TIL that after L.

Just a joke but, what if Mars has water on it because we used to live there and we messed up the climate so badly that we had to send an escape pod to earth with only Adam and Eve in it and the pod was the asteroid that wiped out dinosaurs?

TIL A Sperm whale can click at about 236 decibels, making it the loudest animal on Earth. Some researchers believe they can contact each other in the ocean even from opposite sides of the planet.

Pillars of the Earth taught me what books can do that a TV series never can
I followed up reading the book with a look at the highly regarded 8-part TV series, and it was like comparing a cathedral to a shoe box. Scenes with overwhelming emotional impact in the book (such as the death of Agnes) were rushed and flat. Tension and expectation threading through the pages were entirely lost in translation. I think the main difference is that a novel shows you want a scene really feels like from the inside by giving access to the characters thoughts and perceptions. Short of a voiceover which is almost always annoying and intrusive, the screen just can't do it - and that robs scenes of their emotional kick. Next is the ability to calibrate tension with the pace of the writing. A book can extend a single moment as long as it likes (say by describing what different characters are experiencing or the details of the scene) but the screen is stuck with the same speed, short of putting something in slow motion but that can't work for long, if at all. A book can als

The fact that we introduce dinosaurs to kids as a novelty at a young age makes them accepting of them without even questioning it. Imagine if you didn't know that giant beasts once roamed the earth prior to humans, and only found out when you were an adult with no childhood influences.

I finally did it ! 99 Runecraft in F2P with Earth runes (w/ stats & profit)
Hi everyone :D !
This is my stats (hours, XP, GP) from my very long RC trip. It took me nearly 10 months to accomplish (thanks to covid-19...) and I'm very proud of my accomplishment. I hope that it gives players motivation for their own objectives.
Have a nice day/night :) !

Wow, I wasn't expecting to get 2 platinum awards and 2 gold awards. Thanks everyone for these awards ! (Honestly, I was expecting a silver award, maximum a gold award).
Now, a small Q&A following the comments I have read :
Why did you craft earth runes instead of body runes ?
For profit mainly. My mindset in F2P is to find the best way for profiting in a single skill. I do this method with the others skills (Pure F2P and P2P).
**Why did I use rune essences instead of pure esse

The flat Earth subreddit really is something else
Imagine believing earth is flat simply because it feels and looks like flat
Stellaris has shown me how completely impossible those "aliens invade earth but earth fights back" movies and stories are.
Like, we've probably all seen Independence Day or stories like it - the aliens come and humans destroy them to live happily ever after.
But now that I've played Stellaris, I've noticed how completely stacked against us the odds would be. That "super-ship" was only one of a thousand, much larger vessels, armed with weapons and shields whose principles we can barely comprehend. Their armies are larger and more numerous than any we could field today, featuring giant mechs or souped-up energy weapons, or just bombardement from space.
Even if we somehow manage to blow up that one ship, the aliens will just send three, five, ten, a hundred, a thousand more. They'll stop by the planet and nuke it back into the stone age on their way to kill something more important.
Or maybe they go out of their way to crack our world as petty revenge, or because our ethics today don't align with their own and they don't want to deal with us later, or just because they hate everything that isn't them.

You discovered an asteroid, that could kill all life on Earth. How would you name it?
For Interstellar, Christopher Nolan flooded 63.8 million square miles of earth just for the film because he did not want to CGI the ocean in. After filming, he turned it around and sold the Pacific ocean and made back profit for the budget.
Jax player here. Why on earth is Jax being buffed? What is riot doing?
Jax is in a really good place right now, he's got a balanced winrate, he's good if you're good on him, and he isn't destroying games or anything.
Why would riot buff Jax at this point? He's gonna get out of control, and get nerfed again in two patches. This seems crazy, even for riot.

Dogs may use Earth’s magnetic field to take shortcuts. Over 200 hunting dogs were set loose and tracked via GPS. In 170/223 trips, dogs stopped before returning and ran 20m along a N-S axis.
