Daniel Kim's Comments

I am amazed that any woman would give birth . . . twice. I cannot have but the utmost respect and awe for people who have such love and commitment that they would face ". . . Death by torture for each life beneath her breast" (per Kipling) not once, but multiple times.

Numbness? There are warming functions that let the water come out warm.
There is often a 'blow dryer' function as well, but the unit tested does not seem to have that feature.
The control panel is rather badly placed on all of these units. It would be better designed if it had a remote control that you could hold in front of you, even if attached by a data/power cord.
(I use a dry washcloth to dry off. It's clean already, so no problem.)

I am fortunate to habitually awaken at the same time in the morning without an alarm. When there is something critical for which I must be awake, or if I must be awake earlier than usual, I will set several alarms, spaced a few minutes apart, and not use a snooze button. My intention is to be up with the first alarm, but to have backup in case I don't make it.

If he got some of the eggnog into his lungs instead of his stomach, he did not technically 'drink' all of it. He used a combination of drinking and inhaling to dispose of the eggnog. I would disqualify him on that technicality.

Horsehair worms have a relatively simple life cycle for a parasite. Their larvae form a cyst that sticks to plants. These are eaten by crickets or grasshoppers or similar insects. A mantis might pick one up by eating an infested cricket. Upon ingestion, the cyst releases the larva, which lives inside the insect and matures into an adult worm. It may be eating the internal organs of the host, or perhaps lives on nutrients in the host insect's blood. When mature, the worm somehow causes the host insect to seek out water. I recall a horrible news story about a swarm of crickets that jumped, lemming-like, into a swimming pool, releasing swimming worms en masse. At times, these worms may release themselves from their insect hosts on the smallest hint of free water, such as rain or even a mopped floor.
Oh, you don't have to worry about being infested with horsehair worms. They only infest insect hosts.

How did it all fit? You may notice that we never see the head of the mantis as the worm is coming out in the jar. Obviously, the long worm was concealed in the glove, and was threaded through the mantis by the person holding it.
(OK, actually the worm was curled up inside the insect. It made room for itself by eating the insect's internal organs as it grew.)

Y'know, it's always great to see these compilations. People are indeed awesome. The potential for achievement in the spheres of the physical, intellectual and spiritual are almost unbelievable, and it is uplifting to see the abilities demonstrated by humans.

This seems like a terrible idea. There appears to be 100% access to the phones for the guy in the van. He could pull information from their phones while he has them, or install malware on them that will give him access to information at a later date.

This is also the site of a hellish sulfur mine, featured at Kuriositas.com.
The men who work here, without protective gear or machinery, break chunks of sulfur that form when sulfurous steam is cooled into pools of red molten sulfur. They protect themselves from sulfuric acid vapor with damp rags over their faces, and carry baskets with chunks of sulfur on their backs, climbing and walking several miles in and out of the crater.
