It's the opposite of the "Donut Tour". Donut Tours hit the coasts, maybe Chicago or Detroit, Toronto or Montreal and somewhere in Texas. They're popular with bands that want to play the U.S. but maximize their earnings potential by avoiding cities that may or may not draw a lot of fans. The Stones, on the other hand, don't have to worry about people not showing up.

It's hard to believe they are still touring and Keith Richards is still alive! They have to be in there 80's by now or close to it.

^Yeah, pretty weird.  I wouldn't be surprised if one of the editors threw that in there since the package was so uproarious to begin with.  Kind of like the Easter Bunny cameo in the third minute. 

 

The footage of the battling between the police and students is amazingly dramatic.  I think it's a lot more than people would tolerate today.  The poor guy getting stepped on by the cop...in the midst of all of that wooden bullet crossfire.  I mean, this thing was wild

 

Then at the end they're talking about outfitting everyone with respirators next time so they can tear gas the students.  I mean, they're actually planning that!!!

the video is funny to see, but really this has been going on at colleges everywhere off and on since at least the 1960s. they used to tear gas up high st at osu on the regular. police come in and crack a few heads at ghetto couch burning at ud, manville madness at bgsu, etc. not to mention much worse at kent state.

 

one of my off-campus housemates was in the guard and we would joke about it. he said if the guard was called he would be sure to look for us to aim at. i think he was only half joking lol.

^For the record, I experienced tear gas at OSU, but I myself was not in the house that was tear gassed.  I was about 5 houses away but had my breathing seize up nevertheless, unless that's pepper spray.  Whatever it was, it was surprisingly severe as someone who wasn't even the target.

Meet the Cryptids Haunting Ohio’s Imagination

 

A new exhibition pays homage to some of the Buckeye State’s beloved—and infamous—legends.

 

BY JESSICA LEIGH HESTER

MARCH 11, 2020

 

 

ONE EVENING IN AUGUST 2016, Sam Jacobs and his girlfriend were playing Pokemon Go near the inky shore of Lake Isabella, in Loveland, Ohio. The lake is regularly stocked with catfish, bluegill, trout, and perch (to the delight of local fishers). But the couple saw something that struck them as more than a little odd—and it wasn’t a creature roaming their phone screens.

“We saw a huge frog near the water,” Jacobs told Cincinnati’s WCPO television station. “Not in the game,” he added. “This was an actual giant frog.”

 

Jacobs paused his play and snapped some grainy photos. They’re tricky to decipher, but appear to show a dark figure standing in the gently rippling water, light bouncing off its enormous, saucer-shaped eyes. Jacobs was convinced he was seeing a frog rearing up on its hind legs.

 

“I realize this sounds crazy,” he told WCPO. “But I swear on my grandmother’s grave this is the truth: The frog stood about four feet tall.”

a few space trivia factoids i learned on reddit:

 

 

-- nov. 2, 2000 was the last day every human being was on earth together. since then someone has been up on the iss.

 

-- the force of gravity at the ISS is actually 90% that of earth. they are in free-fall, nearly identical to what you experience on NASA's "vomit-comit" jet or a roller coaster.

 

-- pluto hasn't even made half an orbit around the sun since it was discovered in 1930.

 

-- it's very likely that the first deep space manned mission would be beaten to their destination by later, more advanced and faster missions.

The last one just blew my mind. I never thought about that. Poor guys/gals on primary mission. Though I would assume their initial findings would help the advancement of the following missions thus making that very scenario possible.

On Google Maps I just happened to notice these two Kroger stores a 1 mile drive from each other in Columbus and North Arlington. Why would Kroger continue to operate both stores? Does anyone know of any other Kroger stores closer together than this?

It's not that dissimilar with the Hyde Park Kroger and the one in Oakley Station.  Kroger on the right (though technically south since map is weirdly flipped) is for upper-class UA folks, like Hyde Park; the one on the left (or north) is for the typical 20-somethings living off Bethel Road, much like Oakley.
