You da man! It's now officially proven you can make the front page with 19 upvotes.

I think gifs can do that. It's tougher for a meme to do that. I had a meme get to the front page with 22 upvotes, but that was the only time that happened for me with under 25.

Memes can get there in the lower twenties if the upvotes come fast enough and there's no downvotes against it.

Yeah, the downvotes make a difference. When I do political memes, they generally take longer to get to the front page. I still wish I could see the downvotes. I miss the upvote/downvote bar. lol

Hmm... makes you wonder. I just checked and I've only done 4 GIFS in my flip career. I did two 2 years ago because Virginia Penny begged me too. (I think her and Kimberly and Craziness are one in the same. The third one I did has been stuck in submitted since July 4th 2017 :)

The 4th one was a repost during repost week. Just not a GIF guy I guess.

LOL! That's definitely one of the best "hold my beer" moments ever on the 4th of July. Wonder what the mods saw in it that it still has not featured after 13 months!

That's awesome!!! It was on page 2 with 15 upvotes when I left for work this morning and the next time I got a chance to look it already had 32. Gifs seem to have their own set of rules for better or worse...

That's pretty similar to what I saw a couple years ago north of San Bernardino. I was farther away, but still...

The one I saw two years ago was so big, it crossed right over interstate 15. They had it shut down for a while. When they reopened it and I drove on it again, you could see all the vegetation on both sides of the highway was completely scorched and burned up. I even saw what I think was the remnants of a semi that had completely burned up. At the top of Cajon Pass there was a restaurant and a gas station. The restaurant was completely destroyed but somehow the gas station escaped damage.

That's crazy that the gas didn't blow!!!

I forgot to mention that the restaurant and gas station were about 50-75 yards away from each other. But yeah, even the heat from the fire could have ignited the gasoline fumes :0

The gas station owner probably defended it against the fire with water hoses &c.

The owner would have been evacuated before the flames reached the gas station

Looking up the talk of banning straws was interesting. Plastic takes up to 400 years to degrade into the envorment. Also, they cost millions of dollars a year to make. Plasic itself is an issue that needs talking about. My biggest concern is those with disablities who need the straws. They should make alternatitves before making such a ban. Otherwise, I think it's a good start.

These are inexpensive stainless straws, they even come with a little rubber thing so that you don't freeze you lips to them.

You may complain about the straw thing; but when you consider the negligence of the current administration and its refusal to combat the climate change that is making these fires worse and worse every year, I'd take every victory for environmental justice that I can get if I were you.

Feels like that in the UK at the minute. Had a heatwave since mid June, and only two days of rain since then. In Fahrenheit, we've had temperatures hitting 97 degrees. That's unheard of here, in a country at the same latitude as the south of Russia

Luckily we've only had 1 or 2 days this summer over 100 degrees.

I can only imagine how many accidents must have occurred from dipshits looking at the fire instead of paying attention to the road. Hell, I'd be one of those dipshits.

Actually the fires themselves are a natural occurrence that accomplish the task of regulating the amount of trees in a given area. The real problem comes from the fact that rising temperatures have caused the fires to burn longer, farther, and with more intensity.

Did you know the fires probably have NOTHING to do with the climate and everything to do with arson?
