Hundreds of partiers converged on St. Marks Place in the East Village Friday night — Coronavirus pandemic be damned. Crowds of at least 200 were seen drinking outside for hours, most without face masks, on the stretch between Avenue A and First Avenue alone. Revelers lounged against Citi Bike racks or strolled with cups of beers and hard seltzers tucked in koozies in what felt like a giant bar crawl. “The way I see it, it’s like already past the 8th; that’s my marker,” said Sarah, a law student who lives in the East Village, in reference to the date marking the city’s entrance into its Phase One of reopening under state guidelines. “Now I’m just like, how long can you live in isolation scrolling on Tinder? You can’t do that enough already. You need to venture out,” she added. MTA buses and other vehicles crawled through the massive throng of carousers, who spilled into the street as others sat at the curb. (https://bit.ly/3fkbtWg)

A bizarre snapshot of the surface of Mars has recently resurfaced along with the conspiracy theory that it shows a human bone. Some people think they can see a femur in rubble on the Red Planet but this theory was debunked by NASA long ago. The photo was actually taken back in 2014 by the Curiosity Rover’s MastCam. It’s still used by conspiracy theorists to claim that there was once human life on Mars.

There is some good that comes from Facebook, but one of the biggest reasons to quit: it’s a giant time-suck. It’s estimated that the average casual user (58 minutes per day on Facebook) who has been active on the site for 10 years has wasted upwards of 140 entire days of their life scrolling and liking and commenting on pictures and posts.

A little rudeness can go a long way in the fight to curb jaywalkers. Experiments conducted by students at a university in China showed that warning signs written with insulting messages had greater impact than those with nicer messages. A sign reading “Jaywalkers are ugly” placed at an intersection proved to be the most effective, reducing cases of jaywalking by about 40 percent.

Tornados used to be called "twirlblasts" and "twirlwinds" in the 18th century. If you lived in the 18th century, you might have referred to tornados using the words "twirlblast" or "twirlwind." Honestly, we might need to bring these back!

former Hernando, Florida Commissioner who was charged with running a
brothel has filed to run for his old seat. Two years ago, Nick
Nicholson made national headlines when the then-Hernando County
commissioner was charged with giving room and board to prostitutes in
exchange for sex and running a brothel from his Spring Hill home.
After the 2018 arrest, Nicholson was blasted by the local Republican
leadership. He was suspended by the governor and resigned his seat.
As a first-time offender facing misdemeanor charges, he ended up
taking a plea deal and paid a fine of $729. Now he wants his old job
back. He filed paperwork early Monday, the start of official
qualifying for local political offices, to run again for the District
1 commission seat. The Hernando County Republican executive committee
will not support him in his new run for the seat, said Jeff Holcomb,
chairman of the committee and a sitting Hernando County commissioner.
MOMENT OF DUH: Brought to you by InsuranceChicken.com
He isn’t even her father, yet a Florida man let a 12-year-old girl drive his SUV and told her to speed because he wanted to be a “cool father.” 41-year-old Shaun Michaelsen told the arresting officer he is friends with the girl’s mother and that the girl and her friend were staying with him for a few days. He said the girl had asked earlier in the day if she could drive his Jeep, so he thought “it would be cool” and that he was trying to be a “cool father,” the police report said. Michaelsen also told officers he had been drinking. Jupiter Officer Craig Yochum said in his arrest report that he spotted the Jeep make an illegal U-turn and then speed away at about 12:10 a.m. Monday. He followed and the Jeep reached speeds of 85 mph in a 45-mph zone before he was able to pull it over. Michaelsen is charged with child neglect and allowing an unauthorized person to drive.
