I concluded CNBC explains 'What Happens If There’s A Nuclear Attack' and 'The Big Business of Nuclear Weapons Manufacturing' by telling my readers "I have work to do, as final exams began [the day before] yesterday. Stay tuned for a retrospective tomorrow on Throwback Thursday." Because of that, I'm sharing a relatively brief look back and update to CNBC and SciShow explain why the world is running out of sand and what can be done about it by linking to SAND: The Sexiest Topic We’ve Ever Covered from Full Frontal with Samantha Bee.
Sand is everywhere and in everything. Of course, that means there’s a pretty nasty underground sand business run by some pretty nasty sand people, proving once again that there’s no resource too tiny for humans to kill each other and the planet over.Unfortunately, YouTube would not let me embed it, as this is an age restricted video that you have to watch on YouTube. You have been warned, but I didn't find it offensive, just a little risque, so I still recommend my readers click on the link to watch it. Enjoy the deep dive into one particular earth material and the Star Wars references that go with it.
I posted CNBC and SciShow explain why the world is running out of sand and what can be done about it on May 29, 2021, but did not share the link at Coffee Party USA's Facebook page until June 6, 2021, hence the spike in the middle of the graph above. That helped the entry earn 702 default and 896 raw entries during June 2021, ranking it third overall for the month. Combined with the 132 raw page views it had already accumulated during May 2021 and the trickle of readers after June 2021, it ended the 2021-2022 blogging year on March 20, 2022 with 1,055 raw page views ranking it twenty-eighth among entries posted last year and thirty-second overall during the eleventh year of Crazy Eddie's Motie News.
I promise to write a retrospective of the top posts about the pandemic tomorrow for Flashback Friday. In the meantime, follow over the jump for the linkspam of previous entries in the relevant retrospective series.
