    I wonder if such an elliptical orbit causes the planet (or whatever it is) to accelerate as it passes by its sun like a gravitational slingshot. I also wonder if that has any effects on what happens on the surface.


    And I doubt there's life on it if the closest it passes to its sun is 7 billion km. Unless it's one big and powerful fucking sun.

    I think this would be a good time to start recruiting people to join my suicide cult.

    Flock to me, people! Put on your Nikes and purple robes and flock to me!

    Yes, he controlled them with simultaneous doses of fear and love.

    And telepathy.

    Can I still join if I already castrated myself in preparation for that last planned exit that didn't work out?
