The sun is hot

It is so hot that everything on it is a gas: iron, copper, aluminum, and many others.

The sun is large

If the sun were hollow, a million Earths could fit inside. And yet, the sun is only a middle-sized star.

The sun is far away

About 93 million miles away, and that's why it looks so small.

And even when it's out of sight
The sun shines night and day

I'm fairly sure that those numbers are wrong.

For one thing, I'm fairly sure that the sun is about a thousand times the width of the Earth; which would mean that about a thousand million Earths would fit into it, since, of course you just cube a thousand to figure out this equation.

Also, I'm fairly sure that the sun is about ten thousand million miles away.

Scud was only quoting the lyrics to the song. If you want to complain about it, talk to They Might Be Giants themselves.

I know that. I was just pointing out some of the facts to discredit the credibility of this pro-sun propaganda.

I suspect that the sun is secretly allied with the Commies on the Red Planet.


Pro-Sun is Anti-Earth!

the song is not wrong. The you just are thinking about the wrong sun. They tend to change to a diffrent sun every so often. Either way they arn't singing entirly about our own sun.
I'm sorry Maw. I didn't means ta gets Auntie Suzie pregnant again.

The Sun causes cancer. It's also responsible for making our planet FAR hotter than its natural temperature. It also holds weapons of mass destruction. Hell, the sun is so much of a danger to us that, that I'd be willing to ally ourselves with the Czar of Mars himself just to destroy it. Those Martians are skilled in the art of war, so this would be a wise strategy.

Screw the Czar of Mars, let's get Mr. George W. Bush on this one. (I'll bet the sun harbors terrorists too.)
