"When temperatures in Southwestern U.S. climb to over 100 degrees, the pavement can get hot enough to cause second-degree burns on human skin within 2 seconds, finds a new study. The pavement on a 111-degree day, for example, can get as hot as 147 degrees in direct sunlight."

Which is pretty damned critical to remember if you're walking a dog. I check surface temperatures whenever I'm walking my dog by using the back on my hand on the pavement. If it's too hot for me to hold it there, it's too hot for my dog's paws. It really makes me cringe when I see dogs almost hopping down hot streets behind oblivious owners.

I avoid taking Roscoe out during the heat of the day, or if I must, I stick to the shade and the grass and trees in our courtyard. He doesn't like being out in the heat anyway. I have the same problem with oblivious pet owners here, where we have a gravel dog yard, and people take their dogs out on the hot rocks. Get a clue, people.

Then there are nights like last night, when it was 104F at 9 PM when we had to go out for our evening walk. At least the sun wasn't actively irradiating the ground at that hour.

I know advertisers bastardizing memes is not a new thing, but these have been coming up on my feed, and the pain is to great to keep to myself.

For some reason I thought she died (the character), but according to the wiki she didn't. Despite not being a big Trek fan I am looking forward to the Picard series. I haven't seen any of the series that are newer than Voyager.

She fell down a turbolift shaft.

Hint: think about the way it would sound differently in each panel as well

It's a physics joke.

Avast! Get thee hence to the Dad Joke thread!

Y'know, John Mulaney has forever ruined Tom Jones jokes for me. I can't see one without thinking of the Salt and Pepper Diner, his bit that is the king of all Tom Jones related humor.

It's even blue and red shifted...

It obviously houses Medjed, the Egyptian Smiter god.

Ugh, every time I see a European town, it just makes me angry that I don't live there.

Southampton in the UK is lovely this time of year.

Who doesn't love a 6 month long strike by the binmen?

Yup, that actually happened earlier this decade. 6 months. Over a summer.

I would say buildings in Dresden have plenty of reason to be suspicious.

He said European

Sick burn. Or, I guess "savage" in the parlance du jour.

Actually that type of cadaveric testing allows for greater fidelity in understanding underbody blast injuries. Currently we use modified crash test dummies from the 1970s that were designed by the auto industry.
In the world of survivability, underbody blast testing only really came on the scene since Operation Iraqi Freedom and it wasn't well understood. Injuries from accelerative loading still aren't well understood and we need cadaveric testing to refine our injury assessments. So his mother's sacrifice will ultimately allow for better assessment of the amount of protection ground vehicles will provide to soldiers from underbody mines and IEDs.
