How big is a 50×60 blanket?

The standard size for a throw blanket is 50 x 60 inches. It’s smaller than a bed blanket, but it can help with partial coverage and decoration. Most blankets that don’t have specific sizing information are probably standard-sized throw blankets. A king-size throw blanket measures 72 x 80 inches.


Earthquakes cause tsunamis.

Imagine you have a bucket full of water, and you shake it. What happens? It sloshes around in waves, right? That’s what happens when an earthquake strikes near the sea. But they don’t only cause tsunamis, they can make them stronger too. They do that by breaking parts of the land, which then fall into the sea. Imagine shaking the bucket you imagined earlier and dropping a rock into it at the same time. In addition to the waves, you get a big splash. The same idea applies to earthquakes and tsunamis.


“The most precious gift we can offer others is our presence. When our mindfulness embraces those we love, they will bloom like flowers.
