btw,
the lyrics in Matt Nathanson’s song, Weight of It All, are pretty and nice to sing along to… but it’s a fallacied metaphor:

Show me where the sun comes through the sky,
I’ll show you where the rain gets in

Pretty. but wrong.

Comments on rain doesn't come through where the sun shines

    it does make sense. Think about it.
    You try and should me optimism but showing where the sun comes through the sky and in turn I can be cynical and show you were the rain gets in, along with hurricanes and what else

  2. I understand what it means. and it’s pretty. and I like it a lot.

    But.. sun comes through the sky except when blocked by clouds. Sun shines through holes in the clouds. Rain doesn’t fall through holes in the clouds. Rain falls from the clouds.

    And he says “through the sky”, so we’re not referring to a skylight window or sunroof, where sunshine can come through but so can rain.

    If meant in general, then yes the sun comes through the sky and so does the rain and hurricanes… and the geese and the falcons and the wind and the rainbows and the sounds of trains in the distance and happy vibes from across town.

    I still like the quote. I still think the sun gets in between where the rain falls.

  3. Telegraphic Eagerness & Telescopic Sameness

    If a photon passes through a waterdrop…is there any way to finish that thought correctly, yet unboringly?

  4. If a photon passes through a waterdrop, does it get wet?
