TIL - The UK sits under 5 different air masses, creating unpredictable weather patterns and mimicking both tropical and polar climates. Although on the same latitude as Canada the UK often gets rain instead of snow throughout the year and humidity compared to that of a rainforest in summer. bbc.co.uk/news/magazine-2…
TIL that New Zealand has an official Wizard. He was initially threatened with arrest because of his antics, but after being named a living work of art and performing a successful rain dance during a drought, the PM named him The official Wizard of NZ, Antarctica, and relevant offshore areas. en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The…

Phyllis, when she watches the documentary and realizes no one wanted to hear her thoughts on the rain.
Sorry about the weather everyone, I selfishly organised a BBQ thus guaranteeing rain nationwide.
The big push to make cycling THE way of commuting in our everyday lives, forgetting that Britain spends most of the year with rain.
I dunno about you lot, but when I used to live further away from work the days it was raining were the days I was not cycling to work.

Who’s spirit animal is the bird watching John meant to be? Because Arthur’s is a deer or wolf/coyote, and Eagle Flies’ spirit animal is an eagle which is why Rains Fall sees a eagle in the credits.
All sodding week I've been promised a big thunder storm with tons of rain by the BBC and the Met Office. All I sodding got was one rumble, a spec of rain and sticky humid air afterwards.
What is your favorite video game rain?
I love the atmosphere of rainy days in video games. Between the music that typically plays and the constant patter of rain drops I just find it incredibly satisfying and relaxing. I love just running around and soaking in the atmosphere. Open world games especially are built for this.
The game that made me think of this is Xenoblade Chronicles: Definitive Edition. I am currently going through this right now and love when it rains. I just zoom the camera all the way out and appreciate the world. Nothing better than a rainy day in Gaur Plains or Eryth Sea.
Other titles in which I remember specifically loving the rain are Stardew Valley and Persona 5. What are your favorite 'video game rains'?

IsItBullshit: People with autism / savant syndrome can have insane abilities like in the movie Rain Man
A list of things the autistic character did in the film:
Memorize every single name and number pair in a phone book from A to G (in just one night)
Perform 4-digit by 4-digit multiplication instantly
Was able to count exactly 246 toothpicks on the floor in a matter of seconds (he was correct)
Counted cards accurately in a casino while playing six deck blackjack
I do believe people with autism / savant syndrome can do amazing things that normal people cannot, but some of the things in Rain Man just seem downright impossible.
Edit: Thanks for the responses they were very interesting! I just wanted to clarify that I am aware of the rarity of savantism and special abilities among autistic people. I did not mean to imply that they ALL have some kind of crazy talent. Sorry if anyone found this offensive.
I wish rain would just fall all at once instead of in drops.

Anyone predicted this wonderful, beautiful rain?
I’m not complaining, but how come it wasn’t in any forecast I’ve seen? At least my wife’s elbow was correct again.

An Indianapolis Police officer groped a woman while detaining her. She recoils from his touch and is beaten for it. I've seen police beating women on camera all week. Her defiance as batons and pepperballs rain down on her is chilling. youtube.com/watch?v=ku6lx…

Rain is awesome and shouldn’t be associated with sadness.
I don’t understand why in every cartoon, rain is associated with sadness. There’s always that sad kid that has the little rain cloud above his head. Rain is a break from the norm. It’s fun and unpredictable. It makes everything a few degrees cooler. Some of my best memories as a kid is running from the store to the car in the rain with the cold wind in my face.
Edit: I’m from Arizona and we don’t get much rain here so I’m pretty biased.

If Creepers are in rain/water, they take longer to explode
When a creeper is in water or rain, it will take longer than normal to explode, around 3 seconds longer. The explosion is less powerful, and only destroys in a 2 block radius compared to the normal. This is called a "semi-defused" state.
Inversely, if a Creeper goes into soul fire, it will immediately explode with a power of a charged creeper/bed explosion in the Nether. Unlike a charged creeper, this will not drop mob heads.
One year ago today Rutger Hauer passed away. He gave us Etienne Navarre (Ladyhawke), William Earle (Batman Begins), John Ryder (the Hitcher), Hobo (with a Shotgun) and Roy Batty (Bladerunner). He also added the famous line "All those moments...will be lost in time, like tears in rain" to the script. radiotimes.com/news/film/…

AITA for throwing a friends things on the lawn and making him walk 6 blocks home in the pouring rain
So for the past few weeks I (20 F) have had a friend (25 M) staying with me while his apartment was fixed from a flood in their building. He is extremely controlling and from the second he moved in took it upon himself to make things go his way or no way.
He tells me that my diet is unhealthy and proceeded to throw away every food he said was unhealthy. White bread. Chocolate milk and 2 percent milk. Any sort of meat product. Anything with added sugar. He did this without asking. He barges into my room every morning at 6 am including weekends to try and make me excercise as apparently I'm lazy. I'm talking full on cardio workout at 6 am. If I refuse he will blast his music and leave my door open. And when I get up to close it he tells me since I'm up I have no excuse. I do yoga every day and am in great shape but that's apparently not enough.
The last straw was when he went through my medicine cabinet and FLUSHED my medicine. I suffer from debilitating migraines that can cause seiz
