Be aware: forget 10 and 2

Cruising at 14mph and above, DON"T drive with a hand at 12 o'clock. Because of airbags, the 10 and 2 position, once the common wisdom of driver's ed classes, is also dead (or at least it should be).

The proper position is 9 and 3, while the Italian-esque 8 and 4 is more than acceptable.

Most modern steering wheels have "thumb hangers" that
naturally position your hands at 9 and 3, so you won't smack yourself if an airbag deploys.

Millions of flamingos!

Aerial snapshots: Shoreline of Kenya's Lake Nakuru turn bright pink as they're filled with millions of flamingos.

Despite their apparent large numbers, flamingos are considered as threatened species due to their very specific feeding of blue-green algae and breeding requirements.
So let us all do our share to protect their habitat.

Most poisonous mushroom on Earth

Amanitas - Destroying Angel
amanitas mushroom.png


Location: Europe and in the United States.

In Europe, the blossoms vary in color from pale-green or yellow-olive and along both the east and west coasts in the United States. However, they range from white to light brown in the rest of the United States.
Amanitin can be detected in the blood almost immediately. The first physical symptoms are usually nausea, vomiting, and bloody diarrhea. After an early feeling of slight discomfort, there is a sudden onset of extreme stomach pain, violent vomiting, intense thirst, and cyanosis of the extremities. Jaundice of the eyes and skin can also occur if the liver is badly affected. The patient remains conscious almost to the end, with only brief intervals of unconsciousness occurring between long lucid periods before lapsing into a coma followed by death.

Antidotes and Treatments: There are no known antidotes for Amanita poisoning. However, victims have survived after receiving liver transplants.
