    The lady didn't look like much of a swimmer. Sounds like a 911 call doesn't automatically ping a GPS location like a 111 call does here which would add to the confusion, but yeah, getting a swift water rescue team there would take time even if there was one and they knew where to go.

    I wonder what the calorie expenditure in Go tournaments is.
    People think they understand their own mortality, even when that understanding has just changed.

    The article says it's because of stress and that makes sense to me...I rarely felt such whole-body stress reactions outside of chess tournaments.

    The terrible thing was that they always provided junk food like pizza and donuts at tournaments. Sugar highs don't help anyone.

    A surgical cure for Resting Bitch Face. IDK, I think some women look totally hawt with it. I'd also think depending on profession, it might not be something you'd want to lose. There was an atty who had the best rbf at one of my old studio jobs. I'd think she'd do better in litigation. Like, just walking into the room, I could hear clients telling opposing counsel, "Settle! Just do it now and quickly."

    A couple of things I'd say are misleading about the title. It says people are flocking for it but it gives no numbers about how popular it is. #2, the lady looks closer to 50 than 40.

    Yeah more like drooping bitch face.

    Anyway, petrifying.
