Stars are a bit of a forgotten middle child in our studies (at least, speaking as a cosmologist/galaxy formation-ist). This is unfortunate, because they are very interesting laboratories of very interesting physics at many scales. In this MASS talk I will seek to take a leisurely stroll through stellar astrophysics, and stop once in awhile to take a look at some neat stuff, with no real intention of covering particular topics.It should be an enjoyable way to spend a spring afternoon.
