Doesn’t that look beautiful?
Like something you’d find on one of those soft/pale/rosy/grunge blogs?
Well nothing too rosy on my blog.
The Bolton Strid in England is one of the most innocent looking streams.
Though it looks like you could just hop across the rocks, but if you miss you will die for sure. It packs very rapid currents just a couple of feet below its surface. No one really knows how deep it really is. Nobody who has ever fallen into the Strid has survived. It has a 100% fatality rate.
It’s always the things I google expecting to be false that wind up being horribly true.
"It’s relatively common for people to assume they can jump the creek, walk across its stones or even wade through it (again, just looking at it, the Strid really seems to be only knee-deep in places, and certainly not the instant, precipitous drop into a watery grave that it is). Most of the time, they never even find the body. Which means there are just dozens of corpses down there, pinned to the walls of the underground chasms, waiting for you to join them…"
"It’s exactly how water works in a video game: It looks all stupid and harmless, but the second your foot touches the surface, you get some bullshit drowning animation and die instantly."
I’m really curious to know if any of my followers are going to MCM Comic Con London this week…
The Lao Diaspora Project
DIASPORA: A sense of belonging to more than one history, to more than one time and place, to more than one past and future. - John Docker
“Do you have photos worth a thousand words? Does it tell a story about your family’s history? Does it reflect who you are? Does it speak of the journey of where you came from and where you are now?" - LLOTP
Little Laos on the Prairie are accepting photos of Lao-Americans and/or their families by OCTOBER 31ST, 2014, telling a story of how they are able to reach the United States of America & the diaspora they face.
“Why should I share my story?
- The Lao community’s stories will help educate the public and officials about our shared journey that has been left out of mainstream history.
- The chance for your story to be honored and featured on LLOTP’s website, highlighted in a mini-booklet, turned into a painting, and/or shared in a public gallery.
- The opportunity to reflect, relate and learn from others in the Lao Diaspora experience.”
Please send your photo if you can. Let’s help support their project!
changing my boyfriend’s name to Eve so when i introduce him to my homophobic family they’d be like “the bible said Adam and Eve not Adam and…wait” and it’ll basically crush their beliefs because they can’t use an argument against that
And that’s ladies and gentlemen how you end homophobia
If all you do is fight for your own life, then your life is worth nothing.
