Topic: USS Maine Sinks, Prompting the US to Declare War on Spain (1898)
Posted: Friday, February 15, 2019 1:58:29 PM
It's clear that Spain did not do something deliberate, it made no sense to pick on the USA. What it's not clear is if it was set by Cubans or Americans or simply an unintentional accident. After the war Spain had to cede not just Cuba or Puerto Rico but also even lands that had no independentism claims...

This idiom is literally in other languages too. Very logical and direct.

Topic: Texting

It's not that I'm old, but I find kind of sad how quite often people just walk along the streets with their phones almost attached to their faces texting and doing stuff. I prefer to use those moments to relax my eyesights and just relax, but some people just cannot let it go. The other day I went to a restaurant and EVERYONE was just texting instead of talking to one another. I found it pretty creepy.

But I guess everyone is free to do what they please, don't want to sound too judgamental :p

Maybe I'm nitpicking but I'm glad we're moving away from the term "colored".

Circumstances and external factors sometimes make it hard to keep promises up.

I guess it's as saying "I reached my sanity's end".
Topic: Anthracite Coal First Burned as Residential Heating Fuel (1808)
Posted: Monday, February 11, 2019 7:29:29 AM
Even if this or coal haven't been used for a long time already as a mainstream method to heat homes, you still can see the effects after many years all over certain classical buildings that got smoked for decades when everyone in cities were burning this stuff at home.
