Prepared to be blown away. In a fascinating attempt at putting our everyday lives in proper perspective, the humor blog Wait But Why compiled a series of timelines growing in scale with each successive period, starting from the last 24 hours to the history of the universe since the Big Bang, which reveal a humbling perspective on just how minuscule our average lifespan is, and even the entire history of humanity itself, in comparison to the enormity of the age of the universe as we know it.

Happy Pi Day!
