There's a new rhythm video game that released last Friday. The soundtrack is stellar.

This is flipping fantastic. I'm glad to hear that folks are paying down their debts and generally being frugal with their money. The question is now what happens (theoretically) if all of us pay down all our debt? No more credit card debt. Then what? The banks shit the bed?

This is spooky. Nuclear accidents are a terrible thing. If you haven't yet, I highly suggest watching Chernobyl, the mini-series released by HBO. While it is dramatized a lot, it does a good job of showing the massive undertaking it took to get Chernobyl under control and to safe levels.

Artists get paid such a penance for putting their works up on these streaming sites. It doesn't surprise me in the slightest that some artists refuse to do so, even if it would get them more exposure and a larger audience. Youtube pays jack shit now a days. Most Youtube channels I watched regularly have switched over to either Twitch or another video hosting service. Although I am not sure how much good it will do them, as content creators don't have too many choices when it comes to free hosting of videos/content.

Good luck goob! I'm sure that the new pup will never replace your Layna, but can certainly be a new companion on this crazy ride we call life.

Man if I put lipstick on my cat's asshole, he would be super pissed. Surprised that kid got away unscathed.

Honestly this is one of the biggest challenges for electric vehicle makers. How are you going to sell something that most folks don't have the special equipment needed to charge the damn thing? It's a matter of solving inconvenience at this point. No one wants to wait around and charge their vehicle for several hours, while it takes 2 minutes to fill up a tank of gas. Until fast charging stations are as abundant as gas stations, most folks won't buy electric.

Fair enough. My Aunt and Uncle SCUBA'd for years and always wanted to bring me along. I'll see about going to a training course. I'm in California so I'm sure there is one nearby.

Fascinating video about the Waterloopbos. I had no idea that the Netherlands were so flood prone.

I've always wanted to learn how to dive. I wanted to see the coral reefs before they are destroyed by our ignorance. Unfortunately, I don't think I'll be able to.

The world beneath the waters is like what? 30% explored? There is a whole lot we don't know about the ocean, and it's a shame that we're most likely destroying a large chunk of it before we actually know about it.

EDIT - Just looked it up. We have currently only explored 5% of the world's oceans. Go figure.
