You can feel how cathartic this must have been for someone
  • Drive thru. This is actually a common spelling in the US.

  • What ridiculous history fact is your favorite?
  • I find it fascinating that electricity is fast enough that this is a thing. You would never get this wrong with water, and if you did things wouldn’t work right, but electricity is basically instant.

  • A pair of male and female cardinals arguing about seeds 🥰
  • That makes me a little sad, but it’s good to know!

  • Which adaptation do you think has surpassed its source material in quality?
  • I’d rather the five released ASOIAF stay as they are, perpetually unfinished than anything close to the hatchet job that was the GoT show ever be released in book. For me, sometimes just finishing isn’t enough. The books > than the show 10,000 times.

  • In your country, what "common" animals are tourists most excited to see?
  • It is a fox with some long long legs! Neat!

  • 77% of Top Climate Scientists Think 2.5°C of Warming Is Coming—And They're Horrified
  • There is a problem of lag. By the time temperatures are high enough to force the economy to stop, the amount of CO2 will be sufficient to continue pushing the temperature up considerably.

  • US Senate approves $95bn aid for Ukraine, Israel and Taiwan
  • If that’s the compromise it takes to get support where it is needed then so be it. The US has plenty to go around and Israel is going to do what they will do with or without our help.

    World marathon record holder Kelvin Kiptum dies after car crash in Kenya

    What a sad day for the world of running and the world in general! He had so much potential ahead of him. Holding the world record marathon and being only 24! I’d have loved to see what greatness he would have achieved. RIP

    Biden Threatens to Veto Bill That Would Help Israel but Not Ukraine
  • Also Gaza is the size of basically just one neighborhood inside of Kiev alone. The scale of two the conflicts are so massively different. Many Americans I’ve discussed this with have no idea how much bigger Ukraine is.

  • Brazil records its hottest ever temperature
  • Maybe nuclear winter doesn’t sound so bad anymore…

  • Elephants have names for each other, just like humans
  • I remember this being a known thing with dolphins too, but maybe that’s just one of those things you learn as a kid and trust forever

  • In very rare move, Pope dismisses conservative US bishop Strickland
  • I think all you need to know about this guy is the Vatican asked him to resign a few days ago and he said no. You do not say to no to that sort of thing! He absolutely knew they would remove him and instead of going quietly he said no to make it a big thing. I wouldn’t be surprised to see him running for office, or starting his own break off sect of “true Catholics” soon. Good riddance.

    A spacecraft to deorbit ISS 'not optional,' claims NASA safety panel
  • It would be nice if we could boost it up to some sort of high storage orbit. Then it could hang out there until we have the technology to drag it down to a museum on the moon or something. Maybe a SpaceX starship will be able to do it before the station reaches end of life.

  • Amid massive search for mass killing suspect, Maine residents remain behind locked doors
  • Geraldine Largay, “Inchworm”, was a hiker who went missing off the Appalachian Trail in Maine and died in 2013. It took two years for them to find her body, and it was found only a couple of miles from the trail. Those woods are so thick. If he’s dead if could be a long time until he is found.

    Love the sunset theme!

    That is all. There are so many great themes, but sunset is rocking. Thanks for putting so much work into this app, it’s come so far in just a few days! I’m in awe.

    Excessive heat reaching unsafe levels

    It’s only June! Also, have we gotten warnings like this before? I’ve lived here all my life and I honestly don’t remember getting texts for heat, only storms and cold.

    Would you prefer a route that is…?

    Let’s say you have a loop route. In one direction it’s mostly gently, but consistently and perceptively, uphill with several big descents and in the other direction it’s mostly gently downhill with several big climbs. Which direction do you pick?

    I tend to pick the generally downhill route. I’d rather get my climbs over quickly on steep hills than slog it out going slowly uphill over a long distance.

    Shorts always ride up on one leg.

    It’s hot again, which means it’s chafing season. One thing I’ve noticed is that my running shorts always ride up on my left leg, and only my left leg. Multiple pairs, different brands and styles, it doesn’t matter. I get much worse chaffing on that leg. I use Body Glide or Squirrel’s Nut Butter religiously and can manage it alright, but I’m wondering about why my shorts always ride up on just that one leg. Is that normal? Does that happen to you? Could it say something about my gait? Or maybe my thighs just aren’t even in size? Thanks

    What is this about? (Sidebar)

    I keep seeing memes from this community in my global feed so I look to the sidebar to see what’s up and all I see is it’s the equivalent of Reddit’s /r/196, but I don’t want to go to that site and look at their info! What’s up?

    (This is my post, rule #1 btw.)

    Okay, what’s the worst collected specimen you’ve ever seen?

    How about a lactic acid in a grey on ice - a grey urine culture boric acid tube that is! Took me a second to even grasp what had happened, “why is that a solid clot?”

    Happy Father’s Day!

    My wonderful wife and mother of my child got me flowers. It’s not exactly the most manly thing, but nobody has ever gotten me flower before, and it makes me feel so happy and appreciated! Hope everyone has a great one!
