Unseen progress, dental version: In '79, when my dentist got her DDS, she was told most middle-class ppl wd lose most of their teeth and need dentures by age ~60. Now, 40 yrs later, that's simply not true--most ppl keep their teeth in their 80s. The #1 cause? Fluoridation.

Film pitch.. Trump drugged and moved to a replica Whitehouse, where he carries on thinking he’s governing. Millions spent on hiring actors to play his staff, Senators, news anchors, people at rallies. There you go. Studios, your highest bid please.

Agree. There’s zero excuse these days for bike companies to instantly void bike warranties on trainers. These same companies sponsor Zwift events promoting their bikes on trainers, and sponsor WorldTour teams with their bikes on trainers for exposure. Can’t have it both ways. twitter.com/gplama/status/…

This is how Utah stocks fish in its mountain lakes. Utah's Department of Natural Resources says air drops are less stressful for the fish than a long journey by ground. More than 95% survive the fall. Utah DNR compares the fish to high divers diving into a deep pool of water. 🐟 pic.twitter.com/n9By2HusQe
