This American uses an electric kettle. (Granted, I first had to use one in the UK to understand its glory.)

What a liar! He just wanted sympathy!

Ghost was dubious from the beginning.

Instead of 300,000 spectators, as multiple officials projected, Bloomington saw tens of thousands, according to early estimates. And while the smaller-than-expected crowds enabled the city to escape snarled traffic, the overestimates also kept some Bloomington residents from leaving their homes and attending the local events, from Switchyard Park to Memorial Stadium.

...

IU spokesman Mark Bode said the university hosted “tens of thousands of visitors and students across at least seven separate events,” including “nearly 10,000” at Memorial Stadium.

(The maximum capacity of the stadium is over 50,000.)

While between 50,000 and 100,000 eclipse viewers were expected in Nashville and Brown County, an estimated 20,000 showed up.

...

Jiffy Treet in Ellettsville, the epicenter of the total solar eclipse in Indiana, had a big day. More than 50 people watched the eclipse from a grassy field adjacent to the Ind. 46 ice cream shop.

Incidentally, the parking by Jiffy Treet was charging $50 per car, so that's not exactly shocking.

The eclipse was on a Monday. Most kids not near the path of totality had school. Why they thought so many thousands were coming is beyond me. This should have been easily predicted.

Associate Supreme Court Justice annual salary: $285,400

So if he turns it down, he either really likes being a judge (he doesn't act like it) or he's got a financial incentive beyond his salary to stay.

And I'm guessing he'll turn it down.

That's a longer sentence than many of the January 6th traitors.

The reason why they say this was murder:

Two weeks before the crash, she allegedly threatened to crash her vehicle when she was driving with Russo because she was upset over a disagreement they had. Russo called his mother and asked to be picked up, and a friend ended up retrieving him. In a phone call with Russo, the friend allegedly overheard Shirilla say, “I will crash this car right now,” prosecutors said in court documents.

This isn't a drunk driver, or a thrillseeker, this is someone with murderous intent.

I agree 100%. If they are going to make an announcement about lemmy.world, they need to do it on lemmy.world. We're not all on the Discord. I, for one, don't want to be.

Let me get this straight- they want mods to have live business meetings with them? As if they're employees?
