I have been seeing this everywhere! The hippest thing to gaze at these days is the sun. Stare into it. Its so much brighter than anything else out there right now, and its hipness outshines us all. Love it too. I think this falls into the inversion theory (which states that as technology increases the hipper natural elements become.) Perhaps the sun is really big right now because we are in the waning days of summer? Perhaps people are tired of staring into their computer screens? All I know is where can I get one?
