    [–] Drunk girl dodges a bullet by a hair NorthernLove1 -1 points ago in gifs

    About 1 in 12 to 1 in 8 college-aged men have already raped someone.

    Let me quote directly from a research article by experts on college rape. This is a quote from the first page of "Impulsivity and sexual assault in college men" by Mouilso, Calhoun, & Rosenbloom, in Violence Vict 2013; 28(3): 429-42...

    "8%-14% [of male college students] report acts that meet the legal definition for rape (i.e., nonconsensual attempted or completed oral, anal, or vaginal penetration; Koss, Gidycz, & Wisniewski, 1987; Voller & Long, 2010; Zawacki, Abbey, Buck, McAuslan, & Clinton-Sherrod, 2003."

    [–] ELI5: Why is coconut oil considered healthy, even though it is so dense with saturated fat? NorthernLove1 1 points ago * (lasted edited 2 months ago) in explainlikeimfive

    This, IMHO, is a good video arguing (correctly) that saturated fat is indeed bad for you... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JsVApece-Yw

    Here is a 55 second WebMD video summarizing the same point... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=okxk5WbG3Gc

    WebMD is a pretty good source of info on this. The first video cites a number of Harvard scientists as well.

    And there is this from Harvard... https://www.health.harvard.edu/staying-healthy/the-truth-about-fats-bad-and-good

    [–] ELI5: Why is coconut oil considered healthy, even though it is so dense with saturated fat? NorthernLove1 1 points ago in explainlikeimfive

    Translation: you should believe people who are real experts, not on the basis of their being mere authority figures, but on the basis of their knowing a ton more than most anyone else on the subject.

    [–] ELI5: Why is coconut oil considered healthy, even though it is so dense with saturated fat? NorthernLove1 3 points ago in explainlikeimfive

    The best sources are high-level peer reviewed scientific journal articles that are heavily cited by other experts in the field that have tenure at high-level universities. https://www.npr.org/sections/13.7/2017/04/07/522992390/why-expertise-matters

    [–] VTI vs VITPX ... why are returns different? NorthernLove1 2 points ago in Bogleheads

    VITPX tracks exactly the same stocks as VTI except VITPX is .02% cheaper. You were not looking at a comparison that includes all the dividends. Once everything is compared, there will be a 0.02% difference.

    [–] Columbine happened 20 years ago today. Redditors that were in High School at the time, what was the ensuing week like? NorthernLove1 2 points ago in AskReddit

    Columbine was so odd for us at the time, since a mass shooting at a school had never happened in my (young HS) life (that I could remember at least). Now schools shootings and mass shooting seem to happen every week, so it isn't as big of a deal (although it SHOULD be). When I grew up, the Military-style Assault Weapons were extremely uncommon, and so it wasn't so easy to do a mass shooting of so many people. Now we live in a world where anyone can get assault weapons that are designed to kill many people quickly. So, not surprisingly, we have many more mass shootings.

    I preferred to go to HS before assault weapons became so popular in the US.

    https://psmag.com/news/assault-weapons-ban-decreases-school-shooting-deaths

    Everyone I knew growing up had a .22 rifle in their room, and every family had a bolt action hunting rifle and a 3-round pump shotgun. But no one I knew had an AR-15 or an AK-47. I knew one family with their father's service rifle from Korea on the wall (an M-1 Garand), but he never used it. Gun culture was different then, and was mostly about sport shooting and hunting. The NRA, which I belonged to as a kid like everyone else, was entirely a hunting and sport shooting organization focused on gun safely. The NRA in the 1980s advocated for sport shooting and hunting; that was it. The NRA did not advocate for self-defense back then, and never said anything about legalizing military weapons. Now the NRA is mostly a lobbyist organization for the gun industry, IMHO. The NRA today isn't my youth's NRA. There is a really good book about how the NRA went from a sports shooting/safety organization to a gun lobbyist organization.

    [–] Why are there people who don't believe Global Warming is real? NorthernLove1 0 points ago in NoStupidQuestions

    "Global Warming SCIENCE" Denial...

    It is more helpful to talk about people who deny the SCIENCE of Global Warming. There is international scientific consensus about a lot of issues concerning Global Warming . Many, many people in the U.S. deny some substantial part of this science but accept some of it too. So some people will accept that Global Warming is occurring but deny CO2 plays a substantial role, or deny that cutting back on emissions will mitigate it, or deny humans have anything to do with it. Many (if not most) Republicans in the U.S. deny at least some of the accepted science about Global Warming, even when they accept some of it as well.

    In other developed countries, far more people accept the consensus science of GW. Republican propaganda has swayed many in the U.S.

    [–] Best donuts in Duluth? NorthernLove1 1 points ago * (lasted edited 2 months ago) in duluth

    Johnson’s Bakery in West Duluth is the best in town, but it is merely okay. Not great. A Dozen Excuses is far worse (imagine crappy superone donuts with fancy toppings). Dunkin is a joke. There are no good donuts in Duluth.

    The World's Best Donuts in Grand Marais is very good, but too far.

    [–] Best lent fish fry in Duluth? Trying to find one for Friday the 8th of March. NorthernLove1 4 points ago in duluth

    I made some phone calls and the following Catholic Churches are having fish fries TODAY March 8...

    • St Johns in Woodland, Duluth
    • St Rose/St Raphael's Catholic Church in Hermantown
    • St Anthony's Catholic Church in Superior

    **St Benedict's in Duluth is having fish fries starting March 15. St Benedicts is not far from St Johns.**

    These churches have fish fries for most (if not all) of the Fridays during Lent. Just call their office during office hours and they can tell you. They are really good, and children usually eat free (check their webpage or call for pricing, but it is usually pretty reasonable).

    [–] Best lent fish fry in Duluth? Trying to find one for Friday the 8th of March. NorthernLove1 2 points ago * (lasted edited 3 months ago) in duluth

    The Knights of Columbus at St Benedict's Catholic Church on Arrowhead and Kenwood have done a great fish fry during lent for years, but I do not see it posted on their website.

    St Rose/St Raphael's Catholic Church in Hermantown is having a fish fry Mar 8, Mar 22, Apr 5, and Apr 12. More info here:

    http://www.straphaelandstrose.com/

    St Anthony's Catholic Church in Superior is doing it every Friday during lent this year. Here is their website detailing their fish fries for lent 2019: https://stanthonychurchwebsite.wordpress.com/2019/02/19/lenten-fish-dinner/

    Here is a 2016 website that detailed the many Duluth Catholic fish fries that were IMHO very tasty. I have no idea if they are all doing them this year (I hope they are, and they always have in the past). I will go to one almost every week if they do.
