image for Universe No Bigger Than a Pin Prick

Scientists reported today that, according to their calculations, the universe, rather than being the very, very large object we have come to expect, is actually significantly smaller than the period at the end of this unusually long sentence.

"About the size of a pin prick." offered Dr. Higgle Piggle, lead researcher and head of the Astronomy Department. "As it turns out, astronomers have been trying to understand the universe by looking further and further out into space with more and more powerful telescopes, when all the time we should have been using microscopes."

When questioned about the apparent contradiction of A) everything we see fitting into a pin prick and B) looking at the universe from the outside when we are actually supposed to be inside the universe, the professor said, "I don't have to explain everything--haven't you ever seen Lost?"
