rhube: rockyp77: GREAT SEA STORY The passenger steamer SS Warrimoo was quietly knifing its way through the waters of the mid-Pacific on its way from Vancouver to Australia. The navigator had just finished working out a star fix and brought Captain John DS. Phillips, the result. The Warrimoo’s position was LAT 0º 31’ N and LONG 179 30’ W. The date was 31 December 1899. “Know what this means?” First Mate Payton broke in, “We’re only a few miles from the intersection of the Equator and the International Date Line”. Captain Phillips was prankish enough to take full advantage of the opportunity for achieving the navigational freak of a lifetime. He called his navigators to the bridge to check double check the ship’s position. He changed course slightly so as to bear directly on his mark. Then he adjusted the engine speed. The calm weather clear night worked in his favor. At mid-night the SS Warrimoo lay on the Equator at exactly the point where it crossed the International Date Line! The consequences of this bizarre position were many: The forward part (bow) of the ship was in the Southern Hemisphere in the middle of summer.  The rear (stern) was in the Northern Hemisphere in the middle of winter.  The date in the aft part of the ship was 31 December 1899. In the bow (forward) part it was 1 January 1900. This ship was therefore not only in: Two different days, Two different months, Two different years, Two different seasons But in two different centuries - all at the same time! What an absolute ledge. : SS WARRIMOO EQUATOR INTERNATIONAL DATE LINE rhube: rockyp77: GREAT SEA STORY The passenger steamer SS Warrimoo was quietly knifing its way through the waters of the mid-Pacific on its way from Vancouver to Australia.

Trust your gut. Unless your gut is a dumbass.: embyrr922 pyrrhiccomedy ifshehadwings ovaadosedonconfidenc Intuition is real. Vibes are real. Energy doesn't lie. Tune in This is actually called thin slicing. Your brain recognizes patterns from very small "slices" of information by comparing them to things you have experienced betore. This all happens very quickly ona subconscious level without our conscious mind being involved. So intuition is actually really fast pattern recognition, and it can be very accurate. So yeah, if you have a gut feeling that a person or situation is not good, get the hell out. Your brain knows what's up When I was young - because l've always been a big skeptical pain in the ass I thought that when people were talking about interpersonal "energy," they were on some Gay Ass Shit. Years later, after spending hundreds of hours reading studies about intuition and neuroscience and pattern recognition and the processing power of the subconscious mind, I realized that that kind of talk - "she has such good energy," "you need to read the energy of the room," "l just got some really bad energy off of that guy - is a convenient shorthand for the lightning-rast, weirdly-accurate, real-as-fuck subconscious processing of the probability of positive or negative social outcomes likely to result from hundreds or thousands of variables. That "energy" isn't a tangible thing floating around in the air. It's your brain updating you constantly with information about your situation. Listen to it. Especially if it's telling you to be nervous or scared. Your brain is very good at recognizing danger. Let the enormous processing power of your subconscious mind protect you. It's better at spotting patterns than you are "Bad energy" isn't some hippie shit. It's your brain setting off a claxon because it knows something's not right. Thin slicing is wonderfully helpful, but be aware that if it's doing its pattern recognition from bad sources, you need to actively override it. We're raised in a racist society, inundated with racist media, and bombarded with subtly (or unsubtly) racist advice. Thin slicing can save your life, but it's also the cause behind the unconscious elements of racism (and misogynylableism/antisemitism/islamophobia/etc.) that we all suffer from Trust your instincts, but if your instincts tell you something that seems prejudicial, double check their work Trust your gut. Unless your gut is a dumbass.

Van Halen and the brown MMs: thesylverlining infernalpume darkfrog2 schizoauthoress Today 1 learned that Van Halen have that rider in their contract about "a bowl of M&Ms with all the brown ones removed" inn order to know at a glance if the promoter read the entire contract. And the reason they do THAT is because they once had a stage collapse because a promoter hadn't read the proper way to set up all the specific technical stuff. So if the band goes in the dressing room or catering and sees brown M&Ms, they know they have to double-check the stage setup for safety 1 heard about this on Freakonomics Radio. Turns out the bit about no brown M&Ms is HUGE, in BIG font, bold, underlined and quotated like they're on the Group W Bench. The band was all, "We have fifty-pound lights hanging over owr heads and fire being shot out of cannons. We had to know whether they read our safety regs so we didn't flamebroil any roadies." interesting how this has become a meme in the music industry about divas. i've always heard jokes that amount to "this stuck up celebrity hates the green gummy bears!! they're refusing to perform just for that??" and its reading stuff like this that i realise how that joke might have come about. people get grumpy that the band refuses to play but cant admit its because THEYRE incompetent, so they make it all about the M&Ms. another example of artists using a creative method to ensure they have a perfectly reasonable request fulfilled that is then bastardised by lazy people who wanna make money off them. this is like the music industry version of hearing the truth behind the McDonalds hot coffee lawsuit Van Halen and the brown MMs

Since most of the menu is sushi or sashimi, this left most of the menu unavailable to us. What we had was OK but the yakatori was not seasoned correctly (too little salt?) and the salad in the bento was basically unseasoned cabbage and maybe something else. Even the rice servings were small and not cooked well. They advertise "healthy" but I would recommend many of the other restaurants in the area as being just a:s healthy. Helpful?Share Response from the owner 2 weeks ago Hola Tim, i think you are confused. We are a scuba diving company and look at fish underwater, we don't eat them, as sushi, sashimi or any other way. We never have "too little salt" as we are scuba diving in the ocean which actually has a great balance of salt in the water. As for the "healthy" aspectI would go with a yes as we are a sport which in general is a healthy lifestyle right?

Mine would bang on the mirror every morning for his breakfast. It was just leaning against the wall and pretty flimsy so it was LOUD: lord-kitschener Obviously I want you to take care of your pets and make sure they get food and fresh water on a regular basis, but cats being huge drama queens and screaming hysterically at you and acting like they're tragic famine victims who haven't eaten in weeks and are about to drop dead from starvation right mcfuckin now because you're 10 minutes late feeding them is always going to be one of the funniest things to me artaeum the cat who lives at the vet clinic i volunteer at was mad yesterday because his dinner was half an hour late due to a busy day. he proceeded to go to all the (empty dw) garbage cans and tried to knock them over and started desperately scavenging for scraps of food because obviously no one loves him or cares about him and if he must eat garbage to survive then so be it instructionsfordancing not food related, but one time my cat cried at me for 20 minutes before i worked out that the reason why she was upset was because there was a coat hanger on her favourite cushion lord-kitschener This is absolutely beautiful and changed my life, thank you so much. Please protect her from hangers at all costs catsuggest wow. am STORVING and humaines here making joke laugh at cate honger ?! goldenmeme My cat is a social eater who is not food motivated at all, so I was baffled when I first got him because he didn't seem to care about food but he would SCREAM at me for hours when I knew his bowl was full. Any time l went to double check that he did indeed have food, he'd book it to the bowl and snarf like his life depended on it, but as soon as l walked away he'd follow me screaming again. Eventually I figured out that he just wanted a dining companion and was screaming about how we're a family and families eat together, god damnit! I moved his food bowl under my computer desk and it fixed the problem. But if I'm ever out for more than 12 hours I'll come home to find him in a passive-aggressive kitty huff because dinner has been ready for hours but he's been trying to be considerate (unlike some humans) and waiting for me to eat it. teashoesandhair Things my cat has cried at: I wouldn't let her jump on top of the burning hot stove .I moved my coat so that she couldn't scale the kitchen chair and jump on people's shoulders when they walked past I didn't scratch her cheek firmly enough She ate her entire meal allowance for the day in one sitting at 9am and was famished by 10am I didn't let her sit behind me on the toilet seat I wouldn't let her eat toothpaste I wouldn't let her eat the cork from a wine bottle I wouldn't let her eat the straw that my rabbit had pissed on . . .

Y'all will like and reblog my fucking Pewdiepie post 3000 times but you’ll sleep on this?? im literally disappointed If anyone had any doubt in their mind that this tangerine coloured horse-humper lies with every word he shits out of his mouth, here’s the man who hates Mexico and the Mexican people so much that he wants to build a modern-day Berlin Wall to surround their country trying to claim that he gives a shit about them Leaving hate aside, we do need help, Mexico was struck with a series of very hard earthquakes and two hurricanes in the past weeks, Media focuses on the hard stuff and the inmediate as well as the disasters in more developed countries like the US, the help is very needed. If you can, please donate, this are the  links where help is most welcome: UNICEF Mexico Red Cross Mexico OXFAM Mexico Save the Children (page in English) Global Giving (English) International Community Foundation (English) Project Paz Amazon Mexican Red Cross wishlist This one is in Mexican pesos with all the things that are needed. A peso is equivalent to almost .05 Dollars or Euros. And you can acceswith your Amazon account and make the conversion before payment. There are also things you can buy to help with less than a three dollars, maybe even less than one.  There is people trapped in buildings and  the death toll keeps rising, we have been hit hard before and have a group of very capable rescuers, the Topos (moles) of Tlatelolco that have helped when disaster has struck in other parts of the world, you can donate to them in here, donations even if small is a lot of help.  And if you can’t donate, please share this with the links. This is a bit of what the destruction in Mexico City and the other states looks like.  Pictures source: Fortune Oaxaca and Chiapas Thank you so much for providing useful links and information! Everybody please spread this like wildfire, spread the awareness, spread the help. Even if you can’t donate just help to let this informarion be known so other people will donate too! Hey to everyone who doesn’t speak spanish and is worried that these links might be fake or a scam, I just went into every one of them to double check and they’re all from official organizations that will make sure every penny you donate is given to the people who need it in Mexico. So please don’t be afraid of donating!

writertobridge: The claim that the PETS Act requires hotels/motels to shelter your animals is false. Let me explain. Why Was The PETS Act Passed? The PETS Act was signed into law on October 6th, 2006. The bill was brought forward after the events of Hurricane Katrina. Before and during Katrina, there were no evacuation measures for pets set in place when natural disasters occurred in the United States. None. At all. Because of that, it’s estimated that about 70,000 pets were left behind. It’s believed that 15,000 of them were killed. Images of families leaving their pets behind made international news. One in particular showed a young boy being torn away from his beloved dog, Snowball. Aftermath pictures showed dogs stranded on car roofs and cats swimming to get to safety. The loss and horror was so high, lawmakers decided that evacuation efforts for pets, as well as people, were necessary during future events. What Does The PETS Act Do? The Pets Evacuation and Transportation Standards Act allowed the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) to create guidelines for state and local emergency services to use in regards to pets and families with pets during natural disasters. If states wanted FEMA funding, they needed to create emergency plans that: Allows pets to stay in state or federally funded shelters during natural disasters. Allows families with pets to enter community shelters with their animals. Allows rescue operations specifically to save household pets and service animals. States that included pet rescue and relief efforts in their emergency planning would continue to get FEMA support. Community shelters that allow animals can even be reimbursed for their care later on. Why Does The PETS Act Not Apply To Hotels/Motels? The PETS Act only applies to government agencies. Hotels and motels are not government or state run entities. They are exempt from the law and are not required to shelter animals during natural disasters. It is not illegal for them to turn away pets if it is against hotel policy. Why Is This Important? Many people are reblogging the original post without checking how accurate the sources are, if any sources are even provided. Some people in the path of a hurricane may read and believe said information without finding out the truth until they arrive at a hotel. There were reports of a family having their dogs turned away from a hotel during Hurricane Harvey. Some families may choose to leave their pets in the car and stay into the hotel themselves. Others may lie and then sneak their animals in anyway. Others, still, may leave and try to find more accommodating shelter somewhere else. Either way, this is added stress to an already stressful situation. And it can be dangerous. If families decide to leave and look for different shelter, they could get stuck in flood waters. It only takes a few inches of water for cars to start floating. If they start floating, they can be dragged through the currents and into extremely flooded areas. Something like this happened during Hurricane Harvey. Six people in one van died because their car was submerged in flood waters after the family members tried to escape the area. During times like this, proper safety and shelter information is a must. You should always double-check everything before you reblog it when lives are on the line. You don’t know who’s reading it. You don’t know who will believe it. You don’t know what that misinformation will cost someone. : 22%A 1:13 PM Title If you are evacuating to a hotel/motel and they say they DON'T accept pets, don't get ugly, but simply tell them that is against the law & FEMA established that after Hurricane Katrina!
