A brother has pictures of a waterspout going by his house on Tampa Bay [not a video] ... awesome looking thing, but there just don't seem to be stories about damage that I come across

>>>

Has a water spout ever killed anyone?

A few intense waterspouts have caused deaths when they moved inland over populated areas, and they certainly constitute a threat to small craft; however, there are few authentic cases of large ships being destroyed by a spout.

Can a waterspout sink a ship?

The Malta tornado of 1551 was the earliest recorded occurrence of a deadly waterspout. It struck the Grand Harbour of Valletta, sinking four galleys and numerous boats, and claiming hundreds of lives.

Can a waterspout pick up a shark?

Although no shark tornadoes have ever been reported, tornadoes and waterspouts have been known to lift animals like fish, frogs and even alligators and drop them ashore, often still alive and kicking.

Do you have any memories of being in a room with wet clay pots? Like terracotta flowerpots. I do. Turns out clay pots with water in them work well as evaporative coolers. No electricity needed. Of course, actual flowerpots almost always have holes in the bottom but wetting the clay, as in a fountain also works.

just looking stuff up about this, prompted by 'silly billy'

When did England stop being an absolute monarchy?

1215

When did England stop being a monarchy? England stopped being a total monarchy in 1215, when Magna Carta came into effect. Magna Carta is a document put into legislation to stop the monarchy from having total control and that the King must be under lawful order as well.

When did the British monarchy last have power?

From the end of the 17th century, monarchs lost executive power and they increasingly became subject to Parliament, resulting in today's constitutional Monarchy

Why was William 4th called Silly Billy? [OK, this is what I started with... he is the King who preceded Queen Victoria]

Less flatteringly, he was also known as 'Silly Billy' on account of his shortcomings in judgement, tact and intellect. Disinterested in pomp and ceremony, William was a different kind of monarch from his brother George IV - he was even known to walk around London unaccompanied!

anytime you don't need the features of a bigger, better storage bag, you should use a fold-top plastic bag, since these are free. OK, not really free, but there isn't much difference. Yesterday I noticed the price, 150 bags in the box, price $2.50 ... that is 1.6 cents per bag. All the other storage bags are 10 cents at least, with some others getting to be a little pricey.

Now this is an odd thing to write about, I admit it, but I've wondered why the fold-top bags are so cheap

>>>

why are fold-top storage bags so cheap?

the package may be only slightly less expensive, but has 2-3 times as many bags in each package. [only thing that comes up. I guess that they can get so many in a box is one reason.]

How many plastic sandwich bags are used a year?

By the 1960s, almost every American household was using them. In present day, Americans use 100 billion plastic sandwich bags every single year.May 27, 2022 [all plastic is now the focus of some ire]
__

Why should we stop using plastic bags?

Plastic bags are difficult and costly to recycle and most end up on landfill sites where they take around 300 years to photodegrade. They break down into tiny toxic particles that contaminate the soil and waterways and enter the food chain when animals accidentally ingest them.
