TIL atomic tests were a tourist draw in 1950s Las Vegas. They advertised detonation times and best viewing spots to see the massive flash and mushroom cloud from the bomb test site, 65 miles away.

AITA for not giving my parking spot to a veteran
At my local grocery store, there are parking spots designated for pregnant/ new moms and veterans.
I’m about 32 weeks pregnant with twins, or 7 months for those of you who don’t speak pregnant. I had to go to the grocery store and as I was pulling up, I noticed one of those spots open and took it. As I was getting out of my car another car pulled up and told me I couldn’t park there because it was for veterans. I said it was for pregnant women and veterans, and I was one of those 2 so I could park there. Guy in the car essentially said I didn’t need to park there and he deserved it because he was a vet. He then pointed out some parking spots close by and told me to park there. I said I was already parked, out of my car and well within my right to park in a spot designated for both of us, and it wasn’t my fault I got to it first. I gestured to the parking spots he did and said he could park there, and walked around his car to enter the store. As I was walking in, a guy who heard the i

The CEO of a hardware company calls in his top ad man and tells him, "We need a new TV spot for our B&Q Nails line."
A week later, the ad man comes back with a videotape and pops it into the VCR in the CEO's office. The commercial starts and the CEO sees Jesus being nailed to the cross while a voice over says, "B&Q nails: they get the job done." The CEO is irritated and says, "That is completely unacceptable! We are NOT using that!"
A week passes, and the ad man returns with another tape. The new tape shows Jesus hanging on the cross in the background, and in the foreground a centurion turns to the camera and says, "B&Q nails: they hold anything!" The CEO is furious and yells, "JESUS IS NOT GETTING NAILED TO THE CROSS WITH B&Q NAILS, PERIOD!"
Another week goes by, and the ad man comes back with a third tape. This time Jesus sprints down the street with a group of centurions in pursuit. As he passes the camera one of the centurions turns and says, "We should have used B&Q nails!"
He was deployed to Iraq on the spot.

I don’t want to take away from BLM, but I thought this was cool. This lady has been having her own pride parade for the last 2 days on this spot.
AITA for taking the best parking spot away from someone with a more visible medical need?
First and foremost, I have a heart condition. Medical people call it minor, but it's major enough to me. It's not going to kill me so long as I don't do stupid things like aerobics or calesthenics or get angry enough to spike my blood pressure. Anger management is a crucial skill with arrhythmia.
So. I live in an apartment complex, on the second floor. I park in the nearest spot available, closest by the stairs whenever I can. Little things really do help.
A neighbor on the third floor has recently sprained her ankle severely. It will actually take longer for her to heal than if she'd broken it. She complains about me parking in "her spot" since she should get to use the (not marked in any way) "handicap spot".
The neighbors have mostly taken her side, even though I've mentioned my condition. It's much easier for them to see her very obvious distress climbing two flights of stairs, while I only have to climb just one.
Furthermore, since I work from home, once I park there, I "hog

Spotify (SPOT) buys full & exclusive rights to Joe Rogan Podcast. Full episodes will be fully exclusive, no longer on YouTube/other podcast apps.
The podcast gets 200M+ listens a month, and that doesn’t even count YouTube views on clips/full episodes. Spotify is going to see a huge boost in users, have to assume some will enjoy the app and be interested in having their podcasts/music in the same place. Currently trading @ 176.45. How big of an impact can it have? I think it could be huge, I’ll be downloading it again even though I have Apple Music.
UPDATE: It closed @ 174.90 from day traders capitalizing on the news. Still up 8% on the day though. Buy the dip?
Another Note since there’s confusion below: You do not have to have Spotify premium to listen, you just need an account, and you can listen for free. However, having Premium will remove all advertisements, which are usually very lengthy on his show. Also: Joe says he still has 100% creative control, it is a licensing agreement. He is not censored in any way.

Hi MNFH, I'm pretty new here but I'm quite disturbed by the number of posts that appear here daily about people who have quickly and easily given random strangers pictures, sometimes private pictures, and personal details that they now worry about, or in some cases has resulted in turning their life upside down. Sometimes the obvious isn't so obvious but I'm hoping this post might help a few people, and would love some contributions and feedback.
Always check their history:
Why? You can tell if a person's likes and dislikes line up with yours, You can see what kind of person they are, are they a troll? Do they post racist/homophobic/sexist comments. Look for warning signs, it's not a perfect science but it's better than knowing nothing and believing what they tell you.
They have no history:
This can be a huge red flag, especially if the account is quite old. What are they hiding, Why all of a sudden is their only post to you? It doesn't mean they are a bad person, but there
