When some people set their mind to something, there's no stopping them.
  • "Gastroenterologists who X-rayed Lotito’s stomach said he was capable of consuming 2 pounds per day, according to his Guinness World Records entry."

    I often read things and think about them and realize that it's so absurd I can't believe anyone tried to pass it off as true, and this is one of them.

    Gastroenterologist: "Oh yeah, that stomach can consume metal, I know because..." Because what? You've been trained to identify stomachs that can digest metal using X-rays? What day of gastroenterologist school was that?

    Go Google abdominal X-ray. You can't even tell where the stomach is, it's just a cloudy area.

    "Oh yeah, that cloudy area there can definitely digest metal, I can tell just by looking at it. I'd say it can digest, say, a pound and a half easily. Probably two pounds. Probably not two and a half though, I can tell just by looking at it that two pounds would be too much. "

  • Didn't feel like being confrontational today
  • I doubt he's trying to intimidate anyone. It's most likely a fake. He has an M20 super bazooka in there too. He's probably on the way to a recreation, static display, parade or even a movie set. A lot of guys that restore vehicles like that rent them out for movies.

  • Open source weather app with rain notifications?
  • It's not open source but Rain Alarm draws a circle around you on the map and alerts you if weather radar detects any precipitation entering that circle. I don't know if that's what you want but it's what I want in a rain notification and it's the only app I'm aware of that does it.

  • conservation
  • Ya know, when hermit crabs find a new shell and it's too big for them they sit next to it. Others come try it and if its too big for them they sit next to it too.

    But what's interesting is they line up by size, with the largest crab closest to the shell.

    Finally, when a big crab comes by and the shell fits, he drops the old one and the next largest crab gets it. That second crab drops his old one and the next crab gets it, etc, etc. All the crabs in line get a new shell as soon as the crab in front of them moves into their new shell.

    So, yeah. I'd watch hermit crabs all day if I could too.
