Britain has a law against using footage from a session of Parliament in a comedy show (according to John Oliver, speaking in early 2019).

(If you know some music theory, the music theory post might be interesting,
but I'd assume the linguistics one is either uninteresting or incomprehensible.)

Jackie Chan, the action-film actor known for doing his own stunts, is also a classically trained singer (according to Wikipedia).

Suez Canal facts:
Ships that are over a certain weight limit must offload part of their cargo onto
smaller ships before passing through the canal (to avoid scraping the bottom).

In 1963, America considered creating an alternative route to the Suez Canal
by using hundreds of nuclear bombs to blast a waterway through the Negev.

When Egypt closed the canal for 8 years between the Six-Day and Yom Kippur Wars,
fifteen ships and their crews that had been midway through the canal remained stuck
there until the canal reopened. For more info: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Yellow_Fleet

Zoos are sometimes requested to allow their medical equipment to be used
for scans of highly obese patients who do not fit into standard machines.

Seems rather a shame he ended up at war with Israel. (Not just for his sake, either - that
water-pumping idea of his was crucial to the Egyptian offensive of the Yom Kippur War.)

Woodrow Wilson suffers from the same problem that every man who believes himself to be perfectly
logical suffers from - he isn't perfectly logical. But because he doesn't recognize that sometimes his
emotions get the best of him, there's no internal check on his emotions getting the best of him. So
like everybody who thinks they're perfectly logical, he's less logical than the average person. - A podcast

(Don't worry about what you're missing; this might have been the best thing ever said on that show.)

"Of course, my program also thinks Cesar and Alexian are counterpicks to Ottavia using this method, so I don't know
how much faith you want to put in that. I suspect it's doing something stupid like 'Alexian's won 0 out of 5 matches
against Ottavia, but our data says he should have won -6 out of 5. He's doing better than expected!' "

@Randomex  i thought you'd like this http://nowiknow.com/help-me-test-a-new-card-game/

I've saved the ruleset and might look at it one of these days. I'd probably have a better
experience with Regicide, another standard-deck game which I'm in the same position with.

"Objectification theory posits that girls and women are typically acculturated to internalize an observerís perspective as a primary view of their physical selves. This perspective on self can lead to habitual body monitoring, which, in turn, can increase womenís opportunities for shame and anxiety, reduce opportunities for peak motivational states, and diminish awareness of internal bodily states. Accumulations of such experiences may help account for an array of mental health risks that disproportionately affect women: Unipolar depression, sexual dysfunction, and eating disorders. Objectification theory also illuminates why changes in these mental health risks appear to occur in step with life-course changes in the female body."
 - from the abstract of the paper Objectification Theory: Toward Understanding Women's Lived Experiences and Mental Health Risks

I haven't read the paper, but I'm curious about the reactions of the people here to that general idea.
