    Strange. I wonder if it's creating an element that doesn't have any content but does have padding giving it a height and width On mobile so can't double check with web inspector .

    Because science is designed to be broken, the common sense of conservation of momentum is a new concept (as well as all of physics) and we should allocate as much time and resources to attempt to debunk it as it would open up a playground of possibilities of it were done so.

    We learn a lot either way, such is science, progress, and innovation.
    Scientific laws are made to be broken.

    I think nsfl is a bit much, but it may be the best thing at the moment. This is a great documentary, one of the best I've ever seen, but this is not for the faint of heart.

    For comparison:

    In 2018 there were 2548 murders in the UK, Japan, and (East, West) Germany (287M People) if we take a step farther and include France then we are at 3372 murders (and a total of about 350M people)

    In America there were 16,214 murders (328.2M People).

    1981 - USA had a murder rate that was 4.5 times more than three countries combined.

    2018 - USA had a murder rate that was 4.8 times more than four (technically five including both sides of Germany, six if we now include Scotland as part of the UK statistic and seven if we count Northern Ireland) countries combined.

    Trust me, you don't want your (assuming) politics turning into our politics. The last democratic/republican leadership elections that went that way did no justice and just fragmented the already severely fragmented bases and just delayed time to actually get things done.

    I can see why on the surface this would be a fine thing to have more choice, but it's sort of the reason we have devolved into a severe two party system which is the farthest thing from being ideal.

    Another suggestion that I absolutely adore: multiple user profiles to log in and out of, even 'switching accounts' is incredibly fast these days.

    One for work, the other for play. Helps keeps things marginally separated since they are in their own way, their own physical spaces.
