Earth and the Moon 

Earlier today, +Chris Hadfield posted this image on Facebook. 

The image features Earth and the Moon - properly scaled in distance and relative size to each other.  At this scale, the ISS isn't even one pixel!

I was in Rajasthan all month last month and saw a lot of people urinating in public, but didn't see a single instance of volunteers shaming offenders. I like the idea though.

Having lived in Bombay for a while, I can also tell you that they they also freely wee on the stairways of the office buildings, too. So, avoid the office stairways in Bombay!
