This came up in my Facebook memories today, something made for me by the late, great Rich Lane:

A rundown on all the recent MCU characters:

Meet the New MCU Characters in Phase 4 | Den of Geek

This three-digit number has been established for the entire United States to simplify calling for help if anyone is considering suicide.

A friend (importantly) called to my attention that it is not necessary to dial "#", just the number.  

An exhaustive, but user-friendly, article about how ALL the Disney+ shows relate to the MCU movies.

Our first significant travel of any kind since COVID hit, bookended by two local festivals that have returned for the first time in two years:

Great video! Where did you travel to?

Thanks! It's in the description, but we went to Sydney, Nova Scotia, a trip bracketed by the return of two local music festivals.

Fun fact: the briefly-appearing WWI cosplayer with the pipe is a regular in several Canadian historical documentaries.

It looks cool (and by "cool" I mean cooler than the 108 degree days we've had in Texas the last two days in a row). 

We had good weather, but we're on the ocean quite a bit north of Texas, so the temperature ranged from up to the low 30 or so during the day (but mostly not quite that high) and often down to the high teens at night. In American, think an upper range in the high 80s and a lower range in the low 60s. A quick check of the records reveals 108 Fahrenheit to be the highest recorded temperature, ever, local to me (and that was in 1936). In 1935 Nova Scotia, where we were, hit a record 101 in the south of the province. I do not want to know 108 degrees (42 here), though some of my extended family have experienced such temperatures in India.

Now, if you want to start comparing low temperatures, I've experienced -35 C, which is 31 below 0 in Fahrenheit.  And we're not even getting into the far north of the country. There's an old joke in the far north that a cold day is defined as one where your spit hits the ground as ice.

I heard it  got up 40 C / 104 F in London (UK) today, and that's unheard of for over there.

There should be a superhuman whose superpower is to teleport dangerous superhuman combatants (Superman and Zod for example) to uninhabited areas so they can brawl to their heart's content without injuring innocent bystanders or causing major property damage.

If they were funded by Damage Control, even better.
