Dear 100 Hour Board,
Is it really fair that Jupiter is so much bigger and has so much more influence than the Earth? What does this say about life?

A: Dear anonymous,
Yes it is fair, and why do you sound so defensive about it? I assume, since you related it to its size, that when you say "influence" you are talking about it's gravitational pull. Ooh, I'm scared of the big, bad Jupiter! Don't you think it would be humiliating for a huge planet to be suject to the same gravity that a puny planet is subject to? May I remind you that both Earth and Jupiter travel around the same sun? That feels pretty fair to me.
This tells us that ours is a God of order.
