Leg Warmers

I was trying to find out who is credited with the creation of legwarmers but all I found were articles about to popularization of the fashion/fitness accessory. The articles mainly named of course the fitness craze of the late 70s and the 80s, Jane Fonda, and movies like Flashdance and Footloose. But we all know that stuff.

Also in my research I found that there is a patent for “leg warmers“. Sadly it turned out it was not the item coveted by aerobic and dance enthusiasts but a protective garment that retains heat in extreme weather, that kind of resemble chaps, which were invented by Wade and Brent Wruck.

How long for a headstone?

Well from some very basic googling apparently this time period can vary drastically. It depends on design, size, material, and often an approval process. But for something “basic” it would be a minimum of 6-8 weeks.

That is literally what I googled and it was the first thing that came up.

I was talking about the 1964 painting “The Son of Man” by the Belgian surrealist painter René Magritte.   If that doesn’t help, here is the what it looks like.

American Gods

My confusion with “American Gods” stems from the show having 2 full seasons but those seasons are only 8 episodes each. The show has been on since 2017 and the 3rd season is supposed to be released this year but I am not sure how the current state of things has affected that.

Probability

Well after a quick google search and the reading of a couple of very depressing articles, according to the National Safety Council, here are the top 5 ways people are most likely to die.

1. Heart Disease

2. Cancer

3. Stroke

4. Motor Vehicle Accident – You would think this means car accidents but it doesn’t as that is 8th on the list.

5. Intentional Self Harm
