I mean, yeah it's pretty cool that he didn't die but the rate of survivability for lightning strikes is way higher than you would possibly imagine (about 90%). It's actually pretty rare for someone to die.
His name was probably more in the spirit of "Happy Herdsman" than "Homosexual Sissy"
The word coward and the name Coward have different etymologies.
> the word coward comes from the Latin coda meaning tail and the old French coart.
> The suffix -ard (or -art) also comes from Old French and is typically pejorative or derogatory, as seen in the words braggart, drunkard, buzzard, and bastard
from this reddit post
The surname Coward comes from Old English cowherde which meant "herdsman". Source

They’re pretty cheap too no brand I bought them like 2 years ago I’m sure there’s newer versions
That fucking novice wine key.
Everyone buys that damned thing because it looks like it would be so easy. No muss, no fuss, just straight pulling action. Even an idiot could use it.
That thing is fucking garbage. Throw it in the bin where it belongs and never buy another. I'm serious.
I used to bartend and wait tables at a high end restaurant. When I say I've opened thousands of bottles of wine, I'm not exaggerating. When I say it feels like I must have thrown out just as many of these goddamn fucking stupid cork pullers from the drawers of friends, family, and significant others, I'm only slightly exaggerating.
I've used every type of wine opener on the market. I have exactly one type in my home. They all are riffs on this design. Cheap or expensive, they all work the same and just as effectively. My favorite one is currently missing, but it was just a promotional freebie given to me fifteen years ago by a wine rep and though it's a little worn and loose it still pulls corks just as well as it did the first time I used it. In all my life, I've only broken one and it was a super cheap model that cost under $5. It still opened a dozen or so bottles before it gave out.
Here's how you use it. It's simple. It requires very little effort, even on bottles of Muscat with extremely outsized corks that are impossible to pull with all but a few corkscrews. Fits in a pocket. Every person on the planet that opens more than a bottle of wine a day owns and uses this tool as their primary weapon.
Why don't you own one already?
Just so you know, Google Photos has a feature where you take 4 photos of a physical picture(one each corner), and it will stitch them together into one really nice quality photo and save it in the cloud.
EDIT: Link to the app/feature: https://www.google.com/photos/scan/
Video of how it works: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MEyDt0DNjWU
Supposedly they will be rolling out tech soon to colorize black and white photos.
You could combine that kit with one of the other kits for cloning your dick and balls and an unsuspecting victim might not ever know, other than some disgusting tasting chocolate....
You should've bought one of these.
I have that exact same model fridge which was surely designed to get water in the floor. Almost every day it dumps water in the floor.
Fixed the switch issue myself, the part is very cheap on Amazon, like $2 cheap. I’ll send a link if you want.
Edit: Amazon link below for switch I used to fix my LG fridge for this water switch after pulling out the part and looking up the model # online, $6. Apparently it’s also for used microwaves.

You can easily bypass that with a breaker bar and a larger size socket than the locking lugnut. For the socket, you just have to find a size that makes an extremely snug fit when you hammer it on.
Also, I'm pretty sure thieves that are stealing entire sets of wheels from cars already bought quicker tools to bypass them, like master lug nut key sets that can be bought from your local auto store or Amazon (https://www.amazon.com/STEELMAN-78537-16-Piece-Locking-Master/dp/B00JF5F420) to remove them.
Buy something like this - https://www.amazon.ca/eXtremeRate-Classics-Handheld-Controller-Replacement/dp/B07T6LYX67/ - its about 8 small screws, a bit of a pain but if you take it slow its not that bad, ive swapped quite a few of them.
Although, they dont come with rails(metal part that slides into the switch). So if you rail is damaged beyond use, then you might be SOL
For anyone else who is interested. I guess the idea was that you would be safe in the car, but the car would still be damaged by the strike.

The bass player, Brad Smith, wrote the song and he specifically said that it wasn't about drugs. It's just about not wanting to get out of bed and face the day:
> So the song is about not being able to get out of bed and find excuses to face the day when you have really, in a way, nothing. It was like rock bottom. I wasn't even on drugs or drinking. It was just tough. It was just a tough point in my life. And the cool thing about that song, I think a lot of people do interpret those lyrics properly and can connect with it on that level, where "I don't understand why I sleep all day and I start to complain that there's no rain." It's just a line about, I'd rather it be raining so I can justify myself by laying in the bed and not doing anything. But it's a sunny day, so go out and face it.

You can find a good comparison here. Like many others on Reddit, I'd recommend NordVPN but you can check for yourselves depending on what aspects you deem most important
Many German manufacturers use wheel bolts that screw into the rotor as opposed to rotors with studs that use wheel nuts. I know that’s a terrible explanation, so here’s an example.
VPNs as a whole are not banned outright but certain popular VPNs does suddenly get blocked from time to time, especially on politically sensitive occasions like when the National People's Congress meets. Chinese wall climbers either have to extra resourceful during those times or just wait it out.
It's very hard for China to ban VPNs outright purely from a technological standpoint. ExpressVPN and NordVPN both get banned occasionally but they tend to find a gap in the Great Firewall pretty quickly. China would love to prevent the average citizen from using VPNs but right now they cannot enforce it but they're trying.
It's also impossible for companies that has an international scope to operate without using blocked portions of the inernet so VPNs are necessary at the corporate level. China has however banned corporations from using VPNs that are not registered with the government in 2017.
Basically it's a legal gray area. It's not outright illegal but the government tries to limit it as best as they can and generally just try to make using VPNs unpleasant for users so that they give up.
I’m a Brit living here and it’s by far and away the hardest and worst thing about living in China.
I have 3 separate paid VPN accounts because they all come and go at different times; ExpressVPN is probably the most reliable (and works with Netflix) but of late isn’t great off WiFi. At the moment they’re all slow and unreliable, because it’s the 70th anniversary of the founding of the PRC so the government is clamping down hard.
I have to say though, China is a beautiful country, with amazing, friendly people and it’s full of incredible experiences. We only get a very negative view of it in the West (which although justified because of past and current atrocities) does somewhat cloud us form a vast country, which is an amazing place to visit.
From memory, there was a fuel truck which spilled on the highway - and dipshit in the black car drove right over the evaporating fuel and set it off.

There is a federal agency whos sole job is to accept damaged currency, determine its value (51% of the bill must be intact) and return that value to the customer for free. So if your life savings are damaged in a fire, if your cow eats a $100 bill, or if your crazy grandpa left your inheritance buried in the ground unprotected with only a treasure map in his will, this agency has got your back. All free of charge.
What this does is help increase confidence in the US dollar which generates way more value than the relatively small cost it takes to fund this agency.

This happened in Reykjavik, Iceland. The street is Sólvallagata, close to/opposite the corner of Ljósvallagata, just by a large cemetery named Hólavallakirkjugarður. Right here. There's a similar-ish silver car right where it was sitting too.
Looking at the date on the ticket (where it says 'dagsetning'), it looks like it says 29-11-10. Which fits with around the time that the oldest versions of the images get picked up by image search engines at the start of December 2010. Looking at the historical exchange rate here, 5000kr ISK to USD would have been USD $43.036667. So pretty bang on.
There's no way the bag had time to reach whatever its terminal velocity is. According to this calculator, it was most likely going between 50-60 km/h or 32-37mph. Still significant, but nowhere near your figure.
Honestly a tab manager browser extension would improve your life. You can save groups of tabs together as lists, organize them any way you'd like, and name the lists for easy reference. You can even share a list of tabs to another device via a link or QR code. No need to ever close out all those tabs again without keeping them in a list for ease of access later.
The one I use is called One Tab (Chrome), but I'm sure there are plenty of competitors to choose from as well.

Because the bass player wrote the song when he first moved to LA, before the band even existed. He'd play the song while busking on Venice Beach. He was by himself, in LA, with no money, depressed and wondering if he was making the right choice to pursue a music career. The song was simply about him not wanting to get out of bed and face the day. He specifically stated in an interview that the song was not about drugs:
>So the song is about not being able to get out of bed and find excuses to face the day when you have really, in a way, nothing. It was like rock bottom. I wasn't even on drugs or drinking. It was just tough. It was just a tough point in my life.

I actually learned this approach from a book, “The Luck Factor”, by Richard Wiseman. Highly recommend it.
One of the most interesting ideas was that people who believed themselves lucky were (1) reinterpreting past events to find the luck in them, and (2) always trying little variations on their daily routines—like driving to work a different way now and then—to see what new things might be around them. This mindset cost almost nothing, and made them more likely to stumble on opportunities. The Luck Factor by R. Wiseman

Could be worse. Could've come home to find the entire house looking like that. Count your blessings it's only a model of a death ray and not a full sized, bird torching one.
Your car is a faraday cage though, so yes it’s a safe place to be during a lightning storm. If it gets struck like this car did, it will damage the car but the occupants will not be electrocuted.
For those who thought cars are safe havens in lightning storms, you’re mostly right.
However, not all cars are created equal in this respect. Cars can be seriously damaged by a lightning strike, as this picture shows.
If you can’t get inside a building, it’s a good idea to get into a car. Avoid touching any metal. Since lightning can pretty much total a car, you don’t want to get hit while cruising at 75 mph.
In a stationary car, though, you stand a pretty good chance of escaping serious bodily harm if the car gets hit by a bolt of lightning.
Fuckin' SAME. It looks like a fun time, but I've got kids and a wife and a house and shit, and I WILL get addicted to that, and I WILL throw all of that away to do more coke. If I ever get some sort of incurable illness though, I'm going out in an Aldous Huxley type blaze of glory.

Baggie after baggie of devils dreadlocks come and go and I don't even remember how many hits I've had until suddenly like $10 worth (like 20 bags!) is gone and I'm laying in a pile of my own sauce wondering why my wife is so angry with me.

"Due to the high rate of inflation in Venezuela over the last few years, there is a high demand in the market for US Dollars (USD). However, official access to US Dollars in Venezuela is limited, which has resulted in a third (unofficial) black market exchange rate valued at around 40,000 VEF/USD (November 2017). The black-market rate has increased rapidly over the last year (January 2016: 833, June 2016: 997, January 2017: 3164, June 2017: 6112)."

Source: almost killed myself slipping off of Glen Onoko Falls in PA because one year there was a drought when we climbed to the top of the falls and you could literally walk to the edge because it was completely dry, minus a small stream of water flowing off of it. Well the next year, nope, when running up stepped in the few inches of water, slipped immediately, and landed on my ass while sliding towards the edge. I stopped a couple feet in front of the edge and backwards crawled and got the fuck out. Fuck that was stupid. Some poor couple was sitting behind me enjoying the moment and I came in and they almost watched a person die. I ruined their moment, and they left shortly after.
Apparently they closed it bc too many people were dying or getting hurt badly. It was a gorgeous hike.

Get a Virtual Machine, and then download an Older Version of an Apple OS, and install the games you've bought onto the VM. That will at least preserve your purchases.
Yes, I'm just as mad as you on how and why consistently, expensive games lose support on an OS upgrade, this isn't the first Apple OS to knock out games.
I use VMWare Fusion, but Oracle has a Free VM: Virtual Box, and you can download an old OS from Apple, although they make it hard to find too.
Apple should STOP SELLING GAMES if it's this bad at support.
I feel Apple's OS group must have been cut to shreds. Like the Feature DROP in the new Music app to. Apple Music doesn't allow you to download songs to USB so you can load in your car. It fights you on building a Playlist of High bit rate songs, other than 256k. It doesn't have Genius genre support any more....

Many careers have been made because a photographer or videographer just happened to stumble upon a major event as it unfolded, and capture it for all to see. The chances of this happening, however, are few and far between – many professionals have gone a lifetime without such luck. But, not so for filmmaker Aristomenis (“Meni”) Tsirbas, who has captured several OMG moments, including a roller-coaster as it derails, a helicopter getting sucked up into a tornado, a close-up UFO encounter, a glimpse of a secret prototype vehicle in flight, and a near miss as two jets almost collide during takeoff and landing, respectively. And, that’s just for starters.
So, what is the secret to Tsirbas’s uncanny ability of being at the right place at the right time? LightWave 3D.
You see, although the videos are totally believable, they are, in fact, all-CG, created inside a computer. And it is this combination of photorealism and outlandishness that have earned the filmmaker and his viral videos a large following on Tsirbas’s YouTube channel.
Tsirbas has been creating the viral videos for the past year in his spare time, using LightWave Version 11.5.
>Yep that's my animation. Just a little dynamics test with some cheesy drama thrown in to keep me interested while learning particles. I'm not too happy with the tornado because the voxel system I used isn't very sophisticated. For my next try I'm going to switch to fluids on a different software package.
>Thanks for all the feedback BTW.
I listened to a really great podcast about the payment side of healthcare. I highly recommend it to anyone complaining about the system.
It talks a lot about how there are different pricing schemes based on who is paying. Another topic I found compelling is how the pricing we see in bills like this reflects a large percentage of people who just won't pay.
In my mind I feel like we have all the trappings of a single payer system with just a discombobulated payment scheme where those who are wealthy enough to pay but too poor to negotiate bear the brunt of the cost. We have the limited care options either being forced to seek standardized, government approved treatments in network and we have rationing due to people (like myself) who won't go because we're either too cheap or actually can't afford deductibles. You will receive emergency care you just won't like it.
