~7 miles

I have a mighty desire for RE7/Outlast crossovers. Like, can you imagine Miles sitting at a bar, musing on like, “Dude, I had two fingers chopped off.”

And Ethan just sort of scoffs and goes, “Man, that’s nothin’! My wife stabbed me and then sawed off my entire left hand.”

Miles, with a super stoic expression, looks over at Ethan and says, “I was possessed and shot multiple times in the chest.”

Then a light illuminates Blake in the background. He laughs weakly and swirls a glass of alcohol in one hand. “Your pains are nothing in comparison to mine!” he sneers, taking a drink in order to steel himself before standing awkwardly from his seat to reveal a large bandage over his groin.

Miles just makes a pained expression and Ethan utters a quiet, “That’s rough, buddy.”

A UK mosque was set on fire just hours after the Manchester bombing

  • Several hours after a detonated bomb killed at least 22 people at an Ariana Grande concert in Manchester, England, a mosque nearby was reportedly set ablaze, according to the Independent.
  • An unidentified person or persons set fire to the door of the Jamia Qasmia Zahidia Islamic Center in Oldham, about 7 miles from Manchester. 
  • A police spokeswoman told the Independent that authorities received a phone call reporting an arson attack around 3 a.m. Tuesday morning.
  •  The spokeswoman also said there were no injuries from the fire and the incident is currently under investigation. Read more (5/24/17)

“When you walk, one foot is always on the ground. When you run, most of the time you are actually airborne. For example: a 6-foot-tall runner with feet about 1 foot long was found to take 1,250 steps while running 8-minute miles. Thus, while covering 1 mile—5,280 feet—he was in touch with the ground for 1,250 feet and airborne for 4,030 feet.

Put another way, he was in the air for 76% of the time. So don’t think of it as a 10-mile run. Think of it as 7 miles of flying.”

- “Running is Flying”
by Paul E. Richardson

After our girlfriend disappeared for three years we decided not to go to the authorities instead just to check it out ourselves by going to this abandoned plantation that was surrounded by horse corpses but that was nothin’ but a thing so then we went in there and then we found our girlfriend but she was evil and she tried to kill us with a chainsaw so we chopped her in half but then she was like, fine - we’re cool, we’re on the rocks right now but I think it’s okay, maybe take a break, maybe see some other people, we’re gonna talk it out. But then Jack was really cool when he knocked us unconscious and invited us to dinner but dinner was like - it was like a Thai food thing and I got this allergy, we weren’t about it, Lucas is an asshole, Grandma’s FUCKED UP, and after we blew him up, burned him alive and cut him in half a few times, Jack’s kinda off our ass right now, but we got the scorpion key and the three-headed dog shit so now we’re cool and we’re outside.

So now you’re all caught up.

Oh and our hand got stapled back on.

Images of Change

Our planet is constantly changing, and we use the vantage point of space to increase our understanding of Earth, improve lives and safeguard our future. 

These images show change over time, with periods ranging from centuries to years. Some of these effects are related to climate change, some are not. Some document the effects of urbanization or the ravage of natural hazards such as fires and floods. All show our planet in a state of flux. Take a look…

Urban Expansion in New Delhi, India

Between the times these two images were taken, the population of India’s capital and its suburbs (known collectively as “Delhi”) ballooned from 9.4 million to 25 million. It is now second in population only to Tokyo, which has 38 million people.

Great Salt Lake Shrinkage, Utah

Dramatic change in the area of the Great Salt Lake over the past 25 years. The lake was filled to near capacity in 1985 because feeder streams were charged with snowmelt and heavy rainfall. In contrast, the 2010 image shows the lake shriveled by drought. The Promontory Peninsula (protruding into the lake from the top) is surrounded by water on three sides in the first image, but is landlocked on its eastern side in the second.

Exceptional Early Ice Melt, Greenland

Meltwater streams, rivers and lakes form in the surface of the Greenland Ice Sheet every spring or early summer, but melting began exceptionally early in 2016. Melting encourages further melting when pods of meltwater develop, since they darken the surface and absorb more sunlight than ice does. Surface melt contributes to sea-level rise when the water runs off into the ocean.

Iran’s Lake Urmia Changes Color

Some combination of algae and bacteria is periodically turning Iran’s Lake Urmia from green to red. The change typically occurs when summer heat and dryness evaporate water, increasing the lake’s saltiness. Data from satellites indicate that the lake has lost about 70% of its surface area over the last 14 years.

Owens Lake Degradation, California

Owens Lake lies in the Owens Valley between the Sierra Nevada and the Inyo Mountains, about 130 miles north of Los Angeles, California. For thousands of years, it was one of the most important stopover sites in the western U.S. for migrating waterfowl and shore birds. However, in the early 20th century, the lower Owens River, which fed the lake, was largely diverted to the Los Angeles aqueduct. Water from springs and artesian wells kept some of the lake alive, but toxic chemicals and dust impinged on the regional environment and disturbed the bird habitat.

Baban Rafi Deforestation, Niger

Baban Rafi Forest is the most significant area of woodland in the Maradi Department of Niger, a west African country on the southern edge of the Sahara Desert. These pictures show the loss of a significant fraction of the natural landscape (darker green areas) of the forest to agriculture. Population in this region quadrupled during the 40 years leading up to the 2007 image.

Colorado River Evolution, Mexico 

These two pictures illustrate the extremes of water flow in the Colorado River since measurements began in the late 1800s. The 1985 image was taken in the midst of record high flow, while the 2007 image shows the driest period. Excessive rains or severe droughts directly change the amount of water available in the Colorado River Basin, and so does the increasing pressure of human needs throughout the western states.

Helheim Glacier Melt, Greenland

Along the margin of the Greenland Ice Sheet, outlet glaciers flow as icy rivers through fjords and out to sea. These pictures show a fjord in which Helheim Glacier (on the left) is crumbling into large and small icebergs (light blue, on the right). The glacier outlet held steady from the 1970s until about 2001, then began to retreat toward its source about 4/7 miles between 2001 and 2005. The glacier’s flow to the sea has also sped up.

Drying Lake Poopó, Bolivia

Lake Poopó, Bolivia’s second-largest lake and an important fishing resource for local communities, has dried up once again because of a drought and diversion of water sources for mining and agriculture. The last time it dried was in 1994, after which it took several years for water to return and even longer for ecosystems to recover.

Flooding on the Ganges River, India

Heavy monsoon rains have caused catastrophic flooding along the Ganges and other rivers in eastern and central India. At least 300 people died and more than six million were affected by the flooding, according to news reports. These images show a stretch of the Ganges near Patna.

All of this knowledge about our home planet enables policy makers, government agencies and other stakeholders to make informed decisions on critical issues that occur all around the world. From rising sea levels to the changing availability of freshwater, we enable studies that unravel the complexities of our planet from the highest reaches of Earth’s atmosphere to its core.

I don't mean to upset or disrespect you, I'm only telling you because I like you and am genuinely worried about you. You should do something about your weight, body positivity is really good and I'm happy you like yourself because you really are beautiful, but being overweight has lots of health risks. I know it's a delicate issue and I'm really sorry to bring it up

I appreciate the concern but I’m actually in perfect health. I work out 3 times a week, can deadlift 350lbs, walk around 7 - 10 miles a day, and eat healthy.

There’s a difference between being healthy and fat, and I’m in excellent physical heath /and/ I’m fat.

Actually, and I’ve just recently learned about this and think it’s interesting: adulthood weight has more to do with genetics than we ever thought it did. (Can’t find the article atm but it’s talked about in one of the Bill Nye Saves the World episodes) And considering most of my family are giants (6’+ and 250lbs+), it’s not necessarily an indicator of poor health that I’m a large woman.

Fuck off - Spelling it out for us?

Wow. Fuck off? I mean. Sherlock walked around London to spell out Fuck off on a map. I can’t believe I didn’t think of this before.

The contactsh and contactjhw twitter accounts are giving us tons of locations in Amsterdam. They’re still there, and they said they’ll be there until Sunday evening if everything goes to plan, so they’re not finished yet, but we should definitely track this.

I made a list of places we’ve got so far, and I also included places where we don’t know yet where they are but which we could potentially find out.

I’m not really clear on how we’re meant to be connecting them - in a straight line, footpaths etc - and whether we have to adhere to the order in which the places are visited. But anyway.
