The strangers who fell in love when 9/11 diverted their flight

I just read this article and enjoyed it so much I wanted to share it.

The short story is that two strangers on flight from the UK to Houston which was diverted into Newfoundland on 9/11 ended up falling in love and getting married. The best part is how amazing the Newfoundlanders were (and I sure still are).

Galapagos rock formation Darwin's Arch has collapsed

"Unfortunately today, our guests of the Galapagos Aggressor III experienced a once in a lifetime event," the company shared.
"This morning at 11:20 a.m. local time, the world famous Darwin's Arch collapsed in front of their eyes.
"Some in the dive & travel industry are already referring to this now as 'The Pillars of Evolution'. We will miss this iconic site."






I like the new title “The Pillars of Evolution” though I think “The Missing Link” would work as well.

Fox really just can't help themselves

Trump is giving Presidential Medals of Freedom to golfers today. Seriously - He is doing that today

What the fuck is going on? How is he still in office?

Maybe Trump is right. We should stop the counting now

If places can’t have their votes counted by now then they shouldn’t count, right?

It looks like Biden is leading by 100% right now.

LMAO. Like flies on s***



I almost hurt myself laughing at this

McConnell's quick push to replace RBG shows his lack of confidence in Trump

If he believed that Trump was going to win, and the GOP was going to retain the Senate, there would be no need to rush to push through a nominee.

It should be pointed out, over and over again, that any Republicans pushing for a nominee prior to the election believe Trump will lose. Preferably pointed out to Trump himself.

Make it a sign of weakness for him.

Herman Cain supports Trump from beyond the grave

Why let a little thing like the fact that you have been dead for several days stop you?

I bet he is planning on voting for Trump as well.

Please help support - grass roots PPE production for schools

Florida has decided that the schools are opening come hell or high water. At the same time the state is providing little to no support for providing PPE for children, teachers and other school workers.

We have put together a coalition of Makerspaces, Hackerspaces, and individual makers to help produce PPE and distribute it to local school systems.

Our core organization (FamiLAB) producer about 2400 face shields for local hospitals in May. We are now trying to help the school systems as well and spread the effort to increase production by working in coordination with similar efforts throughout the country.

Anything you can do to help spread the word is greatly appreciated.

FamiLAB is 501(c)(3) non profit organization.
We are purely volunteer based / no paid employees.

How long into the Biden administration before Republicans start complaining about the pandemic?

I am sure that this pandemic is still going to be going strong well into next year. Particularly since the President and many Republican leaders are going to refuse to do anything to slow it down.

I am betting that about 3 months into Biden's first term, around April/May, we are going to be hearing from Republicans about how Biden has failed at stopping the pandemic.
