The real reason we’re seeing more wildlife during the pandemicAs the world has slowed down to stave off the spread of COVID-19, stories of wild animals tromping into now-quiet city streets have gone viral online. Some of these turned out to be completely made-up, including the dolphins supposedly swimming through Venice canals or the elephants getting drunk on corn wine in a Chinese farming village. But there are also plenty of very real sightings of animals you might not expect in the urban jungle.3
Trump's public displays of erratic behavior are symptomatic of a country that's gone off the railsWhat's the smartest thing Donald Trump could say to the American people right now? I mean, other than, "I resign." How about, "I'm sorry?" Back in the day, three-time New York City mayor Fiorello LaGuardia admitted, "When I make a mistake, it's a beaut,"and voters loved him for his seeming hum
How to Ram a CarLet's ask the question that's on your mind. When would you ever have to do this? Perhaps you're busting through a police barricade, breaking through a government checkpoint, or incapacitating the car of an illicit pursuer. Not all 'authorities' are righteousness, just, and 'can do no wrong.' Ramming a car to move it out of your way is not easy or safe, but there are some methods that work better than others and some that will minimize the damage to your vehicle. Keep in mind that the best way to hit a car blocking your path is to clip the very rear of it, about one foot from the rear bumper. The rear is the lightest part of a car, and it will move relatively easily. Hitting a vehicle in the rear can also disable it--with the rear wheel crushed, you have time to get away without being pursued. You're now prepared to ram. What's the first step? 1. Disable your airbag, if you can. It will deploy on impact and will obstruct your view after it deploys. 2. Wear a seat belt. It might be awkward to fly through your windshield and land on the hood of the car you just rammed. 3. Accelerate to at least twenty-five miles per hour. Do not go too fast--keeping the car at a slow speed will allow you to maintain control without slowing down. Then just before impact, increase your speed to greater than thirty miles per hour to deliver a disabling crunch to the rear wheel of the obstacle car. 4. Ram the front passenger side of your car into the obstacle car at its rear wheel, at a ninety-degree angle (the cars should be perpendicular). 5. If you are unable to hit a car in the rear, go for the front corner. Avoid hitting the car squarely in the side; this will not move it out of your way. 6. The car should spin out of your way--hit the gas, and keep moving. Viola! Pour Conclure In a perfect world, you'll never have to do this. But, alas, we do not live in a perfect world. Stay safe out there.

Best of Last Week: The origins of 'Oumuamua, robots that eat metal, and writing dreams in a labIt was a good week for space science as a large international team of researchers studying data from ESO's Very Large Telescope observed a star dancing around a supermassive black hole, once again proving that Einstein was right. And a team with members from several institutions in the U.S. and one in the U.K. discovered an Earth-size exoplanet orbiting in its star's habitable zone as they were reanalyzing old data from NASA's Kepler space telescope. Also, a pair of researchers, Yun Zhang and Douglas Lin with the Chinese Academy of Sciences and Tsinghua University, respectively, used computer simulations to show that objects such as 'Oumuamua could form due to the influence of tidal forces similar to those on Earth—and they further claimed that their formation theory explains all of 'Oumuamua's unusual characteristics.

The Great Pyramid of Giza Is the Only Known Eight-Sided Pyramid in ExistenceThe Great Pyramid of Giza continues hiding a plethora of ancient secrets. We don’t really understand how the ancient managed to build this massive structure thousands of years ago. Not only that, but we haven’t quite figured out how the ancient builders quarried, transported and placed thousands of massive stones into position, creating a structure …12
