I want to go to this exact point and run around it saying “I’m in Sweden!” I’m in Finland!” “I’m in Norway!” until I get tired

i aspire to great things in life

According to Google Maps, that point is in the middle of a small lake.

So we’ll do it in January when it’s frozen.

actually that’s why they’ve helpfully dropped a big-ass cement block with a bridge surrounding it in the middle of the lake: for the express purpose of doing what OP aspires to do

I’ve done this in the US where Massachusetts, Rhode Island, and Connecticut all come together, but this would be even cooler.

QUILTING PALEOBIOLOGY

Silurian Quilt
by ~Saberrex   [Jeremy Herz]
Artisan Crafts / Textiles / Quilting

A quilt in which a Silurian ammonite is pursued by the distant Pterygotus, a giant sea scorpion some 7 feet long.

A lot of quilters use their art to portray different elements of science, and that’s what I’m highlighting this week. (Tuesday-Saturday, as I got behind this week.)

Forget the spreadsheet, here’s an easy flowchart to know if a women owes you sex

Microsoft Excel took a turn for the explicit this week when the Internet learned the once-innocuous office tool was being used in a dispiriting new bro-trend: using the software to track of the number of times their partners refuse sex. Yes, #sexspreadsheets are a thing, presumably because some men still believe that owning of a penis entitles them to unlimited sexy times.

And how hard is it to land even a minimum-wage job? This year, the Ivy League college admissions acceptance rate was 8.9%. Last year, when Walmart opened its first store in Washington, D.C., there were more than 23,000 applications for 600 jobs, which resulted in an acceptance rate of 2.6%, making the big box store about twice as selective as Harvard and five times as choosy as Cornell. Telling unemployed people to get off their couches (or out of the cars they live in or the shelters where they sleep) and get a job makes as much sense as telling them to go study at Harvard.

Scully: I think Howard Graves faked his own death.
Mulder: Do you know how hard it is to fake your own death? Only one man has pulled it off: Elvis.

Mulder: Don’t you have a life, Scully?
Scully: You keep that up and I’ll hurt you like that beast woman.
