The Amazing Underwater Forest of Lake Kaindy
What makes Lake Kaindy truly remarkable is that it contains an underwater forest. Visible on the lakes surface are the tall, dried-out tops of submerged Spruce trees that rise above the water’s surface like the masts of sunken ships. They are the only sign of the amazing frozen forest below the water’s surface.
The water is so cold (even in summer the temperature does not exceed 6 degrees) that the pine needles remain on the trees, even after a hundred years of being submerged. During the winter, the lake freezes and becomes a popular spot for ice diving.
The lake is 400 meters long and is located in Kazakhstan’s portion of the Tian Shan Mountains, about 129 km from the city of Almaty. The lake was created after an earthquake in 1911 triggered a large landslide blocking the gorge and forming a natural dam.

Virtual supermarkets are popping up in subway stations in South Korea, where commuters can virtually shop for items while waiting for the train to come. Customers simply scan an item’s QR code using the free “Homeplus” app and can have it delivered to their doorstep before they even get home. Ranked as the 2nd most hard-working country in the world to Japan, South Korea is rewarding its workers with this timesaving gem.
Wow! I kinda love this idea.

Bowie as Mephistopheles ♥ from the opera Faust by Charles Gounod. Via waronporcelain:.
Always reblog Bowie.
Mephisto, like Mercutio, is a role I have very very particular standards about. This? This I have absolutely no problem with whatsoever :)
I have to admit, while this is some HARDCORE AWESOME HISTORY, I am a little disappointed because I thought “The defenestration of Prague” was not a defenestration that happened in Prague (as locale) but the defenestration of the entire city (as subject). Like the Defenestration of Jimmy or something. I was imagining some kind of mob of, I don’t know, Visigoths or Huns or something, rampaging through the city, throwing every single Pragueite out of every window they could find.
History is great, yo, but still does not rival my Monty-Python-esque imagination.
If it’s any comfort, the First Defenestration of Prague involved like half the town council getting thrown from a window by an angry priest, and the king reportedly dropping dead of shock at the news. (Like, he definitely died, but 1419 wasn’t known for their super-accurate autopsies.)
Wait, wait, AN angry priest? Like just one? One priest threw half the town council out a window?
Had he been previously dosed with ye olde gamma rays?
