Wayne Allyn Root - seriously, look his face in the last gif.
This makes me so sick.
So this local radio station is having a telethon for the Children’s Miracle Network, which is cool ofc, but i noticed that the first three digits of 800 number to call (after the 800 ofc) are 456.
usually 456 and children are not a good combination, in my mind….
They also felt the need to include the word ‘miracle’ in the name of their organization thus ensuring that Torchwood fans will forever stay far far away.

If Earth Had Rings
First off, they would be really pretty to look at. They would also dominate the sky in both night and day at exactly the same place as they would never rise nor set. And at night you would see the Earth’s shadow swing across the rings, like in the 4th photo here.
However, life would be very different on Earth if this were the case. Nocturnal animals would have a hard time being nocturnal, as the light reflecting from the rings would illuminate the night.
Because we are closer to the Sun than Saturn is, the rings would be more rocky than ice, making them less bright but still pretty bright. In fact, you would see far fewer stars at night (living anywhere other than the equator or the arctic circle) because of the light pollution and not to mention ruin most meteor showers because of that.
During the day the rings would block sunlight in certain regions of the planet creating wild weather cycles and affecting plant life as well. So basically, they would be definitely pretty to look at but they would also make a whole lot of things screwy.
