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.
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...
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.
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.
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
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.
