A Bit of a Disappointment

I’ve just been informed that the sun no longer exists. That’s odd, because I’m looking out my office window, and there it is.

I’ve just been informed that sunlight takes eight minutes to reach earth, and what I’m looking at is a snapshot of the sun from before it decided to pack its bags and leave us.

I’ve just been informed that we have exactly three minutes and twenty-six seconds until the snapshot is correct.

Guess I’d better go work on that tan while I’m still able.
