    the question is really interesting to ponder over....
    if i had to give a respnse (which i know isn't the object of the game, but what the heck0
    i would say wet pain is infron of us and we can use our senses where as one million stars is hard for most of us to visualize and graso with any senses....
    unless you start comparing... (ex. get one million pennies to begin to understand one million stars)


    i got another question related to the coyote and road runner...
    how come the coyote can dies an enless amount of times but we are led to believe that the road runner, if caught would die once....??

    And how come when we ask for a reason from our parents, they say because and we have to accept that, but when we say because, we get in trouble unless we give them a reason?

    I was just wondering that...I often ask my parents...and Because I'm the mom/dad isn't a reason either...
