I should be cleaning the apartment right now. Got visitors coming and it’s my duty as a responsible member of society to make sure the toilet is as shiny as a disco ball.
The closet where I keep my vacuum cleaner and mop and such is about 4 meters away.
The GN-z11 galaxy is 13.39 light years away and still I’m sitting on my computer and searching images of it. And not cleaning.
That’s RELATIVITY OF DISTANCE for you.
