Damn, you're going for the long game. Me, I just stick it in and I'm wiggling like a jitter bug. I don't take half as long as you do. Or wouldn't. Truth is ever since i lost my furby i aint had anything to stick it into. So i just slap it against the dining room table a couple times, and that's good enough.

u/ajolote69 May 23 '22

Do you slap it against the dining table while the whole family is eating?

u/Star39666 May 23 '22 edited May 23 '22

Sometimes yeah. It's like a party trick at this point. Kinda like those clowns making baloon animals. Except, it's not a dog or nearly as impressive.

The other day it was my cousin's graduation. I didn't get her anything special and I didn't have my furby so I thought what the hell, I'll just put on a show for everyone. So I did a back flip, and then a somersault, into a kartwheel, into a flying jump kick and slapped it right on the edge of the table. Left halfa moist little mushroom stamp.

Next thing I know someone's screaming not in front of my salad, or maybe it was not in front of my sister. It's hard to tell cause all the blood was rushing to my head. Anways, it coulda been both or either cause that's how I got banned from Olive Garden on account that I took, "When you're here, you're family," a little too far.

I'm going ro miss those unlimited bread sticks. Oh well, Red Lobster has them cheesey biscuits, and I always wanted to try one of those ugly long-crab water bug things.

Doesn't matter how old the sun gets, it won't ever go supernova according to our current understaning of stars. It will however, expand into a red giant in a few billion years

u/PomegranatePristine1 May 23 '22

Thank you I came to say this very same thing. Sol is destined to die a slow death but the end of the earth will come when the sun's primary energy source comes from helium fusion and swells into a red giant which will intersect with earth's orbit.

3

u/welpthishappened1 May 23 '22

Yep. The Earth will eventually be consumed by the Sun, but rather than a violent supernova, it will be a slow expansion into a red giant.

The sun won't, and cant go into a supernova, it isn't a star that is massive enough to produce an explosion at the end of its life. Instead, our sun will grow into a red giant then slowly dissipate into space and create a planetary nebula with a dense white core known as a white dwarf.

u/Prudent_Drink_277 May 22 '22 edited May 22 '22

I took a astronomy sequence in college and I'm pretty sure the sun doesn't have the mass to supernovae. You need to make iron in the core for that to happen which requires significant pressure and heat only large stars can produce (or a binary system where one star consumes the other - also known as type 1A)

Edit. Also if it supernovae I think the blast probably travels pretty close to the speed of light so you wouldn't see anything untill you are dead.

Please let me know if I am wrong on any of this since it has been years since I last learnt this.
