Lost Underwater Lion City: Rediscovery of China’s ‘Atlantis

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. A diving into Chinese Antiquity in the next part of the article.

More Macklemore, less Robin Thicke.

And yet a huge percentage of Tumblr hates him. Not trying to be confrontational, but could someone please explain to me why this is?

Because he is a straight white guy and Tumblr isn’t always right. 

oh my god if i have to see this post on my dashboard one more time
all right, okay. let’s talk.
last year on a slow day in law/society class, my teacher showed us a movie where charlize theron was one of the only female workers in a mine in minnesota. she experienced a fuckload of sexual harassment, ofc; it was when she started daring to complain about the sexual harassment that shit got really bad.
i remember watching charlize theron go through all these awful things, and i remember getting vaguely invested in her as a heroine; yeah, you go charlize theron, you continue to work despite these harassment and assaults, you stand up for yourself when people shun you in the community, etc
and there was this climactic scene where the miners’ union was having a meeting, and charlize theron was going up to complain about something or tell people she was suing the company or smth, i can’t remember, and she stood there in front of this huge crowd of angry men who were booing her and catcalling her and shouting the worst things at her and she’s getting really miserable
and then her father, who also works at the mine, goes up and says “hey, you’re all jerks, think of your mothers & daughters, would you treat them this way,” and the miners are like “oh wow charlize theron totally does deserve our support etc” and then the movie continues
but all i could think was— what, so they’ll listen to a man but not to the woman who’s actually affected? why doesn’t charlize theron get to save the day and be the hero? in a conversation about sexism, why is his voice more important than hers?
we’re not mad at macklemore. or— well, we are mad at macklemore, but we’re more mad at the system that prioritizes macklemore over actual queer rappers, over actual rappers of color, who have been saying exactly the same shit for decades and been ignored.
we’re mad at the system that gives more attention to straight allies than queer activists.
we’re mad at the system that only supports queer rights when they are quiet and polite and have cute graphics.
we’re mad at the system that makes macklemore a hero of of the queer struggle but doesn’t know marsha p. johnson’s name.
we’re mad at the system that will listen to macklemore when he comes to defend us— but won’t listen to us.
we’re mad at the system that has constructed itself to make damn certain that only straight cis white boys can be heroes.
it’s fuckin’ great that macklemore thought he was gay in third grade. but the system would rather give his third grade gay freakout the spotlight than our actual whole-life queer experiences— and that’s not okay.

I really like what Macklemore does, and I still agree with this post. I can like his music and his work and still be pissed off at the way he benefits from an unfair system.

The Alice in Wonderland restaurant in Tokyo, Japan. You go up an elevator and enter a small room with a giant Alice in Wonderland book. The Mad Hatter opens the first page, to reveal a long winding tunnel full of large book pages, clocks and maps. When you reach the restaurant, you are greeted by maids in blue Alice outfits. The menu opens to reveal a miniature room complete with working clock. I ordered card tortilla chips, rose spaghetti and themed drinks. 

Seriously Disney USA, why can’t we have this?!

VIXY.

WE NEED TO GO TO THE AIRPORT.

Each house helping their disabled/mentally ill/neurodiverse housemates in their own special ways~!

  • Gryffindors forming a group of volunteer students to walk students with PTSD to classes or through the castle at night, so they can always be in the presence of people they trust.
  • Gryffindors hexing bullies who mock D/deaf students’ signed spells.
  • Gryffindors petitioning to change old fashioned rules about taking OWLs and NEWTs that put ADHD students at an unfair disadvantage.
  • Gryffindors who know that bravery comes in many forms, who are openly and unabashedly impressed when their depressed housemates summon the strength to get out of bed on bad days, and will punch anyone who thinks having a panic attack is indicative of cowardice.
  • Gryffindors insisting that The Fat Lady give out signed passwords that D/deaf, mute, and nonverbal students can use, in addition to spoken passwords.
  • Ravenclaws staying on top of all the newest advances in sensory spells and calming potions so if one of their autistic housemates has a meltdown they can be sure to help them in the best way possible.
  • Ravenclaws helping learning disabled students come up with mnemonics to better remember information.
  • Ravenclaws having a bookcase full of writing about famous disabled, mentally ill, and neurodiverse wixen, so they can give students the representation they don’t find in traditional history of magic courses.
  • Ravenclaws getting really excited and enthusiastic when an autistic student infodumps on them, because knowledge.
  • Ravenclaws being fascinated by the diverse ways students take in, process, and deliver information, and being deeply and personally offended by the idea that there is any “wrong way” to learn.
  • Hufflepuffs always having a supply of treats and blankets when their depressed classmates feel overwhelmed, making sure they know their offer to form a cuddle pile is always open.
  • Hufflepuffs spending their breaks sewing weights into quilts and robes for autistic wixen.
  • Hufflepuffs understanding that “just and fair” doesn’t mean “treat everyone exactly the same no matter what” but “understand each individual’s needs, abilities and privileges, and make sure they have the resources they need to do their best”.
  • Hufflepuffs who are amazing, patient listeners, and always down for a feelings jam, venting, infodumping, or all of that at once.
  • Hufflepuffs who spend all of their free time learning how to sign so they can be better friends with their D/deaf housemates.
  • Slytherins teaching autistic students to read subtle body language cues and project confidence.
  • Slytherins helping to tailor dress robes of a wheelchair user so they look stunning but don’t get their skirts caught up in their wheels.
  • Slytherins who come from rich families “forgetting” galleons in the rooms of friends who don’t have enough money to pay for the latest magic mobility devices.
  • Slytherins letting the Bloody Baron know to make himself scarce when students who are triggered by the sight of blood are nearby.
  • Slytherins making up nonverbal codes so that students can alert their housemates if they’re about to have a panic attack or breakdown and still look totally aloof and collected.

Hogwarts students of all houses coming together due to shared neurology and ability, forming mixed house cliques and not giving a crap~!

Winter Soldier Hoodie

We’re re-opening the pre-orders for another batch of Winter Soldier Hoodies.

You can find all of the info on these fantastic hoodies here. Including price, time table, sizing, etc.

Everyone who picked one up at Emerald City Comic Con has been raving about how great these are, and we have to agree. We were so happy with the quality when they arrived. Mick (who is the not-Bucky pictured above) wears his everywhere, including to all the viewings of Cap2.

This round of pre-orders will be open until April 25th. 

If you have friends with Winter Soldier/Bucky feels, you should point them in this direction ;)
