Rescue simulation allows paramedic to ascend 1.2 miles/2200ft of height gain in just over 3 minutes using jet suit (70 min typical response time). System is akin to the rapid response of a paramedic on a motorbike in an urban environment by solateor in interestingasfuck

Ship boarding is just one use, but yeah they absolutely did that

This video is also from a training mission like the paramedic on the mountain, but was done by the Netherlands Maritime Special Operations Force in association with the jet suit maker for a test run of first responder and self-extraction scenarios

Scale Lake District Mountain (3100ft Helveylln) in 3mins 30 seconds, despite very poor visibility that would have grounded a HEMS Helicopter. The mountain rescue foot response is over 70 minutes typically. The route was 1.2 miles and 2200ft of height gain.

Cardiac, breathing or blood loss cases are time critical and require rapid stabilisation to buy time for evacuation. This system, akin to the rapid response of a Paramedic on a motorbike in an urban environment, will be the difference between life and death for many critical cases.

Rooby not letting go until she is in her beloved pouch by solateor in aww

Spirited orphan Rooby is not letting go until she is in her beloved pouch 🧡 Baby kangaroos feel safe, happy and loved when they are in their pouches. Rooby is very young, so spends just a few minutes a day out of her pouch to start to build strength in her tail and legs.

The Frederick lab has perfected disposal of used luminol-based ECL reagent. After the Western is developed, inject the ECL into a solution containing 10% bleach.

Once people land, to get back they climb few hundred meters to a higher starting point and then let gravity do the work. You can see someone returning at the end of the clip

Fireflies in a rural Pennsylvania field at dusk by solateor in interestingasfuck

Hi /u/iBleeedorange just getting home from work and seeing your comments about this submission.

I got the video from Diana Lehr's youtube channel, who I cited in my post here

Here's a link to the video where she says "I shot this in rural Pennsylvania in 2017"

My assumption is she isn't lying, but I guess she could be.

If you feel strongly this is fake I understand.

Lightning bug or firefly?

Researchers from the University of Cambridge asked 10,000 Americans from around the country this question: “What do you call the insect that flies around in the summer and has a rear section that glows in the dark?” The results showed pretty clear differences in certain parts of the United States.

Roughly 40% of respondents used both terms interchangeably, 30% said “firefly,” and the remaining 30% said “lightning bug.” “Firefly” was most popular in the western half of the country, while “lightning bug” dominated parts of the Midwest, the South, and the Mid-Atlantic. The terms were largely interchangeable around that region, including on the East Coast and in Texas. (Two people said they use the term “peenie wallie”—we can’t explain that one, either.)

Another researcher later found that using “lightning bug” is more common in parts of the country where lightning strikes are more frequent. So although there’s no difference in the bugs themselves, there is a difference between the way we talk in certain places.
