Chrysler Town and Country Talk

2013.04.21 17:33 upinatdem The Chrysler Town and Country: the one van to rule them all

The Chrysler Town and Country is the greatest van of all time. It has pushed this great country through the toughest times in history, it led us to victory of the British, it gave women the vote, it will cure cancer. There has never been a car like the Town and Country, fast and luxurious. Any other Mini-vans should be burned on a stake for trying to imitate our great van. All hail the Town and Country.

2023.06.04 11:20 Juicyjull Safe [Breeds] for domestic rabbits

1) Will this be your first dog? If not, what experience do you have owning/training dogs?
* I already had a dog when I was a teenager, and was in charge of him after my parents divorce. I walked him twice a day, before and after my classes. I didnt really train him myself, my father had, a few years before he left. My girlfriend never had a dog, but have 2 domestic rabbits, and did some training with them (make them learn some tricks.
2) Do you have a preference for rescuing a dog vs. going through a [reputable breeder]( http://ownresponsibly.blogspot.com/2011/07/identifying-reputable-breeder.html)?
* As it will be our first dog, and we have rabbits at home (they live freely in our appartment), we prefer going through a breeder.
3) Describe your ideal dog.
* My ideal dog is a bit lazy, but loves to play and cuddle when stimulated. He is curious, and follows me everywhere in the house. He has a cute bond with our rabbits, and often sleep with them. He is strong and protective enough to intimidate aggressive people that bother my girlfriend when she walks by herself at night, but is not dangerous to friendly people. He loves us and want to be with us all the time, but can stand being by itself for a few hours.
4) What breeds or types of dogs are you interested in and why?
* I'm really fond of both the Eurasier and the Finnish Lapphund, as their looks can remind of wild canine species (like wolves, coyote), while looking harmless. They're not too big, but not too small either, and their long hair makes you want to cuddle them. I also like dogs who aren't just "cuddly toys", and who could also protect me, rather than protection being a one-way street (it's not a fragile little thing that I have to protect). They are also one of the few breeds that my girlfriend and I both like the looks (to put it simply, she likes funny little things like Corgis, and I prefer big dogs like Mastiffs). Also, they are a bit unusual, and even though I know it's not necessarily very clever, having a different breed of dog than everyone reinforces for me the feeling that he's unique.
5) What sorts of things would you like to train your dog to do?
* Simple things like sitting, lying down, pawing... And above all, being able to walk with him without a leash.
6) Do you want to compete with your dog in a sport (e.g. agility, obedience, rally) or use your dog for a form of work (e.g. hunting, herding, livestock guarding)? If so, how much experience do you have with this work/sport?
* Having the ability to do some dog sport would be nice, as I know my girlfriend really enjoyed practicing tricks with her rabbits, but it is not mandatory at all. We won't use him for any sort of work whatsoever.
**Care Commitments**
7) How long do you want to devote to training, playing with, or otherwise interacting with your dog each day?
* Ideally, something like 15 minutes of training, one hour of going out, and one hour of playing in the appartment. But I would like to interact with him in other ways too, and maybe having him by my side when working on my computer, cuddling him and so on.
8) How long can you exercise your dog each day, on average? What sorts of exercise are you planning to give your dog regularly and does that include using a dog park?
* An hour a day on weekdays, and three or four on weekends. I'd like to be able to take him for walks in the forest, in the countryside... In the great outdoors, when you leave the city to get some fresh air as a couple.
9) How much regular brushing are you willing to do? Are you open to trimming hair, cleaning ears, or doing other grooming at home? If not, would you be willing to pay a professional to do it regularly?
* -As little as possible, but we can do it twice a week if needed.
**Personal Preferences**
10) What size dog are you looking for?
* As stated before, I love big dogs and my girlfriend prefers small ones. So a medium sized dog, Around 45-50cm high.
11) How much shedding, barking, and slobber can you handle?
* Shedding and slobber are fine. Barking when outside or playing at home is fine too, but can bother us while doing other things like cooking, working, watching a movie..
12) How important is being able to let your dog off-leash in an unfenced area?
* It would be nice, but it not our first criteria.
**Dog Personality and Behavior**
13) Do you want a snuggly dog or one that prefers some personal space?
* Clearly a Snuggly one.
14) Would you prefer a dog that wants to do its own thing or one that’s more eager-to-please?
* A dog that is eager-to-please.
15) How would you prefer your dog to respond to someone knocking on the door or entering your yard? How would you prefer your dog to greet strangers or visitors?
* I'll like my dog to be able to differentiate friendly visitors and non friendly ones. In both cases, I'll like my dog to bark if someone knocks at the door.
16) Are you willing to manage a dog that is aggressive to other dogs?
* No.
17) Are there any other behaviors you can’t deal with or want to avoid?
* Once more, we have 2 domestic rabbits, and the main thing we want to avoid is our dog harming them in any way.
18) How often and how long will the dog be left alone?
* Maybe once or twice a week, when I have meetings happening in town where I cant bring my dog. Otherwise, I'm teleworking.
19) What are the dog-related preferences of other people in the house and what will be their involvement in caring for the dog?
* Once more: rabbits.
20) Do you have other pets or are you planning on having other pets? What breed or type of animal are they?
* Once more: rabbits.
21) Will the dog be interacting with children regularly?
* No, but we plan on having some in the future.
22) Do you rent or plan to rent in the future? If applicable, what breed or weight restrictions are on your current lease?
* No restrictions.
23) What city or country do you live in and are you aware of any laws banning certain breeds?
* No I'm not.
24) What is the average temperature of a typical summer and winter day where you live?
* Around 23°C in summer and 2°C in winter.

2023.06.04 11:00 school_ls_good Do you think no contact is beneficial for my situation?

Hi all,
Just here to get some advice on my "breakup" in order to act in a way that's best for me.
So, me (23M) and my girlfriend (22F) have more or less broken up about a week ago after about two years of talking and about 18 months of being in a couple. It has now been only 48 hours since I decided that no contact might help me (mainly from doom browsing subreddits). However, I am unsure if it's really the best for me. At this point, I think I've felt myself progressively moving onwards. She had somewhat already done so, because she had had a month of thought behind it.
She brought the point to me because of our very specific circumstances. Since I left Europe in January, we have not been able to physically interact. I am now home in Australia, where she is coming to holiday in September. I was so excited for this date and the subsequent flourishing of our couple that once the possibility of it broke down, I followed closely. The issue really is the expectations we have set for each other. For two years we speak every day, without ever missing a good morning nor night. We felt compelled to spend all our contemporal waking moments chatting as we the time zones allowed probably 3-4 hours a day.
She recently, after much discussion, revealed to me that she had "got bored" (s'etait lassée, I'm not sure if there's a perfect English translation), and that she can't sustain the effort and expectations that I have of her in this friend relationship. This is because she more or less works full time plus 3 hours daily commute and an impressive hygiene routine, leaving her very little energy in the morning and night. She also is concerned about Australia. I am located immobily in Melbourne She (and her two best friends) want to see the entire country, surrounding islands and other touristic zones. She will not be able, obviously to keep up with my messaging and needs through this trip, and that it will be so hard on us seeing as we still obviously care for each other, but cannot see each other nor talk frequently. She said to me that she doesn't see herself ready for the expectations of maintaining a couple, and that she just wants to travel and have fun with her two best friends in the country of her dreams. I then recommended we pause our relationship (relation amoureuse), and that we can re-examine recoupling in the future.
After much sadness on my end, and also reflection, I understand her position perfectly. Especially seeing that, although we're the same age, she went straight to college and completed her undergrad out of high school, and despite some week long trips across Europe and one to Africa, she's not really ever travelled. In fact, she still lives with her parents in her home town. I, on the other hand, have spent 10 months in Europe and 18 months in Perth, 3300 km from my home, family, and friends. I've seen so much already. I only now am completing my degree. This means I won't be able to go back to Europe long term until at the earliest mid 2025, leaving 12 months (after her trip in Australia) until I'd be able to be with her. Similarly, she has the master of her dreams ahead of her upon her return in France, a master which includes a semester in Korea or Japan, two countries that culturally interest her more than any other. So, it's uncertain how available she would be for me at that time. This is why I think we really should just transition into being friends.
in light of this wall of text, what do you think? In all honesty, I just miss talking to her. Each of us to the other is the person that we talk the most. If anything, I just miss telling her things. Should we just work on lowering expectations and communication availability to each other? I've already decided to jump on dating apps to see what happens. I just want to talk to my best friend.

2023.06.04 10:03 saidfgn Please, help me to find my lost cat

I decided to carry my 1 year old cat to the vet's office in my car's trunk, he ran away somewhere next to the office and I can't find him anymore.
I will explain what happened here in a very detailed form. Perhaps these details can help me get better advice. Prerequisites:
My male cat is 1 years old and not neutered. He is domestic short hair cat and was born to my female cat. I also keep one of his brothers from the same litter.
We live in suburban town in Azerbaijan. We have a house with private property like all of our neighbors. We have big open terrace and that's where we keep our cats. So we don't allow them inside of our house. Our cats live in terrace and they are free to walk wherever they want . It is common in suburban places to keep cats like this in my country.
Before this my cat twice left the house in spring (for 2 days and 3 days). I was worried a little but knew he will be back, and he was back.
How I lost him:
Last week my cat had swollen cheek. He was sleeping for most of the day and was very passive. I've decided to take him to the vet office about 4-5 kms from home.
None of my cats have ever left the house in a car, so I don't even have a pet carrier. I wanted to put him in a cardboard box, but he left that box before I 've put him in the car. I decided put him in the trunk of my sedan. Now I realize that it was extremely stupid idea :( . Trunks are dark, noisy and make cats very stressful and frightened.
During the ride my cat was meowing most of the time, but I thought it is only 5 minutes ride. I parked only few meters from vet's office entrance. Office was just next to a very noisy road. When I opened trunk my cat was sitting in the corner. I knew he might try to run but vet's office was close and I decided to take him there with my hands.
As soon as I grabbed him he tried to escape and I tried to hold him. Exactly at office entrance he scratched my hands and escaped. He ran to my car and stayed under my car for a few seconds. Since road was busy and noisy he decided to run away to someone's yard. I chased him, he went to some bush and hid there. But unfortunately there was a female cat with kittens who attacked him (or was just curious). Then my cat left the bush, climbed to the tree and jumped to another yard. We have high stone fences between properties in my country. I couldn't see him and quickly jumped over fence but couldn't see him anymore. I looked at all corners, trees, bushes, hidden places in the 2nd yard but couldn't notice him. Then I immediately ran to the 3rd neighboring yard and made some unsuccessful search. I searched these 3 yards one more time. I couldn't search more since it was all private properties there.
So I returned about 2 hours later the same day and searched these 3 yards one more time. 4th neighbor didn't allow to search his property. That's all that happened on Thursday, the day I last saw him.
How I tried to find him later:
Some specifics of my country and town that make search harder:
Any ideas what else should I do? I now it is my fault and I can't eat, sleep, work for the last ~70 hours. Feeling so terrible right now. Will appreciate any advice. Sorry for my English, I am not a native speaker.

2023.06.04 09:46 Sufficient_Music4990 We're becoming A-holes so fast, the strengths of this land has been transformed into its own shell of pretense and obnoxious superiority complex.

No matter how you point out the problems ailing this country, no matter how genuine you are and you even might be sometimes a bit wrong with your facts, they'll fucking try their best to put you down rather than join you for a fucking constructive criticism. So fucking sure of their fundamentalism and beliefs, they'll ignore fucking medieval form of violence like lynchings and rather spend their energies in why it's not that bad or worse, they deserved it.
Standards have fucking gone down the gutter, linear ways of simplistic thinking pisses me off and we are fucking quick to put a label on you. Oh he's a leftist, commie, oh he's a chaddi. I mean what's it even worth to gain this 2 seconds of victory? So insecure we are, despite being an open society, we usually behave in a desperately triggered sense. Whataboutery being at its peak, and at the end, being this loyalist to a party or idea that the best of your ideas are quick to be subservient to this cool speaker who's new in town, roasts everyone.
Serious fucking matters have been made trivial in these pathetic dick fighting. Basics like atheism are so beyond some folks, no fucking nuance at all. It has pissed me off for a long time and all one can to is, suck it up or fight a pointless battle on the internet.

2023.06.04 09:29 Amerifly Could you imagine

How many liberals would lose their shit if books and magazines about firearms/ guns were available in elementary schools libraries all over the country. I bet they'd even go mad over simple picture books with historical military weapons. We should fight fire with fire. I haven't been inside a school library for well over a decade at this point, but I don't recall anything like that being available for me in my public Texas school.

2023.06.04 09:07 LastWeekInCollapse Last Week in Collapse: May 28-June 3, 2023

Violence continues in Sudan, the cryosphere breaks down, recessions, harvest failures, heat waves, droughts, and floods. Mother Earth has got a terminal case of humans.
Last Week in Collapse: May 28-June 3, 2023
This is Last Week in Collapse, a weekly newsletter bringing together some of the most important, timely, useful, sad, ironic, amazing, or otherwise must-see moments in Collapse. Try not to overdose on this week’s Doom dose.
This is the 75th newsletter. You can find the May 21-27 edition (which I accidentally labeled the 73rd edition) here if you missed it last week. These newsletters are also on Substack if you want them sent to your email inbox every Sunday.
The World Meteorological Congress concluded on Friday, and it released a bunch of reports. The focus this year was on developing early warning systems for wateclimate/weather disasters. Most countries report declining ability to monitor hydrological developments, and almost half of the world’s people lack reliable access to water for at least one month per year, a figure that is expected to grow considerably by 2050.
The WMO also reported on the state of emergency for the cryosphere, those places where ice is formed (and melts). Greenland’s ice has shrunk for 26 consecutive years. Permafrost threatens to release huge quantities of greenhouse gasses over the coming years. Sea levels continue to rise…but you know this already.
Montevideo, Uruguay’s capital, has come up with a plan to extend their almost-exhausted water supply: they’re adding salt to the tap water, against WHO recommendations. This causes people to drink less water—but what are the implications for health, and for small-scale agriculture?
Over 20 million tonnes of what was damaged in China by recent rain, not long before it was scheduled to be harvested. Analysts say this will raise grain prices worldwide. The scale of this blight is larger than recent blights. In the U.S. state of Georgia, 90% of the peach harvest was destroyed by abnormally warm weather; in Vermont, a freak cold snap damaged crops, potentially 30% of apples.
6 years. 800 million trees felled in the Amazon rainforest, all to create space for cattle farms. The loss of rainforest is equivalent roughly to two Corsica islands.
Environmental scientists have discovered a hopeful tool to lower CO2: Greenland’s “rock flour,” which is basically rock dust. A recent study claims that it can be scattered on fields to absorb CO2—and also boost wheat and potato yields. International lawyers are also working on the first global plastics pollution treaty that could be passed later next year.
Yet another study claims that Mother Earth is sick, and that most of our safety thresholds have been crossed. The feedback loops have been activated, the diagnosis is terminal. The Nature study lists the 8 Earth System Boundaries: 1) Climate, 2) Functional Integrity, 3) Natural Ecosystem Area, 4) Surface Water, 5) Groundwater, 6) Nitrogen, 7) Phosphorus, and 8) Subglobal Aerosols. (Not to be confused with the 9 Planetary Boundaries.)
Some insurers in California are cutting homeowner insurance because they can’t make a buck betting against wildfires and desertification. Similar risk is expanding in Texas. Summer is coming. A mysterious wildfire in Scotland is growing out of control, and threatens to become the UK’s largest ever.
Record May rainfall in Bermuda. Part of South Africa also saw record rains in May. Strong rains in southern Spain—but the parched soil can’t absorb much of it. Meanwhile, the Philadelphia area had its driest May in recorded history.
Vicious drought and Afghan dams have raised tensions between iran and Afghanistan, where fighting killed a handful of people two weeks ago. In times of scarcity, no group can have enough water; even less if they’re forced to share. Most of the world’s lakes are drying up.
An official in India ordered the draining of two million liters of water from a reservoir……so he could retrieve his phone, which he dropped in the water while taking a selfie. He was suspended. The phone was recovered—but too damaged to function. The water could have irrigated 6 km² of land.
Wildfires grow in Nova Scotia. Millions going hungry in Madagascar. Record temperatures in Japan. Normalized heat waves across Asia with new records in Central Asia & the Caucasus.
Scientists warn of potential tsunamis caused by underwater landslides in Antarctica. New cold records in Australia. Heat waves in North Africa. Increasing reliance on expensive desalination plants in Barcelona as drought and water supplies worsen.
Türkiye’s President, Recep Tayyip Erdoğan, won reelection, and economists believe it portends the further Collapse of the economy. Investment is pulling out, and the lira is expected to continue sinking. “We will be together until the grave,” said Erdoğan at his victory speech.
The UN operation to drain the *FSO Safer* has begun now that technicians have boarded the vessel. 1.1 million barrels of oil aboard the derelict tanker, stranded off the coast of Yemen, will begin being drained next month.
Petrol prices rise in Benin as Nigeria cuts its fuel subsidies; Iran is limiting fuel purchases too. China’s declining birth rate, growing debt, and ongoing international decoupling is threatening its economy. Eurozone inflation continues. Trade-GDP ratios approaching 2008 levels worryingly.
Budapest is facing bankruptcy. Refugees in Tanzania are seeing their rations cut in half as financing falls off. Vicious conditions inside refugee camps in Chad take advantage of Sudanese refugees. Debts grow in Brazil. Complicated problems continue destabilizing the world’s economic equilibrium.
Another Russian missile attack struck Kyiv last week, after allegedly pro-Ukraine Russian volunteer soldiers made an incursion into Russian territory. Wagner Group’s chief continues provoking Russian leadership as infighting appears to grow, following a Ukrainian drone attack on Moscow. Zelensky says Ukraine’s counteroffensive is now ready.
Myanmar’s Civil War has entered its third year, depending on when you claim it began. In the desperation and chaos of prolonged warfare, it is the environment that pays the price. Wood, gold, jade, and other resources are being exploited by government and private actors after the old economic system broke apart.
62% of Americans agree that the COVID pandemic is over (it’s not), an increase of 14% since February 2023. 56% of Americans admit that they never mask up in public anymore. An updated booster is coming in September to address the XBB.1.16 variant. Masks may go away, but (Long) COVID will stay with us.
The WHO’s treaty to manage future pandemics is being watered down, leaving humanity less prepared for the next pandemic. Although China denies the lab leak origin story, a prominent Chinese scientist claims it is possible. COVID is never going away, and neither is Long COVID.
Cholera is spreading in several refugee camps in Kenya; medical attention comes too small and too late to prevent the spread. In Sudan, where over a million people have been displaced by recent violence, old inequities linger. Over 13M children are in desperate need of humanitarian aid (about half of Sudan’s 46M population are below 18). Their situation has never been more critical.
Experts continue warning about the dangers of AI, and push for regulation, while other actors push to use AI for economic benefits. I am uncertain which field AI will disrupt the most: military, low-skill workers, societal psyche, institutional integrity, creative jobs, politics, financial markets…? What will be the second-order effects, tertiary, etc.?
Tanzania has called an end to its Marburg virus outbreak, about 10 weeks after it declared an emergency. The UK is advising at-risk people to get vaccinated for mpox/monkeypox before their vaccine program ends in August; 10 new cases in the UK were recently reported.
PFAS, the so-called “forever chemicals” used across many household objects, are dangerous to your health. You also probably could have guessed that manufacturers knew—and lied about—their safety for decades. A study tracked the use of PFAS (since 1940’s) and the knowledge that they were harmful (since 1990’s). Companies including DuPont settled a case for a little over $1 billion USD for their role in the scheme. The billionaire Sackler family also settled a gigantic case regarding opioids, in which they must pay about $6 billion USD, and forfeit control of the pharmaceutical company they’ve held since 1952. The company (formerly Purdue Pharma) is rebranding (as Knoa). Nobody is going to jail.
A catastrophic train crash in India killed 280+ people. The crash involved 3 trains, and is India’s deadliest in this century.
Riots in Kosovo. Torture in suspected gangster prisons in El Salvador, with 153 prisoners killed since March. Ongoing protests in Israel over the proposed judicial reform.
Lebanon has been without a President for more than 7 months now—and now target dats have been missed to hold important municipal council elections. Town budgets are falling further into chaos, police are going unpaid, garbage is piling up, and would-be foreign investors and money-lenders are losing the scraps of hope they had for Lebanon’s crippled economy. No one is coming to save them.
Cartel violence is rising on the border of Mexico-Guatemala. Organized non-state armed groups conscript local guys, intimidate people into leaving, blockade towns, and shoot each other in the streets. Several thousand people have been displaced—and others disappeared. Far away, Syria is being welcomed back into the Arab fold—on the condition that it cracks down on the intractable drug epidemic of captagon.
One of Libya’s rival PMs was ousted a couple weeks ago, and now the other PM in the east is striking towns in western Libya with drones, allegedly targeting fuel/human smugglers.
Boko Haram jihadists are infighting in northern Nigeria, but the civilians are paying the price. Guerrilla territorial competition may also bring in more people into regional hostilities. In eastern DRC, violence has displaced over 80,000 people so far this year, and their regional hospitals are overcrowded.
Rumors are emerging that M23 will attack Goma, the sprawling epicenter of East Africa’s refugee situation, where human rights abuses are increasingly common and the local ceasefire is breaking down. Islamic radicals also operate in the region, targeting civilians. About 6 million people across the DRC are believed to be internally displaced, and about half a million around Goma (population: unknown, perhaps 750,000 or twice that). There are also reports of planes sighted which belong to the European mercenary company Agemira.
The Sudanese Civil War is spiraling out of control again, as skirmishes broke the incomplete ceasefire. The Central Statistics Bureau was attacked, hampering official data for various purposes. Over 1,000 people have died so far, crossing an unofficial threshold for an armed conflict to officially become a War. About 2M have fled the fighting. Rockets killed 18 and injured many more at a market in Khartoum, sanctions are being imposed by a few nations, and other countries are wading deeper into the War, complicating the situation and preventing clean avenues to another ceasefire.
Select comments/threads from the subreddit last week suggest:
-There is rain in Romania, based on this observation. But there’s also corruption, growing labor strikes, inflation, and political difficulties.
-Greenland’s climate is out of whack—and apparently the people don’t seem to care that much, judging from this rare observation from West Greenland.
-Portland, Oregon is still a cross-section of modern America’s Collapse, if this observation can be trusted. Heat, insecurity, overcrowding, loneliness, and crows… Reddit has also been affected by psychological decay, according to the poster.
-People are abandoning climate hope, if you believe this gilded thread and its many gilded comments. Smoke ‘em if you got ‘em.

2023.06.04 08:54 angelikeoctomber The Power

Why power goes off in an zombie apocalypse
I would imagine it goes like this :-
Stage One : Patient Zero appears and starts to infect the population. It’s unlikely she (and they) work in the general infrastructure but that doesn’t matter, because “Bacon’s Law of Six Degrees” suggests they know someone who knows someone who does.
Stage Two : As the virus spreads and more people turns, the odds of the virus reaching people who work in the infrastructure increases, but also the odds of the fear of the virus reaching people who work in the infrastructure increases. So pretty soon there will be a tipping point —-
Stage Three : The Tipping Point. There are either enough people infected or enough people who don’t want to leave their homes or enough people who have fled their homes to ensure that the people who manage the city/town/village infrastructure are no longer around. And while during a “normal” pandemic (flu, Ebola, Covid 19 etc) there can be requirements to work and ways to take safety precautions to ensure staff will turn up to work, when a single bit will kill you and ensure you turn into a zombie it is pretty hard to make people turn up to work. Especially when your boss and the government has probably collapsed as well.
Stage Four : With no one to manage the infrastructure, it collapses. Power goes off, gas stops, water stops. The city collapses into chaos. We are now in a post apocalyptic world.
Stage Five : Everyone dies. Or at least mostly everyone dies, and those who don’t wish they had.
That’s pretty much why.
Another interpretation
During a zombie apocalypse, as the virus is being spread across the country, people are panicking, trying to find their families, trying to find safety, looting, rioting.
The last thing your thinking about when you see your neighbor Bill being eaten by his wife Shelly, is that you gotta punch in at the plant today. No way, your either going crazy and looting, or your planning your next move listening for news,gathering supplies, getting your loved ones together and getting out of the cities to somewhere safer.
So basically, its affecting people that would be going to their jobs, if there is no one to run the power plants, there is no power.
A power station is really a machine that extracts energy from a fuel. Some power stations burn fossil fuels such as coal, oil, or gas. Nuclear power stations produce energy by splitting apart atoms of heavy materials such as uranium and plutonium. The heat produced is used to convert water into steam at high pressure. This steam turns a windmill-like device called a turbine connected to an electricity generator. Extracting heat from a fuel takes place over a number of stages and some energy is wasted at each stage. That means power plants are not very efficient: in a typical plant running on coal, oil, or gas, only about 30–40 percent of the energy locked inside the fuel is converted to electricity and the rest is wasted.
A Nuclear power plant needs around 1,300 people to run safely A medium sized Hydroelectric power station serves about 8,000 people Hoover Dam generates, on average, about 4 billion kilowatt-hours of hydroelectric power each year for use in Nevada, Arizona, and California - enough to serve 1.3 million people. The average annual residential energy use in the U.S. is about 3,000 kilowatt-hours for each person. In the summer of 2003, parts of the North East and mid west United States and Canada got hit with a blackout, at the times it was the world's second most widespread blackout. It affected 10 million people in Ontario,Canada and 45 million people in 8 U.S. States. Lasting in range from a day to a week later.Essential services remained in operation in some of these areas. In others, backup generation systems failed. Telephone networks generally remained operational, but the increased demand triggered by the blackout left many circuits overloaded. Water systems in several cities lost pressure, forcing boil-water advisories to be put into effect. Cell phone service was interrupted as mobile networks were overloaded with the increase in volume of calls. Major cell providers continued to operate on standby generator power.
Television and radio stations remained on the air, with the help of backup generators, although some stations were knocked off the air for periods ranging from several hours to the length of the entire blackout.
In New York, about 3,000 fire calls were reported. From 4 p.m. of the 14th to midnight of the 15th, there were 60 all-hands or greater alarm fires many from people using candles. Emergency services responded to 80,000 calls for help, more than double the average.And as the social structure falls, there is no one to enforce law and order. No one to make sure your going to be at work anyway, you don't wanna be the only shmuck going to work when everyone else is either dead or fighting for their lives do you? You probably just get attacked at work anyway by the janitorial staff.

2023.06.04 08:54 Apiperofhades Where to get accurate polls on israeli opinion?

This is a general question I wanted to ask a while back. I remember posting an article saying most Israelis support ethic cleansing. It based on a poll taken in 2010. One person protested, saying "That was taken after a while a war [sic] and had never been replicated since." I was surprised. If this idea is inaccurate, I want to correct it.
What polling organization should I look to to get accurate opinions from the Israeli population? How do I see what Israelis really believe about the conflict? I'm also interested in polling data in my own country.

2023.06.04 08:51 AutoBusDriver If my Thai gf and I are planning to resettle in the USA (as a married couple) after she finishes her university program, is her course of study a waste of time?

My gf and I have been together for a very long time and we openly discuss marriage & moving to the USA (my home country) when it comes time to raise a family. She has two full years left of her college program (bachelors in business).
I've been living in Thailand on just the standard 30 day visas + extensions, with visa runs every 60ish days. I do encounter immigration hurdles from time to time, plus she's going to a school in Isan, and I'm really sick of living in this nothing-to-do town here.
So both my gf and I are wondering: Is it sensible for her to even stay in her program here in Thailand if we're going to end up living in the USA in two or three years, with her pursuing residency & eventual citizenship? Would her degree have any value outside of Thailand? Are we just wasting our time in Isan and going through hassles needlessly?
I should add, money is not an issue, and the only thing keeping us in Isan (or Thailand in general) is her college program. So just trying to get some insight - have any of you moved your spouses with Thai degrees back to Aus/UK/USA and how was their degree perceived? Like were they able to find work?

2023.06.04 08:50 FerricBadger6150 Help return lost fossil to its rightful owner.

I know this is a long shot given how much time has elapsed, but the guilt is pulling at my conscious and I'd like to make something right.
In the winter of what was probably 2010-2013, I found a fossil in the snow at the Moscow middle school. It had obviously been dropped by a child waiting for the school buses because it was in the area where children waited for school buses. Not where the middle school students waited, but in the parking lot where the younger ones changed buses to go to their respective elementary schools. The child who carried it there would be between 24 and 16 now.
The specimen itself was a piece of leg bone, in immaculate condition, and though I'm not very knowledgeable about fossils, I imagine it was a cherished piece of someone's collection that never made it back from show-and-tell. Being a child myself at that point and having no faith in school staff or administrators or even awareness of the ways I could involve an adult to return the fossil to its owner, I kept my discovery to myself. As time has gone on however, I feel the need to make things right while someone with connections to the rightful owner is still likely to be in the area. It leaves me with a fair amount of guilt to imagine the ways this event may have unfolded for that person and how horrible it must have felt to have lost it. For the long-time Muscovites, if this sounds like the story of someone you may know, please put me in contact with them. It's evident that nobody is more than two steps removed from another in this town and I hope that will be something I can use to my advantage.
Thank you for reading.

Hello Megheads!!
This is a weird question but how many of you guys were raised in a conservative environment (family, general culture around you etc, I’m trying to keep “environment” to mean anywhere between your immediate family to your town or city because I feel like state and country are too general)? I’m trying to test out a hypothesis.

2023.06.04 07:57 Susmar7 YA lesbian shifter book with various types of shifters?

Just remember the beginning.
Werewolves clan lives in middle of woods in a town/compound. They are a special type of werewolf that is stronger than normal because they can go into a berserk mode or something. Everything seems normal when suddenly missiles bomb the whole place, killing everyone but the MC who escapes and ends up in another shifter clans town. They discover her there and take her back to their compound where she stays in a jail cell getting questioned for a bit.
If I recall correctly, she goes to the local school where a cat shifter girl is attracted to her instantly because of being a mate or something.

2023.06.04 07:50 cooking_mama06 Smart financial move?

My fiancé (23M) and I (22F) recently found a house we love for our first home. It’s 2 bed 1 bath, has a barn with electrical wiring and insulation, and a nice small shed. It’s in the country 4 min from town on a paved road with one neighbor. My fiancé currently makes $29.75 an hour and gets raises twice a year until he tops out at $37/hr. I am currently a waitress getting my masters degree, have zero undergrad debt, and will only have to pay (at most, probably less) 14k for my masters degree and will make between 60-75k depending on the job I take when I graduate. The house is 89.9k, and we are going to be able to put about 17% down and have the money to do the remodeling that will be about 5 or 6 grand.
I am very scared to make a bad investment. I’m also extremely frugal and careful with money so I’m wondering if this would be a good idea for us?

My SO (28M) and I (29F) grew up in the same home town and moved an hour away once we grew up. Like many 90’s kids we have alot of nostalgia from our youth. We really want to visit our old elementary schools but can’t imagine it would be easy as just walking in the door. We also think it would be funny to watch a random group of kids singing off tune in some school choir recital/play. So we thought to kill two birds with one stone. So, For the parents out there, do they like…check your name when you walk into the school for these events? Or do you get passes? with the rise of school shootings I wouldn’t be surprised if it’s changed since we were kids. We never plan on having children and our siblings moved across the country so the chance of us visiting our old school let alone a kids play is slim to none.

2023.06.04 07:39 MrMak1080 PML-N's endgame is bringing Nawaz Back in politics ,even if they did that. what difference would it make.

I mean ,One would at least think of a thought process where basically 75-80% population outside of Sindh now despises your party . PML-N's entire shtick of holding the country hostage is that Mr.Baldilocks should be give another chance.And How the last Chief justice betrayed them....whatever that means. Even If you somehow bring him back ,no one gives a fiddle about him,no one is gonna vote for PML-(N) in Punjab now,a hamstrung PTI would still win an election, because of how much they destroyed . If the endgame is burning everything to the ground and bailing on the country to save their own skins. What stopping the other lotays in their parties from ratting them out and airing their dirty laundry out in the public .Not every lota is gonna get a visa to the U.K. When shit hits the fan,they would definitely try to save their own skins.
One would also ponder over how much bank Mr.10% is willing to spend to keep the whole system afloat considering foreign aid to the country is non existent now .No doubt he probably made billions of dollars selling Pakistani souls to the U.S for drone strikes during 2008-2010 .But he's probably keeping all that for continuing his long line of dynasties .PPP will still win an election in Sindh because the whole system here is designed to help PPP win . His End game is bringing bilawal to the spotlight,but No one in Punjab and KPK gives a shit about him. Surely Mr.Mastermind has a plan which doesn't exceed having optimum effects for more than 5-6 months.

2023.06.04 07:36 vormiamsundrake If you were to be transported to Skyrim, what city/town would you live in for the most safety?

You are transported to Skyrim as you are now, meaning no special Dragonborn powers or talents beyond what you already have. You're a normal person just trying to not die to the crazy things going on everywhere in the country. In fact, you're below average, at least, in comparison to the population of Skyrim. Even modern powerlifters and survivalists aren't as tough and hearty as people who live in a land where walking out your front door could result in a tree lady rising out of the ground and killing you, or going out at night could mean getting eaten by a rampaging wolf-monster, even in the cities. That's not to mention the average person.
Everywhere in Skyrim is dangerous, but some places are especially so. Like, why would you want to live in Markarth when it's constantly being attacked and is infiltrated by Forswarn? Or why would you live in Morthal when it's in the middle of a swamp with a den of vampires hanging out nearby? Or in any town where the Daedric Princes have any kind of foothold (Markarth, Dawnstar, Whiterun, etc...)?
You obviously wouldn't be able to live by yourself, because even if you've played the game and memorized all the lore, you'll still be unfamiliar with the land after it's made real. You wouldn't even have the most basic of skills needed to survive, so you have to live with other people to make sure you survive.
That means cities, towns, mills, and other places inhabited by non-hostile people.
Where would you live? Where do you think you'll be safest, and be able to live the least danger-filled life?

2023.06.04 07:13 YellingHusky I Survived: Memories, Nightmares, and Pretending

TW: light abuse mentions, educational neglect, language, religion
So, picture this—I spent my entire schooling years being homeschooled. My remarkable mother decided to revolutionize education by starting these fabulous hybrid homeschool religious schools in sunny SoCal. You know the ones, right? Two days of "classroom" time and three glorious days of being stuck at home every other day. Ah, the memories. It's been nearly 25 years since that grand adventure began.
Now, let me tell you how much I adored every single moment of my homeschooling experience. It was an absolute dream, truly. I just couldn't get enough of those fantastic days, being taught by my mom's dear friends. They were quite the unique bunch. They had this incredible ability to either conveniently ignore the bruises or graciously contribute to them. Oh, what a joyous time that was!
But wait, there's more! Let's not forget about the top-notch education we received. It mainly consisted of having textbooks hurled our way, followed by the expectation of finishing tasks week after week, month after month. It didn't matter if we understood the material or not because, hey, our beloved teachers (the other homeschool parents, of course) sure as shit didn't have a clue either. Oh, and let's not overlook the highlight of our academic year—the mandatory summer reading list. Nothing screams "fun" like being forced to devour a stack of books while everyone else is out enjoying their summer break.
I recently discovered that a friend of mine is enrolling their child in a similar homeschooling nightmare on the opposite side of the country. Can you believe it? Turns out, these homeschool religious schools have formed a glorious network with about a dozen branches across the good ol' US of A. Oh, the excitement! It's just marvelous to know that the abusers I witnessed and experienced firsthand are now in positions of power within this illustrious network. And the best part? Since they aren't considered "real schools," no one needs a pesky degree or even a simple background check. Who needs those qualifications anyway?
Oh, how I adore the fact that this delightful tale is a part of my life story. It brings me immense joy to be well-versed in the intricate details of this peculiar system. It's truly a privilege that, even after a solid decade since bidding farewell to that charming town and another remarkable fifteen years since my graduation, these treasured memories continue to resurface. It's like they never want to let me go!
I found this group and couldn't resist sharing the burden of these "delightful" homeschooling memories. Thanks for listening and letting me dive into the extraordinary world of pretending I lived through it. It's been quite the "pleasure."

2023.06.04 07:06 McPuffinArts Scared to remember what it feels like to be separated again~

I know I shouldn't be worrying about this as I have about 3 weeks or more until he leaves again back to Sweden, hell he isn't even here yet... He will be in 8 days though.
But it sucks knowing that I'm going to have to drop him off at the airport yet again, it was so difficult to watch him go! I remember sobbing, feeling dead inside knowing I had to come back to my shitty apartment and my shitty living environment. Before he came over to see me for the first time, a few days before I cried in the shower and repeatedly said to myself, "I don't want to have to come back here"
It broke my heart and a part of me died when he had to go, it took some weeks for things to go back to "normal." Now hopefully this is the last time this separation needs to happen, I hope the migration agency contacts me this year or early next year because I hate being apart from him. I've been looking forward to seeing him all year, and it'll be a year exactly since we've seen each other.
I don't want it to end, I long for the day when it's time for me to go with him, when I can leave this town and this country behind me.
I hope it won't be much longer until then~

2023.06.04 06:45 rubyphire78 Boomer in-laws don’t even know their own USA history.

It’s embarrassing to talk to my boomer parents and in-laws.
They didn’t know that Columbus was Italian and that he had murdered and pillaged his way through the Americas. They didn’t know about Jim Crow laws, Sundown towns, poll taxes, and poll tests that kept black Americans from being able to vote until the late 1960s. They didn’t know that the GI bill, after WWars, didn’t offer much of anything to black Americans who had served and prevented them from developing much of the generational wealth that was afforded to many white Americans. They didn’t know that the slave owners, in the south, actually got reparations after emancipation. They didn’t know what red-lining was. They have no idea what happened in Tulsa, OK (black Wall Street) or that NY city’s Central Park was a thriving black community called Seneca Village, or that an entire town in GA was flooded to remove the black people, or that Manhattan beach (in CA) was also a black community. They didn’t know Haiti was an island connected to the Dominican Republic (after a long and painful conversation about immigrants crossing the southern border). They didn’t know about American foreign policies in South America which has contributed to the mass exodus of people from their own countries. They are unaware of the current reproductive policies in many states in the USA. They have no idea what it takes to immigrate to the USA, today. They told me that poor people are getting paid by the government to stay home and not work (all that Covid money, apparently). They didn’t know that the second amendment was redefined in a Supreme Court case in 2008 and that is why a lot of gun laws are hard to implement today. They believe that boomers are not the responsible generation because they are not in government and we had to remind them that the average age of congress is almost 60 and that the current, and most recent former, president are boomers.
These are retired, well-educated, highly successful people and they are so ignorant about their own country’s history. I could go on and on.
