Truth is stranger than fiction.

That Saturn pic is so weird, that I don't like it. I know it's backlit form the sun, and I read that what we see on the planet is a reflection from the rings, but it's still looks so... weird. The whole thing looks so unreal.

Not that I think they faked it, it's just... whoa.

Looks like that was enhanced. Still an amazing shot though!

It's probably not a reflection, but rather scattered light from the rings.

Yeah, because 10 divided by 2 is 5.

That's like saying take any number, add 1, subtract 2, add 1, and you always have the same number.

Word problem time!
If any number equals X then the above statement converts to:
(X*2+10)/2-x=5
If this statement is true for only one value of X we will be able to solve for that value. If its true of any value, it will disappear into a nonsense statement like X=X, 0=0 or something like that. So . ..

(X*2+10)/2-x = 5
(X*2+10)/2 = 5+X
X*2+10 = 2*(5+x) = 10+2X
2X+10 = 2X+10
2X = 2X
X = X
QED It works for any value of X

We could do that ourselves by carefully crafting a simple equation and doing a bit of algebra on it to disguise it.

Here, which also has annotated versions of the picture which point out Earth, Venus and Mars, and some of the moons of Saturn.

Anthony Bourdain featured that show when he visited Tokyo in Parts Unknown. He said it was the greatest show he'd ever seen.
