It's just not my day today.

I may have acted a bit…rashly in one of my earlier posts.  One of my other earlier posts. Not the earlier post that I mentioned in my other earlier post from earlier today. No, this earlier post was all about how many stars and galaxies there are in the universe.  As it turns out, according to this article my estimations, which were actually other people’s estimations first which displaces any blame from me and puts it solely on them, were slightly off. How slightly, you might ask. Only about 90%.

So, when I said

there were 125 billion galaxies in the universe.

What I really meant was

there were 237.5 billion galaxies in the universe.

Just a pittance of a difference. You can forgive me for the error, can’t you? I mean, it’s not like I didn’t convert inches to centimeters when determining rocket trajectory or left a scalpel in someone during surgery.
