TIDBITS

1) Ancients civilizations worshiped the Sun. The Sun was round back then.
2) The Sun is still round, except maybe during total eclipses or when the Sun is totally obscured by clouds. Then it could be rectangular. Who knows? This worrisome thought is why NASA is sending a mission to the Sun; to see if it ever changes its shape.
3) The ancient Romans and Egyptians always honored their Sun god during mealtimes. by making their soup bowls round like the Sun. Round smiley faces also honor the round sun. ☺
