Puny Human

Here's the actual respective sizes of the members of our Solar System. Clearly, the Sun is the King. Jupiter and Saturn are the big bad boys, with Neptune and Uranus as doormen/servant/planet about town. Earth, Venus, Mars and Mercury are tiny specks of nothing on the scale of the Sun.

And all our lives, all our drama, all our wants and needs and loss and grief, everything we sing and see and tell on to future generations, it's all there on that speck of dust underneath the arrow labeled "Earth".
