, we are what silly putty steps on in the parking lot on the way to work. To take from the article, it is almost impossible to exaggerate how tiny we are. There is an old episode of a show (whose name escapes me) on Discovery Channel about cosmic storms that puts our spec of dust into perspective!
EDIT: The TV show is Known Universe, and the episode is Cosmic Fury (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1615274/
). Thanks Google for the quick lookup!
