Juggling Life Juggling Eggs

Alexandra, 19, currently in college and loving it! Humor, nature, art, science, politics and current events. Sometimes interesting facts and oddities. Things that tickle my fancy. I am a conservative, I am a swimmer and a student athlete. I love Marvel and King Arthur and the Kingkiller Chronicle. Tom Clancy reigns supreme.

So… a Giant red leech has been filmed sucking down a 27 INCH earthworm in the rainforests of Borneo for the first time. 

It’s like an Italian dinner horror movie.

The US and the USSR mutually decided on Mutually Assured Destruction (MAD). How? There is a treaty between them, limiting their defensive anti-ballistic missile systems. In other words, each could built bigger and bigger bombs, but they couldn’t build the defense systems to stop the bombs. Destruction was assured. And that’s how they avoided destruction! The Cold War was crazy, man.

But hey, we’re still here, so something worked.

Herculaneum (in modern Italian Ercolano) was an ancient Roman town destroyed by volcanic pyroclastic flows in 79 A.D., located in the territory of today’s commune of Ercolano, in the Italian region of Campania in the shadow of Mount Vesuvius.
It is most famous for having been lost, along with Pompeii, Stabiae, Boscoreal and Oplontis, in the eruption of Mount Vesuvius in AD 79 which buried it in superheated pyroclastic material. It is also famous as one of the few ancient cities that can now be seen in almost its original splendour, because unlike Pompeii, its burial was deep enough to ensure the upper storeys of buildings remained intact, and the hotter ash preserved wooden household objects such as beds and doors and even food. Moreover Herculaneum was a wealthier town than Pompeii with an extraordinary density of fine houses, and far more lavish use of coloured marble cladding. The discovery in recent years of some 300 skeletons along the sea shore came as a surprise since it was known that the town itself had been largely evacuated.

52 years ago, at the height of the Cuban Missile Crisis, second-in-command Vasilli Arkhipov of the Soviet submarine B-59 refused to agree with his Captain’s order to launch nuclear torpedos against US warships and setting off what might well have been a terminal superpower nuclear war.
The US had been dropping depth charges near the submarine in an attempt to force it to surface, unaware it was carrying nuclear arms. The Soviet officers, who had lost radio contact with Moscow, concluded that World War 3 had begun, and 2 of the officers agreed to ‘blast the warships out of the water’. Arkhipov refused to agree – unanimous consent of 3 officers was required and thanks to him, the world was saved from being scarred badly.
His story is finally being told the BBC is airing a documentary on it.

might just save the god damn world.

The Disney Channel used to air these little shorts about geniuses and historical people. At the end Genie would say, “Great minds don’t think alike. They think for themselves.”
