A light-year is a measurement of distance, not time...

The Milky Way Galaxy (probably the only galaxy you'll ever see stars from with your own eyes) is 100,000–120,000 light-years in diameter containing 100–400 billion stars. Stars live for a much, much longer time than it takes for the light to reach us (stars live about 3-15 billion years depending on size and brightness), so the exhaustive majority of stars are actually still there when you look at them. Also, a light year is a measurement of distance, not time.

Except that a lot of stars are older than the earth we live on and still plan on burning for atleast some thousand generations more.

light year is a measure of distance. "you're 3 miles late" doesn't make any sense

most stars will last from 100 million years to 100 billion years, depending on size, what it is made of and the intensity it burns at, the milky way is roughly 100-120 light years in diameter. We do not see stars outside of the milky way, so that means at an absolute maximum, a star we see is 120 light years away, that means what you are seeing is light from 120 years ago, not so long when compared to the humongous lifespan of stars. That means that unless you were seeing the last 120 years of a stars life (a minuscule point in time to the star) the star is still alive and well. That probably doesn't happen very often, almost all of the stars in our night sky are still alive.

Not to mention you wish upon a shooting star, which is a meteorite.

This quote annoys me for two reasons. One, a light year does not measure time. And two, this quote doesn't apply to all stars, only some. Pic related, it's alpha centauri A and B, not dead, and around 4.37 light years away (Closest stars to Earth behind Proxima Centauri)

a lightyear is a measurement of distance, not time, and a great number of the stars that you see are only a few thousand lightyears away, decidedly still alive

"You're a few million lightyears late." Well that's freaking retarded to use lightyears as a measure of time...
User avatar #21 to #4 - redrex (08/05/2013) [-]
well, a star a million lightyears away would take a million years for us to see it, i could kinda understand what they're saying

Just because it's been millions of years doesn't mean that the star died...

My Astronomy professor used this as a part of the class lecture, I lol'ed

Even short lived stars live for a 100 million years many last a lot longer. Also some of those stars are actually galaxies and have been around for the last 13.7billion years constantly recycling stars into new ones. Bitch get onto my time scale.

This post is older than those stars

Stars live for hundreds of millions of years, I'm not late at all.

you do know the sun is a star right
#8 - Womens Study Major (08/05/2013) [-]
Lightyears are a measure of distance not time you wouldn't be late.
#7 - Womens Study Major (08/05/2013) [-]
