Out of the Blue

What It Looks Like To Leave Our Solar System At The Speed Of Light (thanks Derek) I love stuff like this so much I can watch without skipping ahead too much. It's so cool being able to visualize the unimaginable, though the title is deceptive (it actually ends a little past Jupiter). Anyway, pretty enlightening right off the bat, as I certainly never pictured Mercury being as far from the Sun as it actually is, as the vastness of space is even vaster than I'd pictured.

Do they not have insurance in China? Either way, what kind of sick fucks could smash a child's head just because it's cheaper to pay for a funeral than medical bills.

I think this is what got me. While wealth reduces compassion, this isn't just your every day lack of empathy or callousness. It's the deliberate action of so many people running their car over a fallen body again and again. It's unfathomable.

China is roughly the size of the continental US with 4 times the population. I wonder if such an abundance cheapens its value in some way for those people.
