Ever wonder why electronics don't work under water? Because the force-carrying boson of the electromagnetic force, the photon, can't swim, so it drowns before it can transfer the electricity. #coolsciencefacts

reddit diwhy quote
my favorite reddit post is probably a dude ripping on someone's underground bunker build
"Look, I get it. It's cool, looks like fun. If this was behind a secret door in the kitchen pantry, I'd think it was the balls. But as it stands, you essentially recreated the gas chambers at Auschwitz, except those had stairs to enter."
bad fake news
reporters shocked as trump ends press conference with "by november we should have those [n word]s out of there". pressed for comment he responded with 'oh, you're gonna do something now i say it out loud? fuck off you won't' followed by locking eyes with a reporter, outstretching his arms and walking backwards out of the room
the reporter in question later commented "i'm truly disgusted. if he asks for my input in next week's conference i'll definitely give him a piece of my mind"
uspol, fake news
wow really impressed by trump's somewhat coherent tweet storm where we explains that he wants to make it clear that yes, he is a fascist and while he doesn't partake in racism on a personal level that's just part of his package with the way fascism needs an out group. he reminds people that voting is anonymous so it's ok to just pretend you're voting for biden and act confused why he wins
uspol, history, fake news
Wow, reading up on Roe v. Wade I'm taken aback by Harry Blackmun's closing quote: "The government has no business interfering in the cycle of God as it pertains to a soul not yet independent. We cannot quench His thirst, His hunger, with offerings of life without sin. No, we must turn to our own and offer them to His kingdom. No man must meet their maker before their time lest they be turned away. The only salvation for us is eternal rest. Amen."
