonder people get so confused about the difference between flux and luminosity - and which one is a measure of “brightness”…
How am I just now hearing about this?!
theehokeypokey answered: there are several options. My advice is download vmware player, and use that to run a vm of linux or unix. Emacs has a windows GUI too
Okay, I see that apparently VMware Player is a good start for those wanting to try out different operating systems. Once I download VMware Player, am I going to have access to these OS through this software? Or am I going to have to download LINUX independently and run them through this software? I admit, I am completely lost, so I appreciate you guys helping me out.
I need some help with the above. For my research internship, we’ve been learning Python (which I’m somewhat familiar with) but then we’ve also been using/ learning LINUX, UNIX, Emacs…. I want to familiarize myself with what we’re doing at home but I have Windows 7 and the terminal has a different syntax than what I’ve been using at my school. Am I supposed to download LINUX? UNIX? Emacs? If I download a new operating system, will they change the entire software of my computer? I am so confused. Can someone please help?
Really? As if doing so was even an option, you disgusting pig.
My friend was skeptical about Mars One and sent an email to Dr. ‘t Hooft. This is the response he got.
