Stalactite supervisor John Sato examines new formations with disappointment.
"A proper stalactite grows downward," said Sato, "But these younger stalactites are rebellious and have little respect for tradition. We’ve caught them growing sideways, diagonally, I saw one just yesterday that grew down at first but then went straight back up again into the rock ceiling."
Numerous theories abound as to why the stalactites are growing more bold. Some blame global warming for chemical shifts in the dripping minerals. Others feel television is to blame. But Sato has another theory:
"Many stalactites today come from modern rock. Classic rock held superior morals and produced straight stalactites. But modern rock, such as hard rock or acidic rock aren’t so solid. To keep stalactites on course, we must examine both the rocks and the role played by the minerals, the substance they communicate downward. Only with a comprehensive study of rock and role will we come to an understanding of the problem, and begin to move toward a solution. Such as an opaline silica solution, or a 50% fluorite solution."
Others feel that blaming rock is a cop-out, and that the problem lies with society’s standard of binary geological roles. Said Peter Saenz of GLAAD (Geological Land Appraisal And Diagnostics), “Who are we to say a stalactite has to be straight and hook up with a stalagmite? Maybe some stalactites are meant to meet other stalactites, maybe some stalactites want to find their own way through the caves. It’s not for us to dictate.”
This viewpoint has proven controversial, with high ranking clergy at the Vatican stating, “The Bible clearly states that speleothems are between one stalactite and one stalagmite, and that it is the stalactite’s role to descend upon the other.”
Peter Saenz retorts that the Vatican needs to mind its own business about what others go down on.
I know this post has already been around for a while but I think it’s not getting enough attention, and I really need your help (again, sorry) to spread the word.
Basically, my financial situation hasn’t been really good for the past few years, and my family is really going through a lot, since none of us have a job and my mom’s struggling to pay for University. We live in Spain, so if you know a bit about international economics you’ll know Spain isn’t in a good situation. People are being evicted, the government has approved horribly unfair budget reforms regarding education and the student’s fee has gone up (I’m nearly finished my first semester and I still have three payments left to pay) and in Europe, after Greece, Spain is the most affected country by the crisis. So naturally, things aren’t going well for Spanish people. Thing is, we are not Spanish, we are Venezuelan, and Venezuela is in a worse situation. We can only get money from the two or three properties we have left there and exchange it into euros once a month, that if the renters pay in time, and when we exchange it there’s almost nothing left because inflation is so high in Vnzla the price of the euro has almost reached 100Bsf=1 euro each. So the few bucks we receive aren’t even enough for my mom to pay the rent. She and my aunt are going to the bank tomorrow to ask for another loan so they can manage until the next month and send me some money because I’m studying in Madrid (they live in Málaga).
That’s not even half of it, but if I told you everything this post would be too long. So, I decided to take commissions a while ago because I could really use the income and lift some weight off my family’s shoulders. Just a bit is enough.
- I can draw OC’s, any character you want, NSFW stuff too (which depends in what kind of nsfw of course, there are limits to my comfort).
- My art style is kinda simple, but I promise to try and make the best out of it if you commission me, of course.
- I can also make super quick doodles for 3$
- The payment will be through paypal, still, if you know of similar ways to pay and stuff, tell me and i’ll check it out! Whatever is easier for you.
If you can’t commission me but like the style, wanna recommend it to your friends, or just try help me out in any way, you’re fucking amazing and I love you!!
THANK YOU to all of you whom have already helped me spread the word, and the one’s who continue to reblog this!
Wow this is very long
basically yeah, all said above, visit my artblog if you wanna check out my drawings!
please spread the word!
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.

EVERYONE PLEASE. PAY ATTENTION. Especially if you’re Asian.
On January 30th, 2014, California Senate just passed SCA-5, a legislation that would repeal portions of California Proposition 209.
In condensed words, this bill allows schools to DISCRIMINATE AGAINST ASIANS.
To understand SCA 5, we have to remember what Prop. 209 is. In November 1996, Proposition 209 (also known as the California Civil Rights Initiative) amended the state constitution to prohibit state government institutions from discriminating against, or granting preferential treatment to, any individual or group on the basis of race, sex, color, ethnicity, or national origin in the operation of public employment , public education, or public contracting. In the 18 years that Prop 209 has been in effect, California has become the most diversified state in the US.
State Senator Ed Hernandez, the one who introduced this bill, claims that due to Prop 209, Non-Asians have a harder time being admitted into state universities.
This bill will ALLOW THE STATE to use RACE, SEX, COLOR, ETHNICITY, OR NATIONAL ORIGIN as a consideration for accepting students or hiring employees. SCA-5 is out to punish Asian-Americans simply because we set the bar too high for getting into schools with high exam scores.
Asian-Americans often need test scores hundreds of points higher than applicants from other ethnic groups to have an equal chance of admission.
This bill goes against EQUAL PROTECTION, our 14th Amendment, as American citizens!
IF WE ALLOW THIS BILL TO PASS. WE HAVE STUNTED GENERATIONS FROM GROWING AND EXPANDING THEIR MINDS, THEIR HORIZONS OF UNDERSTANDING.
IF WE ALLOW THIS BULLSHIT BILL TO PASS, WHO’S NEXT UNTIL THE LAST RACE WHOM IS DEEMED “WORTHY” OF EDUCATION IS LEFT STANDING?!
Xudong Sun, president of American Anhui Association of Scholars and Students, told Xinhua that this legislation is racial and is a serious discrimination against Asian Americans.
He said right now at the University of California and state universities, Asian students account for 36 percent, but Bill SCA-5 would restrict Asians to 13 percent.
He said under-represented minority groups, like African Americans and Hispanics need protection, but such protection should not be made at the expense of Asian Americans.
Here is the Whitehouse.gov petition: WE NEED 100,000 SIGNATURES BY MARCH 18TH. THAT’S 10 DAYS FROM NOW.
Here is the Change.org petition.
PLEASE SIGN THESE TWO TO GET THIS BILL TORN TO SHREDS! and PLEASE. SPREAD THE WORD.

These are just some of the many ways members of the LGBT community identify themselves in a beautiful photo series from San Francisco-based photographer Sarah Deragon.
Deragon’s “The Identity Project” has taken her around the country as she “seeks to explore the labels we choose to identify with when defining our gender and sexuality.” Her portraits show the amazing diversity and vibance of a queer community that for too long has been defined by outsiders.
