So I was just eating my apple...

and realized how complex yet perfect the Earth is, let alone the whole universe. Imagine if gravity were off just a little... nothing would work right. Stars would explode.

Man, our Creator really knew what He was doing.

Seriously, I just thought of this as I bit into my apple thinking "wow, there sure are a lot of fruits that just happen to be tasty and good and growing."

I had an apple as I left for my 11 o clock class. You know what I thought? "This apple is really good."

Seriously though, how everything in the universe all works together is absolutely insane.

Aside from me calling your thread gay, I do agree though. It's pretty cool how everything just works. I think about that stuff mostly cuz I'm a nerd. Being an engineer makes it even more pronounced how ridiculous it is that everything just fits together. Crazy stuff.

Really want to blow your mind? Think about how fast those delicate little titanium valves open and shut as your crank shaft spins at 13000 rpms per minute. Imagine the piston speed at that rpm and those tiny little piston oil rings clinging on for dear life at terribly high temperatures. Or how your FI and ignition advance can be calibrated to different throttle positions and engine speed in a millisecond. Work your mind around how those thin crank and rod bearings stay seperated from hi friction calamity by a thin layer of 10W40 oil. How in the world do engines stay in one piece?!

Just think how fast/far you would fly if the earth came to a sudden halt.
