Putin: trained KGB agent. Obama: plays basketball and golf. Yup, sounds like Putin would kill Obama in about 10 seconds. on Vlad Putin (Upvotes: 78)
@Negamanee, that wasn't his point. Both days are national holidays, therefore schools should be closed for both days. on Funny Pics (Upvotes: 44)
@BIessthefaII, ...it is actually very complicated. The clouds send down what is called a step ladder, which searches for the easiest path to the ground. In some cases, the ground sends up what is called carona discharge. Which is something that occurs in many places, I.e. At night sometimes you can see a dim glow on power lines, that is carona discharge. When the step ladder hits the ground, or a carona discharge, there is a path of low resistance the the ground. And you get a "lightning strike" that actually goes in short bursts. First the lowest few meters goes to the ground, then the region above that, and then above that until the cloud sends down a pulse. The pulses repeat until either the cloud approaches a neutral charge, or the path gains enough resistance to prevent another pulse. The pulses typically occur 5 to 10 times in a "lightning strike". -from my own knowledge, I have a PhD in high energy particle physics. on lighting at 7200 frames per second (Upvotes: 71)

@Phaneron, uhhhh....no. That's really not how those places work. AA, etc are therapy for actual problems. Battered women shelters are a shelter for physically abused women. Safe spaces are rooms with play dough an crayons for idiot college students to go to when they hear an opinion they don't like. Getting physically abused is completely not the same as hearing a different opinion. The fact that you can even remotely equate the two shows what an ignorant and entitled life you've led. Grow up, and stop believing you're special. You're not. on Only In Boston (Upvotes: 35)
