Ik heb vanavond zelf stemmen geteld in Utrecht, en daar zag ik hetzelfde. Veel PvdA-stemmen, verrassend weinig SP, PVV en D66. GroenLinks was zoals vaker in Utrecht de grootste in dit stembureau.

It is also illegal in most countries to make false medical claims, so reporting this to the right authority in your country is a good idea.

Britain and the United States argued that the Diego Garcia base contributes to world peace.

The United States has sent fighter jets from Diego Garcia base to bomb Iraq and Afghanistan and the facility was used as a CIA interrogation centre after the September 11, 2001 attacks

Nice work by the article writer to add this information.

90% of anything is shit. But every once in a while a beautiful indie game does break through, like Kerbal Space Program or Factorio, with a unique concept.

I don't expect any results. The Irish data protection authority is the least strict in the EU, because Ireland is very dependent on multinationals.

<EX5> Why doesn't the moon fall down? Why doesn't it fall apart like meteors? by wizzwizz4 in AskScience

Because molecules in a gas all move with some speed. This speed can be high enough to a body's gravity. Rocks on the other hand do not move around but lie in one place.

The moon doesn't fall apart because it has enough mass to create significant gravity. At the surface of the moon the gravitational acceleration is 1/6 of Earth, which means that pieces of the Moon cannot just drift away into space. Gases however can easily escape with 1/6 gravity, which is why the Moon has no atmosphere.

I fully agree that subreddits supporting violence, such as physical_removal, are banned. The other one is a place full of racist jokes and I don't care much about it, but it should not be removed without a clear rule about it.
