After all that searching? I feel gypped.
I’ve lost all sense of adventure.
Well, according to one theory this sign is correct. Because of the shape of the universe, every point is the same distance to all edges, thus everywhere in the universe is the centre.
Wait… what? Explain this theory, because that makes no sense to me.
The theory goes as follows, Since no one can prove it isnt… therefore it is.
Sources: Danny Wallace and the centre of the universe
That’s a pathetic theory… the centre would be wherever the big bang was.
Assuming the universe is a four dimensional sphere, we would all be on the outside of it and could never get to the center. Or we could be in an endlessly repeating universe in which case all points would be the same distanece (infinity) from the proposed “center.” And the Big Bang didn’t take place in a specific location, seeing as how there wasn’t any space before the Big Bang.
I’ve never heard of the fourth dimensional sphere theory. The main theory I heard is that the universe is constantly expanding from the Big Bang’s point of origin.
According to most theories there exists no “point of origin.”
Yep… Universe is expanding from every point… There is no “point of origin”
Because I always know I can log onto the Cheezburger Network whenever I want to discuss quantum physics…
Wait, in what space of multi-dimensional spheres are you? Until we are perfecly sure about the shape and geometrical area of the universe (if infinite then there is no centre), we can do nothing about it.
Watch out if he farts, Big Bang.
Imposter! Clearly I’M the centre of the universe and IT revolves around ME! 
No, I’m poster!
Ha ha! *malevolent glare* You are not as post as me! I am poster than enyone! I am the postest!
To Hugh: “enyone!” It’s spelled “anyone”, you douche! Oh, wait. I’m Hugh… I’m a douche! AAARGGH!!!
Where’s the ‘Like’ button?
Oh… I’m not on facebook anymore, am I?
Obviously it doesn’t revolve around YOU…you can’t even spell CENTRE! I’ll bet you’re the kind of guy that spells that word that plays movies THEATRE!
Do you ever use spellcheque?
“Clearly I’M the centre”
“you can’t even spell CENTRE!”
Obvious fail troll has obviously failed.
Some countries spell it “center” while others spell it “centre”.
Lol spellcheque? that’s one I haven’t seen before!
Never mind. Obvious fail troll has still somehow succeeded…
No, that’s spelt CINEMA.
THEATRE is a correct spelling, dolt. The cinema is spelled ‘Theater’, while the action of being in a class or performing is spelled ‘Theatre’. I’m in a theatre class, been in theatre club for 5 years. I know this stuff.
Spell cheque? Was this meant as irony? And centre and theatre are the accepted spellings in the UK. Although American English has it’s roots in more traditional spelling and pronunciation, neither is wrong. Language constantly evolves and these particular spellings have been around since the 1800s, far before you were born.
You spell like a Brit! Ha ha. Silly Brit.
You sound like a racist moron! Ha ha. Silly git.
Do you mean “spell-check”?
As in the thing that checks your spelling?
A “cheque” is the thing relating to money.
Yeh but don’t the americans spell it “check” even when it’s the money type of cheque?
OK, now that is oddly specific.
if you ever need to prove solipsism, stand by sign.
it’s also wrong… the real center of the universe is in fremont.
I originally thought it was Ireland. If you look at a map of the world, Ireland is in the middle, and that is where Guinness is made, so I assumed, but I apparently assumed incorrectly. Also – they have really REALLY good coffee so you may be correct. I will think on this further – your idea intrigues me.
Oops I meant Fremont, somewhat near Seattle, has really good coffee. Maybe I should drink some.
I was going to say, of COURSE the center of the universe is Fremont. Doesn’t EVERYONE know that? Or just us Seattleites?
I’m a bit dissapointed, too… -.-
I’ve been there. I have a similar pic.
hey me too. wallace had a working brothel all the way into the 1980’s and is a pretty cool little town.
Hello, Center of the Universe!
This is in Wallace, ID I been there before… but…. it’s not the center of the universe unless the universe is… a rundown pos town
Yep, we were in Wallace, ID last year and took a similar pic. It’s an old silver mining town. Lots of antiques and good bar food.
I’m so tempted to photoshop myself into that picture….
I know it!
Center of universe is a ass black hole!
He’s let himself go somewhat…
only in Roosta’s universe…
I read about Wallace in Danny Wallace and the centre of the universe, Good read too
They reckon that since the centre of the universe could be anywhere, they reckon it’s on wallace… it’s not brilliant science, no, but it’s got its own charm
Hey, that guy took my spot!
(BTW, I know it wasn’t intentional, but the Roma, aka Gypsies, react to “gypped” about the same as Jewish people do to “jewed me down.”)
I was wondering how long it’d take for someone to mention the Gypsy bit.
One day. Now you know. 🙂
Crap! I hope my daughter doesn”t see this. It won’t be pretty.
If that guy is the center of the universe, how come I have NO IDEA who he is? O.o You think he would be all over the news, like a celebrity, with no private life at all. lol XD
HAHA! I live up the street from the center of the universe! This is my town, Wallace, ID!
Well, they say the universe is infinite, if it is, anyplace could be its center. I actually somehow even feel the big bang happened somewhere near our Sun.
I’m pretty sure the center of the universe is Fremont Washington. This is an impostor center of the universe… FAIL! It’s the Motto for crying out loud!
Oh gosh… Is this in Mississippi? 🙂 My pastor is from Mississippi and he says that it has been proven that it’s the Center of the Universe.
You wanna know how?
Well, if you stand there at noon the sun is DIRECTLY overhead, and the horizon is at equal distances around you! XD
This is in Wallace, Idaho. Cute little town, went there last year on a road trip. The state was trying to demolish the town to build a super highway and the Mayor said that since it cannot be disproven that the center of the universe is in Wallace then it must be, in Wallace. Thus they cannot pave over something as EPIC as the center of the universe and the state had to build the highway on the side of the mountain and the town of Wallace, Id. was saved.
hm, is this the Total Perspective Vortex on Frogstar World B?
You’re all wrong!! Outside of the universe is a giant rainbow dolphin.
Is it just me, or is the sign ‘shopped?
It depends what you mean by center. It could have any of these meanings:
1. Spacial center of the universe (if the universe is a finite size, else the center is either nowhere or everywhere depending on the circumstances.)
2. Location of the big bang
3. Most inportant thing in the universe
4. The shopping center of the universe
5. Any of various sports positions for the universe’s team
Er, not “depending on the circumstances;” “depending on the way you see things” is what I ment there. I haven’t a clue how I made that mix-up.
the center of the universe is obviously Narnia
Worst photoshop edit I’ve ever seen
Hey! I’ve been here! I took a picture just like this!
I just looked this up on google maps, and I SWEAR TO GOD the car that guy is standing in front of, is the exact same car that’s shown on google street views.
That must be one of the google crew or something.
What about me?
the center is at your moms p*ssy
