Celestial Inequality Month

School screens normally have something idiotic or ironic written on them (see Trash passim), and this week was no exception. One of the faux announcements being royally ignored by students was the revelation that it is Sun Awareness Week.

So, since the sun only occupies the sky for half of every day, we asked some students to tell us how aware they were of the sun:

“What, that big ball of light in the sky is the sun? Nah, I thought that was someone’s really big idea.”
- Abdi (Year 8)

“The sun is the moon. That’s why you never see them at the same time. That’s why they’re the same size.”

“I thought the sun was bruck in two and that’s why we have Venus.”

“Nah, everyone knows the sun is a natural satellite, that’s why it goes round the earth. I learnt that in science.”
- Abdi and Abdi (Years 12 & 13)

“We should all be aware of the sun. The sun is what happens when you don’t brush your teeth. The sun used to be white as the moon, but it didn’t brush after eating its undersized jellies and it went yellow.”
- Mr Abdi (Physics Teacher)
