From my favorite bizarro comic strip, xkcd - A Webcomic, by Randall Munroe, here's a marvelous(ly huge) chart of the "Observable Universe," from the top...

...to the bottom....

[Note: the image is waaaay too tall for Blogger to display, so you'll have to see it at the original site here.]


Note: The disclaimer at the bottom of this web page reads

Warning: this comic occasionally contains strong language (which may be unsuitable for children), unusual humor (which may be unsuitable for adults), and advanced mathematics (which may be unsuitable for liberal-arts majors).
The tiny, tiny print below this reads

We did not invent the algorithm.
The algorithm consistently finds Jesus.
The algorithm killed Jeeves.
The algorithm is banned in China.
The algorithm is from Jersey.
The algorithm constantly finds Jesus.
This is not the algorithm.
This is close.

I love this guy!
