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…"
that is horrifying, england.
Being from Texas this is scary. We have a tendency to jump into river/creek like bodies of water and think that shits cool.
dear god, let it be enough
best of “she wears short skirts”
Best TV OTP: Quinn and Rachel, Glee
Easily the best Faberry vid I’ve ever seen. My chest still hurts.
The best thing about this, is that it was all canon events and conversations. It wasn’t manipped to make it seem like these things happened or were said to each other. They actually said that, it happened.
what’s really sad is, we probably will never know: why quinn drew hearts around a caricature drawing of rachel; why rachel looks like someone just shot one of her dads when shes walking down the hallway and sees sam and quinn kiss; why rachel says she could understand finn cheating with quinn but not santana; im sure theres more but my heart and head hurts because i know we’ll never know
Or why Quinn understood Finn cheating on her with anyone BUT Rachel; why Quinn would put her own feelings on the line to “test” Finn to see if he was still into Rachel, for Rachel’s benefit; why the only consistency in Quinn’s life is the fact that she lets Rachel and only Rachel see her when she’s vulnerable; why Quinn would secure a yearbook page that only Rachel wanted and why Rachel would know exactly the right corsage Quinn would love on prom night.
If it were ANY other show, this would be a collection of beautiful foreshadowing.
Or why Rachel didn’t mind when Quinn slapped her, and instead proceeded to tell her she was the prettiest girl she ever met. Or why Rachel asked Finn what it was like to kiss Quinn. Or Rachel’s constantly making references to how pretty Quinn is. Or why Quinn has been the only person besides Kurt on the show who has supported Rachel and was even allowing herself to settle for Finn while pushing Rachel towards her dreams and telling her that she didn’t belong in Lima Ohio.
Or why the two times Finn stormed out, Rachel went after Quinn instead. Or why Quinn drew pornographic pictures of Rachel in the bathroom. Or why Quinn lights up whenever Rachel is singing, or looks so sad when she’s singing a song to Finn. Or why Quinn had to stare at the ceiling when Rachel was wearing her Britney outfit. Or why Quinn doesn’t blame Rachel for just giving away her biggest secret. Or why Rachel doesn’t hate Quinn after she’s bullied her so much.
I’ll just be over here sobbing.
Or why Quinn would give up the one thing she had always wanted -to be prom queen- in order to make Rachel win the title just so she would regain the confidence she had lost choking on her audition. Or why Rachel couldn’t stop thinking about Quinn after the accident. Or why Quinn ended up deciding to support Rachel even though she was against the wedding. Or why Rachel’s greatest accomplishment in her high school history would be to have become Quinn’s friends. Or why Quinn bought train tickets for Rachel in order to make sure that they didn’t lose touch. Or why Rachel made sure to talk Quinn out of making the biggest mistake of her life by telling everyone that Shelby had slept with Puck. Or why the first person that Quinn told her news of getting into Yale was Rachel. Or why Rachel saw right through Quinn’s facade and instead of pressuring her, told Quinn to go back to Glee only when she was ready. Or why Quinn couldn’t take her eyes off Rachel while she was singing Never Can Say Goodbye. Or why Rachel got mad at the Glee club because they were all ignoring the fact that Quinn was on a wheelchair. Or why Quinn was sure to reassure her that the accident wasn’t her fault. Or why Rachel had broke down crying after hearing Quinn say that.
Or why my heart aches and my stomach hurts and my everything just sobs whenever I think of Faberry and what could have been but never will.
Meet the Mona Lisa of the Prado, the earliest known copy of Da Vinci’s best portrait. Similarity in the undersketch of the painting indicates that this was very likely painted concurrently with the original Mona Lisa, by a student of Da Vinci.
There is much controversy in the art world over the question of whether or not to clean the fragile Mona Lisa, but her sister has been restored and some fairly odd later alterations removed to show the original vibrant colors and lighting. Some details, such as the sheerness of her shawl and the pattern on the neckline of her dress, have become utterly obscured in the original, but in the restored copy they’re perfectly clear.
It blows my mind a little bit to look at these two sisters side-by-side and imagine how much vivid detail could be hiding in the Mona Lisa under 500 years of rotten varnish.
THE COPY HAS EYEBROWS
Your response to a beautiful piece of artwork done by Leonardo Da Vinci himself is “SHES GOT EYEBROWS”. Alright. All intelligent life has been lost.
Yo Snooty McSnotwhine, the Mona Lisa’s vanished eyebrows have been the subject of debate and analysis in the art expert community for hundreds of years, long before your parents squirted water at each other from across the clown car and then honked their bicycle horns to indicate they really wanted to make a smug, insufferable little clown baby together.
