Was our first visit. I can see why so many people love it. Would love to return more frequently but it's a bit of a drive for us.

we go every 5-10 years. It's hard to get to for us too - but soooo magical. Where did you stay?

We stayed on MDI but north of Bar Harbor itself at the Best Western Acadia Park Inn which was more motel-ish than I usually expect from a Best Western but it was actually pretty nice. Surprisingly large bathrooms, decent price, breakfast included and convenient location.

Woman Trying To Start Bible Group Mistaken For Kidnapper: PTHPD "Police say the woman really was just looking for new bible study group members." https://patch.com/new-jersey/madison/s/gtiua/woman-trying-start-bible-group-mistaken-kidnapper-pthpd

I must've missed this viral post. =p "The resident ran away and reported the woman to police, recalling social media posts that claim people use fake bible study groups as a way to kidnap people, police said."

When proselytizing is mistaken for kidnapping, well, maybe it’s not just kidnappers that need to change.

@micah: The internet has corrupted gullible people into thinking badly about certain situations they wouldn't have given a thought to before. I am reminded of the emails that used to go around, back in the day, claiming all kinds of crap. Snopes was invented for a reason. And I think it got worse when the same gullible people that believed and forwarded all that crap, joined Facebook. https://readmyemail.blogspot.com/2009/01/gratuitous-email-rant.html

That’s a good point. It’s a two things are true at the same time to me. Good old fashion gossip circles and the news business traffic in hyper focus on unlikely but shocking events and per human nature the perception of risk gets way out of whack from actual statistical risk. My criticism was about the other true thing, that when proselytizing is decontextualized it’s dysfunctional qualities are suddenly more apparent. I’m in particular concerned with the Christian evangelical manifestation of the proselytizer because I used to be one. So that’s where I’m coming from on this story.

So according to the Ticketmaster agent I just live chatted w/, some unknown person logging into my account and somehow using credit cards that I don’t own to buy tickets isn’t fraud but user error? What?

"Subsequent links in the centipede seemed to have several responses to the discussion, and would likely have an interesting perspective had their responses not all come out sounding like, “Mmm hmm mrr mrrrrrmrrmmmhmmh mmmhm.”"

Instagrammers fall ill after mistaking toxic mining quarry in Spain for idyllic lake "Several people in Spain reported falling ill after bathing in Monte Neme — a toxic dump in Galicia, northern Spain — after mistaking it for an Instagram-friendly turquoise lake. " https://www.euronews.com/2019/07/17/instagrammers-fall-ill-after-mistaking-toxic-mining-quarry-in-spain-for-idyllic-lake

Comment

"It is not just Instagrammers in Spain who have been enticed by a seemingly picturesque landscape. The turquoise hue of lake Novosibirsk in Siberia, Russia, also attracted tourists. At first glance, the water looks crystal clear, with the lake dubbed the Siberian Maldives, but it is actually an industrial dump. Its owner, the Siberian Generating Company, attributed the bright colour of the water to calcium oxides — substances found in quicklime that are harmful to humans — and the shallow water."

Rarely do articles like these come with actual photos of the event and so I was amused to see the ones accompanying the article that looked like stock but weren't.
