  2. Even a normal rainstorm will dump tons of raw sewage in the local waterways. A lot of NYC's water treatment plants are so old they don't provide any filtration in the event of an overflow. They were sued by the EPA over this but got a reprieve, so no word on when the upgrades will be done.

    "I’m tired of putting on the charade of being straight. I grew up in a very small town that isn’t too accepting of diversity. There was one gay kid and one black kid in my school and both were bullied mercilessly. I didn’t partake in the bullying – I’m the kind of person who stays away from conflict, even when I probably should confront something – but I just stood by and let the jocks tease the only gay person in town who had the guts to be himself. For that, I’m ashamed. I wish I could go back and do it all over. But I can’t. All I can do is offer my apologies."

    Powerful words, Tony. They can't have been easy to say and I applaud you for saying them out loud. Every voice helps build a platform for others to also take a stand.

    Wish there was a way for you to know that your high school's single gay bullied kid and single black bullied kid get to hear your words.

  8. Just in case anyone is interested, the hexagonal pattern has been reproduced experimentally. Until recently, Cassini could not obtain clear images of Saturn's north pole as it was winter on Saturn, with Saturn's north pole in continual darkness (plus, a year on Saturn is much longer than a year on Earth).
