For the 15th year in a row, UN ranks Norway the best country to live in, in their annual human development report. Do they not realize how much it rains here, and how cold the winters are?

 

 

Ireland had the highest increase in their ranking, while South Asia was the fastest growing region.

GlobalNews - Emotional classic car auction stuns family

 


At an auction, about $100,000 was raised for two young children whose parents died a few months ago. "They basically stopped the auction, let everybody know what was happening, where the money was going to go, and then we were shocked what happened after that... The car was sold for $29,000 and then was donated back. Then it was sold for $30,000 and donated back. Then it went for $20,000 and donated back again."

Looks cool but I assume at the time of its functionality that it had a roof?

Well that photo looks like it was shot in the Precinct of Amun-Re, so no from what I know it wouldn't have had a roof.

(Of course, I might be mistaking my parts of the Temple of Karnak....)

Hmm, Im suspicious that the stars lined up in that exact position ~4000 years ago when it was built. But maybe thats not long enough for a big drift in position? They must have done it for some reason!

Well, there are a whole slew of pillars in line like that. So with drift, you just have to shift a few "corridors" over to have that same sort of line I imagine...

Normally I would just hit close tab or move on, not really liking most of these compilation youtube videos, but watching the first 60 seconds convinced me this one was actually worth watching. Some really stunning things taking place there....

 

(edit: yes, the front picture is pure click bait which is why i ignored it at first, a friend had linked me to it)

Opening the coke bottle with a chainsaw was pretty good.

Iirc, Earth's precession takes 26000 years, so it's strange that it looks like that today. Unless, like Raithe says, you can just move to another corridor, in which case that is a very smart design.
