    [–] Bill Nye believes that science can make America great again: “It really is, for me, unpatriotic to deny science” erkdaclerk 2 points ago in EverythingScience

    While I agree with other commentors that a lot of American "patriotism" is just thinly disguised machismo, I do think there is more to it than that. Americans are an incredibly diverse people with the only unifying factor in many cases being that we are all American. I think the patriotism helps us remember that we are all one people even if we don't always agree.

    [–] Now that Black Panther is the first billion dollar MCU movie without RDJ, which one(s) will be next? erkdaclerk 13 points ago in boxoffice

    Captain Marvel has the benefit of being Marvel's first film with a female lead. Enough to do a billion? Probably not, but it might be a huge deal.

    [–] Kentucky Jail Sends Woman To Court With No Pants erkdaclerk 6 points ago in PoliticalVideo

    The woman in custody mentioned that a lot of girls at the jail we're being kept in similar conditions. I wonder if anything has been done about it yet.

    [–] A Sanders-Warren ticket could win big in 2020 erkdaclerk 5 points ago in Political_Revolution

    He's up for reelection this year, so a Dem could possibly be in office by then.

    They start to associate humans with food.

    [–] FCC chair Pai receives NRA gun award for courage erkdaclerk 27 points ago in politics

    They are also the people who are constantly getting offended by protestors and people spouting views they don't believe in.

    [–] Other than Hitler’s mustache, what style or fashion was completely ruined by negative association? erkdaclerk 36 points ago in AskReddit

    For those out of the loop, that "eagle screech" that is so synonymous with bald eagles is actually the sound of a red tailed hawk. Bald eagles actually sound pretty lame so film editors have been using the hawk sound instead.

    [–] Russian Ice Skater Evgenia Medvedeva skating to Sailer Moon erkdaclerk 1 points ago in pics

    This almost feels a little coincidental as a distraction from all the Russia news.

    [–] Not a great week for me erkdaclerk 412 points ago in AdviceAnimals

    Isn't that true with all investing?

    [–] TIL Pangaea was not the first supercontinent. That honor goes to the billion year old landmass known as Rodinia. The continents routinely split apart and come back together, a process known as the supercontinent cycle. erkdaclerk 60 points ago * (lasted edited a month ago) in todayilearned

    We actually are on our way to becoming a supercontinent again! Australia will collide with Southeast Asia, Africa will push northward into Europe, and the Americas are moving east toward Africa/Europe. The new supercontinent is known as Pangaea Ultima and will be formed in roughly 250 million years.

    Edit: The Americas are actually heading West and will collide with Asia. The Atlantic is widening, pushing the Americas and Africa/Europe away from each other.
