@Tricky003  @ravishankarasuWell , if seconds matter to you then, by all means, add the ice first. But generally you can drop ice into a cup of liquid faster than you can pour liquid into a cup of ice.

@kfc  @JupiterLunacyDear  Colonel, First, Why haven't you been promoted to General yet? Second, I have no problem with newly discovered Saturnian moons named for three Norse roosters and their Muse. In America we consume a million chickens per hour. The least we can do honor yardbirds in this way.

Look what happened the last time you didn’t vote.

In school, students cheat because the system values high grades more than students value learning.

I dream of a world where the truth is what shapes people's politics, rather than politics shaping what people think is true.

Odd. No one is in denial of America’s Aug 21 total solar eclipse. Like Climate Change, methods & tools of science predict it.

Imagine how much more advanced society would be today if women, who comprise half the world’s brain power, were socially & intellectually enfranchised from the beginning of civilization.
