Not as insignificant as a piece of cosmic string.

That’s an impressive illustration of the universe. I may take that to show my High School Sunday School class.

I’m pretty insignificant but God felt that I was worthy of creation.

Wow, amazing. And I’m the most important thing in it! Hey, is that a piece of fairy cake? If I told you how hungry I was I wouldn’t have time to eat it.

There are really giant earthworms 7 meters long? I thought that was just a bad Kevin Bacon movie.

"And, uh.. a cop pulls me over. And he makes me get out, he looks at me and he says, "Heyyy.. are you small"? I said, "No-o-o! I'm not!" He said, "Well, I'm gonna have to measure you." They have this little test they give you - they give you a balloon.. and if you can get inside of it, they know you're small. Now, I've already talked it over with the cast - they've been working all week, it's a tough thing to do, come out here live.
 
Immediately after the show, we're all gonna go out.. and get really small! "

Whatever it is, it’s excellent.

How is the estimated size of the universe larger than the observable universe?

What is the basis of that specific estimate (900YM) if we can’t see past 140YM?

Just curious.

Space is big. You just won't believe how vastly, hugely, mind- bogglingly big it is. I mean, you may think it's a long way down the road to the chemist's, but that's just peanuts to space.
