Off topic: 40 marathons in 40 days, ‘stealthing,’ surviving without oxygen, life expectancy without disease

An Australian woman is trying to run 40 marathons in 40 days to “raise awareness about water issues” around the world. What’s “stealthing“? Some women aren’t “sure if [it] is rape, but…” it’s the apparent trend of men taking condoms off during sex without their partners’ consent. Naked mole-rats can survive without oxygen for 18 minutes. And if all diseases were magically cured, here’s a simulation of how long people would live — until they are felled by cars, natural disasters or other humans.
