      Where's the fun in that? Seriously, I would not mind sending them to his ex as the only last thing she will ever get from him. However, it is one more fight that I don't have a need for.

        If you are emotionally invested in 'believing' something is true you have lost the ability to tell if it is true.

              Round heads are all the rage in China, so some Chinese parents are putting their babies in pricey headgear to make their skulls rounder

              01 November 2021
              • Parents are buying helmetlike molds to make their babies' skulls rounder, reports say.
              • This is because perfectly round heads are viewed as the beauty standard in China.
              • Other "head-correcting" products, from sleeping mats to special pillows, are also being snapped up.

              China's latest craze involves parents shelling out for helmets that they believe can help mold their babies' heads into ideal, rounded shapes.

              A report by Tencent News said the trend of putting corrective molds on babies' heads started this October, with parents flocking to stores to buy helmets for their children. These helmets resemble bowling balls and are supposedly catered to babies whose heads are flatter in the back. They involve the mold being strapped onto a child's head for extended hours, with the belief that this can help shape their soft, still-developing skulls into a more aesthetically pleasing, rounded shape, per the country's beauty standards.

              The South China Morning Post highlighted one particular account of a mother who made a post on the Quora-like forum Xiaohongshu, detailing the use of a piece of "miracle" equipment she found that she said helped "correct a baby's head shape." Titled "I took my baby to head-shape correction, despite my family's protests," the mother recounted the process of how she brought her 7-month-old daughter to a medical facility to get "head correction gear" custom-made for her.

              "I think wearing a head helmet has the same function as wearing braces, which is to correct a body part and make it more beautiful," the unnamed woman wrote in the now deleted post. "I have a flat head, and I know how painful it is for women who are chasing beauty. I don't want my kid to grow up and regret this part of herself."

              It's unknown how much this woman paid for her baby's head mold, but the Chinese news site Sohu reported that such devices can cost about $4,300.

              Separately, the Alibaba-owned shopping portal Taobao, China's answer to Amazon, sells a variety of head-correction devices for babies. These range from $20 head-shape-correcting pillows to $3 versions of the head-correction helmets to $15 sleeping mats to prevent infants from sleeping in ways that might "cause a flat head."

              The desire to have a round head has spread to social-media users on Weibo, the country's version of Twitter, who have started sharing tips and tricks on how to "say goodbye to a flat head," referencing methods to style one's hair differently to create the appearance of a perfectly round head.

              A Weibo trending topic (akin to a subreddit) called "How flat can one's head get" has spawned some 32,000 comment threads discussing how to "correct" or conceal one's head shape. Some Weibo users even referenced the K-pop star Jeon Jungkook of BTS fame, remarking on his coveted round head shape. Others discussed how to make their children's heads rounder, and they shared progress photos of various head-shape-correcting methods.

              "Look at my flat head. I asked my mother if it's because she made me sleep on my back to make my head flat on purpose. It looks like the back of my head got chopped off," wrote a Weibo user with the ID LiLvTingShiGeXiaoTianCai.

              "Your head shape determines your attractiveness. Give your children a good start and correct their head bones while you can," wrote the Weibo user DADD DaMin.

COVID has exacerbated it as initially producers in Asia were suppressed and Americans started buying more and more online. Prior to COVID Amazon's fleet of home delivery trucks was restricted to certain areas...now they are ubiquitous. I see 6 - 8 trucks in my neighborhood every single day.

                    The driver shortage is not going away anytime soon and we will have problems for a long time.

                    As for infrastructure...we are decades behind on what needs to be done...both new and repair. The infrastructure bill in the Senate now is desperately needed. And as for cost? Money now is ridiculously cheap...under 1% interest from the Fed. Spending on infrastructure is not going to damage the economy...it will only improve it.

                    The answer it seems varies depending on who you ask. Finger pointing galore generally means you are screwed.

                    But overall they agreed with you



                    And i was too optimistic. Things don't look like they're getting better

                            Apparently, at least according to Republicans today, this massive infrastructure bill is leading us down the road to socialism. That makes me think about what MAGA really meant. It would seem obvious that rebuilding American infrastructure would go a long way towards making America great again. Yet it seems I have the wrong idea about what it means. Is there someone who can help correct my idea...?

                              A devastating swarm of tornadoes ripped through six U.S. states, killing more than 70 people in Kentucky and leaving a trail of destroyed homes and businesses along a path that stretched more than 200 miles, officials said.

                              Dozens Dead After 'Most Severe Tornado Event In Kentucky's History'
                              11 December 2021

                              Dozens of people in the Midwest are believed to be dead after severe weather that caused multiple tornadoes struck late Friday night and early Saturday morning, tearing through several states including Kentucky, Illinois and Arkansas.

                              As of Saturday morning, at least 70 people have died in Kentucky alone, Kentucky Governor Andy Beshear said, and the death toll is expected to rise. President Biden called the destruction "devastating."

                              In Mayfield, Ky., a candle factory was hit, leading to multiple fatalities, Beshar said at a news conference earlier Saturday morning.

                              The devastation in the Mayfield area goes beyond the factory, and several surrounding counties are are pitching in with EMS help, as the main emergency services hub in the town itself was in the direct line of the storm, local officials said Saturday. The water tower was hit too, leaving the town without water.

                              Kentucky Emergency Management Director Michael Dossett said Friday night's tornado event may surpass the 1974 Super Outbreak as the deadliest in the state's history.
