Random sidenote - this video is old and has a history of people bashing the humans for intruding on the Tigers' territory, saying stuff like "yeah he got what he deserved, don't f with tigers." It was most likely the other way around. The tiger wandered into a village. I remember reading somewhere that they were trying to subdue the tiger and then remove it from the village areas so it won't pose a threat to the people. Although tiger spottings are rare in India where humans are, occasionally you still have a stray tiger roaming the town. Turns out it ain't always easy sharing the land with vicious predators. I don't blame them and really gotta call those people bold for trying to get rid of the tiger.

Imagine if if a Tiger got loose in an American city? It'd probably be shot before it even knew what was going on.

Dang, that's really sad. Lions and Tigers are becoming increasingly endangered and seeing them so rashly disposed of is depressing. Pretty much confirms the "would be shot on sight" point I was trying to get across in my previous comment.

On another thought, why the heck does someone have 18 tigers and 17 lions and dozens of other exotic dangerous animals in Ohio?

Not using your turn signals. Also using your phone during a movie.

see more

Not using your turn signals is already illegal. Unfortunately enforceability is not that high, but I'm sure once in a while cops do pull-over people that repeatedly don't use their turn signals.

Using a phone during a movie is already against the rules in most all movie theaters in my area. Again, depending on the movie theater and the employees, it might not be that enforced. If you're very annoyed at individuals distracting the movie by using their phones, you actually might be able to report that after the movie and even get a refund.

GMOs. Are. Not. Evil.

I recently joined a very large fortune 200 Agricultural company as an intern. During orientation, the CEO spoke to us and literally basically bashed the entire GMO/Organic foods debate as being largely pointless, and that GMOs are and have always been safe and logical.

Turns out, very few people understand food except the farmers and scientists that are involved in producing them.

Correlation vs causation would be a fabulous thing for more people to grasp.

The main reason is because rovers and probes are lower risk, very efficient, and generally cheaper when you look at safety cost and systems required to keep astronauts alive.I would love to see manned space flight to the moon or beyond, but the majority of science missions are easily accomplished without humans on the spacecraft.

True, even if we travel interstellar, it is very likely that robots and AI will travel first much before humans because one of the biggest problems with space travel is likelihood of death, which is usually just too high. If a robot in the future can do all the important things a human can on another planet, why send a human there for research? Also robots can live longer and don't need food and water all the time. The first thing on Proxima Centauri (if we ever get there) will probably be a robot or rover.

With clickbait "EPIC PUTTING PYRAMIDS IN FORTNITE???", taking 20 minutes to get to the point, and random shitty gameplay in the background.

And that, in my opinion, is one of the worst things a developer can do.

Interestingly I've noticed Epic does listen to their community more than other game devs.

Take Runescape for example. 10+ years of not listening to their community, basically changing the core of the game, having thousands of players quit, then *suddenly* realizing that and coming up with "Old School Runescape" which is literally an archive of Runescape from 2006 in which the game and nearly all the updates are voted by the players in weekly polls.

Tomorrow may very well be the last day Lucky Landing will be in the game, so drop in there one last time!

Lucky Landing is a seasonally themed location that is rumored to be taken out of the game on the onset of Season 5. It is also rumored that it will be replaced with a Medieval-themed location that might be named Captive Castle.

Other areas expected to see a change or disappearance are Lonely Lodge, Moisty Mire, Football Stadium, Motel, Greasy Grove, and Retail Row.

Let's give some love to one of the more underrated town's in the game!

It might be similar, but just change. So retail might change into another town, just not retail anymore. Same with greasy. I think Lucky Landing will be totally changed entirely though (into maybe Captive Castle).

Not the best analogy. A lot of those people are psychopaths who could’ve gotten help if they seeked it.

For these people, their next meal for their family probably literally depended on getting a rhino kill. And it’s not the same as, say, the homeless in U.S., because in many countries in Africa if you’re severly impoverished, you’re basically on your own. No government programs to help them, no casual rich folk walking around donating, no people of wealth at all probably - it's everyone on their own. I’ve also seen documentaries that many of these people literally hunt and forage for their food as humans used to before industrialization. The way they view it, if a rhino kill can sustain them and their families for a period of time, it was worth it. They don't care that the government could literally shoot them. They don't care if there are rich people on fancy expensive computers thousands of miles away berating them. They value their own lives and family's lives over a rhino, despite the animal being endangered. And you can't really blame them for. Hunger and the desire to sustain yourself and a family can turn you into an animal with little regard for politics, laws, and least of all, endangered animals.Especially when you're in a wilderness with little law or order.

I'm not defending the poachers. I believe a solution to this problem would actually stem from reducing the demand for rhino horn in parts of Asia, which in itself would be difficult to do.

No, the unvierse doesnt expand at the edges, it expands at every possible point. Its expanding in front of you right now.

Youre thinking of a circle growing bigger by adding rings to the outside. Instead imagine a balloon being blown up.

Sometimes I entertain my mind with these kinds of thoughts: make a fist with your hand, and try to visualize the "space" your fist is taking up. In the next second, that space that was once occupied by your fist is now about 80 miles wide (assuming space is expanding at 42 miles/sec).

Not sure if this analogy is totally accurate but I wonder about it.

Ugh the current music is absolute garbage and I find myself many times muting my monitor when I'm idle in the lobby because it gets annoying to listen to after the first couple loops. On the other hand I literally listen to the old theme on Youtube like it's regular music I'd buy. That's just how different the two soundtracks are. One sounds like some generic garbage and the other has a really powerful, almost ominous, mysterious, exciting and adventurous tone to it. I really hope Epic listens to their fans on this one.

I feel like there is much going on behind the scenes. In the end, all these political twists probably stem from a change of interests in NK. I doubt they suddenly approve of the US, but at the same time I don't think every bit of the previous anti-US sentiment was real. And Russia might be in some way involved. It's all just really confusing for an average citizen of either country.

Especially when you're hiding in the basement of a house in Salty and just as you think someone is coming into the house you hear the gnome..

I used to get all my furniture from dumpsters at the nearby university campus right after finals week. Kids throw away an unbelievable amount of great furniture just because they're moving back home.

The basement of my residence hall was where students were to put anything they were throwing away (clothes, furniture, electronics, etc.) at the end of the school year.

Our school has a huge international Asian student body whom many would buy (quite expensive) furniture and electronics only to have no choice but to dispose of them at the end of the school year as there was no easy way to transport it back home on a plane. There was easily hundreds of dollars worth of furniture and electronics (like brand new mini fridges, etc).

Same, but I do wish it was darker and less blue to match more skins.

Same feelings here. I felt that the Omen's color looked a little too similar to Carbide, which is just too common now. I personally would've liked a darker toned cape which could go with the Omega and a bunch of other skins.

"Never change for anybody."

Obviously, it's not a good idea to change everything about yourself to get someone to like you.

The problem with that advice is that change is a natural part of life, and it's inevitable when you meet someone you're going to be with long term. I've changed a ton since I met my husband, and he has too. But we've changed for the better. It's a good thing.

I didn’t even need an explanation, this is pretty stupid advice..
