Always Sunny season 10 discussion

After 10 seasons it seems like they still got it, great premier.

Loved how Dennis is still an absolute monster, his analysis of the woman was fantastic.

Charlie's subtitled drunk talk was great too.

There was just the same demo on a live CNET show and it didn't have the lag that is in this video.



All they have to do is setup one of these spots in the stands on the 50 yard line at the superbowl and boom you just sold millions of rifts

Most detailed picture of another galaxy ever taken

start zooming, it really does get staggering when you zoom in a few jumps

NASA and the European Space Agency (ESA) have released the sharpest and biggest image ever taken of the Andromeda galaxy. The image taken by the Hubble Space Telescope has an amazing 1.5 billion pixels that would require 600 HD television screens to display in full.

This panorama is the product of the Panchromatic Hubble Andromeda Treasury (PHAT) program. Images were obtained from viewing the galaxy in near-ultraviolet, visible, and near-infrared wavelengths, using the Advanced Camera for Surveys aboard Hubble.

The view shows the galaxy in its natural visible-light color as photographed in red and blue filters.

This image is too large to display at full resolution and is best viewed here, using the zoom tool.

Andromeda Galaxy, otherwise known as Messier 31, is a large spiral galaxy that lies "just" 2.5 million light years from Earth. Hubble's detailed view captures more than 100 million stars and thousands of star clusters embedded in a section of the galaxy’s pancake-shaped disc stretching across over 40,000 light-years.

The whole galaxy contains over one thousand billion stars.

But the image represents just a third of the giant galaxy. It traces the galaxy from its central galactic bulge on the left of the image, where stars are densely packed together, across lanes of stars and dust to the sparser outskirts of its outer disc on the right.

Imagery of this sophistication has more than a "wow" factor. It will help astronomers interpret the light from the many galaxies that have a similar structure but lie much further away from us than Andromeda.
