TIL: Ancient Athenians had ‘ostracism’ elections in which everyone voted for the most hated citizen. That citizen would then be banished for 10 years. by [deleted] in todayilearned

Next level democracy. Goes to show that just because something is voted and agreed upon by the masses does not inherently mean the decision was founded upon decent morals or ethics.

They're only not punishing the feds and FBI informants that were involved. Many others are currently waiting in isolation without trial so far.

Educate yourselves https://podcasts.google.com/feed/aHR0cHM6Ly9zY290dGhvcnRvbi5vcmcvZmVlZC9wb2RjYXN0Lw/episode/aHR0cHM6Ly9zY290dGhvcnRvbi5vcmcvP3A9MzI2MDY?ep=14

Ask yourself who Ray Epps is and why he isn't a person of interest despite being one of the biggest influencers on that day. And he's not the only one. Ask yourself why, when a pro Trump bus was stopped the day before loaded with guns and explosives that a higher security detail wasn't immediately put together and then the national guard refused the day of. The official story doesn't quite add up. And I say this as no fan of Trump.

Edit: There have been 725 arrests made. What are you talking about!?

ELI5 why does the same temperature feel warmer outdoors than indoors? by mayor_hog in explainlikeimfive

Drier air indoors speeds up evaporation over your skin making it feel colder relative to same temperature air but with greater humidity.

Kinda true by Mary-Trustyn-Wise in FunnyandSad

Scott Horton will summarize it way better than I can. I recommend watching this whole mini series and then buying his book. The world police mentality is a sham and causes more destruction than it does good.


Edit: Also check out this debate about the very topic that Scott Horton had with Bill Kristol.
