More chance to find enough DNA to perhaps re-breed Mammuts ?
I officially hate you.
In our team call last night we discussed backups, especially since everyone has some time off coming up (my team is myself and my boss, plus three guys)
So my boss is going over who backs up who:
Dan covers Dave.
Dave covers Evan.
Evan covers Dan.
Dan, Dave, and Evan each have responsibilities to cover for Mary.
The takeaway seems to be that while a man can cover for a man just fine, it takes three men to do the work of one woman.
We're simple creatures.
I see your Baby Metal and raise you one Deadlift Lolita.

They're both professional wrestlers. She doesn't dress like this when she wrestles; he does.
This day keeps getting better .
Imagine people using heavy metal to tell children to drink their milk.
One does the work, and another puts make-up on the third.
Solar disruption of our magnetic field may have done in the Titannic. Apparently the Titannic sent out an SOS showing a 13 mile discrepancy between where the Titannic was and where the crew thought they were.
Well, that didn't last.
Today I learned that Bangladesh is smaller than Iowa in area, but has half the population of the US. I knew it was very densely populated, but I never realized just how extremely densely populated the country is.
It's partly that and partly that the US really has that much land it hasn't filled up yet.
So it seems something has happened to my nerves, and my ticklishness has gone nuclear.
I went for a pregnancy massage today, to help with my headaches and backpain. I've had a lot of massages from this guy before, and I've never been tickled in the slightest. But today was different ... my arms, hips, legs, and feet in particular had this really intense tickling sensation when he worked on those areas. I felt like I had bolts of electricity pouring through my body.
Don't get me wrong, I love being tickled. But that's for play, a massage is supposed to (at least partly) be for relaxation.
That sounds a little bit like restless leg syndrome, which I get late at night sometimes, when I get pins and needles and a crawling sensation in my legs when I'm lying down.
If it's skin-level ticklishness, you can use one of those scalp massagers with the multiple pointy prongs across your body for a couple minutes and it'll get rid of it for long enough for the massage.
Will Indian wisdom on forest management help suppress wildfires?
of course it will, I cant believe our politicians and bureaucrats took so long to listen
yes... Bangladesh is extreme
There are according to Worldbank data only 6 countries having more than 400 people per km2 land surface and Bangladesh really sticks out at already 1,240 and rising.
Ignoring city-states and tropical cruise-ship islands:
1. Bangladesh 1,241
2. Netherlands 511
3. Rwanda 499
4. India 455
5. Israel 411
6. Haiti 399
For comparison: the US at 36
In terms of environment high population density is extremely stressing.
In NL we have hardly original land surface nature left... less than 5% ?
Every bit of soil is cultivated for urban or agro... and almost everything that looks natural is in fact a manmade park.... bio-diversity and quantity heavily affected by urban & agro
Our natural-biological recuperation capacity per capita is extremely low although we try to develop more and more knowledge to cultivate and connect those "parks" so well that they can recuperate nature better.
The biggest natural "motorway" we are building over the years is North-South through our whole country to secure that migratory birds have food and places to get offspring. Lots of that is water-wetlands and some adjacent land surface converted from agro to natural. Expensive.
We need to convert at least 50% of agro to "nature" to reduce the stress and increase recuperation.
I fear Bangladesh is a full disaster in environmental terms.
According to DuckDuckGo search:
A big difference between England and the Netherlands is the amount of original nature in England... thanks to nobility wanting their hunting privileges
In NL we squashed the nobility real estate in the Dutch Republic period
