SC school bus driver avoids squirrels, crashes into house, report says

A group of high school students went on “a little different school bus ride,” the Spartanburg Fire Department said.

As the six Spartanburg High School students were on their way to classes Friday morning, their bus driver swerved off the road, smacking the bus into a tree as it ran through a yard and bumped into a house, according to the fire department.

The bus driver told police she tried to avoid hitting two squirrels that ran into the road, Fox Carolina reported.

Men's Only 'Cuddling Group' Aims To Redefine Masculinity For The Millennial Generation

The Blaze got even more details about the event.
Group organizers suggest holding your fellow man "motorcycle-style," which is described as the "holder," who "sits on a pillow on the floor with his back against a wall or sofa."

"The 2nd man; the one being held, sits in front of the holder facing forward so his back rests on the holder's chest, his head on the shoulder," the page adds. " The holder will embrace the man around the chest and, in time, may be asked for additional forms of affection such as hand holding, hair or beard stroking, back rubbing, hand massages, etc."

Other options reportedly include "spooning," and the "cuddle train."

^I don't know if or why we need to return to the moon.(?)
I do know that President Trump will get skinned by the fake media over this. (Only because he suggested first, NOT others.)

You've got the Apple Watch with AliveCor KardiaBand (for EKG) and a QardioArm smart blood pressure monitor that is run by the watch (or something like those)? How are these working for you?

I'm still waiting for a competitor's to make and ship one that does BP only. Don't need the rest of the stuff. Most important part of the high tech toilet seat, is don't bear down while using it. Don't understand why? Ask an ambulance EMT.

India anti-satellite missile test a 'terrible thing,' NASA chief says

India's anti-satellite missile test created at least 400 pieces of orbital debris, the head of NASA says -- placing the International Space Station (ISS) and its astronauts at risk.

NASA administrator Jim Bridenstine said Monday that just 60 pieces of debris were large enough to track. Of those, 24 went above the apogee of the ISS, the point of the space station's orbit farthest from the Earth.

"That is a terrible, terrible thing to create an event that sends debris at an apogee that goes above the International Space Station," Bridenstine said in a live-streamed NASA town hall meeting. "That kind of activity is not compatible with the future of human spaceflight."

Study: West Virginians lead nation in TV watching

A study by Verizon says that West Virginians watch more television than people in any other state in the country.

The report came out Wednesday and used data from the federal Bureau of Labor Statistics.

It found that people in West Virginia averaged about four-and-a-half hours in front of the tube per day. The study also used Google Trends data to determine that the state’s TV genre of choice is soap operas.
