If you got offered $1,000,000 but it meant that every traffic light you approach will be red, would you take it? Why or why not?
TIL that Thomas Young proved that light is a wave, described elasticity, capillary action, explained how our eyes focus and see color, compared the grammar and vocabulary of 400 languages, deciphered hieroglyphs and contributed to music theory.

Some light hearted Belarus content
In Mrs. Doubtfire (1993), the scene where Mrs. Sellner comes to inspect Daniel's apartment and the icing on Mrs. Doubtfire’s face is melting off was not intentional. The heat from the set lights melted the icing on his face and Robin Williams improvised the bulk of that scene.

The original has finally seen the light of day
YSK: If you are buying a used car, test drive it to the nearest auto-parts store to have it scanned for check engine light codes. Sellers can temporarily hide them to deceive you.
Not everyone is mechanically inclined enough to inspect cars but all major auto part stores (auto zone, advanced auto, o Reilly’s) all offer free scanners for you to borrow. YouTube how to do it and you could save yourself thousands. People who sell cars can be sketchy and are good are hiding previous damage or mechanical problems. Pro Tip: offer to meet at the sellers house/dealer and ask them to not start it because you want to do a “cold start” which is starting the engine right up after it’s been sitting. Lots of mechanical problems can ‘hide’ or ‘disappear’ once the engine is warmed up. Starting it cold gives you a much better idea as to how it’ll work when you bring it home the next day. Best of luck!
Neighbor won't turn his flood lights off
Some years ago we had some new neighbors move in next door. Nice enough people but we had a problem with them. The husband traveled a lot and his wife was afraid of just about everything, the dark, thunderstorms, you name it. The problem was the flood lights over their garage doors. She would leave them on all night, every night, even though you couldn't see them from inside of their house. They were positioned such that they would shine into our bedroom at night. We were not able to block them effectively with our curtains. We asked them politely several times if they could turn them off at night since they served no effective purpose. They adamantly refused. I offered to pay for a timer that would control them. No way they would consider it. I thought about taking the bulbs out, shooting them out with my pellet gun, etc. The solution that I arrived at was to simply loosen them up enough that they wouldn't come on. Since they couldn't see them from inside the house it was about 5-6 mo

Many catalysts should have received a revamped method of acquisition with Beyond Light, not be removed from the game indefinitely
By now I'm sure many people have either read or seen a video about the rather controversial TWAB post concerning content that will be going into the DCV with the release of Beyond Light. If you haven't, here you are:
Let's get down to it: Catalysts. Love 'em or hate 'em, they're part of Destiny. You get them, do one or more tasks, and they make a weapon better. The biggest problem with them has less to do with the effects they give, but how to obtain them. With Beyond Light, things are about to get a whole lot more... interesting...
As a recap, here are the catalysts going away in November:
- Bad Juju
- The Huckleberry
- Izanagi's Burden
- Legend of Acrius
- Polaris Lance
- Skyburner's Oath
- Sleeper Simulant*
- Outbreak Perfected*
- Whisper of the Worm*
- Worldline Zero*
What do I mean by "going away"? Well, here's what the post says:

What's up with the Trump administration trying to save incandescent light bulbs?
I've been seeing a number of articles recently about the Trump administration delaying the phase-out of incandescent light bulbs in favor of more efficient bulbs like LEDs and compact fluorescents. What I don't understand is their justification for doing such a thing. I would imagine that coal companies would like that but what's the White House's reason for wanting to keep incandescent bulbs around?

Typical reaction time is around 0.2 secs. It would be great to see who has the best reaction and the worst after each start. Or maybe just top 10.
Also, heart rates during different stages of the race would be nice. When cruising, when about to make a move etc.

TIL that the early versions of the Easy-Bake Oven, a child's toy that allows children to bake small treats, used incandescent lightbulbs as their heat source.

Beyond Light Release Window Update
We have made the decision to move the release of Destiny 2: Beyond Light to November 10.
As the first chapter in a new trilogy of expansions, Beyond Light is the beginning of a new era of Destiny 2. We have a powerful story to tell and incredible new features that we're really excited for players to experience. As always, our goal is to make the coolest, most entertaining expansion we can possibly make for our fans. To that end, we are doing what’s best for the game and moving the launch date.
The past few months have been a challenge and will continue to be during this pandemic. We’ve learned to create together in a new way, by having to work apart from one another. Despite these hurdles, we’re still committed to the same level of quality that our fans expect.
Over the coming weeks, we’ll be unveiling more of what we’re working on for Beyond Light and what that also means for Season of Arrivals, which will now ext
