"Honey, does this sun make me look fat?"

On the surface of the sun I would weigh 4,203 lbs. That's over two tons!

That is, if the sun had a surface...

and if you didn't burn up before you reached its non existent surface.

Yes, I'm thinking there will be more urgent matters than my weight neuroses when it comes to alighting on the sun.

Besides the burning up, can you imagine how out of breath I'll be? There's no breath in space! Terrible place to go. Terrible.

Thad, do you remember when I knocked the wind out of you in 8th grade ballroom class? (This was before we were friends) you were dancing with Tony. I was practicing a spin and throwing my arm out. You were standing close to me and I wacked you right in the stomach and it took a while before you caught your breath again.

I think you would be even more out of breath than that if you tried to make it to the sun.

How would you get there? Do you have an Iron Man suit? Or can you fly like Superman?
