Qiandao Lake is a man-made lake located in Chun’an County, China, where archeologists have discovered in 2001 ruins of an underwater city. The city is at a depth of 26-40 meters and was named “Lion City”. There would have been 290 000 people living in this city during more than 1300 years. Touristic expeditions are projected.

What did I say? Did I not say this was dark-sided?
how about putting some POC on your show?
Can I get a black/brown person thats not a damn barbarian/slave or lying snake? How bout that for drawing my attention?
Does ANYBODY of color work at HBO? Like, this is the classic example of Missing the Point(TM). Wow, that they think to draw in more Black/Latino people is to use Hip-Hop and not cast them in diverse and significant roles in their programming, or hire them to write shows, or direct shows, or run shows, is really all kinds of problematic and why nearly 75% of their viewership is white. Don’t act like that concerns you when you pull nonsense like this, HBO. I mean seriously.
to the people who never followed me during game of thrones season?
welcome to the most intense 10 weeks of your life.

Reblogging is a must
Help comes when the person identifies the change they want and starts to believe it can actually happen. Whether it is overcoming an impossible family situation, making a career or study change, standing up to an oppressor, gaining relief from chronic physical pain, igniting creative inspiration, feeling less alone, or beginning to value their self worth, at the root of suicidal feelings is often powerlessness to change your life – not giving up on life itself.
these are incredible words. I have never been able to articulate this.
This baby elephant landed itself in a right old mess after falling down a railway embankment.
Stuck fast in the muddy ravine, its attempts to get free failed time and again. Luckily, a train was passing by and passengers, upset to see the forlorn animal in a pickle, convinced the driver to stop so they could free it.
While one commuter enticed the elephant to the top of the ditch by holding out tree branches for it to eat, others joined the rescue and eventually pulled the animal out of its predicament.
The calf suffered no injuries in the fall and probably learned not to stray too far from the herd in future following its muddy misadventure.
Officials say the elephant had been walking across rail tracks in Goalpara, in the state of Assam, north-east India, when it fell into the ditch.
Sleeping beauty is a really intriguing fairy tale. I mean, there’s so much to play with. This is my interpretation of Sleeping beauty and the fairies, which includes the mean fairy. She’s obviously inspired by Maleficent, who is the coolest. I really love that people adapting the tale often give the bad fairy a backstory. I really enjoyed the version they had in Castle Waiting too.
Bad fairies, good fairies, sleeping ladies. All cool stuff.
The Very Hungry Rust Monster is a mini-comic I made a few years back. I’ve seen it floating around Tumblr without attribution recently, so I’ve uploaded a higher-resolution version, properly credited.
Not many people know the stereotypical heart shape was meant to be two hearts fused together
Hey there. History nerd here… not many people know this “fact” because it’s not true. The universal heart shape we recognize today has nothing to do with the heart, actually. It has to do with early Roman birth control.
The Romans used a plant called silphium to prevent pregnancy. It was so effective that it became a critical part of Rome’s economy and daily life. It was literally so important to their culture that the image of it’s seed were even imprinted on currency.
It’s the exact shape of the heart we know today, and this is the first time it’s visage was ever recorded in history. It was so important to them, and so highly prized that they actually drove the plant into extinction by over harvesting it for use.
This shape was so ingrained in their society’s conscious as a symbol of sexual liberation that it became associated with all aspects of intimacy, eg. sex, unity, and love.
It’s not two hearts sewn together. It’s an ancient plant that Romans used to have gratuitous amounts of sex before condoms were around.
All right, sweethearts, what are you waiting for? Breakfast in bed? Another glorious day in the Corps!
you know whats fucking SAD AS HELL
every time theon watched ned stark chop of a man’s head, he was thinking in the back of his mind “that could be me”
every time ned stark had theon stand with him during the execution, theon was thinking, “that could be me”
and in the books when theon kicked the head that was a teenage prisoner trying his best to say "im not scared of you".
