None of that global mean anomaly is even remotely close to being right.

Not obvious from the map: Also Yiddish, but only in the strict literal significance.

The flash of light you saw in the sky was not a UFO. Swamp gas from a weather balloon was trapped in a thermal pocket and reflected the light from Venus.

Much better value and more comprehensive than just stating, "No facial hair allowed where the sealing surface touches the face."

Because no one could ever invent a new facial hair style that's not already on that chart.

Also why does every beard have bald patches under the lower lip at both sides? When I grow a beard it comes right up to my lower lip all the way across.

When I joined the navy, beards were allowed, and most sailors had one. Sometime around 1984 or so, they were banned.

I learned there was a lot of ugly under that hair.

I think I saw a statistic somewhere that attempting to summit Everest without supplemental oxygen increases the risk of death by about 13-fold (compared to the already risky proposition of attempting to summit Everest with supplemental oxygen). I guess people do it anyway to distinguish themselves from the mere tourists.

It's also cheaper and easier because you don't have to buy all the oxygen bottles and breathing equipment, and you don't need the extra people to lug all that gear up the mountain for you. Also less garbage (empty oxygen bottles) deposited all over the place - it's a filthy place up there with all the shit, and trash left by the hundreds of climbers every year.

A few dead bodies get left up there too, depending on where they die/fall. I suppose if a lot more dead bodies are left because they weren't using oxygen, that might balance out or even exceed the trash of the empty gas bottles.

↑ That's 3700x4726 and we have to be content with 1600 max?

I was thinking about this new rule: is there really an overhead for the forum? As I understand it, the image is just transmitted as a link and then it's up to the user's browser & ISP to show it without too much delay, correct?
