My neighborhood pool is a 99 year old abandoned rock quarry, which has been converted into a massive chlorinated swimming pool. by WeekendHoliday5695 in interestingasfuck

Lol it's just weird because you act like Kentucky is some massive shit hole when it's not even one of the worse states in it's region. It borders West Virginia for Christ's sake. AND Missouri. Kentucky has a Democratic governor and some excellent cities. You don't know shit about Kentucky.

I'm not from Kentucky, and what you actually said was "Damn life is suddenly much less funny and a lot more sad if OP moved to Kentucky." That's absolutely not the same as "I would never live there". You found out a person was living in Kentucky and said this went from funny to sad because it's Kentucky. Let me guess, you're a liberal from the East or West Coast who thinks anyone south of the Mason Dixon line is an ignorant hick and anyone in Middle America is a backwoods farming moron. Have you ever even fucking been to Kentucky you fact regurgitation machine? Or did you look up a couple random stats and decide the whole state was worthless because they have a bad economy as if the entire fucking country isn't backsliding into the Dark Ages. Go touch some Kentucky bluegrass and then tell me how miserable your fucking experience was.

It's from 2020, only two have been installed. It also turned out they malfunctioned during cold weather and the opacity took longer to kick in.

Throwing a pound of sodium metal into a river by smooth_vesselHPAUM in interestingasfuck

[–]scottonaharley 3299 points3300 points  (0 children)

When sodium is introduced to water a vigorous exothermic reaction occurs. Here is the chemical equation:

2Na + 2H2O -> 2NaOH + H2

In this reaction, molecules of sodium (Na) react with water molecules (H2O) to produce sodium hydroxide (NaOH) and hydrogen gas (H2).

Normally sodium is stored submerged in kerosene to prevent chemical reaction with the oxygen in the air.

50 years ago I was assigned sodium as my element to report on in school. LOL. That knowledge finally came in handy!

Every country is free to enact its own laws.

Countries so concerned about the death penalty should stop doing business with Singapore.

Mark that nsfw so it's blurred. You have to warn a person before you show them pictures of people with holes in them. Sure it's interesting, but not everyone's cup of tea.

Beautiful moment when a friendly Whale suddenly appears and says hi - Puerto Madryn, Argentina by SinjiOnO in interestingasfuck

[–]bradland 950 points951 points  (0 children)

I think he may have a better understanding of the danger they’re in. The average water temperature where they’re at is 13.3°C (56°F). That’s not exactly extreme hypothermia risk territory, but cold water shock is real. Most people who die in cold water incidents drown before they get hypothermia.

He’s not wearing any sort of flotation device, and I presume she isn’t either. I also do not see a leash. If the whale were to accidentally flick their paddle board the wrong way, they could be separated from it by 30m pretty quickly.

The most dangerous scenario would be if the whale’s tail partially submerged the board. The board’s buoyancy would cause it to go shooting out of the water.

I know this sounds like Chicken Little nonsense to a lot of people, but I grew up around the ocean, and have lost more than one friend to the water. It demands our respect.

Don't believe everything you read on the internet just because there's a picture with a blurb next to it.
