Target, Tumblr, and Winter: SS WARRIMOO EQUATOR INTERNATIONAL DATE LINE rhube: rockyp77: GREAT SEA STORY The passenger steamer SS Warrimoo was quietly knifing its way through the waters of the mid-Pacific on its way from Vancouver to Australia. The navigator had just finished working out a star fix and brought Captain John DS. Phillips, the result. The Warrimoo’s position was LAT 0º 31’ N and LONG 179 30’ W. The date was 31 December 1899. “Know what this means?” First Mate Payton broke in, “We’re only a few miles from the intersection of the Equator and the International Date Line”. Captain Phillips was prankish enough to take full advantage of the opportunity for achieving the navigational freak of a lifetime. He called his navigators to the bridge to check double check the ship’s position. He changed course slightly so as to bear directly on his mark. Then he adjusted the engine speed. The calm weather clear night worked in his favor. At mid-night the SS Warrimoo lay on the Equator at exactly the point where it crossed the International Date Line! The consequences of this bizarre position were many: The forward part (bow) of the ship was in the Southern Hemisphere in the middle of summer.  The rear (stern) was in the Northern Hemisphere in the middle of winter.  The date in the aft part of the ship was 31 December 1899. In the bow (forward) part it was 1 January 1900.

GREAT SEA STORY
The passenger steamer SS Warrimoo was quietly knifing its way through the waters of the mid-Pacific on its way from Vancouver to Australia. The navigator had just finished working out a star fix and brought Captain John DS. Phillips, the result. The Warrimoo’s position was LAT 0º 31’ N and LONG 179 30’ W. The date was 31 December 1899. “Know what this means?” First Mate Payton broke in, “We’re only a few miles from the intersection of the Equator and the International Date Line”. Captain Phillips was prankish enough to take full advantage of the opportunity for achieving the navigational freak of a lifetime.


He called his navigators to the bridge to check  double check the ship’s position. He changed course slightly so as to bear directly on his mark. Then he adjusted the engine speed.

The calm weather  clear night worked in his favor. At mid-night the SS Warrimoo lay on the Equator at exactly the point where it crossed the International Date Line! The consequences of this bizarre position were many:


The forward part (bow) of the ship was in the Southern Hemisphere  in the middle of summer. 

The rear (stern) was in the Northern Hemisphere  in the middle of winter. 

The date in the aft part of the ship was 31 December 1899.

In the bow (forward) part it was 1 January 1900.



This ship was therefore not only in:


Two different days,



Two different months,



Two different years,



Two different seasons



But in two different centuries - all at the same time!

What an absolute ledge.

 BABIES!!
 so the best thing about this is that bobcats, like just about every feline
 besides lions and domestic cats, are pretty solitary. they don't really have
 friends, they aren't really equipped to make friends
 domestic cats, on the other hand, do know how to make friends. they
 are friendly to the point that lots of feral cats live in colonies-the
 females hang out together, even raise kids together, and the males like
 to spend nonsexual time with their baby mommas. they groom each
 other, play around, and have a particular tail position to signal to one
 another- straight up with the tip curled- that they're friendly and
 happy to see cach other. cats learned how to be chill with each other in
 order to take full advantage of human food sources: an ancient granary
 supplies enough rats for a lot of cats, as does a modern lady with a big
 bag of frisky bits, so it would be a waste of time energy for any one cat
 to try and stake the entire foodsource out for exclusive use. less fighting
 means more eating and resting which means a longer, nicer life and a
 lot more kittens.
 so this stray cat, she obviously has no colony if she's wandering around
 and sneaking into zoo enclosures, so she's like hey! there's food here!
 what up, other cat, let's be friends, let's be friends and share that food
 and the bobcat is like ??222because actually wild cats are pretty
 cautious about initiating hostilities and anything new and aggressive
 makes them very worried. and the domestic cat is like 'haha cool, ok,
 we're friends now, big guy. no problems and the bobcat is like?m
 well...? ok? and then they are friends.
 the super interesting thing about most wild cat species is they don't really
 have the capacity to make friends on their own, especially outside of
 sibling bonds, but, if someone comes along and does all the friend-
 making themselves, theyll totally roll with it. zoo cats can get really
 attached to their caregivers- or, in this case, a very confident little
 calico demonstrating exactly why her species has been so darn
 successful over the last
 so anyway that is the best thing: bobcats are not equipped to make
 friends, but luckily for this bobcat this homeless lady did not give any
 shits and made friends anyway and now they are both happy

Being Alone, Memes, and Taken: LUCK DOESNT EXIST, HARD WORK DOES To help you understand: Hard work means putting a lot of effort in to our projects. Luck means things happening by chance rather than through our own efforts. Luck and hard work can seem like opposites, but they often are linked more closely than you might think. HOW??? Your boy millmentor has the (possible) answer! ✔️We get opportunities because of luck. We WORK hard to convert those opportunities into realities. ✔️Hard work can give us more of a sense of personal satisfaction. On the other hand, luck feels more like an unexpected gift. ✔️Hard work can bring its own ‘luck’ in the form of unexpected benefits. Under such circumstances, hard work can make us feel lucky. ✔️Sometimes, luck can advance us much further than hard work alone could. However, if we do not WORK hard, we might not be able to take full advantage of our luck. ✔️It is said that, “luck favors them who works hard.” We should never think that we not need to work hard. Remember, working hard is pre-requisites for success. ✔️We can feel lucky that we are able to work hard, too (for instance, lucky that we are not too ill to work). ✔️Luck can make us feel that there is a divine power rewarding us. Such feeling or thoughts should be taken as positive suggestions to work hard. - 😉Did I confuse you? I hope not!
