    If you take the sun as an individual thing, it is not special, but in relation to us it is, because it keeps us alive lol. And the odds of a planet being the right size, the sun being the right size, and the distance and orbit of the planet to be right is low...obviously. Not only the sun is special, but the whole positioning of our solar system is special.

    Yea, if we could live on Venus we might as well live on the Sun too.

    We see the sun like most parents see their children: It is so very special to us, but average compared to the other children/stars.

    Rather impressed by the amount of knowledge of astronomy and geology that some people in this thread possess (particularly ItsAGuy -- really liked your post).

    I hope everyone realizes at this point that it all depends on what you mean by "special"...

    Anyway, this thread got me thinking about something I'd heard once before, as did this quote:

    Has anybody heard the idea that the sun, earth, and moon all happen to be the exact right sizes relative to one another and exact right distances from each other to make solar and lunar eclipses occur?

    Any reality to that idea?

    If so, that would be a pretty amazing coincidence...

    If you have any insight on this, please post it here, rep/pm/vm me.

    Thanks

    p.s. Tonight is the winter solstice (in the Northern hemisphere), and there is also a lunar eclipse occurring tonight. This is the first time these two events have happened in conjunction with one another in 456 years (since 1554). Pretty cool.

    Our sun ìs in special needs class. All the grownup stars think it's a bit retarded and has a growth deficiency, but they don't recognize it's artistic side, you know... facilitating live and stuff!

    Yes, our sun is very kind hearted and we should be grateful for that.
