Falkirk Wheel - Falkirk Scotland
The Falkirk Wheel takes about as much energy as it would to boil about 8 kettles of water
What? WHAT? What? WHAAAT?
Wait isn’t that the thing from that movie with Jodie Foster and the aliens?
Apparently this is a real rotating boat lift from Scotland and according to the UK tourist website it is indeed so well balanced it actually takes only 1.5kWh of electricity per rotation and that makes me so happy.
Engineers are magicians.
my grandfather always had candy in his pockets, and one time when I got really sick and I was hospitalized my dad told him not to give me any candy. He pulled out his pockets to show he hadn’t even brought any and I got really sad but as soon as my dad walked out of the room he then proceeded to take off his hat and had 2 chewy chocolate candy toffees and 2 orange fanta toffees, and I’ll never forget the happiness and surprise I felt in that one moment in my entire life.

Her brother bought a bicycle to take her but it broke sometimes.
Her mother had to borrow money to buy food and there was no money left for anything else, the clothes she had were donated by people who knew her. The gym she went was a public one and the breakfast that was left was donated to her family.
Her coach, Keli Kitaura, knew that Rebecca had talent so she asked her mother if she (Rebecca) could live with her, so she wouldn’t miss practices anymore. They lived together for some time, but Keli had to move to Curitiba, a city far away from where they were living.
When she was settled in, Rebecca moved there and after some time Keli was hired by Flamengo (where Jade, the Hypolitos and a huge part of brazilian team go) and they both moved again. Now she and other 9 girls live with Keli and her husband.
She also has a contract with a telecommunications company and a salary of Flamengo, the brazilian team and bolsa atleta, a government assistance to athletes. With that money she helps her mother that doesn’t have any more depts and her 3 siblings are also doing gymnastics.
Just thought you all should know it :)

OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) — An Oklahoma City police officer was charged Friday with 16 counts including first-degree rape and sexual battery after being accused of assaulting at least eight women while on patrol.
Daniel Holtzclaw, 27, also faces charges of forcible oral sodomy and indecent exposure. Holtzclaw, a former standout football player in high school and college, was arrested Aug. 21. He remained in custody on a $5 million cash bond Friday, according to jail records.
He is accused of stopping women, who were all black and between the ages of 34 and 58, while on duty in Oklahoma City. Prosecutors allege that he raped two women and either fondled others or forced them to expose themselves, and police said there may be more victims.

I’m sorry, but if lesbians can control themselves in a girls only changing room with ass naked woman waltzing around. Then I figure men should be able to control them selves with clothed girls walking down the street. Just a thought.
honeymoon is an interesting term because an actual moon made of honey would imply space bees which is pretty horrifying
